With everyone posting their collections earlier this week, I decided to post how mine currently looks.  I am likely building the Porsche with within a few weeks so will have to move things around.

So heres my collection so far. May take a few posts due to image size.  

This is one side of our collection.

What display case is that? 

It's a brand called Pulaski. Love it because it's a single door that slides open - in either direction (so single pane of glass with unobstructed view of contents). P.S. We bought it second-hand to reduce costs.

Taken about ten years to get this far.

Didn't know that i have such a good collector around my neck of the wood. You must have been collecting a long time. That is quite a good collection, but you not into modulars? or that is just another side that was not photographed yet.

I get goosebumps from seeing all of these pics. Seeing my stuff full of dust kills me. If I will ever have the room and time to do displays I am sure I will get some cabinets that are sealed airtight.

While my display cabinets aren't "sealed air tight", they do at least have doors and are somewhat closed off to the environment. I live on a large, fully wooded lot. As it stands now, I have to dust the display cabinets once a week, I shudder to think of that layer of dust settling down on the LEGO bricks themselves.

I thought there was already a thread for this?

 

 

There is another very similar thread. It's probably two-thirds storage room/area pics of boxes meant for resale, and one-third pics of sets on display like the ones above. They're both useful and impressive to look at in their own ways.

No have never bought a modular to display. This collection started when my little boy was 4 and he only had eyes for Starwars spaceships and things. As he got better and better at putting them together I started to get him technic sets for a bit of a challenge. To this day I have still never built a set. He has always been my chief builder, I just help.

Now he's almost 15 he's lost interest a bit but I'll keep collecting and probably just store them in their box unbuilt.

He"ll be back one day. :)

Wow! You miss only three UCS? Impressive!

 

We just sold our 10179. It's a great model but was such a pain to display, plus I only owned it for not even 2 years and it doubled in value. Ploughed most of that 5 grand back into more sets (new).

I think a new version is coming. I got burned bad by the snow speeder remake. Not doing that again.
