    one of the biggest problems us collectors have is running out of room for our incoming figures in our current display. Some choose to have glass display cabinets, or plain book shelfs. I recently came across this problem of running out of room and my display looked boring. So I asked myself what can I do?
    Bookshelf's are easy and cheap, and glass displays can be expensive wile worth it. There is also wall self's that are cheaper then bookshelf's, but can't hold very much, and are plain. so the question is how to best update my display so that it looks cool and doesn't cost to much?
    After some research I discovered that what was best for me was wire wardrobe shelf's. That can be purchased in many lengths and depths. I also looked into lighting neon signs and such. I stumbled across 3D Deco night lights from Hasbro. They come in a few shapes and aren't to expensive.
    So after all my research I managed to go from this IMG_20160203_141751_435-918x1632.jpg
    To this IMG_20170203_001304971-2004x2672.jpg
    Exact cost is unknown, but it cost under 200 dallors. I think I did a good job.

    I gotta be honest: it's not my cup of tea. That said, you did a really good job putting it all together and I love what the Autobot and Deception nightlights do for it.
