Just in case you weren't joking.
If you've packed averything well it shouldn't be a problem.
No no, I was serious - thanks for the link. I'll check it out in a few minutes. I basically put figures into sandwich size zip-lock bags, then sealed those up and put them into gallon size zip-lock bags. There's lots of cushion just from that, but then I put all that into sturdy large boxes and added padding where necessary. If the boxes don't get completely crushed, I'm confident that they'll be fine. The statues are in their boxes (see photo) and I'm going to stuff those cabinets full of newspaper so they can't move around inside of them and I'll plastic-wrap the cabinets so they won't open. Then I'm going to put the glass cabinets onto the truck against the wall, and use the book cases to sandwich them in place so nothing can fall into the glass. I THINK they'll be safe, but I'm prepared to deal with any damage that happens...
Just wondering if I'm the last person to realize that you had used VHS tapes to form the risers for you collection. Amazing collection Rob! Are you planning on a similar set up in your new place?
We're going to be renting for at least one year (maybe as many as three). I'm taking all my shelving and will try to set everything back up, but the room is much smaller. It definitely won't fit on one wall, I'm not 100% sure that I'll have room to fit everything at all. It'll basically be a guest bedroom / toy room. The cabinets with the Gentle Giant probably will have to go in another room - not sure yet. As for the VHS tapes, I don't think it's a secret or anything... I have lots of other things in there too. Much of it is done with painted International Delight coffee cans stacked up, and then with little planks of wood running in between. Anything that's light weight, black, and made from something rigid enough to support figures is great stuff to use. It helps to have various sizes and shapes to be able to build different platforms for different items.
