I had a search but could not find a thread like this, I thought it would be good to have a thread where we can share photos of our collections and setups.

I have most of my Technic collection here. Last time mom visited me she brought me a lot of the Lego pre-dark ages that I had assembled in recent year at their house and said I should keep it here instead! I think the 8815 and 8810 is back at my parents and some Lego City models.

The 8835 (forklift) is a new acquisition, all other studded technic I got before the dark ages.

Shelf 1: 8066, 9391, 8022, 8067, 8064, 8042, 8828, 8032

Shelf 2: 8835 (hard to see), 8868, 9397, 8071

Shelf 3: 8110

One prerequisite when I moved was that the models should be kept in a bookcase with doors (preferable glass) to avoid getting dust on them. I'm also considering attaching a pull down blind on top of it to block UV light (but there is no direct sunlight at the bookcase).

I'm looking for more self-storage fore the models, the are cramped in there a bit too much.

Now over to the setup. Except for building official sets I do some building freehand (no prior work at the computer to build the model virtual) and found this setup to work quite nicely. I can easily move everything and when not opened the boxes keeps dust away.

The boxes on the floor is not placed there when I work, they stand on the floor beside me (one for wheels and one for studless straight long liftarms.

Not in picture are some prototypes and machines that waits further construction together with the parts in boxes is the sets 8258, 8043, 8069, 8047, 8284, 8049, 8274, 8295 and 8547 (NXT) plus bricklink orders for extra parts.

And last, 9390, 9392, 9393, 9396 and 9398 are MISB in some wardrobes, awaiting my free time to build them.

Edit: If someone looked closely at the technic model picture you might notice that the 9397 and 8110 lacks their battery boxes and the 8868 has its box disconnected. That's because I don't like to keep batteries in the models on display. During the dark ages the alkaline batteries got left in the 8868 box and they made a mess, had to clean the metal plates off with a dremel.

And the batteries I have goes into my MOCs for play and testing where they do a hard work.

The battery box (gray) for the 8064 on the first self is till at my parents. The one from 8868 is used for that one too when I display my sets.

Edit 2: Freekysch, nice display with the LED lights. I gotta install some lights as well!

Edit 3: Forgot one thing, that isn't really Lego related but counts as a good thing for the 'setup'. It can't be seen in the picture but from the "lego desk" I can push myself 1 meter backwards in the office chair and at the same time turn 180 degrees and I end up at the computer desk (where I'm now writing this).

I've got quite a big collection and I don't wanna jam this thread with that many pictures. Instead visit my imgur gallery.

You can also visit my Basebrick account to see the sets I've got (total parts = 41449) and I've got much more LEGO than displayed there, for instance, almost all parts of my airplane.

I'm sure I ain't got the biggest collection around here. Who does?

I like the showcases/shelves you guys have got, and I also like that one is using a toolbox as a part storage.

It's got to be Blakbird (see his Brickshelf gallery). He owns ALL of the Lego Technic sets ever made! :cry_happy:

2.2 pounds is 1 kg. I made a mistake on the new calculation my weight is 270 pounds or 123 kg (heavy dinner) but never mind I'm also very bad pilot, 17 years training make you strong but also very heavy :angry: and not dieting aid :laugh: .
