I finally finished redoing the layout. I took out all my extra figures that were on the bottom shelf this year, and so I don't know where I'm going to put those... but here's the new layout for this year!
Saiyan Saga shelf
Namek Saga shelf
Cell Saga & Movie shelf
Buu Saga shelf
Here's a video. It's better than the pics since Photobucket resizes things so damn small.
first comment lol But seriously, awesome setup man. I´d love to have something like that in Figuarts version someday; at least Saiyan and Cell Saga. Love how everything is perfectly posed and lined up. How long did it take you to reorganize like this? lol
The funny part is, I have about three times as many figures as what is shown here. I have works in progress (only a few I display... like the Yamchas I never seem to ever work on...) and extra figures in excess of 200 now. It's a little crazy. I must be a hoarder.
I also have my DB collection which needs dusting and reorganization, and my smaller scale DB/Z/GT figure collections.

looks awesome! I wish I could have something like that in the future
You haven't figured it out yet? I'm the Saiyan who came all the way from Earth for the sole purpose of beating you. I am the warrior you've heard of in legends, pure of heart and awakened by fury. That's what I am. I AM THE SUPER SAIYAN, SON GOKU!
Of the shelves you have, the Saiyan is most bare, so maybe you can add the DB part on the left and fill in more space. Reason I am suggesting this is because your announcer custom deserves to be with the rest of your 5 inch scaled figures, so just bring the DB gang with him lol

Nice set up bran it was worth the time and I agree with Adam that ss2 gohan needs to hurry up and get done so he can get a spot in the display he's going to be fantastic when he's done his hair is killer.
I actually didn't do anything too special, but I do have rolled up double stick tape under certain figures' feet. The Real Works SS Gotenks has feet at an angle and requires a base to stand, so I have some rolled under his heels for example.
The Shenron can be had for less than $100 if you are patient on eBay or buy using buyee.com. I think I paid about $40 for guru a few years ago. I bought the pod when brand new, so I got it for about $20. And Adrenaline got me Porunga for about $20 I think. It isn't a great sculpt, but it's better than $200 for one of the Japanese ones.
I hated the base the Shenron came on. It smelled horrible, like swimming pool floats. If you check the Bootleg Check This Out topic, I posted a link to the bootleg floating Shenron figure recently. I like it better, but if you are sensitive to chemicals like I seem to be, the odor will bother you. The link I posted a few days ago was a VERY good deal for it.
I'm surprised this post hasn't got a sea of comments? I have checked out your collection pic's and customs numerous times(the way you click your custom pics along with the comparison of other similar figures is neat, very clear and super helpful with the added insight of what you feel while making the custom explained is a nice touch), I have even downloaded the video of utube to catch a more detailed glimpse of your collection(I must thank you for that hot water trick). You've got a very very nice systematic display of your DB/Z/GT collection Branjita. I agree that the 2015 display style looks better then the 2014 one. Got to admit I am in awe of your custom Burter, he is purely perfect in every sense! Even the Goz and Mez look amazing! Nappa and also the Shenron looks great, goes well with the Porunga, just not sure why you never got the Jakks GT yellow and red dragon. After reading what you had to say, it has answered my doubts about your updated collection video, I just felt that many figures were missing in your video, I don't follow much of all that goes on in this site but I sure know that you and another person in here, have most of the DB/Z/GT along with custom characters then any one else in here, there or anywhere, so somehow that video did not showcase all of them is what I felt, I guess not enough place to display the remaining 200 or more figures kept under wraps? I hope that someday you would be able to display each and every DB/Z/GT figures that you own. Thank you for sharing your customs and collection pics with us but don't stop here... keep them updates coming! All the best.
Thanks for the compliments Alden!! I used to own the red Jakks Shenron, but I hated the way he looked. So I settled for the enlarged bootleg version of some 3.5 inch one that you can see on my shelf. He's only about 8 inches tall, but at least he fits on my little staircases.
I haven't figured out what to do with my other figures. Most of the ones not displayed are either custom figures that are works in progress or they are figures I purchased to use for custom figures, and there's about 200 or 300 of them. What I need to do is sell my HG collection eventually, so I can have some space for other stuff. I don't get a lot of enjoyment out of them because I can't display them anywhere but my closet, and they keep falling into my clothes. So far I haven't lost any pieces, but I will eventually. Bulma fell into my pocket on a pair of shorts LOL.
My new job sure has taken a lot of time away from me. I went from being able to customize nearly every day, to basically never, and I haven't had time to get on here either. I'm not allowed to do personal things at work, so I can't look at DBF on my computer at work, and it's too hard to keep up with via only my phone.
