    My collections keeps growing even if I sell thing I dont think I need,
    Being mostly a MIB-MISB G1 collector I find myself running out of room often.
    I do collect Classic-Henkei Universe.
    Everytime I sell my loose classic, more arrive.
    Some times I have 2 or 3 of the same fig.
    I bought and Sold Sixshot like 3 times..lol Now I have 1.

    1 Orginal Rodimus Loose, 1 Tru Rodimus Reissue MISB, 1 Takara 25th MISB.

    All the Henkei and Classics sealed,

    Or Soundwave, TFC, TRU and Orginal Flavor.

    Last Night I went Crazy trying to find more room but it looks like its time to sell again to get more room.
    Man it just dont end.

    I did, when I was using the top of a shelving unit with a peice of foamboard for a base to display my figures.

    Then I got a bookcase that's still got some room in it for more figures.

    I have only 3 shelves with which to display my figures. I reserved the whole first shelf for G1. Its becoming difficult to have Animated, Universe, ROTF, and Assorted on the other two shelves.


    Fortunately, I also have a number of crates under the bed where I am currently storing the remaining ones.

    Yeah. With the ROTF stuff I've run out of room and am starting to pile stuff all over my desk, but I ordered another bookcase to put them in.

    About every other line. I mostly rearrange shelving and box up what I'm not interested in looking at daily.

    All my beast era figures take up the space on my dresser and have over 40 TFs on my desk, they have taken over all available space in my room.

    I am slowly beginning to run out of room. I keep most of my collection in storage, but I might need a bigger storage room in the future.

    I'm desperately running out of room. I have store some in my closet and some I even hide in my entertainment center, of course where no one can see them

    I've pretty much crammed what shelf space I've got in my room. Unless I get a new display case, and make room for it, then I'm pretty much left with piling what TFs who don't have a place to be displayed on my daybed. I really don't feel like cramming them all into Rubbermaid tubs.

    I sold a bunch of stuff months ago to reduce my collection and increase the available storage space, but it's still not enough. Now I have around 70pcs that I need to sell and I just haven't gotten around to it. That's why I only bought 6 toys so far this year and probably won't buy more than 3 the rest of the year.

    I've not had enough room for years. I've always been cursed with lack of storage/display space wherever I've lived and I can't say no when I find a cool something-or-other to add to my collection, no matter how big it is. When I finally got a house that could have finally accommodated, it came with my better half who is also a TF collector so we ran out of space within a year.

    This issue has, however, made me a supremely skilled Tetris player.
