Maximizing My Shelf Space For More Toys

It's been a hard days night and I've been working like a Wookie.

Day 19 of my 31 Days to a Better Toy Collection Challenge ended with an overall very productive weekend. I continued to maximize my shelf space, which in turn is allowing me to display as many of my vintage toys as possible.

This group of shelves has been earmarked for vintage Star Wars action figures and accessories such as action figure displays, Mini-Rigs, and action figures accessories like the Radar Laser Cannon.

The top shelf I am pretty happy with, although, I would like to get my hands on a Star Wars and Return of the Jedi version of the vinyl action figure carrying cases.

The second shelf I've been happy with and it has been that way for a while. It's also a special shelf for me as it contains many of my first Star Wars figures and displays the original 12 Back action figures.

Shelf 3 I am not a hundred percent with. The Sy Snootles and the Max Rebo Band feels out of place and really want to expand out the Display Arena. However, that will most likely end in a waste of space that I can't afford.

Once I continue to rearrange the toys it will eventually just click for me. Somehow it always does.

  1. That's a pretty nice shelf John where did you get it at and for how much if you don't mine me asking?

    1. My shelves have either come from Target or Sam's Club. They have all ranged in price from $40-$60. This particular shelf pictured here was from Sam's and I believe it was about $40.

  2. Shelf looks great.

    Used to have the Darth Vader carrying case. It's a holy grail for me as I have been hoping to find it again and get a great deal on it.

    1. Thanks Mike. I have always loved this case. My Millennium Falcon used to double as a carrying case until I received my Vader case. You may be able to pick one off eBay right now for $30 or less.
