    Finally found the mental fortitude to dust off and re-arrange the collection and integrate the new bots into their home - here's what it looks like (separated into 2 "zones").

    It's been fun stalking this board and seeing how awesome everyone else's collections look like ... And so, here goes nothing :

    ===

    DISPLAY SHELF AREA

    This is the display shelf area where some custom pieces are displayed alongside the bots. Most of the recently acquired Siege figures will end up being displayed here (for now ....) :

    Been meaning to get more of the stackable display shelves done so more bots can be showcased vertically. Soon .........

    Some enclosed biotank displays for dustfree showcasing...

    Shelf03.jpg

    Teletraan-1 and some custom accessories ...

    Shelf04.jpg

    Space bridge shuttle and space bridge - both of which I did not have the foresight to realize would be near to impossible to display properly anywhere expect for on the floor!

    DISPLAY CASE AREA

    The other display area is partially on a case and with the other half in a display case. A smattering of other random toys share this space too.

    Some of my favorite big bots live here - making it easier to grab them to mess around with from time to time. Does not help the dust situation though:

    In the display case lives the more semi-permanently displayed bots as its quite a pain to push the case forward to get to them. Much angst happens to when the bots fall over forwards and need to be re-righted:

    This lights up too! But with the lights on, it's awful for photography. :p 

    Showcase04.jpg

    Middle shelf here holds a lot of the Titans Returns figures, such a cool nostalgic callback that they just needed be added to the collection.

    Thanks for viewing! :)

    Nice collection and setup. Random question, any reason behind the G1 blot? Seems to be the only G1 bot (though I may have missed others), and seems like about the oddest choice of bots.

    Thanks and nice spot! Basically have a couple of other G1 bots but they are in deep storage. Only dug Blot out because I wanted to compare him with PotP blot in the Abominus set. :)

    Since the big dude landed, had to rejig the collection space a little so here's what it looks like now :p 

    01.JPG

    Movie guys and some recent Kingdom additions live here on the front (for now)

    02.JPG


    The left side is somewhat random where new bots coming in thru the space bridge will hang out here for a bit first ~

    03.JPG

    Behind the big guy are the earlier WFC Siege and Earthrise bots. Not as optimal as they are less visible but will figure that out later ...


    04.JPG


    Next up - going to have to repack this other shelf where most of the combiners live...... soon ...

    Things getting a tad messy so a bit of re-organization was in order. Tried to put stuff in some semblance of their series/lines :p 

    Here's the WFC area for a start...


    01.jpg

    Ignore the blank backboard - that's meant to be a placeholder till a good background can be found for the top shelf... heh

    The larger bots live at the top.

    02.jpg

    Cons occupy the second shelf, and more Autobots on the lowest tier...

    03.jpg


    And the front empty space fits the devourer of worlds right here..

    04.jpg


    Another shelf houses the beast wars folks and some other misc bots which are not really quite categorized nicely yet (or just overflowed from elsewhere).

    05.jpg


    A closer look at the beast corner.

    06.jpg

    This other one is mainly for the TG / Legends collection.

    07.jpg

    Smaller collections like the "original" War for Cybertron guys sit on a side shelf

    08.jpg

    As well as these five PotP mold bros...

    09.jpg


    There's a bunch more misc stuff lying around so really gotta find the time/concept of how to get them displayed nicely ... doh!
