When we moved recently, and I spent the time packing and unpacking my stuff, I kind of got to feeling a little "overwhelmed" at times too. I don't have nearly the collections of many of the people here, and I have a very select few carded figures (which are packed away), so I'm sure I don't have the space issues that many others have. I guess I just don't like my collection to start to look "cluttered" or to look like I'm really jamming figures on the shelves either. Right now I don't have everything on display either, but would like to eventually. I have my modern, loose figures on some shelving that I put up in our office closet. I took the closet door off, and it works pretty well to display them in there. A few figures (old POTF2, and/or crappy Episode I or Saga figures) have gotten packed away, and I still don't have an area to display my vintage loose collection on (but I'm not done with that anyways, so it is ok). I have my Unleashed displayed on the top of my desk here, but would like to eventually get some "floating" shelves to put them on around the room. I also have another bookshelf that currently holds the B-Wing (that thing is tough to fit anywhere), Clone Wars Animated figs, Playskool Star Wars, the 25th Anniversary sets (and Trash Compactor Screen Scene), the two Target glass sets I have right now, and some prequel ships (Anakin/Zam speeder, Jedi Starfighter, Jango's Slave I). I also have my other, smaller collections on these shelves too (LOTR, Marvel Stuff).
I've started to consider being a little more selective with my collecting, just so I don't get too overwhelmed in here, or to figure out some more shelving. There is some great Star Wars stuff coming up (VOTC collection, Galactic Heroes, new Falcon, and a "few" new OTC figures), a few more LOTR and Marvel Legends figures I'd like to get, as well as a growing Spider-Man collection that I'm really getting into. Plus, now I'm starting to get interested in the SW Kubricks as well, so that won't help any (but at least they are smaller). Anyways, I know sometimes I wonder if I have "too much stuff", and I think sometimes I look over a few things here and there and wonder if I really needed
them or not. Sometimes it was some completist-ism coming over me, other times it was just that I hadn't seen anything new for a long time in stores, and settled. I have considered at time collecting only OT items, to keep it more limited, but when a new movie comes around, I just end up buying more than I should anyways. Plus, I do like to at least have some of the key characters from the prequels. Anyways, I do know what you are saying, I sometimes feel like I have "too much stuff" as well. As long as you are happy with your collection, and can figure out some way to enjoy it (displaying it, changing it out every few weeks/months, or buying a bigger house
