    Hey All,

    I was wondering on how I should post pics of my collections here? I like to get some advice here from some of the member before I start a tread for my collection. OK I've look at alot of collections here and I like alot of the look of the collections that members posted. But I like to see what members really want to see. So I like to get info so I made a little listed. Please pick on the info.

    First:

    Is do you like to see:

    1. Group of figures together or singles pics of one figure at a time like some collection ( which I kinda don't like lol ) anyway please pick one.

    2. Is it better for you to see alot of pics at a time or one pics a day ( also like this idea abit ) or a couples pics aday?

    3. is it OK to put non transformers pics in the collections ( like Gundam, macross, anime figures, etc... )?

    I think that should do it, but if anyone have any other ideas please input, if not all I need is about 10-15 members input on how I should post my collection as I like the members to enjoy looking at it. Please put #1. together or singles pics #2. alot or one ???. Please info thanks. I'll put up the collections pics on Sunday once I've the info. LMK :thumb

    im a newbie to these boards.. but when I didnt have a proper display case for them

    I use to take photo's of groups like the seekers all together, all dinobots, all the 84 cars etc

    when you see a big collection with a million transformers all standing behind each other it really doesnt give the same effect imho :D

    1. Group pics 2 --- Single pics 1

    2. alot of pics 1 --- one pics a day 0

    Personally, I like to see organized, well displayed collections from a wide angle that shows lots of bots and give a good feel of the collection. Collectors showcase threads with the following don't do much for me.....
    1. Pictures of boxes (MISB) just don't excite me. (Unless of course it's a true gem)
    2. Pictures of plastic tubs overfilled with loose bots.
    3. 100 close up shots of (common) individual bots.

    That's just me though... to each his own..

    i totally agree. i personally like themed pics. for example, a pic of all dinobots, or just elite guard figures. or a shit load of shockwaves hanging out together at a bbq drinking coronas. the pics of single bots every couple of days dont do it for me either.

    2. Your in luck, I don't put stuffs in tubs only on display hahaha

    3. me too I don't like taking alot of pics of a singles figures and posting it, what the deal with that :crazy: 

    OK so let just say, 2 for group pics, 0 for no single bot pics. Anyway please just give/pick from the 3 questions that is in post 1. Thanks

    I would do it the way you want. I did mine in groups of five or six. That way when ever i wanna go look at them, i can see what all i got. Plus I only have 2 little bookshelves of stuff on display and put the rest in storage bins and then rotate them, iin and out. BTW, it's almost time for me to get my movie figs back out.

    ^ I like how you have them displayed, maybe you could get some closer shots too. But yeah, that's a cool pic. I'm jealous.

    Just show us how you have them displayed. That's really the best way to show off a full collection. Everyone has seen the individual figures (that's what the Cool Stuff threads are great for) so what makes your Cybertron figures different from mine is how you have displayed.
