    My collection isn't as massive as some of you guys, and my display isn't a comprehensive, but I've made an effort in my new place and a friend did a panoramic shot of the diplay for me with his camera phone.

    [​IMG]

    I actually have a lot more thats not on display (over 500 bots in total) but I've been quite specific on what I'm displaying.

    On the top is Optimus Prime, can you tell? On the right of the top is Metroplex and Constructicon Devastator, when I eventually get a Primus they might be rotated off the shelf.

    In the shelf is Character displays, line displays, Minicons, role play stuff, Alts, a Model Lamborgini next to a Roadbot Lamborgini. They stuff on the furthest right is my other halfs section. TF related are all her Jazz's.

    If anyone wants I can take straight on close ups of specific bits.

    I love that picture.
    Make a high resolution panoramic version... I think it would be fun.

    Nice job!

    The Green Lamborgini above the ALTs is a 1:18 Roadbot, believe it or not. The vehicle mode totally rocks, hence him up on the shelf. The Yellow Lambo is a 1:18 die-cast model by Maisto, opening doors, bonnet and engine covers, as well as suspension and steering. Right now Concept Boba Fett is driving.

    [​IMG]

    Heh. I'll take some close ups later.

    Righty, here are some close ups of the shelf, apologies for the angle (I'm short and the toys are high) and the lighting, I may take some better, long exposure non flash shots with my ikkle tripod.

    Rodimus/Hot Rod Shelf, along with all those Minicons. I actually have a few more Minicon teams, but the Dark Saber is packed with ML Rampage in box. The Optimus Prime row is now doubled up at the beginning, the Voyager Movie was Prime added recently!
    [​IMG]

    Classics and more Minicons, Titanium Ultra Magnus is hiding behind his Classics self.
    [​IMG]

    Movie Toys. Cybertron Landmine is filler because he's one of the best molds ever (IMO) when I get another Movie deluxe (Arcee hopefully) he'll move into the next shelf. More minicons, the last so far, as well as a FAB Barricade, and the Flash is blotting out Legends Megatron. Also, Energon/Cybertron Micromaster Combiners. I actually have a load more Micromasters in storage, but the 4 per team aspect would make display awkward (currently in Minicon Teams of 3) We'll see.
    [​IMG]

    Cybertron/Best Molds. This one has the better/recent molds from Cybertron, as I get more deluxe movie toys I'll have to remove these guys one by one. Also Real Gear/Role Play stuff sits in this shelf. The missing spot is the Movie Cell Phone/Dagger... I mess around with that one all the time. Behind them is all the Micromaster combiner parts, and a Lego Racing box, which has all the missiles for everyone up on display.
    [​IMG]

    Alternators/Roadbot/Maisto 1:18 model. I'm thinking about putting up my MIB Binaltech stuff, I'll have to see if there is space. But the Alts are up because they're less valuable. Also, end of the road for Prime, more big characters start here. Unicron is holding a Matrix I bought from Botcon Europe, many moons ago.
    [​IMG]

    Last shelf is my wifes, (haha, weird saying that), Gobots and Jazz are hers, as well as the Futurama stuff. She also likes her Russian dollies. Metroplex is in need of a clean up and reprolabling, but he'll eventually come down along with Constructicon Devastator, for Primus, Ultimate Bumblebee, and maybe Star Wars Transformers Death Star.

    I'm currently repacking everything, so when I get around to it I'll take pictures of all the MIB stuff I have as well. Lots Of Micron Legend, Reissues that kind of thing.

    Heehee zombie thread!

    I've been wanting to post an update to my display for a while, but only just got around to it. Can't believe its been almost 4 years... all the old pictures had gone so I've actually reupped all the old pictures so we can compare then with now...

    So without further ado (minus the glass doors), my current display!

    [​IMG]

    Because I'm anal (I like anal? WTF!) I'll list all the stuffs on there... I didn’t list everything 4 years ago. Sorry about the not that great pictures, its from my phone, because it has the panoramic picture thing built in.
