    Uh... I have about 500 autographed ones. That's a lot of wall space.

    Sounds like a wall mosaic.  Why are we getting bogged down in details?!?

    500?  Geez, I'm impressed!

    Thanks. It's at least 15 years in the making. But I assume folks on this website understand large collections of items that take up space.

    Before long, the wife will have me moving the LEGO out of the living room since we need to "babyproof"...  I've got an alcove in the master bedroom with room for a display shelf.  Looking at the IKEA Hemnes bookcase to match the rest of the bedroom furniture, but it looks like *maybe* the shelves won't be tall enough to fit the modulars.  Anyone used these in their displays?

    Here's an updated photo of the mess in my house taken less than an hour ago. Can spot the difference from the photo posted 3 years back? :))



    Basically the count had increased from around 750K bricks worth of sets to now 910K.
    Is there 3 of each set? 
    Only those that I like, or on heavy discount in which case I buy for parts.

    Huh.  Got me there.  Frames on the wall for those... the rest in a lightless box!  
    Also, CDs are already digitized. :)
    And no lossy compression either.

    Babies are not very tall, just keep it in the living room on shelves ;) (the Lego, not the baby)

    @SumoLego though your display ideas do sound better than my 'Superhero drawer' organization at the moment. At least I've got a few shelves being useful.


    What's the origin of the building on the right, with the stairs and the arches?

    @HugeYellowBrick that was me attempting a townhouse with a garage that would fit a Speed Champions car so that I can work those automobiles into my city. I wanted a functional garage, but also living quarters above. The interior isn't done. It doesn't even have a staircase! But I think the outside is about to my liking.

    @Astrobricks yes, sort of. The one with the garage is my own making, while the other two are just recolors (one reversed) of the modular Pet Shop townhouse.

    "Uh, Bob, I can't open my door in here..."
    *Bob gently opens his door just a big enough crack so that he can slip out without hitting the car door on the wall.* "Oh, just go out through the sunroof, Steve."
    ...
    "This car doesn't have a sunroof!"
    "Oh, yeah, that's right, that's the other car. I think if you pull down the back seat, you can crawl into the trunk, and hop out that way."
    "F---!!!!"

    @SprinkleOtter this Mustang doesn't have doors... That's the luxury model of which you're speaking. And backseat and trunk? What kind of Lego cars have you been building? Heck, mine don't even have a gas tank, power steering, or windshield wipers! 

    On the plus side, since their vehicles can be built in like 20 minutes or less, insurance premiums cost about the same as a soda from the gas station.

    I'd love to MOC up my own Modulars like that. Perhaps something that smoothly transitions from regular Modulars to Ninjago City so I can display them all together. Of course, I'll need #70620 to go with my #70657 first, and I'll need a lot more space before any of that. One day...

    @Baby_Yoda thanks man! It's taken far longer than I'd prefer, but I love the modular line and being able to add my own is what Lego is all about. Yeah, space is always an issue. I finally got some tables from Ikea last month, but I'm already noticing the space constraints of an apartment. But I dont want to move for several years now, after doing it twice in six months.

    I love that Ninjago City and Docks connect, but them plus city modulars? It would be pretty awesome, and I suppose technically possible, but I'm not certain they'll ever quite 'flow' with my modulars. They're doing their own thing on the coffee table right now. That said, I also have a work in progress to add to that, as I've grown to love the Ninjago world (especially with the movie sets).

    The Ninjago stuff really doesn't fit with the Creator modulars.  I'm hoping they do a third one to 'complete' the block.  The two by themselves just seems... unfinished.

    Oh for goodness sake. Now I'll have to try and get one of those or create something similar. A Japanese castle is on my MOC list so I might adapt it to fit.

    @milamber did you space your shelves based on the Ninjago City height or was that just coincidence?

    That post was mine :) I have several shelves and they all have 62-63cm vertical spacing (that was the optimal according to the total height of the wall they are on), which is coincidentally equal to the height of the Ninjago City :)

    Just so you guys know that isn't a sticker taped on the headshot. A buddy in the company was nice enough to take a studio shot with my Lego head mask on with my suit. I felt like I was auditioning on Suicide Squad 2's set for another armed Arkham escape.

    No, I use "baby" as in "an informal form of address for a lover or spouse."

    ^Looks fantabulous. Question on your shelving. I'd like to put modulars on a long shelf across a room. Wondering how high I should make it. There's a considerable amount of "foot traffic" in the room from kids, so I'm thinking 5" or higher. Just curious what others have done. Thanks.

    Something to consider... if it's almost out of reach, might they grab the shelf and try to pull themselves up to see your LEGO, possibly pulling it all down? It might be better to have it low enough for them to see easily. (I don't know the answer; just wondering. But hey, I pulled a shelf down, thus partially dismantling a bunch of Nexo Knights... and I'm old enough to know better! Or maybe not.

    Yeah that's a good safety tip. Barb wire it is! 

    Seriously. I'll need to think about that. Cause that could easily happen.
