i am starting to part ways with my collection as some of you already know.i figured the only way to sell it off is sorting it out so its easier to find and came up with this.in the end i am only keeping less than 10% of the collection and this room will be reconverted into a giant diodrama.
i still have 3 large rubbermaid containers full of loose vehicles and my walk in closet is full of my mosc and remaining transformers.all i can say is this is a major undertaking.i got lots of cleaning,pics and checking for blueprints,completness and if i got the boxes.i still got about 75 misb/mosc listings to put up.
still need a few more shelves to finish,i was thinking of a small round table to put my terrordrome on.i figure on keeping the flagg,terrordrome and defiant along with a few jets and 25th style figures.

i see your wife allows you to display your toys right next to the utilities? I dont...huh... approveofthisatall. ok, let me present a scenario. your half drunk semi drug self induced neighbor stumbles into the kitchen to make spaghettiOOs at roughly 9 am after a wild swingers party you through the night before. he leaves a spoon in the in the microwave because lets face it hes in no condition to be making food in the first place.
after almost setting your kitchen on fire he blows the breaker knocking out the power to your house. however no one is aware of the tragedy that is about to in-sue because,
who gets up at 9 am after a night like this really?
so he stumbles downstairs in a somewhat comatose existence i like to call "the morning after" or "dawn of the dead" if you please. he stumbles right into the center piece of your collection flay-ling about like a fish out of water with total disregard for anything it might encounter while gasping for breath...it is a sad day my friend. not only do you have to worry about some completely inappropriate pictures your boss and co workers might have seen of some individual that "looks like you" circulating the internet from the night before...now you have to deal with this crisis as well.
so head my warning, if you do intend to temporarily "display" your joes in this room i highly suggest temporarily re routing your breaker box to another. im free on Wednesday to help.
FYI kick a** collection by the way

yeah,only other option is the garage and its full,or i can move the bedroom to the utilities room.but that would suck.
oh,and i'm not married and dont got to worry about displaying stuff,i can do what i want whenever i want.as for parties,i take george thourogoods advice,i drink alone.............
this is what came out of that room.

i quit army building a long time ago,all the figures are in clamshells in the file cabinate.i got that file cabinate for 30 bucks since it was damaged on back corner.:D
thanks for the compliments,it took a long time to amass my collection.many people have been sniped over the years.

Wow.Excuse me I have to pick my jaw up off the floor too bad you're selling a lot of it.

Awesome! I did the same thing! I got rid of a bunch of stuff and converted my toy room into a diorama complete with Springfield, war zones, white house, etc. Its still a work in progress but...anyway goodluck to your new plan cant wait for pics!
