    Hey all,

    This is how the lion's share of my personal collection is displayed:

    [​IMG]

    Above, you can partially see three cabinets filled with production rarities and exotica. The central cabinet houses prize/campaign/lucky draw etc, items (top shelf) and everything Japanese, from both the Pre-Transformers (second and third shelves) and Transformers lines alike (fourth fifth and sixth shelves). Below are more detailed pics of the central display case:

    [​IMG]

    As you look to the left of the central production shelf, you'll see non-Japanese Transformers. Minibots from around the world, watches, and some favourites.
    Here's what sits atop the cabinet:

    [​IMG]

    In the display case to the right of the central cabinet, you'll see non-Japanese pre-Transformers.

    Kronoform, Joustra, Ceji, GiG and Takara's Finnish Black Corvette Stingray.
    Here is the top of this display case:

    [​IMG]

    Let's look to pre-production.

    [​IMG]

    Acting as a sort-of half way house, this cabinet contains many of my more recent prototypes. Beast Wars onward can be found here. On top of this display case is a Scramble City store display and my current collection of vintage Gold Lightan. Adorning the windowsill are some framed 8x10 glossy black and white photographs from various press kits.

    Onto the prototype wall.

    [​IMG]

    Everything in this cabinet is of pre-production stage, and spans all years of the various Pre-Transformer, G1 and G2 lines. From mock-up to packaging sample and everything in-between. Various large proof cards, store displays, and posters are visible to the lower left. No reissues here.

    Space is an issue for all if not most collectors. Here's how I deal with mine:

    [​IMG]

    There's a bit of everything here. G1, G2, various pieces of artwork, paperwork, prototypes, reissues, newer items, a few non-TF items such as cards and a whole lot more. Hopefully one day I'll be able to display the artwork and paperwork with more visual appeal, but for now this space-saving solution is ideal.

    Well there you have it, my collection room. I won't be posting close-ups for now, as I'd like to save a little material for a site I'm working on, but I hope you've enjoyed my post nonetheless.

    Thanks!

    Ras

    UNBELIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEVABLE COLLECTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Or should I say museum!

    Quite frankly the best all-round Transformers-related collection I have ever seen in my life, what an achievement and what a display. Every single shelf has something on it that no other collector in the world would even have a CLUE where to begin looking for. Andf the best part is, many folks wouldn't even know it!

    All the best
    Maz

    There never was and never will be another collection like this. No question you have worked hard to find all these rarities. My personal favorite is the watch q shelf hands down. Plus the glass cabinets w/ lighting are top notch. Can we conjecture to say that this is one of the rarest if not the rarest collection of TF figures and memorabilia anywhere?

    The middle one in the first pic is actually a portable one from here in the UK, no doubt the 'States will have something similar if not the same.
