    ***Updated 9/5/2012 - Finally, basically done. Scroll down a ways, or read through to watch all 9 months of work progress.***

    It begins!

    ... with boxes.

    I'm going to need more shelves, this is just about all I have. Started getting a couple bins emptied though!

    [​IMG]
    IMAG0277

    And all but one of my versions of Energon Scorponok is out!

    [​IMG]
    IMAG0279



    Anyways, this is just a start. I'll update this thread as I get work done. And, yes, eventually, take better pictures too (not TFW Photo Staff quality by any means, but at least not a camera phone) and attach them properly instead of using a dumb flickr album.

    Also, don't expect quick updates - I have over 2000 Transformers to get out, get displayed, and get looking gooood.

    In the meantime, thanks for taking a look :)  Suggestions on a display theme extremely welcome! Trying to do something creative, but I'm also all for stealing your good ideas ;) 

    ***12/12/2011 UPDATE! WOOOO***

    Good news - many boxes are emptied and out of the way. Bad news - room looks horrible! Regardless, I think it'll be fun to chronicle how it all comes together.

    So, the MIB and MISB stuff is all in the closet. Sort of. There was some stuff in the way.

    [​IMG]

    With that out of the way, here's what the closet currently looks like:

    [​IMG]

    IMAG0290

    This stuff is in here temporarily while I sort out the loose stuff. Which, generally speaking, is a holy mess right now.

    (Yeah, that's Puzzler, a Megazord, and a pile of other Gobots in the center. :/ )

    Remaining boxes: all filled to the brim with loose stuff:

    The few shelves as they currently are:

    IMAG0283

    And the one sort of good looking shelf at the moment, with no apparent organizational theme yet :)

    Thanks for looking, probably won't be any updates for a week or two as I sort through these piles!

    And here we are, 4 months later.

    Those are the Macro level shots of how the room looks as you go around the nearly completed, though still messy, three walls.

    I still have a relative crap-ton of stuff to get out, but I thought it would be fun to share an update after so many months.

    At long last, (basically) done!

    First, the shots of the whole thing - pretty similar from the last update but definitely more done than before:

    The boxed stuff, I got a few of those too. Ended up buying 2 big sterilite containers to help nicely organize some of them.

    Thanks for the encouragement everyone! :) 

    May have some more low-fi pics up over the weekend, cleared out about 1/3 of the boxes over the past week!

    I got all the MIB/MISB stuff shoved into a closet... sort of. The closet is now full. Completely.

    But at least that stuff is out of the way for the time being.

    I'll put up a shot later this evening of what it currently looks like while I sort through the loose stuff. Though, honestly, the room looks like something out of hoarders at the moment >< Can't wait for Christmas to be over so I can pick up tons more shelves.

    Get something to cover those windows bro. Sunlight destroys plastic. Especially white plastic.

    Nice collection though!:)

    "Small" update today. Alternators shelf = done for now! (Advanced apologies as usual, these are camera phone shots. Really need to get my actual camera back.)

    Wide shot. Blurry. Bad lighting. Oh well.

    Nicely displayed collection of Alts! I had to scale back my display for Alts, but they're still the best looking of the bunch.

    Darn! I wish I had all this room to store figures, weights, and games. Call it and entertainment zone, but only in my dreams. Neat collection you got there.
