Hi!

I think it's about time for another update.

For those of you who don't remember you might want to read this first:
http://www.ntfa.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=5737

At that point I had pretty much made up my mind of getting rid of my whole collection.
So what happened? Well, I actually started selling of my MP's and my MIB Fortress since that's where the big easy money was.
After that I started selling of other stuff I didn't need, such as vintage videogames, Classic MOTU and various electronic devices.
Now all of the sudden I had made som decent cash and thought. I'll wait with the rest of the collection, if money is needed I'll just sell some more.

And I'm happily to say I didn't need to, and a year ago we bought our first house smile.gif
One of the rooms of the house was really worn down and had been used for storage, but after some paint and some new floors my nerd-cave was ready.

But before you look at how my setup looks right now, heres two old threads of how my setup has looked in the past.

And heres what it looks right now, more is on the way but I hope you enjoy the pictures smile.gif

I made the frame from plane white shelves, and the shelves are sides from two butchered Ikea Detolf displays.

Very nice display, man!

Though it was not anywhere near your collection I sometime wish I hadn't sold most of my stuff. But something had to pay for my cravings for MP and third party stuff.

What pieces are you looking for?
