But it can never hurt to put the shelves high enough ))
I bought my shelves from Ikea. There are better, I know. But for the supports I have used 7cm and 10 cm plugs, so they are really firm against the wall. I gonna go all around the space, linking spaces and buildings. This will be my city, from which I can take stuff to play with.
I sold all my Lego in September 2017 because I was going to buy my first house and, besides needing the money, I also wasn't feeling too well with my collection. I had every Lego Star Wars set since 2010-2011, all the special licensed lines (Scooby Doo, Spongebob, etc), most of the DC/Marvel figures and all the D2C sets since 2013. It was a lot and quite a mess to be honest. I bought sets/minifigures just for the heck of it and even though I did put time and effort in my display, things were getting out of hand. So I sold everything I had.
Fast forward to like june of last year and I really missed Lego. I managed to live without it for a few months, but once I settled down I missed the Bricklink adventures and occasional set builds (I mostly built custom stuff or mocs of my own). So I decided to get back in and mainly focused on what I really liked: which is Batman/Super Heroes and Star Wars.
But I didn't want to buy Star Wars sets just because I can, I wanted to only buy what I find iconic, mostly minifigure scale and/or worth the display. There weren't many sets that fit that description so that was fine as it wouldn't take that much display room.
I have my own room which is 4.00 by 2.70 meters and I originaly used as a gameroom. However I needed a desk where I can build so I changed everything into a Lego room last week. There is still a gamingchair in the middle of the room, but that doesn't interfere with the rest.
TL;DR my lego room:
I divided the Batman/Super Heroes and Star Wars section. I made the Star Wars closet myself with a background I bought on Aliexpress. I measured the dimensions for the other sets so it could fit. The Super Hero stuff is on Ikea Lack shelves.
I'm still working on my minifigures display (picture 2), but I have to wait for the CMF stands in white which I ordered last week.
You can see some Overwatch and Harry Potter sets, but I could't resist those (although I only buy the HP sets for the figures). The Shuttle looks really cool as display piece on my desk so I'm not to bothered by it. Ah well, I want to keep it this 'clean' but you never know what Lego gives us in the future :p
Yes, I know. I placed the MF there on Wednesday so I didn't have time yet. But I wil look into that in the nearby future.
Eventually I found something: I've not finished building them yet - some compartments have doors and I still need to secure it to the wall. Here's a picture - most of my sets are broken down for space but you can see a not-finished Ninjago Docks and TLM2 Escape Buggy.
My guess - industrial nose and ear cleaner.
It's a Yarn ball winder used for knitting - the top rotates when a handle is turned.
Additionally I have a few of the smallest size Lack shelves to also mount and load up.
This room also serves as our media room. I turned the closet into an entertainment center with built in shelves and currently one of those shelves is also full of LEGO sets.
...And, I'm already out of room!
Also, as a taller individual, I can appreciate the higher shelves. Granted, it sounds like it's for the train layout, but still.
I also need more information on your "Star Wars themed amusement park"
And do the dots represent random PAB cups sitting around? I'm sure that's what a layout of mine would look like at least for a period of time.
So the main reason I am doing a Star Wars themed amusement park is because I have a few star wars sets I want to display, but it doesn't really fit in very well with the other City/Modular sets I own. So I thought the best way was to add it to the Amusement park! I changed the idea a bit and I am going to keep the fairground sets in a separate area of the amusement park from the Star Wars sets. I have the Y Wing and resistance X-wing, so my plan is to set them up as if they were rides - elevate them and build some stairs up to them as well as add some sort of background (maybe for one a black background with starts build out of lego?).
I also bought the Echo Base Defense and Endor Assault sets that I thought could work really well as Amusement "rides" - not sure what you would classify them as.
The random dots are supposed to be trees! haha I guess I need to work on my tree design. But I do have tons of PAB cups sitting around as well.
Behind the curtain on the left there are bags and bags of loose Lego to be sorted through one day...
That's better. Basement expansion is acceptable - but off the floor, depending on the aggressive tendencies of your local water table, waterways or precipitation patterns.
It's always a good sign when unopened flat-rate postage boxes are featured in photos. I feel more acceptance with the dozens littered about my collection.
And if someone can lend me a spare room, it would be greatly appreciated.
Luckily it was a very early Sunday morning so traffic & any related danger was minimal.
