I am pretty much completely out of space now. I've already added two extra rows on top of the shelf I had been using for awhile, and the other shelf is completely full now. I only have some space for some DS/PS1 games atm, and then that's it. I just wish my room wasn't so compact. I can't really fit in another stand, maybe a small one, but that's about it. Thought about mounting shelves above my TV, but then I talked some sense back into myself so that idea is out the door. I guess I'll just have to figure it out ~_~.

Spoiler


that big one, what rack is it?

I might just have to take the leap and get that thing eventually, I'm always running out of space and having to re-organize my games.

It's actually a lot nicer than I thought it would be. There used to be an earlier version of this stand that Atlantic released where the base board was too short, and one of my friends who had one told me you had to mount it to keep it from falling forward, so glad they came out with this one, although I think most stores discontinued this guy, so it may be harder to find in stores. There's a smaller version of it in stores now, but it definitely wouldn't do the job knowing all the stuff you have :P

Yea I agree. I was talking about the same shelf earlier in the thread, but I have been overjoyed with it so far. As you mentioned, the bigger baseboard made it so I didn't need to attach it to my wall, and there it is extremely stable.

I assume it's not that hard to put together? Is the back solid and attached, or is it one of those flimsy cardboard pieces you have to nail on?

I probably would have gotten a second one back in the day if I actually had space, but oh well. Now I'm just wedging in stands wherever I can find space.

The back is that flimsy kind of board, and if I recall it's a couple of pieces, but they give you nails to nail into the back of the stand, so it doesn't stay flimsy. Everything else is pretty self explanatory, although I think the hardest part might actually be putting in the board on the back since there are no aligning or markers to where to nail them in, so you either have to measure, knock on wood before you nail, or just guess randomly. I didn't have much of a problem with it, but some may :P

It's really easy to put together, just takes a little patience since it's large.
The back is cardboard, but it is fairly sturdy and thick compared to most stuff I've had before.

Yeap, I bought it a month ago at Bestbuy, and when I went to go order a second one 2 weeks later, it was completely gone from their site /sigh.

Is it one of the ones you need to nail on or is there a groove you can slide it into? The latter is way better IMO.

Nail on :cry: I'm actually moving soon and trying to figure out the easiest way to transport it :drool:

Grr. Several shelves I have like that I simply don't even bother nailing on the back, and just have it open. Though with one this big I'd probably put the back on.

Yea I was contemplating doing the same, but I needed to have it about an inch from the wall since there was an electrical plug behind it, I figured I might as well just attach it. It goes on pretty easy though like I said and it's in two pieces so it's not too unwieldy.

Get ready to renail them back on. I moved and after I got the stand into my room, there were some nails missing from the back, lol.

Well, this one is pretty tall, so it's pretty dependant on leaning on your wall, so depending on how far out the base board on your walls stick out, the stands going to be tilted backwards, so the stuff on it may look like they're sliding backwards, but won't be by much.

I was hoping I could just separate the top and bottom and undo the 3 nails in the middle, leaving the backs on and taking the shelves out. What did you have to do when you moved it?

I just took all the shelves out and then left everything else there. It pretty much arrived in one piece with the exception of a few nails falling it from the back, but nothing too serious. It was sturdy enough for the movers to carry it, so that wasn't a big deal, but just that backboard was sort of irritating.

The adjustable shelve-height on that thing is a nifty feature. I wouldn't know though since I keep inheriting bookshelves and crates from older relatives who passed away. If you know anybody with a pick-up truck you can get some amazing deals on storage furniture at estate sales.

4000th post!

I've been slacking off lately on my DS collection though. I've been stuck at 500 for a long time now. Been concentrating on all the other systems I neglected while I was working on the DS games. I may jump back to it eventually. Maybe just a few games here and there.

I like that model 1 Genesis & Sega CD. They look a lot better than their revised versions. Never had one growing up (parents bought me a SNES), but I still want one just to have.

Why do you have a SD Dish receiver hooked up to that TV, though?

Been meaning to post some collection shots of my up and coming "Galleria del Dork" for awhile now, and a recent AWESOME addition of the Eddie Riggs statue gives me real reason to finally do it. Woot!

Thanks! Something about having quality statues of some of my favorite game characters makes me smile. Now if only I can track down an Agent Francis York Morgan statue... hmmmm... :-k

And yeah, I finally caved on those Ions when I saw em on craigslist for $100. Love em! Wish i'da jumped sooner.

I need to organize my gaming stuff (into one room). They're scattered throughout various parts of my bedroom and living room.

Got some nice collection(s) there CAGers! =)

best buy never ever takes anything out of the system, they just dont have it on the website anymore. when working there i used to look at the old nintendo and snes games and their final selling prices. some never got below 50.

if you have the sku for anything, they can look it up in the system. or if you have someone smart enough to use the system, yes it actually takes brain power as it is a little cryptic, they can find anything.
