My Transformers Room- over 1000 TFs displayed [Pic Heavy]

Updated: July 30, 2014 - The official collection count is 1415 figures with 1100+ figures displayed between 7 display cases.

Newest Additions:

Warbotron Sly Strike
Warbotron Heavy Noisy
TFC Aethon
TFC Gumball


After buying a new HD camcorder, I decided to put it to good use and filmed my collection. Enjoy:
YouTube Video: My TFs Room

I recently added another three display cases to turn my TFs room into my TFs museum, so I thought I would take a few pictures to showcase the room I made for myself.

Just curious, what do display cases like that run for? If you don't feel like posting for everyone, would you mind just messaging me. I have admired those cases for a while now and wondering if I can afford something like that.
I get this question a lot, so I don't mind answering it on here at all.

The older, wider cases are unfortunately not available anymore as the company went out of business a few years ago (I would have loved to have everything matching). Those cases were around $800 apiece shipped.

The three newer cases came from KC Store Fixtures for $730 apiece before shipping. The company is local for me so I just picked them up in a truck and didn't pay shipping, which I'm sure will be quite a lot.

I have spent a lot on the cases, but I think they make the collection significantly more impressive. Certainly much more so than if I just bought some bookcases, or put shelves on the wall (although both can look very nice).

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Three new cases:







Two old cases:




Beast Era and SWTFs (until I can find something better to put there):











Unicron Trilogy:











Classics/Henkei/Universe/Generations/Reveal the Shield and Animated:













Old Case #1: Pics coming tomorrow

G1 and G2



Old Case #2:

Movie [2007]:





RotF:





DotM:



Human Alliance:



Prime:



Robots in Disguise:







Family Mart Optimus Prime and NERF Blasters:

Not quite done, but I have most of them up off the floor. I know I will be moving some stuff around, but I like the organization of the lines as they are. I will probably just move the odd figure here and there.

Lone case = Masterpiece, Binaltech and Alternators










As you can see, I do still have quite a few in the storage containers that I need to find a place for.

June 13, 2012

I bought these from a local display store, so I saved quite a bit on shipping, but still... expensive...





Now the fun part, unboxing and manhandling them into position.

Teaser Pic: Hmmm... I wonder what is supposed to go in that empty space where the other cases used to be...?







Main Display Cases:




Another angle:




Brave Max case and G1 and Beast Era case:




Unicron Trilogy, Classics and Movies case:




I also have a smaller case that I bought years ago that I "customized" for Brave Maximus and Unicron and Primus:






My Unicron and Primus display which does have a spotlight I installed in the ceiling to illuminate them:




Close-up of Brave Max:






My newest addition is a case I had to drive 8 hrs each way to obtain. I went up to IKEA in Minneapolis on New Years Day and bought this case. I was able to move my MPs/BTs/Alts from the main display cases and gave them their own, dedicated case and I rather like the way it turned out.

Doors closed:




Doors opened:




I also purchased a Family Mart ROTF Leader Optimus Prime and added a light-up base and acrylic case for it:




Another angle:




My Pride and Joy- Buster Prime w/ additional chrome gas tanks/rifle:











To finish out my TFs room, I decorated the room with some framed TFs comics that I have collected over the years. I never read them and I much prefer the way they look decorating the walls.

G1 Comics:




Dreamwave comics:




Dreamwave comics from a later run along with my Movie Prime Bust, Movie BB Bust, Matrix Bust and Model Kit Prime:





Movie Prime Bust: close-up




Movie Bumblebee Bust: close-up

The IKEA case is the NORDEN case and it is only available in store.

Norden Glass Door Cabinet

I also added 6 of their spotlights, 3 each in the top and the bottom wooden shelves.

as I said in my own thread...displaying is everything. I am actually thinking of doing the same with the swedish comics. all 7 of the first year but I think I can get them into one bigger frame.

I really like collections like this that are organized and great looking.
Oz - one of the greatest shows made. To all those actors that made that show possible. Thx

Brilliantly displayed, but it doesn't look like that much? Probably the neatness of it all
