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.
Here’s my current Masters of the Universe collection. I’ve had all of these for around 30 years. I recently inserted a couple of shelves to make the display more organized.
This is my second Castle Grayskull. I know I had two of them because I still have two thrones. I’m quite sure I used to have the original He-Man figure. He was probably broken at some point and thrown away. Most of my Masters of the Universe accessories are currently in a separate box; I’m impressed I have as many as I do, considering the age of these figures.
I have no idea what (if any) toy line that caterpillar creature is from, but it’s always been with my He-Man figures, so there it stays. I need a vest for Prince Adam and a chest piece for Sy-klone.
I’m expecting my Club Grayskull figures to arrive any day now, maybe even tomorrow, so these figures will be welcoming He-Man and Trap Jaw.
