So many of you have read and participated in this thread about the $600 Toy on the $15 Shelf. http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/transformers-toy-discussion/673559-600-toy-15-shelf.html Saving you a long read, I basically posed the question of why would a collector such as ourselves so eagerly spend what can become thousands of dollars on transformers toys, but not nearly anything on a display in which to show them in? Many opinions were brought up, and I learned a lot! There are some out there who DO NOT CARE about displaying their TF toys. There are some out there who DO NOT CARE what YOU think about how they display their TF toys, despite their effort one way or the other. There are some out there who DO NOT HAVE SPACE. There are some out there who DO NOT HAVE MONEY. There are some out there who THINK A PROPER DISPLAY IS SHOWING RESPECT TO THE TOY. There are some out there who think A PROPER DISPLAY IS A SUBJECTIVE TERM. We can go on all day long obviously. What I ended up taking away from the thread was that if you are happy with your display the way YOU have it: then good for you. Do not let ANYONE take anything away from that if that is how you feel. No-one can say what is right or wrong for you except you. Now then, I got a ton of calls in that thread like this: Listen, this is not about me, or anyone being better than you. I am not. Not by a long shot. In my personal opinion, it makes sense to have a small investment of shelving and lighting to MATCH the large investment of a collection. I say investment not because TF toys are a desposit on a college education, but because if you spend money on something: it has worth to you. Therefore, in my humble opinion, you should treat something of worth like it is worth something. After going 11 pages (at 40 posts per page, haha) I read a lot, I learned a lot, and I made some decisions. I decided that you could have a badass TF display for under $450. So, here I present to you for consideration: My Collection and Display. Please bear in mind, I literally started 3 weeks ago. Everything you see here TF related, and the cases, were obtained within the last 21 days. I know my collection is very small at the moment, but it will not be for long. The plan is that 100% of the shelf space will be used for TF toys. For now, I have filled in the shelves with other items I own so the shelves are not vacant. I estimate that this setup can hold around 500 toys or so. At a cost of under $450 total, I really feel like a nice, clean, mature looking display is in the budget of many of the collectors here, especially the ones who so early spend $350+ on a single toy.
