What to do with MISB stuff???

I'm sure it's been asked 100 times already but how do you display your MISB stuff. I have a large collection room that could easily fit 3000+ loose figures but all of my room seems to be taken up by boxes. How to you showcase these things sparingly?

Sell it and buy twice the amount of loose items.

I like the way it looks now. I like the concept that when someone goes into that room of your house It would feel like they are walking into a comic/toy shop. It's different.

Yeah thanks I look at it now and your right about the store feel. I want to try to incorporate my G1 stuff though into that room. I might move two glass cabinets to the center of the room and see how that looks but that doesn't solve my box problem though lol

I've had the thought many times that it would be cool to have a display like stores have. By that I mean the deluxes would hang 5, 6, 7 deep on multiple, long pegs and the Voyager+ figures on shelves.

That way, you'd save a lot of space on the Deluxes, and maybe rotate them here and there so a different one was in the front.


EDIT: But hey, the way you have yours is damn cool already! Like leo said - I like that comic store feel.

I Open mine since they are the newer, but I keep the cards and boxes for when the day comes to downsize the collection. second tip rotate your collection out every 6 months or so. Helps me with my space and interest.
