My basement flooded! Quite a few of my Transformers, GI Joe, Star Wars, and MOTUC figures are a total loss. My new filming set-up for making my videos was also ruined. Some of the MISC stuff is now mush and I have to open them up. Most of the stuff I am planning to sell made it through bone dry. For those of you who house your collections in your basement, do you have a certain way of displaying them that could prevent this from happening? I kept mine in bookcases and everything on the bottom shelf is what took a bath. I was thinking of buying wall-mounted shelves that screw right into the studs and ditch the bookcases since their bottoms are all ruined. Is this a good idea? Any better ideas? I don't have the room in the main part of the house. I keep some in my room, but not many. If you have pictures to better illustrate your set-up, I would most appreciate it. The cause of the flooding was a sprinkler line burst, filled the window well with water, and made its way inside. Just to fix the place up will set me back about $1,100 which does not include replacing the stuff I had lost. Also, do the plastic tubs really help protecting stuff inside from situations like this? At least no DOTM or ROTF figures were damaged.
