    If done right, I like the look of a crowded shelf. The trick is to make sure every figure can be seen. Risers are a must. Knowing the point where the shelf gets too crowded is a "you know it when you see it" moment and, of course, depends on the shelf dimensions. I can fit 20-30 figures (mostly Deluxes and Voyagers, but some bigger and smaller figs for balance) on a 30-inch wide shelf. I've got nearly 50 G1 Diaclone carbots and Minibots on a single shelf, using risers, and everybody can be seen.

    I'm just amazed all those figures don't fall out being upside down like that. Must be because they're packed in so tight. LOL

    so tight if you want to pull out one toy for hang on like a barrel of monkeys.

    i have to many transformers now, so instead of down sizing and buying new toys im just going to every day stop, the last month ive only put a small amount into transformers and i dont regreat it, seige is going to be my cheapest year with me giving up on collecting MP toys, only Mp terrasaur can get me to buy another and thats because his current toy is just to small

    They are indeed. I would recommend them to anyone. A word of caution though they will use up alot of batteries if you are not conservative in their use. But they are worth it.

    My shelves used to be as crowded as the malls the day after Thanksgiving. But I had to sell some stuff over the years and they are not looking as full but I have plenty of new stuff that has yet to be on the shelves so hopefully they will get full again soon. When they were filled to capacity, I would put Leaders in back, then Voyagers, deluxes, and Legends and smaller in the front.

    I have storage shelves and display shelves. The storage shelves are just literature organizers. The type of thing you'd use as a mailbox for a big office of people or to sort different types of paper at a print shop. The shelves are all adjustable and I keep everybody in there in alt mode packed pretty close together. It's quite efficient, especially for the cars who all turn into, essentially, rectangles of about the same size as one another.

    On the other side of the room are the display shelves, which have whatever I happen to think looks cool that day. That way I can give everyone the elbow and posing room they need.
