    I live in a weird L shaped basement apt, so i can't really put out my full collections. Mainly i have out a bunch of my painted model kits. All my comics, and miscellaneous figures are stored up in the attic.

    Most of my transformers are in those blue bins. It's a sad state that they're all packed in there all loose. :cry

    So here's pictures as promised, I'm almost done the room, just got the TV wall mount yesterday, I got a 50" 1080p plasma tv going on that empty cement wall there in front of the couch, and black suede curtains on each side, as you can see on the other side of the door, just to cover the cement wall. It makes it look much nicer XD

    And some of the lighting I got going so far, you can see the main light in the first pictures, but I have lattice on the ceiling with christmas lights all layered in behind between the joists to make a nice moody effect. I also have the LED underglow behind the desk and under the futon so far (I have two more bars to put up somewhere, but I may just leave the two) the lights are cool, they are LED's and can change any color, and have a ton of patterns and flash different patterns and all that, its quiet neat. I'll make a video for you guys.

    Nice but a 50" is a bit much don't ya think? It's way too close to the couch to be viewed comfortably. How far is the distance between your couch and the wall the TV is going on?

    These are the only ones I've got on my laptop right now. They're probably 6 months old before I got my all my TF shelves up. It's still a work in progress, but I'll take new pictures when I get home.

    The TV I have is awesome, you can put your face right up to it, and it still looks amazing, its like being in a friggin movie theater! I'll have it set up so it ends up being 5 feet away from your face.

    Here we go, here are shots from my wife's iPhone from about 5 minutes ago:

    Here's the back wall with the fireplace and some of the TFs. Got about half of the shelves up that I want to now. Just buy them whenever the paychecks allow it, lol.

    Wow. So jealous of you guys. My wife and I live in a small (but comfy) 1 bedroom apartment. No room for any kind of mancave or anything like it. Hell, its not like I'd have much to put in one anyways, since other than a couple shortboxes worth of comics, I don't have much of a collection anymore.
