What should I do with my collection
Posted 26 August 2012 - 08:51 AM
When I came back from my dark ages, I went on a Castle collecting spree (cuz they're cool) and then eventually just buy sets that interest me here and there.
I haven't done any MOCs or anything. I don't think I have the passion/time/money to invest and compete with EB members. But I do like building and admiring complete sets.
This is a portion of whats on display atm to give you an idea. This is about 70% of what i own, the rest is on the floor not included in this pic.
Anyway its time to put them away but I'm torn between 'how to'
1) Disassemble them per set and store them seperately? This way I can sell them via individual sets if I decide to.
2) Disassemble them all completely and sort/organize them nicely for free play/MOCing?

If you really have to put them away then the only way to do it is to store them all by set separately. You'll regret muddling up the pieces, I know I would!

Seriously though, try and build a few MOCs. You may not be the kind of person who likes to, but start tinkering and maybe it will grow on you. Begin with something simple, something similar to the sets you have. Then see what happens from there.

Personally I'd keep your sets seperate if you dismantle them, and also if you consider selling them please give me a pm, i'm looking to complete the entire castle range so I can sit back proud at having 1 of every kingdom set ever produced.

Good luck with your decision.

After reading everyones responce and put in some thought, I don't think I would be selling them because money can be made but rare sets will be gone forever(unless you pay for overpriced ebay/bricklink which I'm not going to)
And i can always rebuild them if i want to as long as I have parts and instructions.
So i see no point in keeping them seperate per set, thus i think its time to pool them together. Time to check the organize & sort thread!
Duce: Its definately visualy pleasing to have large castles all together, I honestly didnt think I would buy this many. damn you brickset...
But I'm over the collectors syndrome, good luck in your collection!

personalyl I'd set your castles up somewhere like a full lego world, but that would need ALOT of space. Or you could make your own castle with bricks you order to add to the collection.
