Thank you for sharing @mldj77. Now I don't feel so bad that my Lego city just took over the guest room. The tables went right over the bed and we rarely have guests. So, now Lego has taken over three rooms in the house. The library, which became the Lego room, is now dedicated to Middle Earth and other fantasy realms. Mr. Klatu is a gem! Since we bought him a fancy new car, he has gone from benign observance of my Lego purchases to downright encouragement.
You'll tell them you stayed at a department store? That would be impressive :)
Another Expedit fan here. We just finished converting the room above our garage into a LEGO/craft room. My wife's craft area is behind the photographer in these pics. Of course, the only reason this room looks so clean is because our 5 year old has been with Grandma for 3 days...
For loose bricks, we use ziplock food storage containers. The 76 ounce size fits the Expedit shelves perfectly and can be found quite cheap. They will stack 4 high and 2 deep in a cube. We lit the top row with some inexpensive LED strips and plugged them into a switched outlet. The bottom row of baskets contain our son's toys (until they're all dumped out on the floor).
Aside from the shelving, we've got a MOC table for me, town layout for our son to play with and he usually claims the NILO coffee table as well.
189 drawers! I have 10 lol.
Just saw thishttp://www.cnet.com/news/this-guy-has-the-most-insane-lego-collection-in-his-basement/#ftag=YHF65cbda0First thing that came to mind...I have more pieces than he does, and I'm sure many people on here have WAY more pieces than he does.
I have no idea how many pieces I have. My collection manager says I have 270,000 and almost 3,000 minifigures, but I have not inventoried my 6 tubs, so who knows?
I'm not going to invest in a display area until I know what Lego I have for sure.
I would really like to know where you buy those modular storage units with hundreds and hundreds of small compartments... I must have looked in a dozen different places and haven't found anything like that except prohibitively expensive smaller-scale units.
prevere said:Collection manager?
I was lucky to find one with 10 drawers for 20 bucks at the mall. others I've seen were like 3 drawers for the same price.
otherwise, those very small containers used to contain stuff like screws or nails may work for little pieces.
@Farmer_John - $79.99? That's nuts!
I don't collect dragons at the moment, bought them a long time ago. figured they would go well next to fright knights ^^
a tribal dragon?

I love how "your collection isn't nearly as large as most you see on here" and yet fills up whole walls :D
there is a nice variety also.
just noticed a massive spider. I hope it's shelob and not a real one
