FWIW, this is a pic of one of my spaces from over a year ago:

I can't even get an angle like that to photo anymore and I have another equivalent space filled to the brim and a garage that is completely filled floor to ceiling minus a spot for one car. 

I use large durable plastic containers. They take up more space, but you can stack them mile high with no issues, they dont attract pests, and if I ever need to move their basically already packed (would just need to add cushioning material - which is how I move my clothes.😄)

I have a bunch of those too and use them as the base layer of my stacks so any less durable boxes are on top and more protected. The problem is if I bought enough of those boxes, it would take up even more room and cost me a ton of Valks worth of money.

You all need to update your homeowner's insurance to cover the replacement costs of all your treasures!  Rebuilding those collections after a tragic loss would be painful to say the least.  :cray:

I have a separate "collectibles" insurance policy.

Weren’t a bunch of GI Joe classified figures on sale for like 7 bucks each during this past weekend?

I saw mention of this on the latest Tyridium Hangar video.

What a perfect time to army build for those who collect these.

i would like to mod a GBP chest armor to fit the 1D DX.

Ah! That I want to see. :good: 

Btw, did you bought an extra for customizing? And are you also planning on replacing the chest number to '7' as well?

A big thank you to MW Member @rick.vale, this is my first complete Valkyrie Factory VF-1S set, while I have not transformed it yet my first impressions so far is this is NOT some Evolution Toys quality plastic, nothing locks together disappointment. 

This is essentially an Arcadia PF set that includes the option parts & bonus clear armor covers. The Tampo is really nice and from what I can see & feel, it's a sturdy Valk... not a floppy mess.

A few years ago I bought a Fast Pack armor set from @Shizuka the Cat and I was very impressed with those, so I'm happy to say this VF-1S is a win too! B))

For the premium finish with SSP, the Roy version is going for about $200 on bababobo00712 toy store
and in that neighborhood on eBay as well. Hikaru is going for more.

I was impressed with what I'd gotten. Too bad it was the wrong character. 😅

I wouldn't pay 200 when I got the Arcadia versions for only slightly more than that back in the day. :unknw:

Thanks to @Skull One for these Zentradi ship models.  I didn't even know they existed!

And I'm new to figure collecting, so this may be common knowledge, but these Popup Parades are really nice for just $40.  Especially considering that most figures I want/see are INSANELY expensive.  Consequently, I've taken to collecting figures I find for a good price that look cool over ones I'm familiar with.  In fact, I actively avoid buying familiar figures because that's a slippery slope that leads to having to buy expensive ones to complete the set.  Even so, not a fan of Nekopara, but... I had to have all the cute cat girls.  At this price, it's not killing my wallet.

I usually avoid my wife's favorite collecting enabler, Hallmark, but the one time I did go in, they had an ornament of my favorite Doctor, Tom Baker.
