Recently, Ikea had a one day only sale for their Detolf glass shelves. These are very popular among many toy collectors, but as they are a bit on the small side (ie; not great for jumbos), I never really thought of getting any for myself. But at only $20 each, I figured I would go grab a couple just for the hell of it. I'd try them out and if I didn't like them, I figured I'd have no trouble finding another local collector to take them off my hands.

I brought them home, set one up and realized that although Jumbo Machinders were too big for them, they might be just the right size for some junior machinders! My collection of these toys has long been stored in a way that really didn't do them justice and here was a proper solution. So I assembled the second unit and moved it into the back toy room. When I did so, I realized something. If I moved another, basically superfluous piece of furniture out of there and slid my big glass case over, I would have nearly the exact amount of space I would need to fit two more Detolfs in there. Oh, if only I had gone back to Ikea to get them that day! Instead, I would have to pay the full price of $60, but I decided it needed to be done. Within a week, two more were home and assembled and the new and improved toy room was ready to be revealed.So I figured I would take a cue from The Enthusiast and make a blog post about it.

So I figured that since I contribute to a site called collectionDX, I should probably add my collection or something?

The toy room is in a state of transition right now. I'm re-organizing the whole concept. Because of limited space, I'm deciding what to bury in the crawlspace, so tough decisions are being made.

My G1/Diaclone cars are being temporarily retired. V1 1/60 Macross? Sorry, fellas. SOC Mazinger Ladies? I love you, but you are taking a nap for awhile.

Sometime in the far-flung future, I will have a museum-like addition to my home to store every piece in its own spacious well-lit glass case. In the meantime, the display is just a reflection of my current taste and values.

My secret shame revealed! Shelf upon shelf of, gasp, Sentai! My wallet is very thankful that the toys have mostly sucked since SPD. (I did purchase one of these from Sanjeev, though)
