    ^I had to stop collecting Star Wars Action Figures. It was too much. The only thing I collect now are the Cantina Aliens and Patrons. I haven't seen any new ones being released, so I haven't bought one for a long time.

    Yeah, I got tired of seeing the same figures over and over. Clone Wars figures were good and there was a little more variety collecting the clones, Rex, Fox. and the ARC troopers since they had personality and varied costumes. I was hoping we got more Lego clones but I think the Customs will be the way to go for me.

    @jediami65 & oldtodd33 - Yes my #10182 Cafe Corner is a semi-MOC, as is the #10185 Green Grocer. I bricklinked some of the more iconic elements and filled in with what I had. I got into this addiction after they had retired. @FollwsClosely Thanks! I actually like the black and gold awnings better than the original. Wyldstyle is on another shelf with the western TLM set.

    Here is what the big layout looked like with the older part of town on the main table and the outlining newer construction and the trains on extra tables. Also that the back of GG is lime green!

    This is part of my collection. A custom built base unit and some shelving units underneath. I'd like another one to put the Maersk train and the Emerald Night together.

    Since I can't edit my post above...

    They are all in my closet, and to get the full picture, consider the first picture below as "ground level - center", and the following pictures (seen left to right, top to bottom) represent looking left, then up and left, then up and center, and finally up and to the right (on the right below is the actually bar where some clothes hang). Sorry about the orientations on pictures 2, 3, and 5. My phone set it that way upon upload.

    My custom display cabinet made from Tassie Oak.
    Contains approx 500 min figs, but room for over 1500!

    Do you build your sets or just collect them?

    @jadestaples Where did you get that display cabinet?
  • jadestaplesjadestaples Member Posts: 5
    edited May 2014
    It is cubic units from bunnings stacked together. 2 times 4x4 and 2 times 1x4. It works well unless the set is huge.

    Oh, I definitely build them. Several of the ones you see on the ground level have not been built, however, since I am usually not home enough to do so. But the majority of the boxes you see contain sets that have been built and displayed at least once. I just don't have any shelves in my room for them now.
  • jadestaplesjadestaples Member Posts: 5
    I know what you mean @Lego_Lord_Mayorca‌ I am studying and I try not to build anything unless it is uni holidays. Doesn't always work that way though. I love seeing everyone else's collections, I feel less odd now.

    @Peter1975
    Wow! Dat ziet er schitterend uit. (Wow! That looks splendid.)
    I love the way you display all your sets. Every Lego theme, its own diorama. Love all your castle, H.Potter, and pirate stuff!

    You're worse than the kids, leaving it all out on the floor. Learn to tidy away.

    Nice collection. :-)

    ^^Thanks, Now I wish I had more space to display it. But with 3 kids it's all boxed on the attic, waiting..... And there is an awful lot more Lego's over here...

    @Peter1975 do you have any additional photos or more close ups of your Pirates display?

    @Peter1975 really like your castle pics, I see a lot of my childhood favorites mixed in there.

  • Peter1975Peter1975 DeventerMember Posts: 166
    @piratemania7‌ : No, sorry. I haven't got the display at all anymore. All the sets are back in the bocks.
    But in time I hope for a new big place to display my Lego. Trust me, a lot of picture will get upload then.....
    In 'my collection' you'll see what will get displayed then.

    Our "collection," including MOCs in progress, is displayed on a long wall across our dining room area and into the family room. We started with only one cabinet and 3 Harry Potter kits. (lower right photo).

    Things got very big very fast after that - had to expand. Our whole collection is now on the wall, with very little in storage in the cabinets below. We don't have a Lego "room" exactly, but this idea could be adapted to a boy's or girl's room to save space by going up the wall.

    FYI one large Lego kit is about 1 cubic foot, so our approx. 15 sets are about 15 cu.ft. if anyone wants to compute. I say "approximate" because some kits are small, and others have been absorbed into our MOC pieces. (Yes we also buy kits just for parts, but only the smaller ones.) We have 25,000-30,000 Lego pieces on the wall. (I can't believe I counted them all one day. MOCs not counted in the total.)

    This is our new web site that shows details. http://www.elderplay.weebly.com/
    Please visit and maybe find some new ideas.

    @Sanddoodle "Elderplay" yes! Perhaps we can go by "SFOL" since "TFOL" is common usage for teens. One of my favorite childhood presents was Tinkertoys. I remember building the Fly Away fairground model, it was so impressive that it worked.

    Ah, but how do you PRONOUNCE "SFOL." Or even SNFOL. There's the rub.

    As for the Tinkertoys, I did a lot of windmills I think. A ferris wheel would still be easier with those. Trying to figure out how to Lego a MOC ferris wheel...

    Klatu, you said "we." Are you over age, er, 50?

    @Sanddoodle Even 60 is in my rear view mirror, fading into the distance, despite the "objects in this mirror are closer than they appear" label.

    ^That is fantastic. I hope to be still be building Lego into my 60's-70's as long as I don't start knocking things over with my old man balls ;)

    I'm almost finished with one now... I started with the wheel configuration from #4957, and built benches to hold 2 minifigs apiece. With a blue, light-bright-orange, white and light bley color scheme, I'm rather pleased with how it turned out. As soon as I finish the ticket booth I'll post a picture of it in the MOC thread.

    @Pitfall69 you probably need to worry more about knocking things over with your eyestalks. Lego is the coolest hobby I have ever taken up. I did those Puzzle3D buildings (and one spaceship) back in the 80s. They were limited to the one build and were all large, hard to display. They also lacked the whimsy and humor with which Lego abounds. I hope to still be building Lego Middle Earth when I'm in my 90s.

    After seeing some incredible collections her is my collection, It's not much:

    I have the Minifigure Collectors Boxes for displaying the best from my collection. I display my empty boxes in a spare wardrobe whist my Diagon Alley is very busy populated by collectible minifigures and minifigures from ploybags.

    I have a plan to buy http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/catalog/products/40198396/#/00198402 when I have another modular building or two to start my Lego City on and make used of all those Super Heroes vehicles. I plan to purchase bookcases with glass doors for my display models. I will use the Lego Storage boxes http://brickset.com/sets/5003575-1/4-stud-Red-Storage-Brick for aesthetics and storage of small items.

    ... just kidding, that's unfortunately not a part of my collection :/

    ^ If I remember correctly, that was built while CC was still in production. So while it was impressive to see when it was built people weren't gawking at it like they would now.

  • ecmo47ecmo47 North CarolinaMember Posts: 2,101
    Still...I'll bet the wife still wishes she had a new car! I estimate the current value of that at about $13,000.00.
  • ecmo47ecmo47 North CarolinaMember Posts: 2,101
    15K+ if you used the original 2362b window that goes for at least $5.00 apiece.
