I wish I could get away with using bookcases for my stuff. I just know I would just end up stacking crap in front of the other stuff defeating the purpose of displaying the collection.

Figured I would post my collection. Don't mind the mess!

]

Bluray discs are on the far left. 3rd and 4th shelf down are my 3D Blurays. Steelbooks after that followed by regular DVD discs.

51inch Panasonic 3D Plasma TV.

LG 5.1 Surround Sound System.

HD DVD Player

Xbox 360.

Nintendo Wii

PS3

Roku box

Nintendo 3DS

Nintendo 3DS XL

Original owned Gameboy

Items that aren't in the picture. PS Vita, original owned game gear, nintendo 64, PS2, Nintendo Gamecube + a bunch of games for those systems. I don't have the room to put them on display in my small NYC apartment. They're in boxes under my bed.

If you have any questions or comments, fire away!

Nice collection can u post a pic of each shelf?

Man, I'd love to track down a Borderlands 2 Ultimate Loot Chest... but I don't know where to find one, not to mention I don't have space for one.

Looking at these collections makes me wish at times I could display mine better. I have so many games that my cabinets are 2 rows deep on many shelves. I dont have the wall space to display them in a single line with as much as I have. Plus I wanted mine to be closed off behind doors that can lock to keep them from my kid as I have a lot of mint complete SNES NES Turbografx games that come in cardboard boxes that are fragile. On top of that, my wife doesnt like the spine of every game showing as it looks way too cluttered for her as there are so many games. It does look cleaner with the closed doors on all my matching cabinets.

It's way better then the cheap shelves you get for under $50 bucks.

I need shelves now myself but can't bring my self to buy that cheap sauder crap. I already have one and the shevles are warped to hell from just DVDs.

I mean fully warped too if I took a picture you could see how warped they are.

I actually dropped my BL2 Ultimate Loot Chest. On accident. On my head. It hurt. And more importantly THERE IS A SMALL TEAR ON THE BOX AND THAT KILLS ME.

I have to think on how to capture my crap on the camera as it is spread out into 4 areas. My wife hates it and my son loves it...reminds me that I need to capture his crap, er...games as well.

I'll work on it and post some pics.

Since it's been about a month I'll just post some updates for the anime portion of the collection since that's really the only portion that has changed much since then.

Soon I shall be able to get ALL of my crap into one very crummy picture (the lighting in my basement is beyond terrible). No more multi-shots! Bwahahahahahaha!

That said, I did some rough math, and even this setup isn't gonna last me very long. Luckily there are other walls in my basement on which I can mount shelves :P

Nice collection. We have the same Charlie Brown tree and weird wing-style TV antenna. I think that makes us soulmates.

Thanks. It's not much, considering we live in a small place. I'm hoping to expand it when we get our own house(currently in a duplex). A rec room would be a god send.

Just about there. I'll slap the other side together today then finish up the center section for the consoles either tomorrow or after the holiday, and then obviously post more pics :)

I feel like my collection shrank by making these shelves LOL. More space to fill...

I really gotta order those cases and do my N64 collection. That looks so much better than my drawer of loose carts and instruction manuals. Nicely done, wiggy.

Yeah, do it! I'm so happy that I started storing carts this way. Sure, takes up more room, but it looks so much better :D

Are you going to add any kind of stain or finish? Or are you just going to leave it as is?

Gonna paint it white. The cave is painted green with white wainscoting, so it'll match nicely. Plus it's really dark down there, so that will brighten things up a bit.


Almost done now...

are the shelves stationary or did you put tracking or some other sort of movable mounting so the shelves can move?

I seems pretty fast to me... I mean, he last posted the empty wall on the 20th and he's already got the shelves there. I don't think I could do that in 3 days.
