And yeah the desk/chair combo runs the risk of getting crowded. Iíll test it out and see how it feels on the fly I guess.
I went with 12 inches... it gives larger ones like Siege Ultra Magnus a good 3 inches above his head/shoulder pillar.

Re: Renovating space for display. Looking for advice!

I'm working with a 9x11 room, similar to your room but it has a window/vent on one side with door/closet on the other side. I have lots of space in the middle but the collection is getting cramped and I have run out of space for another shelf.

Here's panorama picts from both sides of the room to get an idea. Hope this gives ideas on what you want or don't want to have happen.


I would suggest room to let the door fully open otherwise your banging it on something every time you open the thing. Also be mindful of vents that pump out heat in winter, might not want that directly above your figures. Also be mindful of the light switch and outlet locations. And on another note, I suggest a ceiling fan with 3-4 light bulbs, having airflow makes it easier to spend time in there while providing adequate lighting to see your collection.

Thanks for the pic! Door will be swinging away from my office, though I’m not sure if I’ll even be using it. Good future-proofing as the kids get older, I guess.

Here’s the gutted basement, and you can see where my office wall used to be. Gonna move the door and go from there.

Edit: turn your head, I guess.

Alright new door location secured! Theres plenty of room for a CRT TV on the right and Unicron as well. I figure I might use that space for a table to lay out Fort Max as a city or whoever else in the future. We shall see.

probably not possible but hanging haslab unicron from the ceiling would be epic. Enclosing your shelves/book case will save you from dusting if that’s consideration.

Can’t wait to see how it turns out!
