The ever growing collection!The ever growing collection!

Hello everyone on MFC!!


I was thinking of showing people of this community how my collection have grown over the past two years! :3
Maybe you will find some inspiration for your collection, as I did from other peoples articles!

Let's begin with a picture from all the way back in January 2018!

Wow, I had so much space.
I always try to find just the right combination of figures, so some of them may be a bit expensive due to being second hand, we all know how the aftermarket can be sometimes!
But it's worth it in the end to have a complete series of figures.
I've only been collecting for a year at this point, so relative new to the hobby!

But even in these early stages of my journey that all started with that first purchase, I had some big plans!

Second "update" is from December 2018

One of the biggest changes this time around is that I turned on my TV screen, which until then remained mostly unused, into basically a ever shifting screen of various artwork from my fav games or anime. It also plays whatever related OST to the picture that is showing. It is hard to convay with a still image, but it truly helps bring that right atmosphere to the room when I want to sit back and enjoy my collection as a whole.

Here you can notice a difference on my Billy shelf from IKEA. I decided to upgrade it with some glass doors and glass shelves.

I know it doesn't exactly increases my collection, but it's an important step for any collector to protect said collection. The glass doors does the job and also helps it look a bit more neat.

As some of you may have noticed, I do not own one of the highly regarded Detolf, mostly because the lowest shelf is on floor level that in turn makes it hard to display figures properly!

It's also "impossible" to customize the shelves to fit the sizes of your figures without third party stuff.

You can't really use a Detolf for other things either, it looks weird to store manga on a shelf in a Detolf.

I still had space for more figures during this time, I know for a fact that will soon change.

Third "update" is from August 2019.

Only picture I have in good sunlight, it seems like I always take pictures of my collection in wintertime when there is zero sunlight for some reason.

The major upgrade this time is some awesome displayboxes!
They may be a bit expensive for what they are, but they are still superb!
A glass box you can move around and put wherever you want, there is even a mounting option to put it up on a wall.

A closer look inside one of them:

Fourth "update" is from today the 21 January 2020.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/01/21/2370919.jpeg

The biggest update from last time is some new art on "Best worst gang"
Aqua is useless as usual, can't even take a picture of her properly due to the lamps reflection.
To find frames for these, was a nightmare!
I wonder why people still use inches, one custom frame to fit one of these would cost 100 euros, I got four frames for 100 euro by importing them from UK, luckily they still are whitin the EU.
Why the hell is custom frames so expensive!?

And a brand new table in front of the sofa!
I truly had a treasure hunt for this table, I went to four different IKEA before finding it in stock.
This table made it easy to display "laying down figures" and other highly regarded artbooks!

And now for the big reveal, the wall no one cares about!

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/01/21/2370922.jpeg

I really need more posters to put over my white walls.
But I am very selective with those, so it takes time!

Suprise figure on the table! :3

I hope that you found this article somewhat interesting, if you have any questions about anything in the pictures feel free to ask!

IKEA STUFF!
"Morliden" Glass doors
"Sammanhang" Display box
"Sammanhang" Coffee table, Yes it shares the same name as the display box.

SebastianLover (1 month ago) #74449079I already commented on your picture post, but I can't get over how great your setup is. Your house was destined to have a figure collection in it.

Thx, I appreciate that! :)

D_A_R (1 month ago) #74401985I was surprised, that I don't really need any additional lighting for my Besta, unless I want to display some Figures in 2 rows. The ceiling lamp is enough. It was harder for me to display them in my Detolfs without any additional lighting because of the shadows. I think a Billy or a Besta shelf is probably the best solution for collecting. I'm not a fan of placing figures on the low shelves, unless the figures are really big. Right now I use the lowest shelf of my Besta for Hardcovers & Mangas, that are in a bigger format.
I really like your setup. It looks very cozy.


True, I also get enough natural light in the summers anyway... like you can see... I have big windows xD
Another reason I don't have lightning... I spend too much on other stuff xD

Super clean room! I was planning on getting a Billy too but I totally didn't know there's a full glass door version. Looking at your Billy instantly sold me on getting the exact same one.

Also, dat smiling Megumin on your big screen is frickin cute.
