Ah yes. It's a Technic Automatic Turntable. SL-1700. I don't use it much but it's cool to look at. I wanted to start a classic rock collection but they can be pretty expensive.

I hear ya. I got pretty lucky and found a lot of over 100 old vinyl's at a yard sale a few summers back. Got some old Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, ACDC, Sabbath and so on. All of it wasn't in the best of shape but it's nice to have them and best of all cost me all of $5.

I think my man closet is officially overflowing.

The bottom looks like my living room. And couch. And bedroom.

Back to school for my last semester :O

 

Not going to game as much. Gonna try to end on a pretty nice GPA. Only console I brought is my PS4. I brought my 3DS and Vita but I don't use them much. I brought games for my other systems in case I have friends bring their 360 or Wii U over. I don't think I will ever touch my 360 till spring break. GTA V is too addicting LOL. 

 

Sorry it's a bit messy. Just moved back in and i'm trying to organize a bit more.

This has probably been answered before, but do you guys have recommendations on good bookshelves? I'm overflowing with strategy guides and I need something relatively inexpensive to show them on that won't buckle under the weight.

Also, I'm no handyman, so building them from scratch is out of the question.

Most people here are partial to Sauder shelves, you can find discussion about them on almost any page of the thread :lol:

At one point there was a Shelving Discussion Thread. I think it's still there, just buried underneath a bunch of posts in the Shopping Discussion Section. :lol:

Make sure if you go with Sauder shelves you go with their actual bookshelves, and not the media shelves as they are not deep enough to hold the strategy guides, or at least not the majority of them that are magazine sized. Even the Sayder bookshelves are cheaper than most regular bookshelves too, and are made rather sturdy for the price, although they may also be tagged under the Mainstay tag, which is also a name Sauder uses for their products, and that will be the main brand you find in actual Walmart stores, and when you look at the instructions on most of them they even say Sauder on them, so same company, same product.

I'd go into more detail but about to board my flight to go back home to the US.

What's nice about Sauder is if you get a cosmetically damaged shelf, you can call them and get it replaced free. Some of their bookshelves do sag from guide weight though.

I'm probably going to get some IKEA Expedit's for guides, since i already have the big 5x5 one for figures.

Didn't realize he was asking about shelves for guides. Check Target clearance online. I got two really nice shelves for about $50 a piece, and each shelf was rated to hold about 75+ lbs. No signs of warping after I think 2 years.

As far as sauders and books go, I buy the bookshelves and use a 1x4 behind my collection so my games aren't way in back. That keeps my cases flush and I still can use other shelves for books.

It's really easy to reinforce shelves in order to prevent sagging too. Don't worry about it too much. All you really need is a drill and screwdriver to fix the problem :)

I never worry about game shelves sagging.. but my guide shelf is another story. I've had one of them for almost 4 years though and none of the shelves are are showing signs of breaking.

Here are a few pictures of my collection as it was a few weeks ago, before I packed it and moved. I don't have half the space all of this took up in my new place, so expect a lowball soon, if I can somehow convince myself to let go.  :wall:

And this is basically my set up right now:

Things should change as soon as I pick up some smaller shelves to work around the space limitations.
