    Where do you guys currently have your collections placed at? Im thinking of moving it into my darker hallway but I kinda dont want to in a way. Ive tried moving my detolfs into different areas around the house and I just cant seem to get rid of the glaring sunlight. Everytime I think I found the perfect spot then I find out as the sun moves the light moves as well onto my shelf at different times.

    Only reason I kinda dont want to move it to the hallway is because no one ever walks by it so maybe that will give me an excuse to walk over there lol.

    Any opinions?

    Mine is split between bedroom and hallway right outside bedroom. Neither place gets direct sunlight. The hall gets great ambient light and I walk by all the time so that's great if you have a place with lots of ambient light, or stick a bookcase right next to a window, which is what I have in the bedroom. Again no direct sunlight, but during the day it looks nice.

    As soon as you said 'darker hallway' my brain thought 'bad idea'.

    Bedroom, as my girlfriend and I rent the room. I also have stuff in the corner of the garage, but that's for storage bins & my customizing workdesk.

    I have two detolfs in our bedroom which being south facing doesn't really get hit by the sun until around 4pm, but the blinds are drawn anyway, and one in the hallway outside where lighting is ambient. Then the dudes I am playing with get to hang around the dining room table and on the stereo speakers. I love Mrs Napalm, she's an understanding sort.

    I have a small room for my desktop computer, some papers and my collection.
    The collection has started seeping out into the livingroom though.

    I keep mine in my office. I've got my Transformers and LotR figures on a couple of bookcases on one wall and trying to work out how to do my Star Wars collection on the opposite wall. The blinds are usually closed so sun damage isn't much of an issue.

    I've got a bunch of shelves in my room. And they've also started taking over my dresser and bedside table and desk.

    I've pretty much just got Transformers scattered all over my room.
