    Still a ton of work to do on my toy corner, but I thought I would share some of my favorite shelves!

    Thanks everyone!

    Boo: I ordered the poster from eBay a few years ago. I'm pretty sure I've seen them there recently. There was a Megatron that was very similar...

    Not only did you do a great job organizing, but your collection also rocks!

    Thanks for the compliment!

    I have Star Wars stuff in the room as well, but it's mostly full of my beloved TF's!

    I got it at Hot Topic a couple of years ago. It was on sale for about $5.00!!! It's actually reversable with the Autobot logo on the other side and it came with a cd case that has the G1 TF logo on it. I'm not sure if they're still carrying it as I try to avoid HT, but it can't hurt to check it out!

    Thanks again for all the kind words everyone!!

    Hey Nightwind,

    You have a very nice large collection. I envy you!

    I was glad to see that you collect 3" & 6" Titaniums. "Tits" are not really popular among many TF collectors; however, I love them - especially the 3" ones.

    I suspect that you spend a lot of time re-organizing everything. It's probably a headache for you to transform and re-pack figures to store in your 3 rubbermaid containers.

    I also think that you are in a dire need of a much bigger room.

    I also noticed that you collect Star Wars stuff too.

    I like your neat idea of pinning MISB figures and 3" Tits on a cork board. It's very original.

    If you haven't already, you should get rid of the fuz ball table.

    I have the following questions as well:

    1. Is this your bedroom?
    2. Do you actually sleep in your bedroom?
    3. Do you have enough room to comfortably maneuver around without knocking off any figures?
    4. You seem to concentrate on Cybertron, Movie, Classics, correct?
    5. Why don't you open the 3" Titaniums?
    6. Are you going to complete your seeker collection by getting G1 Thundercracker, G1 Skywarp, & G1 Ramjet?
    7. What happened to Movie Blackout, Scorponok, and Ratchet?
    8. Did you lose any missiles?
    9. Why don't you put Rodimus Prime/Hot Rod together?
    10. Why did you decide to place Star Wars on your headboard instead of Transformers? I'm disappointed. :) 
    11. Are you going to expand your Optimus Prime shelf with the Walmart Optimus Prime 2-pack and the Target Movie 3-pack Optimus Prime?
    12. Do you have any Cybertron Scout Class figures? I don't seem to see any.
    13. Are you going to remove your Star Wars stuff and display strictly TF stuff?
    14. What does your family and friends think of your collection?

    Nice collection!

    RedOktobre,

    Thanks for the kind words! I have already sold the table because of the amount of room that it takes up! That, and I never really used it anyway...

    It's actually not a major issue to re-organize the room as long as I don't just put new stuff in random places after I buy it...

    To answer your questions:

    1., 2., & 3. This room is actually a spare bedroom in my three bedroom townhouse that's used for nothing but my toy collection. There is actually quite a bit of room in there now that the table's gone! :) 

    4. & 12. I actually have a lot of different series in there, you just can't see them all. I have toys from G1, Beast Wars, Beast Machines, RID, Armada, Energon, Cybertron (including scouts!), Classics, TFTM, Alternators, "Tits", and I've recently become fond of a few KO's that I've seen. I basically pick up what I like.

    5. I don't open my 3" Tits because I really like how they look in the packages. I do have a few opened ones on my desk at work.

    6. I'm not really interested in completing my seekers. I'm really only interested in the seekers with the "different" wing styles. I would like to find a Ramjet, however... Edit: Found Ramjet w/a new Thrust!

    7. I have purchased Blackout and Ratchet since these pictures were taken, but i don't really like the Scorpinok figure so I'm leaving him on the shelves at the stores! :) 

    8. I do have all of the accessories for my figures, but sometimes I'll put them in Ziploc bags instead of displaying them with the figures.

    9. I pretty much place my figures where I think they look good at the time. The order (with the exception of the Primes) usually gets changed every month or so.

    10. I've actually reduced the amount of Star Wars toys that I own recently. I was caught up in the hype of the "new" movies and the Transformers merchandise was kind of in a lul at that point...

    11. I did purchase the Prime two pack (a little disappointed) and the Titanium three pack recently! :) 

    13. I'm actually going to keep the Star Wars stuff that I have left. I love those movies almost as much as the Transformers! :) 

    14. My family thinks that it's awesome that I collect these toys! My girlfriend doesn't mind either. It was actually her suggestion that we get a three bedroom place just so that I could have a toy room!

    Thanks again for the interest! I'll be posting some updated pics in a couple of weeks!

    Later,
    Nightwind

    It was awesome that my girlfriend is so cool about the hobby! When we decided to move in together, the first thing she said was: "We'll need three bedrooms so you can use one for your toys..."! She uses the other room for her butterfly collection and as a spare bedroom for guests, so it all works out! :) 

    Thanks for the comment, TaterX, and best of luck on your house hunt!
