How to display - suggestions please

For all the lines not covered in our themed forums. Think Thundercats, Ghostbusters, Voltron, Wrestling, Doctor Who, Power Rangers, Video Game Licenses, TV & Film Licenses... do I need to go on or did you have it figured out before I even started?

If its been "displayed" in a box or plastic bin for over a year you probably should think about selling it! Unless of course you have your things packed away due to space issues or impending move or something.

Truer words were never spoken.

I wish I could put my toy cellar up on eBay as a mystery lot. :lol:

Between April to June of this year, I cleaned out my garage toys and pulled in $6000 that I'm using as part of the deposit towards my new house this Friday.

It takes some effort, but it was definitely worth it to me.

And once we get settled in the new house, I'll probably purge some more to help pay for new furniture.

Holy snails! Thats a nice take! I'm slowly trying to purge right now.

I went to a church bazaar last Saturday and they had a rummage sale with a ton of random crap. I found a brand new still shrink wrapped "Alphabet" cake pan which is a regular looking pan but has grid grooves on the bottom and comes with 2 x 2 inch blocks to arrange into letters and numbers. I'm not usually one for baking but I thought the blocks would be great to use in a display. The whole thing cost me less than a buck. I haven't had time to put them to use yet, but they look nice.

Its always good to think outside the box when it comes to how you display your figures!

Agreed.

I always want to clean out the cellar. I just found a box today that indicated I was apparently into buying Original Trilogy Collection figures in 2004. A whole little stack, still in-box. No idea why I even have those.

Ironically, I found out because I was hunting for an R9-G4 which I thought I had, but didn't find.

My one advantage - I had to move.

So it came down to either packing that stuff or selling it. Regardless, it had to go. This stuff had been sitting for years and was one of those "I've got to do that one day" things. Once it became a "Crap, I have to do it now!" it will really kick you in the butt.

My "problem" is th at I've never had to move. So when the day comes that I do, I'm going to have a LOT of stuff to either pack or get rid of, so I guess thats yet another reason to try and keep on top of things.

Sorry guys, not been around in a while. Oddly enough, being at home instead of out at work seems to mean I have less time to browse. Weird.

I've opted for alphabetical, with a little leeway - CnCs will be on the back row to avoid blocking other figures. The LoSH will be in the display grouped under "L" and I've decided to bring in the GL figures instead of keeping them in a separate display. Does mean I will have blocks of colour, but I'll see how it pans out.

Nothing on shelf yet - we've swapped over the bedroom and "study" so I now have more space - and a crapload of boxes of stuff that needs sorting through and mostly binning. Sadly, this has meant I haven't had the time to get the display sorted out yet, but hopefully this week.

Photos will probably happen.

So are we looking at a chimney? Rock wall?

Nice "diorama" for sure.
