    Spent a little time rearranging this tonight. I actually rehung all those shelves last weekend and my girlfriend bought me that awesome chair as a birthday gift. But tonight I moved the desks around and made my photo space a lot bigger. Now my next step is to procure some better desk lamps and find some better backdrops.

    I think I might do a slight reorganization on my collection shelves this week too. Nothing major though. I still can't believe I haven't used my new camera to take pictures of my collection. I should probably do that.

    Congratulations!!! I'm actually working on my collection photos for BSF 4 Dummies as well! I was featured on Tydurum Hanger 7000 Sub Special some time ago, but much as changed since then. Really looking forward to updating my Collection Thread as well.

    I finally got around to taking pictures of my display after making some minor tweaks. I'm too tired to post them in any sort of order so here's a pic dump of my room.

    I'm still looking for some good LED strips to light the shelves/ Still gotta get some risers too.

    I feel like I make a post like this every three months but here's an update on the future of my collection:

    As you may have seen elsewhere on the boards, I'm going back to college starting next week. Because of this, I had to lose out on almost $8 an hour when I quit my full time job and now I'll be going down to only about 30 hours or less of work. It goes without saying that money will be ridiculously tight now. Hell, this is only possible because of my extremely frugal girlfriend who still has a good paying job. So I have to pass on pretty much all upcoming releases for the next two years. There's a chance that maybe I can pick up a deluxe here and there, but that's about it. Even if I am given enough money for new figures (from say my birthday or Christmas) I will feel guilty if that money doesn't go towards my savings or used to lighten the financial burden my girlfriend is putting herself through for this.

    So, there probably won't be any updates to this thread for a while. And if there are, it will be for reorganizations. But, I have the utmost confidence that I will get my degree in two years and I will get a good paying job. And once I've made sure my girlfriend is paid back for sending me to school and I've got a good financial foothold again, I plan to come back with a vengeance. I just have to hope that everything I want for my collection can still be obtained for a somewhat reasonable price. I know it's going to be hard but I think it will be worth it in the end.

    I don't have any pictures yet but I spent most of yesterday and a little of this morning cleaning off my shelves and slightly reorganizing things. I think what little changes I did make are much better than what I had and I'll try to get pictures up as soon as possible.

    Finally got some pictures taken and updated the first post.

    This is my S1 Autobot shelf, and below that is some books and other nonsense. PotP Elita is there because I made the decision to display the fembots separately and Netflix Elita is my definitive Elita.

    Season 2:
    20210908-20210908_105514.jpg
    More books and a shelf dedicated to the SunSwipe mold, as well as my S3+4 shelf:
    20210908-20210908_105842.jpg
    Various Avengers Funkos:

    Movie Shelf:
    20210908-20210908_105943.jpg
    My collection of Witcher novels plus winged Primes and Hot Shot, and my "Lost Light" shelf:
    20210908-20210908_110000.jpg
    Star Wars novels plus Yoda/Grogu stuff and finally my leftover Autobots that might as well be my own version of Wreckers:
    20210908-20210908_110017.jpg
    Now we're on to my S3+4 Decepticon shelf:
    20210908-20210908_110045.jpg
    These are the Decepticons I have left that are mainly JG1 characters:
    20210908-20210908_110053.jpg
    My ukulele and my Vader stuff:
    20210908-20210908_110108.jpg
    More Cons that didn't have a home elsewhere:
    20210908-20210908_110118.jpg
    S1 Earth Decepticons:
    20210908-20210908_110132.jpg
    Collection of Tolkien novels:
    20210908-20210908_110232.jpg
    S1 Cybertron Decepticons:
    20210908-20210908_110245.jpg
    Bad guy Marvel Funkos plus Starscream:
    20210908-20210908_110254.jpg
    And lastly my S2 Decpeticons plus the IF DJD and my PS4 games:
    20210908-20210908_110307.jpg
    And here's how it all looks:
    20210908-20210908_110600.jpg
    I say this every time but I'm still looking out for lighting options. I definitely want to go with high quality LED strips or possible pucks but I don't want to go cheap like I did last time and given my current budget it's going to take a while.
