    While B*tch may not be a problem, I have problem with my shelves for Hercules. The Ikea black cases with backgrounds I have is not tall enough for him. argh.

    I may have to take it all down and print out a new set and adjust all the shelves!!!

    Is Hercules devastating any of your shelf setups in the same way?

    First world problems.

    Buy more shelves instead of readjusting :)

    Yeah, not really a problem, just a catchy name for the thread. Ran out of room for more shelves.

    I'm actually in the same boat. I have 4 Detolf's jam packed, and the wifey doesn't really want me getting any more :(

    Buying a new detolf tomorrow. This more of a general toy forum question, not related to 3rd party.

    Yeah, I guess, you never know where this stuff goes. I went here, because Hercules is the troublemaker.

    Yeah, problem is, if I put that third detolf together, it blocks a window. Argh, need to finish that basement off.

    I know it's not practical, but I really wish the detolf was one segment taller.

    Yeah, that bottom shelf gets no love. Maybe make it into a stand and put the shelves on that. I've limited my collection to one detolf though, so I'm able to keep it simple.

    im going to put a light in the bottom shelf where that hole is and see how that looks. but yeah, nothing really goes on the bottom, which makes the others pretty cramped. the new one tomorrow is to separate the autobots and decepticons.

    btw, i just watched that episode of parks and recreation!

    I found these. They were the cheapest option I could find and they do wonders for the display. I like that you can also go bold and pick colors to match the factions. The modular use fo the tops and bottoms works awesome.

    About the only thing that looks good in that bottom shelf is something huge like Fort Max... That's what I do with my ikea cabinet.

    I have a bookshelf from Target for all my Classics, and every single shelf is getting really crowded now. The pre-movie Decepticons are fine without Herc, but I'd look at putting him and the display base in. If I did, I'd have to take out every but the seekers' riser.

    So Herc is sitting on my photo table for the time being.

    I somehow knew it was Alucard who made this thread when I read the title :D 

    My problem with my displays is that I have quite a few things that don't belong with anything else. Like for example the real gear line. It's a great line, but doesn't fit in my classics or G1 display. So I have a bunch of toys just hanging around on top of closets and such. Autobot classics shelf is way too overcrowded.


    Need more walls.

    I've got a similar issue. The shelf I have my Season 3 characters on isn't tall enough for Cyb. Metroplex, which I've been meaning to repaint in a G1 deco (for a long while now :X ).

    And so if it's not tall enough for Metroplex, it's not tall enough for Unicron.

    I did manage to work Metroplex into a pose that lets him fit though, so that'll have to work. Haven't figured out Unicron yet.
