The shelf with my pretrilogy display on it is thankfully just bowed, it got put in my she'd when I moved to Portsmouth & when I came back it was warped, I did think about buying a new one but thought it might dry out & straighten out some..., it didn't happen though. I've got a long piece of wood securing it at the back but that does nothing for the front so I've bought another bracket for the middle & hopefully this will resolve the issue which worries me too.Alright, Kev! I like seeing how many Star Wars collectibles you have amassed. You mentioned to be moving later this year, so I'm sure your display issues will come to an end then. My only suggestion right now is to try to better secure your shelves. I'm a bit concern about the one long shelf over your TV. It seems to be dangerously bowing, and could mean disaster is brewing. Unless you've already done it and can't be seen it your picture, try to use an L bracket or center support to better hold the weight that's on it.
As for having trouble parting with some of your collectibles, we've all been there. I still have a complete set of Action Fleet, baseball cards, model cars and X-files statues put away. If you like them that much ( I know how much you like Dalek), just rotate some of the collectibles you have on display and bring out some of those you've stored away. That way you get to see them all at some point or another. Theme-wise, whenever possible try displaying your collectibles by films, but if space becomes an issue, keep in mind it is all Star Wars, and sometimes sculpts from different movies display better together than those from a same film. I'm sure you'll be entertained for quite a while when you move. Packing and unpacking will be quite a challenge
Note: I hope the Salacious Crumb bust I sent gets there fast
I'll be putting 2 new shelves up shortly for busts only & they'll be film & actually scene specific..., the first is going to have 10/11 busts from ANH but specifically those from the cantina & the second is going to have 10/11 mini-busts from ROTJ & they'll all be from Jabba's palace SO the Salacious Crumb you've sent me will be part of that display. I do like to do themes & film specific is always good..., when it comes to my temporary home book shelves displays though, it's just about fitting the maximum on a shelf, it can get 7 per shelf providing I've got the right ones together. I'm planning on putting them together more film specific though once I've got my 2 shelves up as there will then be more space to space them out better, that's the plan anyway. Apart from Salacious Crumb, I'm still waiting on 3D Yoda, Zam Wesell & yesterday I bought the first Vader bust & Slave Leia busts from a forum member & I'm also expecting 6 further busts from someone else so there won't be much room for long really. lol
