    October 2021 Update

    Have finally gotten my lighting set up and employed some more risers to make better use of the vertical space. The lighting was a lot of work but I'm really happy with the result.

    This cabinet is the best for the lighting because it traps in the light.

    While the white light is the best, it's fun to play around with the colours.

    June 2020 Update

    I've picked up another dozen Detolfs since my first post so I've been able to space the collection out a lot better. From here I will likely look at lighting options for the Detolfs and eventually I'll be plastering the ceiling to give the room a more finished appearance. But I'm very satisfied with it now. Fitting Unicron somewhere will be the next challenge but that's a good problem to have! [​IMG]

    I've temporarily removed my lounge to give an uninterrupted view of the display.

    Here's my MISB collection now mostly on display.

    And here's my opened figures.

    Finally, here are a few close-ups of some of my favourite figures.

    Sep18 Collection-6_zpsrgl1b4qq.JPG

    I started out collecting Masterpiece MISB only but now collect doubles so I can have them on display too!

    Here's my MISB Masterpiece collection. I need more Detolf cabinets so I can display others not shown like Shockwave, Grapple etc.

    Finally, I still love my G1's!

    I have a lot of MISB movie, Unite Warriors and Titans stuff but again need to invest in more cabinets!

    Can’t wait to see how this all turns out. Very nice space for a collection

    Very nice. I'm also a MISB collector.

    Great space, do you live in some kind of converted industrial space?

    Thanks, the space shown is the back half of my garage (not converted industrial space, just residential).

    Yes I've still got room to grow, I reckon I could get another dozen or so Detolf cabinets on that vacant back wall and then wrap them around the back of the lounge (if I can get it past my wife!). I also have to move in the red MP cabinet into that space, it's out of shot but is a bugger to move (need to buy a trolley).

    Forget the detolfs. The red case is nice.

    Oh I know, I bought the red cabinet about 4 years ago and should have gotten another couple. When I later tried to get more they were discontinued. Detolfs are great for the MISB MP collection but not as good for opened figures.

    I love the MISB display. That's a great idea. You did a great job maximizing the space inside a detolf.

    Many thanks. Yes I actually got acrylic risers custom made so I can fit two rows of boxed cars within each Detolf section. The large boxes fit nicely in a single level.

    Wow very awesome and impressive and just all out cool. I wished i had a house and to have a man cave. Apt living just doesn't allow a man cave living room. So when you share a apt 50/50 with your wife and she's got a ton of stuff too like fabric and other projects.

    dude great collection. With that amount of space, get PAX cabinets they're 5 times bigger than detolfs and you can adjust the shelves.

    Thanks, yes I'm very fortunate to have the space. That is one downside to apartment living, I did it for a couple years but was then able to buy a house. Got my wife into collecting Disney dolls but thankfully there is room for both.

    Cheers mate, I'll look into them.

    Thanks!

    Yep, learning from the master haha

    Incredible collection and displays. The NBA Jam game brings back some memories.
