    So my collection has gotten to the point that it's so cramped that I can't even play with anything without causing a domino effect and taking out a whole shelf. My wife suggested building custom shelving in the TF room to try to spread things out. I want to see pics from those of you who have built custom shelving to try to get some ideas. I'm sure you won't mind showing off some. ;)

    risers are great as well, i have fairly big space between my shelving so i have them on stairs in some places, the risers are all custom made from foamcore, makes it easier to pick one up to mess with without causing said domino effect, and makes them look more spread out when they looked crowded before:

    That looks considerably more spread out than my setup now. I've got some risers in the back but it's still not enough. I may consider building some of my own that are better suited than the VHS tapes and clear acrylic ones I'm using now.

    While ido think your after pics look better, I think you'd have the same domino effect if you tried to get say, Nemesis Prime, out to play with him. :(

    Hey seali,

    What's that glass cabinet? How much that run you? Is it custom or ikea? Looks like a modified detolf.

    Very nice and clean/uncluttered, and digging the thought put into your respective Bot/Con base backgrounds too!

    Thanks, I appreciate the compliment.

    I just got so tired of looking at a plain shelf, I needed to do something. Saw the printable backdrops and went with them.

    As for clutter, I try to keep it to a minimum. It becomes hard though. The risers help that a bit, but it still feels a little cluttered to me sometimes.
