    I definitely do not have room for the windraider, and no way I can squeeze the 2012 sub figures in, not sure what I'm going to do!!

    Well Im in the fortunate situation that I just started building my new house for my family. In this house there is a room thats 8*3 meters and will be filled with glass cabinets for my motu collection. I have a room like this in our current house, but smaller.

    This new room will help me at least a couple of years....but one day it will be way to small......

    Then maybe build a museum?

    I will link pics or film when its finished

    Space is a problem for me. I live in a small one bedroom apt. I only collect MOTU, but still. The solution that works for now, is that I just keep a small number of figures displayed and I keep the rest in a box. Then I switch every once in a while. I kinda like doing it, because I can come up with different scenes to display and it makes me feel like the collection is alive.

    This is probably the ideal scenario. Man, you are building your own house, so you can plan from the beginning. You should totally document the process. Maybe do a reality show

    space is the main reason i don't collect every figure. i'd rather have a smaller collection that can be displayed in a relatively attractive, non-crazy way.

    I rotate my display all the time. I put out figures I feel like looking at for a while, and put away the ones I'm tired of looking at. I haven't had space for everything for quite a while now.

    Yes, space is definitely starting to become an issue but that's mainly because of large toys like Swiftwind and the Wind Raider. If we were still on regular figures alone, space wouldn't be an issue at all. Space is really going to be an issue once Granamyr comes out!

    I have two extra rooms in which to spread this stuff out, so space isn't an issue at the moment. I dont' have any fancy display cases like a lot of you do, though. Half my stuff is on a bookshelf, and half is sitting in a rubbermaid bin. I'm okay with that.

    I have my office for my stuff, and most of it is in the walk-in closet in that room, which is not huge, but big enough..at the moment & I have Transformers in there too.

    But I also have the Legends, Deluxe & Scout Transformers hanging in strips I made from vertical blinds I split in half and cut hang tabs in in the main room above my computer which I am about to swap my MOTUC in the closet for the Transformers hanging in the room, so all my MOTUC will be in the room, and Transformers will be displayed in the closet.
    Not to mention I have a storage cabinet in the room as well I can put more stuff in...so at the moment I am good, but like I said all I collect are Transformers & MOTUC at the moment, I have 2 of the Ghostbusters and I do plan on getting a few Thundercats.

    I just built a large shop to put all my toys in. I understand this is not the solution for most, but 2/3 of my home was taken over by boxes and boxes of toys, so this was the next logical step for me. Good luck on your concerns. I hate having toys boxed up and I have had some put away for 10 years.

    If I didn't have a 2 year old, and had more shelves I would turn 3/4 of my office into a display room, but at the moment I don't have enough to fill my room yet...I am not a completionist, and I only collect what I like from any given line...so I do have time yet before space becomes an issue.

    Space is an issue for me. I love MOTU and MOTUC, and will most likely keep getting every toy MOTUC puts out, but I don't really display the figures around the house.

    My figures are in plastic containers for the time being, but I pull them out often. I sold my 200x collection (as well as a few others) awhile back anticipating these storage issues. Looks like some other collections might be on the chopping block, but that's ok, MOTUC is worth it. There's only so much toy love to go around, right?

    Space has been an issue for me at times. I have learned however to build up as high as possible and use every bit of space usable.

    Yes... space is a bit of an issue.

    Like a lot of you, 99% of my figs are currently in plastic totes, and I'm actually fine with that. But even with those, there's still only so much room.

    I am one of the fortunate ones who has a house with the kids grown and gone. I have a good sized bedroom with nothing but toy shelves that is mine and mine alone. I plan to eventually build a scale size Grayskull and Snake Mountain as diorama doors to cover the shelves.......just need the time and materials!

    Space is totally an issue for me. That's why I'm very selective about what I buy anymore. Moving makes it such a hassle to have stuff.
    Tell me about the loneliness of good, He-Man. Is it equal to the loneliness of evil?

    My space isn't really a problem. I hate to see so many people putting their MOTU goodies in storage. Especially loose collector's as I believe it takes up less space not being a MOC collector. I've got a 12x10 room dedicated just to MOTU. It's 85%-90% full. But, this includes my entire vintage MOC collection,200x MOC collection & of course Classics MOC collection. I love that people have them in their great rooms. My wife wouldn't have that & I guess I wouldn't want that either w/ 3 small children running around. Enjoy your SPACE everyone whatever it might be.

    I'm lucky to say that I have a room in my home that's dedicated to everything MOTU. From vintage to 200X to MOTUC. I think I have enough room as the current line grows but if things start getting tight the 200X stuff is heading for ebay.

    I could not part w/ any of my MOTU goods. Don't ebay them. Store them until more room is available coolapex. My Stactions take up tons of room. But, they're probably the best looking figures(statues) in any MOTU collection.
