I’m Back Baybaaaaayy
I would like to share some photos of my current collection. Just a few disclaimers:
My collection was previously housed in a well-lit upstairs room. My collection is currently residing in a basement that is unfinished and suffers from poor lighting. I am showing the two photos below to show you how I WANT my collection to look.
This Thundercats diorama I made for my cousin has features I would like to incorporate into my own displays: LED lights, photo backgrounds, 3D logos, and action figures that aren’t knocked over.
And here is my collection as it was many moons ago. Fairly organized, well-lit, in a finished room.
And here is part of my collection as it currently stands. Unfinished basement. Poor lighting. Plenty of figures that need stands. Shelves that need backs. Ugly concrete floors. Stuff still in boxes. Lots of work needed. But I have to start somewhere, right?
To the right of these shelves, I’ve got a couple of entertainment centers. Not painted/stained yet. Old-school CRT on one. Modern flat-screen on the other.
So that’s where I’m at right now. More space for toys than my previous room. But much more work needed to make it look presentable.
Collection Photos, November 2016
Not as organized as I would like it to be, but I had a sunny afternoon so I decided to take some updated photos. Please excuse the figures/vehicles not set up properly. I’m in need of action figure stands and some risers.

Battle of the Stands, Volume II
As a follow-up to Battle of the Stands, Volume I, let’s take a look at Star Stands:
Star Stands come in five varieties: a circular vintage stand, a circular modern stand, a rectangular modern stand, a vintage stand with the Kenner logo, and a vintage stand with a Star Wars character-specific nameplate.

Here’s a couple of pics from May 2014:
Battle of the Stands
Dozens of action figures. Seven distinct action figure stands. One stage. This is Battle of the Stands!
