If you’re a regular reader, chances are you’re probably a toy collector of some sort. If you have a collection, chances are you display it.
(Heck, even basement dwellers blaming hobbies for social exile probably even display their collections, if nothing else but to wrap themselves in stained plastic bliss.)
So how do you do it? Do you have shelves? Display cases? Floor piles?
I don’t have any shelves yet, but I have a few places like my computer area where I have things crowded onto available flat surfaces.
I also really like the idea of wall displays.
Some of you may even remember my post about Gambit, where I’ve got his base set up as a wall display.
Usually I have my ROTF Wheelie looking pathetic in a corner on the floor, but recently I added him to my Gambit wall display.
He was just going to be hanging off there, looking pathetic and dangling. He’s pretty good at that, and has a pretty tight grip. However, thanks to Ejector, he’s posed in a bit more of a ‘yelp’ than a ‘dangle.’
Nom nom nom.
On a desk across from them I’ve got a set up with Classics and Movie figures. If that sounds like too much of a visual discrepancy, I also have Mata Nui standing over there.
Above that and near the ceiling, I’ve got ROTF Soundwave in satellite mode. If you fold down the flap used to cover his bot mode face, you can use a nail to hang him like a picture frame.
So does anybody else do anything interesting with wall displays?
