Really really nice Mark, the space is much cleaner now , looks great!

Is that a loft conversion or just a room with a roof light?

Very nice, impressed I am!

Cheers for the kind comments guys! Very Happy

Joe,its a loft conversion mate with 2 skylights,one on each side.I was lucky as it was already like this when i bought my house.I've had to cover up one of the skylights with cardboard to stop sunlight from getting in & bleaching the boxed stuff until i buy some blinds! Laughing

Very nice collection!!! ... I really enjoyed watching the pictures of all the play sets and vehicles , and specially the ESB AT-AT !!! ( That is my favorite of all of them!!!)

6 WAMPAS??? .... Love the way they look together specially the ESB boxes!!

I also liked the Endor scene!

Did you make the Display for your figures, because they fit perfectly well!!

I hope that collection of yours gets bigger all the time!!

Hi,

Nice collection! Even though my focus has shifted away from MISB to loose and some carded, I still love these. Very nice, thanks for sharing.

That's a superb collection Cool I really love to see collections displayed in loft spaces as you get some interesting angles and dimensions to work with - I hope one day to get a loft space to display my growing collection thinking - also the boxed vehicles & playsets display very nicely & I agree with JimmyMT it's like looking into a toy shop when you're a kid.
very Cool thanks for sharing!

The bi-logo Falcon is pretty nice, and the Wampas are great

I love the picture with all the stacked boxes! Very impressive and the picture itself looks simply cool.

Mark - how long are you collecting?

I just saw your collection i see you needed more shelf space for all those boxed toy's.

Your before pic look's like my boxed toy's all stacked on top of each other like a pyramid.

Great collection bro the shelving look's great.

I might be needing shelving here too real soon.

My boxed pyramid is getting wobly like Jenga.That's all i need timberrrrr.
lol! lol! lol! lol! lol! lol! lol! lol! lol!

Uli,since i've stopped going out drinking i spent the money on building up my collection(i need to get out more!).

I don't have much more to buy now apart from an imperial shuttle,potf skiff,cloud city & hoth ice planet playsets,some mini rigs & a few loose figures ie vcj & r2 pop up saber.After that i'm pretty much done! Very Happy

Dan,funny you should mention about your stack of boxed stuff being wobbly.When i started to take down my stack after taking the photo,my y wing box gave way(as there are no cardboard inserts)& a few things fell down!

All my shelves are billy bookcases from ikea if you're looking for something similar,they're quite cheap & really easy to assemble! Very Happy

Mark.

Awesome before and after shots. You're collection is amazing, and in such a short time. Very well done! :clap:

I really like the way you've got the figures displayed in the playsets....just the way the Kenner gods intended!

The whole display room looks great, I'm very jealous. Laughing

I forgot that one mate,sorry! Laughing

AJ,the jabba diorama is quite flimsy so i cut out some cardboard & glued the diorama to it to make it more sturdy!

Cheers for the kind comments guys! Cool
