    After seeing other people's very well-organized collection, I was starting to hesitate to showcase mine. I collect other figures beside Transformers, so please excuse the mess. My collection is a bit all over the place right now. However, it is a working progress. That said, I will be purchasing some Detolfs really soon and will be reorganizing stuff.

    UPDATE 11/28: So, I've done some rearranging, bought a few detolfs but I have a space for 3 more. It's still a working progress, so things will continue to move around until I'm "done" or at least happy with my setup.

    So one side of the room will be for the figures that will remain in the box. The other side is for stuff out of the box.

    For now I'm using the corrugated cardboards from the detolf boxes as display base =). Eventually I will be making my own custom diorama bases. I just need to gather my materials first and come up with a design for now.

    Not sure why you can't see it. Nevertheless, I will be editing it soon and posting new pics. The original pics will be deleted. I just bought 4 detolfs today and got 3 assembled so far before heading to work. 1 more on the way. I'll post the pics once the room is cleaned up, there's boxes and packing materials all over the place atm.

    Are you able to see the pics after the edit? Do you have adblocker or are blocking cookies maybe; or perhaps try on a different browser?

    Nothing showing up in a picture other then little boxes with IMG right after the box that are smushed together. You might want to try again in posting your collection pictures.

    Yeah. I don't know why that is. But other people can see my other posts with pics on it like this one - Favorite Transformer of the day.....................

    Maybe there's a limit to how many pictures I can post? I'll have to read up on it. But these are jpg pics so I'm hoping it's not the case.

    Posting some more here. If it still doesn't come up then I'm not sure what else to do ...

    I think using shortcut keys (ctrl-c, then ctrl-v from cloud storage) to post multiple pictures may have been causing it. It worked on my posts w/ a single picture, but not multiple ones. I got lazy and took the short way instead of actually uploading. I'll post a couple more if you don't mind thumbing up if you see them. I'll use the upload button this time.

    20191203_130911.jpg Working on a diorama stand for my combined Shuraking. Lot's to carve still before I can apply a primer over. This is messy and it's going to take a while, not to mention I have 7 detolfs to work on. It's dreadful to think about, but I hope the finish product will be somewhat be satisfying with my lack of training in this field. I will update here with every progress I make with it. For now, I just have what seems like either a strawberry or purple yam cake :)

    Finally got some lights in there. I'm buying a couple more sets. Here's the link for the light if anyone is interested - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01F74316S/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    The connector for this specific light fits through the pre-drilled hole on the top cover of the IKEA detolf. It will save some people the hassle of having to drill holes from the bottom of the shelf. The pre-drilled hole is meant for securing the detolf to a wall, but I'm using it to run the lights to. I don't see any reason for them to tip over anyway. I'm currently running two lights each on some of the detolfs. Adding two more may eventually make it challenging, but we'll see.

    Finally got one diorama base done for my Shuraking to bring him up at least 4 inches higher. It's half-fast done, but I have gotten impatient 'coz there's a lot more to do and I've only barely scratch the surface with this project, so this will have to do for now.

    Will leave it to cure for a day or two.

    The base cured faster than expected so here's the new look in my showcase. I'm happy!

    2 more sets of diorama base done. It should dry up by tonight. Still on a trial and error run with the carving and coloring, but I'm getting the hang of it. I can't wait to see how it looks in the detolf, under the light.

    The bottom one has some odd lines. I used the wrong side of the XPS foam. Oh well, LOL! 20191212_130303.jpg

    Here's how it looks so far. Nothing fancy; just enough to elevate other figures and kind of make them stand out a little better.
