About 85% moved into the new house. The amount of toys I have is ridiculous. I think it’s time to check myself. I’ll try and post some pics of my “collection” taking up a lot of space in the basement. Ugh.  I never want to move again. 

If I move again......it will be my last. I can't imagine having to move all my toys. It would take an eternity to get them all transformed/put back in their boxes!!!!!:bad:

Hopefully you have more room in the new house and can display all that stuff!

I bubble wrapped everything I had on display and just threw them in boxes.  No rhyme or reason. Trying to work fast and putting them all back in boxes would have taken FOREVER. Who knows if I’ll ever see them again haha. Still a large majority were still boxed.  Definitely have a large front room, believe it or not, that the fiancé is giving me for a “museum” room. Gonna go for a more elegant display this time instead of just a bunch of detolfs.

I don't think my OCD would let me just bubble wrap them.:p

Nice! Sounds like you have something to work with there. Looking forward to the results!

I sure do wish that I had more space. I really want to do a theater/toy room. I'd need a bigger house. Well, technically no, I don't need a bigger house. I need at least the same size house but with enough property to build a out building for the business stuff. Right now it's taking up 1500sq ft of my lower level (ranch with a walk out) and 1000sq ft in garage space (the garage is pretty big). If I had that 1500sq ft to play with that would make one heck of a theater/toy room!:good:

Ugh. Think I finally moved the toys. No idea what’s what.  2nd pic doesn’t do the amount of crap justice  41563736-4641-423A-9CC9-8A4C14700EAD.jpeg.f3c96279741835ccfd9a678d8a01b209.jpeg

Wow! Seeing that we also moved recently, I can definitely say my collection is probably just 1/4 of yours. And my wife thought I have a lot. :rolleyes:

Nice try there @sh9000

No space for escape should something happen and if you clutter your stuff til the seams split, then it’s a Fire Hazard and you risk your own life to pooch with your collectables. 
 

I bet you guys don’t even think about having fire suppression equipment if a fire/explosion happens - “I might as well die with my toys”.

Good for you, Noel.  Imminently practical. :good:

I'm afraid ErikElvis has only about 1/4 of the collection I have... 😬

 

...if that. :huh:

Hahaha! :lol: I'm just glad that @ErikElvis did use Lowe's XL boxes to compare with the 20x20x20 boxes that I used to pack mine. And I have 12 total. ;)

Though I still got an annoyed look from my wife after I showed this to her. :cray: 

Speaking of your collection though @tekering. Just out of curiosity, do you keep all the boxes or just selected ones? Most of my 1/12 figures, I already threw away the boxes. The big toys that I can probably sell down the line, those I keep. I'm pretty sure that if I just only threw away all the boxes, my collection will probably end up in just 3-4 big boxes.

Here were some of my collection displays in my HMR detolf in which I took several out for SDC.  I may or may not put them back the same way.  I might just redo the shelves and display iconic poses.  I could probably put a lot of them on the same shelf.

I could probably fit all of these on 1 or 2 shelves.

Then there's this one that I would love to permanently display.  I'd have to glue the pieces to the stand arm claws just in case there's a small aftershock.

And then lastly I would also love to have this one permanently displayed.  I'd have to tighten the stand arm for the Max 1J and glue the attachment pieces to make sure nothing falls off or falls down during an aftershock.  I know there will eventually be a larger earthquake in my state.

It needs to be filled up to the point where you can’t get past the door.

I can already see this eventuality.  It'll become impossible to find (or even access) many of the boxes, I'm sure... :unsure:

I would never dare show my wife.  The attic remains safely inaccessible to her. 😅

Wow! Just wow! You just didn't took this photos 2 hours ago, right? :shok:

I only hope that humidity doesn't get too much on your boxes. Unless, your attic is temperature controlled? ;)

I should have stated that Tekering is a Canuckle Head ex-pat living and teaching students overseas in Japan. 

Has anyone else seen Tek’s videos posted on YouTube? That should gave a clue in where he is located and that his collection that was posted on TFsource (plus various pics that was posted on here).

Ah space... early on in the collecting journey, display space was the big headache. Need more cases, then need more rooms. Boxes were a minor problem; they were just shoved into whatever available space in closet or corner. 

Then later it became obvious, the boxes were the biggest problem. Because even if run out of display space long ago, the boxes still need to be dealt with as the toys keep arriving. Came to a point where we probably need a 1:1 ratio of display real estate to boxes storage space..
