    @Margot, there was no insulting. Mild pushing, some advice thrown out, maybe some judgement, but insulting?

    Yes, it was insulting and it was not civilized discussion. Calling someone a hoarder and saying they are not a collector and lack discernment is absolutely insulting.

    Maybe you should ask the person who it was intended for how it made them feel?

    I'm still waiting for the photos of the Pampers collection. Surely you're not just teasing us @Mathew.

    ^^ You could be right, and that's @Markey‌'s business I guess. Then again, perhaps the internet needs fewer White Knights than it currently has.

    I think I will head over to the Lego store and check out the collection they have on the shelves.

    ^^^ Oh what a terrible conundrum. buying a bigger TV results in less Lego space. buying more Lego results in a smaller TV, argh.

    @Bandit I always love seeing pictures of displays like that, on the negative side though, then I always want to start collecting Star Wars UCS sets, until I head over to bricklink, take one look at the prices and all hope is lost.

    If there is one set I want most its #10030! :o)

    ^Yeah, thanks a lot @Bandit. Now I'm wanting to go buy the R2-D2 and the new X-Wing.

    It does look impressive, probably my favourite UCS model.

    I cant wait to build the one I have stashed in the shed :) (Just waiting until I build my man cave).

    I have the Star Destroyer, but it is flimsy and it slipped out of my hands and smashed on the ground. I haven't rebuilt it. I'm dreading it since it was a boring repetitive build. To do it again would be awful.

    With that said, once built, it is quite "Impressive. Most impressive."

    Luckily I started collecting from the beginning, so I never had to pay crazy prices for anything. :)

    It's really not that great of a set. It is also very unstable. Mine started to bow after just a few months on display. I dissembled and sold it shortly after acquiring mine. Also no interesting build techniques and it's repetitive. Oh and it's building everything twice.

    Since you dropped it and its probably missing a few parts, say around S100?

    Ok, I'll get this thread back on track. Here is a pic of my home theater and one of one side of my office. Since I have limited display space overall (given the amount that I have to display), I rotate sets around every so often.

    I forgot how ugly that sandcrawler is. My kids loved playing with it. But I don't remember it being that bland. Nice setup. Not to much, unlike most of us.

    LOL, I didn't show you the rest. ;) The countless plastic tubs and boxes of sets being stored because I have no room to display them all (though still accessible for the kids to play with), and the hundreds of MISB sets I haven't yet built, again because I have no room for them right now (I am a SW completionist, and dabble in the rest). Luckily I'm able to store everything away pretty nicely for now. I'll take some pics of my boxes if you want. ;)

    That's what I am saying. You have not over done it. Looks nice.

    I tend to see a difference between a collection of personally-chosen sets that are proudly displayed (in box or not) or carefully stored, and a pile of boxes arranged in cold storage that represents little more than a translation of $ -> boxes. If indeed that's what floats your boat, more power to you.

    Yep. Hoarding clearance sets is not what I define as being a collector. Owning 20 copies of a set that nobody else wants is not collecting. When I think of a collector, I think of someone who is at least somewhat discerning. I primarily buy Lego to build and display. When I stumble upon a good deal then I will contemplate how much I really need it, if my kids would enjoy it or if it has any monetary value for reselling. Otherwise it doesn't go into my shopping cart.
    That's the good thing about lego. Open it up and it doesn't need to be a set any more. They are just parts. Often if you have 20+ of a set then even if there is just one of a specific part, then owning 20 sets means you have enough to make use of that part in a MOC. I can't really think of any set I wouldn't buy if it was cheap enough. Even the CMF fitness instructor has nice hair and a radio.

    I think it's great to see collections in all forms. How people collect is up to them and if they want to show their boxes piled high then let them! I personally enjoy looking at the pics, if you don't just scroll past and look at the ones you do :) Please keep the pics coming! Feeling inspired and itching to buy some more lego now haha

    ^^I would look at the pics if there were any. This seems to have degenerated into a discussion... on a forum.... .... Oh. That's normal isn't it! :P
  • Bluefairy_56Bluefairy_56 Member Posts: 320
    I'm the same, I love looking at the pictures, regardless of how many boxes there are, it's still a collection.

    DAMN!!! should have asked before I went to Ikea, was looking for them there :-(

    Picked up Detolf though that they finally had in stock after 3 months, store employee told me some guy was buying them 30 at a time.

    Do you have LDD for them...;-)

  • Canuck26Canuck26 Member Posts: 55
    @Legoboy - You do very nice work. Those shelves look very well made and functional. So what about Harry Potter? Is that a MOC you did? I don't think I have ever seen it before.

    I don't have much on display yet, I'm working on a new 'LEGO room', so most of my collection is disassembled :o)

    Sorry for the bad pics, I really need to get a good camera!

    ^^ Its a lot of fun to build!

    It will no doubt loose value if you do though...

    Reseller: Just as I was about to break the seals, I felt a great disturbance in the force, as if thousands of bricks cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.

    @vwong19,
    This is what we need more of in this thread. Nice collection! It is nice to see all the modulars close together. No PR?
  • BumblepantsBumblepants Sofia BG/Dallas TXMember Posts: 5,551

    I will open it for the same reason I would open a sealed 1st edition UCS Falcon given the chance; I think it will be awesome to build.

    Also, no idea if I used that semicolon correctly but hopefully someone will chime in to let me know :)

    @Pitfall69 If my two year old can do it, so can you. You do have to keep your hands to your sides at times. There are a few spots in the back that require a slight bend in the knees.

    Yeah, my LEGO room consists of a lot of piles, boxes and bins of parts, and still does not encompass my train collection and boxes 80's city set collection that are all stored away in bins. Same with my loose LEGO city sets that are not boxed. Plus I have a closet filled as well, and still does not show all of my sets that I have bought that have not been removed from boxes yet.

    I reckon you did. The clauses either side of it work as full sentences, and they relate closely enough to be worth linking with the semi colon.
    Thought I'd chime in with something positive! Sweet! :D

    (Loving seeing more collections too, and the chat being about them and not much else.)
