    Thanks. Those shelves I have pictured are from WalMart and only cost me 24.99 each I have 2 at the moment although I wish they were both white.

    Here are a couple pics of my in box collection.

    and one more thing no collection should go without IMO, a thermometer. My room is kept at a constant 70-75 degrees. :)

    I've never seen such space between figures! Nicely presented, less is more.

    Thanks Sid, I'm sure they will get tighter sooner than later but I cant stand when a collection is so tight together that you cant tell one from another. Just looks cluttered, but if thats all the space someone has, than fill it up. Its better to be on a shelf than in storage.

    Very Nice looking presentation.

    I'm curious, how do you decide which items to keep boxed and which to display loose?

    Thanks everyone.

    Most of my collection was bought loose. If I bought it new I keep the boxes but with space getting tight I had to made the decision to get rid of the boxes or display them in box. I dont really care for keeping them in box but it sure does keep them nice.

    And Supersquad7, you are right. He lets no one in my room. He loves my awesome collection too. lol

    I see. I'm always just curious about how people choose to collect and display their items.

    Again, looks great!

    Thanks again. :) _ BTW all but 2 or 3 have been opened and put out on display. I just kept the boxes as nice as I could although some were not that great from the store.

    That's cool. So if you're at the store and see a figure that you like, but the box isn't great, do you get it anyway, or leave it and hope one with a better box comes along?

    LOVE the bed spread and I also have that big devastor but I kept the outside box and threw away the inside box even though I hated to do that cause I couldn't fit my MOTUC figures in the box lol. Most of these I see I do have but just recently was given a book case from a neighbor so I can now display some of my collection finally. Great pics my friend but some of these you have that I own I have opened cause to me I had to play with them myself. Do you have the transformers box that amazon is selling yet. I have it and I just really really love it.

    Thanks, I thought I was a little to old for the bed set at first(33) but I love it. I have the sheet set with it also. I hope we get to see some of your collection soon. Again all of these have been opened except Generation Scourge and ROTF mail away Ravage, all others I enjoyed for the past year or two but decided to put them back in their boxes. Also what is this transformers box you are speaking of? link please?
