I'm starting to find a new passion in the hobby: how folks actually display their props and toys. For years I think my own collection suffered from the "Ikea Effect": too much cool stuff crammed into Detolfs and Billys - so much that what you're looking is a collection that gets lost in itself - and it starts looking a little cluttered and junky. I'm not knocking it - for most of us with limited space and budget it's still is the best "bang for our buck" - but there are some collections on display here (and the net) that really, really impress - that are about not just what's on display, but how they are displayed. Anyway, I'm starting to ramble, but I've got a small collection of pics featuring some collections and shelving ideas I really like and wanted to share them here. What I'm looking for are more pics along the lines of what's posted below - if you come across any, love to see 'em posted to this thread and shared with the group...

This one is also cool....
Smallest, but very nice displayed !

See, I VASTLY prefer this to any of the above...a few well chosen items displayed in a clean uncluttered way. Of course, if you HAVE to get everything, there's no way to avoid the crammed in look. I just think too many items take away from the clear, simple "museum" effect.

Now to completely contradict myself and show a "crammed to the gills" room I actually like: http://threads.rebelscum.com/showfl...ge=1&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=93&fpart=1#3274190

I like the pedestals here, just to move the collection off the walls and into 3D space a bit more: http://threads.rebelscum.com/showfl...ge=1&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=93&fpart=1#4495716

Calling Philip Wise! Philip, of Rebel Scum has an amazing display for all of his collection. I agree that HOW you display your collection is just as important as the collection itself!

GREAT THREAD.

We're building our house for a Feb completion date and will start on the basement museum pretty soon. This thread def. serves as an inspiration. My dream would be a close enough Ent. D bridge as a movie room that opens up to a museum for the rest of basement. Ah dreams.

I have a video of Phillips museum. I will PM him and see if I can post it. I nearly fainted when I saw it.

I think it is a designer shelf...
I have searched this showcase like a T-1000... And 99% of the showcase have glasses to separate each floor... but no one have medium plaque.

Here is the backside :

There's a guy in England. His name is CHRIS. Can't remember his last name. But he's the Star Wars/ Indiana Jones fan who had movie frames of a Star Wars planet (was it HOTH?) blown up to use as a backdrop to display his Master Replicas MILLENNIUM FALCON. He does an amazing job making this hobby look respectable.

This is a great thread. I hope more people will post pics of their rooms as it's really cool looking at all of the great displays people have.

I think you're talking about CKING, who is (or was) a member here as well. And yes, he really perfected the look of printing large scale screencaps of various SW photos, mounting them onto a foam core-type backing and then placing them behind his various studio scale pieces. A great look, for sure.

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but I think he stepped back from the hobby some time ago and posts very little, if at all, on here nowadays.

I am pretty sure he linked the site he got them made at.
