Guys, I just provided the link for the file 3 posts back.

Also, it won't ever be formally upped to the site, as they don't host repro covers.

They are those shelves that BB had on clearance a couple months ago. Can't remember the brand. I really like them and the glass doors are a nice feature.


Oh man, really? Shit... I could have used some like that.

Those cases look like that retro game case project thing I stumbled across a while ago, I haven't really had a reason to look into it before because I had no retro games. But would anyone mind linking me to said case/cover project?

I've got an update to share with everyone, but it isn't strictly gaming-related, so I'll be kind and put everything in spoiler tags. I would've anyway just because I've got a lot of pictures. And a lot of mess, as you will soon see. Anyway, in case you forgot, this was my old desk:
Spoiler


And now, I introduce you to my new desk:

To refresh your memory—or simply catch up—feel free to take a look at my previous post to see the wall that was to become the board game area. The other two cabinets finally showed up, so I spent a large chunk of the day completely reorganizing our collection...
Spoiler


Alrighty, that's everything, folks. Thanks for taking the time to look through everything. I'm not sure when I'll post another update, but the time will eventually come because I'll want to show off all of the handiwork that will be done in my son's room. And I'll probably post some pictures of our room when we get around to it...it won't be as interesting, but I've got a nice little library and a ton of toys in there. Our dining room (last on the agenda) is also full of toys, but they're my wife's and I'm fairly certain they won't be of interest to any of you.

God, I need a desk like that. Mine is always littered with stuff. Could use the storage space.

I also like the mad stacks of recordable media. I've go the same thing going on. CD-R, mini CD-R, DVD-R, DVD+R, Printable CD-R, Printable DVD-R, mini DVD-R, etc.

Hey Zombie how wide is that desk if you dont mind take a quick measurement? Also if you dont mind where did you get it and for how much?

I don't mind at all. The desk is just a hair under 58" wide/long and 22" deep. I got it at Office Depot for $219.99 + sales tax. So...right around $236. And delivery was free. Here's the desk on their web site:
http://www.officedep...Desk-And-Hutch/

It costs more online for some reason. But if you have a store near you, there's a good chance that they'll have a display there. If not, you can ask about Item #645-108 and they should be able to place an order for you (they don't keep it in stock on location), hopefully for the same price that I paid.

It's too bad I didn't get it a week sooner 'cause it was recently on sale. Still worth what I paid, though. So far, the only complaint I have is that the two skinny drawers are attached. Also, it's a bit of a dust magnet...but I just discovered CRC Duster compressed air at Home Depot, which is probably the best air I've ever used.

These discs are the bane of my existence. I've got three of those 100-disc spindles, four or five 50-disc spindles, and a few 25-disc spindles...the amount of space they take up always drove me crazy. Maybe two weeks ago, I went through a portion of them and picked out about 300 or so discs to be recycled (along with three 50-disc spindles) and there were still too many. But now with my new desk, they're up out of sight and out of the way while still easily accessible.

It's super nice having all of these little shelves. I find myself just sticking random crap up there because I don't like having too much empty space. Ha ha. If you ever come over to build us stuff and mod our house, I'll let you have this desk when it's time for me to upgrade...if you can stand to wait a few years. One of these days, when I get my own room, I want to have a big L-shaped or U-shaped desk with a giant hutch. If you go during the right sale, you can get one of those bad boys for as little as $400.

Awesome awesome board games ZombieToast. I've just been recently getting into more "hardcore" as of late. I'll take a picture when I reorganize my collection next month.

Thanks. There are still quite a few that I want, but I'm quite pleased with what we have so far. Sadly, we hardly ever get to play most of them, but now that we actually know a couple of people in town, we're going to start having game nights a lot more often. We had about 12 people over before Christmas for Cards Against Humanity and it was a blast!

I look forward to seeing your collection. It's always fun to see what other people have.

ZombieToast, do you play any tabletops at Ottos? or paladins (before it closed).

Nope. I actually don't think I've ever heard of Otto's; it doesn't sound familiar. And I had no idea that Paladins closed! It looks like they're up and running at a new location on District Blvd, though. Either way, I'm terribly out of the loop.

Anyway, those guys tend to play a lot of Warcraft, Magic, and HeroClix...none of which I think are very enjoyable (although I like collecting Clix). But I did notice that Otto's has a Steve Jackson night coming up (according to their Facebook), which would be more my style. I usually can't participate in stuff like that, though, because I have to take care of my kid and my wife doesn't get off from work until 9 PM.

By the way, have you been by Leeters recently? The first time I went at least a year ago, they were just a little shop with a couple of tables...and now they've taken over a nice chunk of the East Hills mall and they've got computers and consoles all over the place. It looked like there might have even been a bar. Sadly, I didn't get a chance to actually walk around inside because I was taking my kid to his gym class, but it looks like a good place for weekly games.

No prob. Those repro covers can be tricky to track down. On the forums, check for any post form "shenske". He has quite a few repro covers in a link that in his sig ;)

Here is my 2013 update. My last collection update was post #1965 (January 2012) for reference. This past year for me was the year of boxed collector's editions and steelbooks. I went from 15 steelbooks 13 months ago to 86 (+2 more incoming) steelbooks.

The overall view of the video game collection.

Spoiler


Xbox/Xbox 360 collection.

Spoiler


PSVITA collection.

Spoiler


PSP collection. Nothing new really. The goof-off can is my bookend.

Spoiler


PS2 collection. Not much has been added since last year. The shaving cream is my PS2 bookend. It does have a Killzone theme to the can.

Spoiler


PS3 collection. Yakuza 3 is lonely...

Spoiler


Wii-U collection.

Spoiler


Wii collection.

Spoiler


Kirby's Dream Collection with Club Nintendo medal.

Spoiler


DS collection. Sorry about the random receipt. Sloppy on my end. The Starfox box is something I got with my Gamestop reward points. It has 4 dog tags with a picture of each individual character on them and a saying. "Do a barrel roll!"

Spoiler


3DS collection.

Spoiler


Random shelf.

Spoiler


Side shelf. I bag my opened steelbooks to keep them from scratching when I take them off the shelf.

Spoiler


Top of the shelves.

Spoiler


Upstairs collector's edition shelf.

Spoiler


Contents from the top of the shelf.

Spoiler


Top shelf contents.

Spoiler


Second shelf contents.

Spoiler


Third shelf contents.

Spoiler


Fightsticks.

Spoiler


Extras.

Spoiler


Guides. Final Nintendo Power magazine.

Spoiler


Setup.

Spoiler


Movies.

Spoiler


Movie steelbooks. These are bagged as well. The glare makes the spines hard to read in these pictures but they are perfect in person.

Spoiler


Random swag.

Spoiler


That's all, hope you guys like it. I suck at photography but I did what I could. I realize now that I forgot to photograph my Nes games, but I have not added any since my post last year.

Killer collection WV, it's so neat, clean and stocked with AAA goodness!

That 8Arc is sexxxy.

Any plans to get the Injustice Battle Edition? Your collection makes me glad I only have a 360 and no PS3; it would drive me nuts trying to decide which system to get stuff like that for.

I love the eightarc stick. I have seven fightsticks and the eightarc is the best one.

I love my fighting games so I will pick up Injustice when it comes out. I am not sure on which version I am getting though. I will have to check my funds and see if it makes sense to buy the good one.

I have some collector's editions coming up soon such as Bioshock Infinite ($150), God of War ($80), and Metal Gear Rising ($150).

Man, I wish I had all that empty space... so much room to display stuff. The collection looks great.

Squarehard is now at the hospital, recovering from said heart attack. He'll be back soon.


I need to post my collection soon. I've got a lot of stuff unorganized but it'll have to do for now. Our house is officially starting to go through cleaning in order to be sold (or at least, that's what we're all hoping for) and I've started to look for an apartment on my own. My collection will probably end up getting boxed up unless I luck out and find a nice, big place that I can afford... which will also mean no money for games.

Looking at all these collections gives me lots of ideas for my room, though I have a major space issue with my room. I have stuff just piled everywhere in the room, because I don't know what to do with it.

I'll take some pictures and you all can take a look, I'll try to get some pics up this weekend if not then mon-tues the latest.

I have three Sauder shelves that have nothing on them yet. The Nightmare Before Christmas bobbleheads are sitting on one, while the Call of Duty Collector's Editions, Street Fighter 25'th Anniversary, and Two Worlds II Collector's Edition are sitting on the other two. I am pleased to have the room to store all this stuff, and a wife who will let me. I imagine in the future that the collection will have to downsize to make room for kids.

I would have loved to have done a more detailed collection update with close-ups of my favorite items/games/movies, but I did not want to post too much at one time. For example, I was going to put my vanilla copy of Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch with my two steelbooks of the game, hardcover guide of the game, and Wizard's Edition of the game all in the same Ni No Kuni themed picture.

I also wanted to go into some detail about the prices I spent on some item. For example, I only paid $9.98 for each of my two Assassin's Creed Brotherhood Collector's Edition.

Every item in a collection has a story, and the stories of my collection are much too long to share over a message board post.

I love this thread.

Amazing collection and display. Very neat and organized. Hopefully when I have a place of my own, I will buy similar shelfs to display my collection someday.
Keep up the good work!
