Some collectibles end up on a nice shelf display, cabinet or whatever.
But what about all the stuff in boxes and storage tubs?
The things squirreled away in big ugly piles…..
that you don’t want anyone to know about? HUH?
Your SECRET COLLECTORS SHAME!
Yeah I know what you get up you, the skeletons are coming out…
What about Everything in Between?
GOD BLESS THIS MESS
I’ve got this lovely lot sorted below just how I want them.
But meanwhile on the floor below is this lovely mess…
NECA TMNT 1990 Movie box (I don’t want to lose the hands and accessories in the storage tubs), yet to be made Mega Bloks Technodrome (waiting on getting another shelf to put it on).
Plus random boxes shoved on top for no good reason.
I’m forever sorting out collectibles and boxes and places to put things and ugh! Just when I get a nice display sorted, the aftermath is boxes and things, or new stuff arriving that takes up the temporary space on the floor that I just sorted out.
I put up my TMNT NICK sewer playset thing… after it sat on the lounge floor for a couple months.
But the price to pay is more shit on the floor.
Not to mention boxed Platinum Unicron, POTP Grimlock and one lonely Foot Soldier still in the NECA animated style TMNT box set. Plus my refugee books that used to live in the book shelf now occupied by bloody toys.
I’ve re-arranged my Mega Bloks mini shelf to make room for the Raph set that came with Doom inspired Spider-Brain Krang (bright orange below) and I’m pretty happy with the new layout.
Shredder has taken the Bat-Mecha, he’s next to Krang and the classic Party Wagon – pay no attention to who is driving…
But below that on the floor…
Yup, another big pile of crap.
The comics are on the shelf, but the other stuff is piled up in front of it.
I swear every time I tidy up this spot and can see the floor again – it gets cluttered up again in only a few short weeks. If I could hire an assistant I would say “please sort out my boxes and storage tubs, I’m really sick of doing it. I am a lazy and pathetic human being, let me drop some trash on the floor just so you can pick it up”.
I’ve had a fair bit or work related chronic back pain lately, so have done less sorting/tidying than usual. You won’t believe how much shit I moved around in recent months. Not just collectibles but other general stuff in the spare room. how many times I sorted and restacked it all. There is so only many times you can lift a big storage tub at head height with a sore back before you say ENOUGH, and give it all a good rest for a while.
Go rest against a wall for a bit.
Hang around out back and just chill.
Sell some Energon to kids.
So, more messes to tidy. Another shelf yet to be – and then hopefully I will see the floor again. Can’t wait to get my Technodrome and Platinum Unicron on the shelf. And all four big NECA Movie turtles, it’s gonna look epic, awesome, grandiose! Or at least presentable.
On the top level will be a new Titan toy (well a redeco) and the amazing biggest ever Megatron action figure. More comics and books on the bottom shelf. Can’t wait.
