You said it Jimmy, the wider new display is better but if you are going to run out of room again you are just going to have to get more display cabinets. Especially if you are going to complete your loose collection.

The wider display looks nicer Jimmy, but it's a bit too crowded for my tastes.

If it were me, I would separate the boxed/MOC from the loose. Then put the loose in the standing cabinet on some risers or something. I think if you displayed them this way, you would have more room to grow and give the MOC/Boxed more room to "breath" at the same time.

If that makes sense.

Personally, I like the wider case better. In one like that, everything doesn't look clumped together and displays nicer than a small upstanding case. Plus the wider cases give you more room to display in a variety of different ways.

i like the wider better aswell for the same reason , except that the height in the compartments of the standing case is higher and that kinda does it for me , i think it has a nicer overvieuw that's why iam going to go with the standing ones , but iam not

trowing away the wide one

iam thing of trying to build one large wall cabinet put together out of those kabinets and those ikea kube things like i already have done , but then larger

Yeah, i agree. The wider one suits the bikes better. Spacing them out a bit also helps too imo.
I'm picking up another Ikea cabinet in the new year too. I knew 3 was never gonna do it.

that's the thing , when is it gonna be enough , so that's why i was thinking maybe one of them

complete wall things , then i would even maybe put a flatscreen in the middle have a kinda mini game chill out collection room

like now but then more stylisch " a mini livingroom/collection , not with the intention of using it as a living room

i'll search the site over for some idea's and post them then you might help me decide

Wow Jimmy, that's an amazing collection of biker scouts.
Are there really this much speeder bike variations, or did you want to go for a armada. Smile

It's nice to see that your problem is not much different then mine (and a lot of other collectors I guess). Not enough space for all the stuff you got.

btw, do you only collect the action figure size stuff, because I don't see any of the larger items (12 inch Speeder Bike, Sideshow statue) or are those in boxes in the attic.

cheers,
Hans
