Great collection Scott! I hope to get my collection all out and displayed someday. For now most of it sits in boxes and misc areas...

I like those mirrored display cases. I just found one of those in my father-in-law's basement. It was from his old hobby shop. Now I just need to convince him to let me have it. It needs some repair and cleaning but it will be worth the work once it's up and displayed...

Continuing the updates to packing/moving/unpacking/reorganizing here's where I'm at



The lights are from Ikea, they are fairly new.  One great thing is they put out no heat at all so I never have to worry about burning down the house.  One downfall is that they aren't really that bright and they are spendy as hell.  I like them though and it makes for a nice effect

Sharp eyes may see some new little overweight blobs of grease on the shelves :-*

I may have to use those same lights for my loose figures.  I've tried setting up rope lighting and even small Xmas lights, but they just don't work (or don't stay in place).

Those IKEA lights works so well at giving your figures the punch to really stand out.  I like it.

Looks nice with the lights.  I have to re-do mine since my recessed lighting heats up & after reading about yours, will have to check into these cool burning ones.

You need some insulation by that ducting :-*

And notches shouldn't be cut in joists like that, it lessens the structural integrity.  I'm assuming there was plumbing lines running there at one point, but they should have drilled a hole in the middle of the joists and not have notched it.    :P

There is insulation there, you just can't see it.  I thought the same thing about the joists ;)

Scott, what do you do about yellowing prevention on your displayed Vintage figures?

Nice collection BTW.

Alrighty...this will be the last update of ye olde computer area...


Finally got done in the playroom (the door to the back of the room there), finished painting the downstairs and got a new Ikea bookcase




Here's the boyos play area...




We got about a half inch of water in the entire basement on Father's Day weekend this summer.  Everything in their room was wrecked so it had to be replaced...turned out nice. 

Here's the our family room in the basement area...



I really should get a tripod or something to photograph my bookcases in my workshop...that is where all the 3-3/4" stuff not in the wall units is located.

Where'd all your stuff go? :(

I know you've got more of it and you indicate some is in the workshop, but man, did you unload just about everything?  Where're the Simspons figures? 

Oh, and I might have a fugly little Cap figure that you won't have, if you want it.
