    Just right now I moved my Cybertron shelf to a lower level to fit Optimus, Megatron, and Wing Saber. I put my Armada and RID stuff on the shelf where the Cybertron leaders Optimus, Megatron, and ultra Wing Saber used to be displayed on. I love the big, bunched up look of my Cybertron shelf now actually, it's what I was aiming for.

    I've rearrange my collection twice in the last year. Mostly I just move stuff between shelves to make more room for future purchases.

    Depends. If I don't need to move stuff for space reasons, then I generally change poses every month or so. However I do tend to rearrange things because I'm adding stuff or reorganizing every couple of weeks, but I try to keep things displayed with space to add so I don't have to totally mess with stuff to fit more figures.

    Every...Month or 2 since I've been getting more prime figures as of late, I'm making room for them.

    I don't have a lot of figures but I do move around once or twice a month to make room for new stuff

    Those who use detolfs. Do you guys put figures on top of them as well. I'm starting to run out of room and debating on putting stuff up top.

    Maybe once a year. Even then it's really just shifting figures around for space.

    Probably twice a year.I'll go through everything and pull out figures that I don't want anymore,and then I'll rearrange everything else to make it look good.

    Pretty rarely. Lately, I just shift them to make space rather than full on rearranging, but that is because I've outgrown my display area. Regardless, I don't change them around as often as I should.

    Whenever I get something large enough to justify it. Which means every couple of months. Haha

    About once a month. Everything gets dusted the shelves get a little bit of wood polish.

    Everytime I get bored of looking at it. Or if I am adding some new figures and/or taking some out to sell.

    Every few months or when I get tired of looking at some part of it. I have a few shelves that haven't changed much (Animated, Classic Seekers), but several others that I change frequently.

    I do a complete rehaul every two months I'd say. It's a great way to clean thoroughly and create more space.

    - Light overhaul - Roughly every two months. Generally when I get enough new figures that I need to open up a shelf or two for them. No major changes generally just putting a few figures away and shifting stuff around here and there until shelves open up.

    - Major overhaul - Roughly every six months. Coincides with my major semi-annual dusting routine and fixes up things that are a little cluttered after a couple of light overhauls.

    i have my collection displayed "class photo" style, taller guys in the back, shorties up front, so my re-arrangement occurs based on size of new additions, if i get someone big, all the shelf space in front of him has to shift accordingly. if i get a new scout or legend, they just get tossed up front. my movieverse shelf front row gets shifted about fairly regularly though. my cat tends to knock them over about once a week or so, so i have to set them back up

    Everytime I buy a new figure I re-arrange it slightly. Recently I re-arranged it completely, when I re-arranged my sleeping room and everything in it, so that they are not standing on one shelf, but Autobots and Decepticons each on their own shelf.
