wow, don't know how you guys do it, this taking pic of collection thing is certainly taxing... almost done. should be ready tonight/tomorrow morning...
Sucks, right? Looks like you did a rally nice job though
I actually tried taking a bunch the other day for both insurance purposes and to post. I've never taken good enough shots so that anyone can actually see what games I have, just those panoramic and entire shelf-at-once shots. My basement is so damned dark and I don't have a tripod, so I was using a chunk of 2x4 as a monopod and holding a shop light to try and get enough light.
I ended up with about 50% usable shots, and 50% blurry mess. Gotta give it another go. Maybe I'll bring my halogen garage works lights in. They're like as bright as the sun. That should at least solve the lighthing issue :P
Took me a while and I keep forgetting to include stuff as I have them all over the place. Some stuff I just don't know where it is and I will note what I have.
My TV and Desk
Final Fantasy XIII/XIII-2 stuff (from before,)
Games 1 (mostly PS3)
Games 2 (PS2)
Games 3 ( Misc)
Games 4 (Wii + Xbox)
Games Portable 1
Games Portable 2
Games Portable 3
Guides and artbook etc
Anime, Blu and Misc.
Ok, we are starting to get to the meat of my "collection". I care about these way more than anything above
This is just what I have in my place right now. I have a lot more in storage which I may get to taking pics of someday... Also have about 20-30 various figures just about, didn't bother taking pics of them like Momohime.
Scaled figure 1
Scaled figure 2
Figma / nendo etc
Didn't bother to take pics of my Gunpla. I have lots of PG/MG/HB and my favorite, RG.
Here are some Metal Build/Metal Composite.
Ok, gathering are recast of garage kit you can buy in Japan which is very hard to get for us not living there since you have to know someone going to one of the fest. Oh well... I wish I can get my hands on the original, but they are so limited that I won't be able to give my money to the rightful people anyway. Anyway, I actually like them quite a bit. Very detail, much better in many cases than the machine paint of PVC figures.
Misc. mostly cuz I forgot...
I have a little space in a climate controlled public storage location to store my stuff so the figure's face won't melt.
This sort of leads me to the real meat of my collection since you see their boxes in the above pic....
Dollfie Dreams/pure neemo / etc
No, I do not give them personality and arrange marraige etc like Chu. They are just like supersized figma
Pic I took of Asuka from Evagelion. This will be the only pic you actually see it. It's safe but I understand some people are freaked out by them.
Your stuff is WAY
too pretty to be stored like that!
I will be over shortly after completing the munnel in order to rectify this very serious video game collection display faux pas. I'm envisioning very simple cherry and birch frame with lots of glass and a handful of one-off door pull knobs in a variety of designs appropriate to your collection. LOTS. That stuff needs to shine!
Shit, if I ever get sick of making gameboys and such, I'm gonna start building seriously custom display cases for collectors. I could do that all day long!
I mean, that's a superb collection (more insane than Square's) but am I the only one who really, really hates wire racks? They make everything look so tacky...
Hate can't begin to describe my feelings for them :(
I use them to house my shipping supplies and even that irks me, though it's about the most appropriate use I can find for them since all the scraps and little bits of cutoff mess that I make fall through to the floor for easy cleanup.
Maybe I'll go snap those pics...
