I think the Prepac shelves will probably suit the type of shelf you are looking for, but the problem with Prepac shelves are that they are incredibly expensive and rarely ever go on sale anywhere. However they do look incredibly nice and the material used are way better than the Atlantic line of shelves, especially the newer models.

Here's a link to it on Amazon, but you're going to be better off trying to find it clearance in a store somewhere.

http://www.amazon.co...pd_sim_sbs_hg_1

But this is definitely your guy if you're more worried about warping and quality over price, but damn are they pricey.

And since your collection is still rather small you can go with the smaller Prepac ones, but that's just a suggestion if you decide to go big all at once. :D

But the same applies the smaller Prepacs as far as price is concerned.

*Edit*
Hmmmm...looks like a lot of the Prepacs are on sale at Best Buy right now, so you may want to take a look.

Those look like what I need. Thanks for the tip!

Sorry for the late reply guys. I'm at the Philippines for another week or so.

He does have Evangelion though. It's that big black box in the second anime pic.

Yeap, that's the one. It's the only one I could afford actually, and it was nice that I got it for free too. Haha. But I do want the steelbook one as well but I probably won't bite depending on the price.

lol oops...you know the first time i looked i swear i saw it but the second time i looked before i posted my reply i didnt see so thought i was going insane and seeing stuff again....thanks now i dont need to ask the doctor for more drugs.

that said what version of evangelion has that cool black box???

i also now see he has one of the ghost in the shell movies lol


Unfortunately, I'm not really into Ghost in the Shell. Maybe I should give it a try? I remember seeing Blue Gender when I was a kid along with the Inuyasha. Blue Gender always scared me. Big Monster Insects killing everyone. Haha.

Is that a Voltron poster that says... "Christians Unite"? Or are my eyes playing tricks on me?


Yeah. You are not crazy. I actually got that at a Christian Concert and I only got it for Voltron. I didn't really care about the writing. I'm Catholic and my Uncle always tries to make me convert. :lol::

Collection update for me. It's still pretty small as I'm still in high school. But I did get a job at best buy so hopefully I'll have some more cash for some more stuff.

Target's cheap shelves are actually pretty good quality (much better than the Sauder/WM shelves-- though granted, Target's cheap shelves are a bit more expensive)... I had a ton of them during college. I wish I had kept them though when I moved back home. It's too bad they don't make a dedicated media unit.

Anyways, it looks great man.

The target shelves he's got pictured though are bookshelves, or shelves not built specifically for DVDs or other media, have to be built with better material since books are god damn heavy.

Sauder actually makes bookshelves too that use much stronger material instead of the stuff they use for their media shelves. Although I haven't seen the Target cheap media specific shelves, but I would assume they're probably the same, but of course I don't know that for a fact.

I wasn't talking about "stronger" material, but better finish/quality. For example, every cheap Sauder shelf I have (including my bookshelf) has the chipping/peeling of the finish. Plus, there's a tiny gap between the top/bottom half (you know what I mean) in one of my shelves. But again, their stuff is cheaper than the cheap items from other brands.

And I know they also make good shelves. My Office Depot bookshelf is a re-badge Sauder (but it's the series one step above their cheap line, not sure what it's called)- I got it on the cheap during some sale and it's a damn fine shelf.

If you're talking about the one that's similar to the blu-ray shelf I have in my collection where you piece the two halves together you're supposed to screw the screws in on the top half all the way in and then a bit further and into the wood a bit, otherwise the top of the screw sticks out and causes that minor gap there since it's pushing against the screw top. I really wish they specified that in the instructions though since most people probably won't know to do that ahead of time, and it's impossible to fix if they've already put the backboard on too.

Is that what you meant by gap?

Hahaha your room looks like mine did before I boxed it all up and moved. I have like 8 or 9 very large boxes full of anime. And several also large boxes full of games. I had most of my wall covered in anime box sets.

Actually in that pic with the huge stand one of the rows are actually all 360 games. There's not 360 games in that PS3 stand pic.

Also, which picture are you referring to again with the anime, since the 5th pic is the PS3 pic.

Or did you mean the anime figures? From left to right it's Super Soniko, Robot Wars, next three from To Love Ru, then Macross and Code Geass on the right side of the SNES/Genesis games.

It looks like you can just put it on top of that shelf by the blocked door (if you moved some of those box sets there)? Or is it too tall to fit there?

I was proud of my collection, then I see the photos here... damn o_O


The collections here aren't about size... they're just collections. I like small collections as much as I like big ones as long as the games are good and it's organized neatly.

This stand doesn't have a baseboard, so it needs to stand on top of a surface with a bigger area for stability, or needs a flat wall behind it for leverage, but that was indeed one of the spots I considered. It's still a possibility, but for safety reasons I'm still trying to find the best spot just in case, but I won't rule it out.

Exactly. Any collection is a good collection, no matter the size. We are all here to share our collections with each other. ^__^

Seriously. Some of us here have abnormally large collections, so there's no point in comparing the amount of stuff one has, but more what one enjoys to collect.

Ah, I see.

If that's the case, I'd look into wall mounting the TV and then getting floating shelves for the consoles/whatnot.
