Thought i would share a few photos of my collection after it made the big trip from Germany to Kansas(Ft. Riley), a before and after look. It took about 6 hours to get them set up, i still have some more to do but it doesnt look too bad.

Nice work. I'm in the middle of the same thing at the moment. I moved house last week, but the room the toys are going in needs a lick of paint and I need to buy in some more plastic shelving units from Blackspur to match my existing ones and get some glass cut to go between them before the 10 huge storage boxes turn back into a collection on display. I may end up setting up a couple of units with the expanded Classics line once the painting is out of the way to tide me over while I source the rest of the bits.

Thanks, it was a pain, packing it all up and then setting it all up. I would like to do more, but have to wait until i retire from the Army. I would like to have all of them in glass cases with lights but for now, i have what i have. Can't wait to see yours when your done, sounds like you have alot and look forward to seeing your photos.

I hear you on the packing. I started last month with everything being transformed to it's most compact mode and bagged up with accessories before being boxed and finished on the morning of moving day chucking what hadn't been done yet, junkers and random parts into the last couple of boxes. Not looking forward to sorting those out. I've been meaning to do collection photos for ages but have never been entirely happy with my set up. Matching shelving and a need for photographic records for insurance purposes should be the spur I need to finally get my ass in gear.

Any chance of some shelf by shelf shots of your set up? I can pick out a fair few figures (Micron Legend Shockwave has me a little jealous) but a lot of them are getting lost in the mix at the distance these were taken from. Or my eyes are just getting old.

Well i packed all mine in rubber maid tubs and left them all in their robot mode. Took about 10 tubs but I packed them carefully and they made it from Germany just fine. I am working on close up photos, I had posted some previsouly,, the title is updated photos from Germany, that might give you an idea. But i will get somemore posted.

You need to do something about that window or all your toys are going to be damaged.

You're welcome. It's an awesome collection, don't want to see it get mucked up from sun damage.

BTW, where did you get the large Megatron standee?
