    Start by recycling all of the packages. Yes, I know that is going to be hard to think about, I went through the same thing about 6 months ago.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    looks a little horder-esque. first get some kind of system even if it's push pins to hang up those carded figures, at least it gets them out of the way, then figure out how to display the rest. a collection makes no sense if it's not displayed, if you lack the room look into storage for the time being. my latest acquisition I{ haven't made space for, I need to get on that, put up some more temp shelves etc. until my house is built I won't be able to display as I wish, but it's better than nothing.

    Wait a sec. Your collection fits in just one room? Come back and talk to us when you have a real problem.

    I went through the same thing around 2005. At some point you realize you can't have a big collection if everything is MOC. I decided to keep just a few things sealed but opened the rest. If it was something I didn't think I would enjoy loose then I realized I didn't need it and either sold it or gave it to a friend. I kept my MOC 80's toys sealed of course.

    Seems pretty tame to me. You still got place where you can move around freely. You're good.

    They are hard to find these days, but old fashioned jumbo storage cartons can help at least get the stuff you can't put up away safely and soundly, and also actaully gives you some space to display stuff, both on top and on the flat sides. The problem with the plastic containers is that they aren't flush on the sides. Downside with the cardboard cartons is that they aren't as sturdy, but packing them carefully and not overstuffing them helps keep them from bulging. They can line up neatly along the wall.
