Started re-working the room this week.  The Gentle Giant wall is all set - now I took all the legos and 12" down and expanded the shelving on that wall.  I'm moving the loose figures to this wall - should be about  25% more room for those.  Legos and 12" will go onto the other wall.

Updated the pictures back in the first post - the room is all done for now.

Swapped the big walls, expanded the Gentle Giant section... Burger King and Unleashed are in the closet.  Should have a little bit of room to expand loose-figure wise.  Running out of room for carded on the walls very quickly.

Wow.  That is one heck of a collection Rob.  Very nice!  Do you keep one of everything carded and get 1+ of everything loose?

Thanks. :)

That's the current strategy.  I'm seriously debating getting out of the carded game - at 27, I'm starting to feel like I could better spend some of my money in a place other than buying duplicates.

That is simply amazing...  So much so that my computer locked up when it was loading all your pictures.  That is just unreal...  I'm in awe.

Yep - pretty much what I expected.  Half nice, half all hung up on the idea that I have a real live girlfriend.

Whatev.

Great article on your collection. The comments were pretty funny. Too bad there are always people that feel the need to tear someone down just to make their empty lives feel better.

That's the first time I've seen your collection Rob. It's most impressive! I really like it. I wonder what my collection would look like if I got everything out and put it up in the same style you have. I'm really impressed with the lego sets you have. I've always wanted to collect lego but there isn't enough room to keep them together and on display.

Have you ever considered getting some custom made cabinets and maybe decorating the room to some star wars planet or star destroyer simular to Wise's room? That will make it look less like a storage room and would really show off the figures. That's something I'm planning for my star wars room during an extensive house remodel. One thing I'm planning is to build a fiber optic star scape ceiling to hang my ships from. I like how you added the rocks for asteroids. It's a great touch.

Is this room filled to capacity now?

Yeah, I'm not too worried about it.  She's a hell of a catch and everything is great.

Thanks!  The larger legos definitely eat up a lot of space - especially the Falcons.  I have the Star Destroyer boxed up because there's no where to put it and it's too wide for the shelves I use.

I've never thought about doing anything custom for this home because a few years from now I'm expecting us to have moved into something bigger.  The asteroids actually came from a Hasbro Star Wars commercial shoot I was on a few years ago for the OTC Falcon and TIE Fighter.  Afterwards my friend and I asked if we could have them, and they gave us a trash bag full.

Is this room filled to capacity now?

Pretty much.  I'm out of wall space and am looking to sell all my carded figures to get some space back, and because I decided that I was all done buying 2 of everything.

Congrats Rob. A great read and loved seeing those images again.  8)

Thanks sir!

Do you have pictures of your collection anywhere?  I hear rumors that it puts mine out to pasture.   :)
