Thought i'd start of a modern collection thread, feel free to show your modern stuff off here, i know a few of us collect both modern and vintage and after chatting with a fellow member on here we thought we might get this stickied, any chance mods?
Well my daughter left home and off to Uni last year and is really doing well, so that left her room empty, and my wife said i could use her room for a star wars den, so thats what i have done, its a small box room but enough space for me
heres my vintage cabinet

Absolutly awesome Grinchmeister! I wish i could use nice looking glass display cabinets in my man loft but the flooring is not as level as id like it to be so they wouldnt be safe. Love the full size helmets, the kids versions look better than rubies most of the time! I might pop up there now and take a few snaps of my **** for yall to peruse but be warned its more like a Wattos junk shop! :lol:

Thanks mate, glad you like the display, and chiffy, just wow! love how its all set out, looks like a cool retro shop space! so many cool goodies, love the vintage displays and the strip lighting is ace, very nice, and lots more vintage goodies to, i did plan on doing a mixed display at first but i quickly ran out of room before i got that far, i'll find a place for it all eventually

Top notch displays chaps! Chiffy that collection is a beast. Also like the lighting, gives it atmosphere and looks very cool. I am partial to a little modern but mines all packed away at the mo. Vintage has commandeered the display space. Should have more space when I move so may do a separate modern display.

Fantastic use of loft space Chiffy, I can see you have been a dedicated collector for years. I like the N64 Pickachu console too.

You are a lucky man Grinchy to have a whole room for star wars, some great modern pieces there.

I'd like to add my support for a sticky modern collectors thread. Being a teacher I now have a nice long summer to mess around with my collection, and I'll put a modern section together for this thread later.

My modern collection is rather small, but for what it is worth, here it is:

Thanks for the kind words folks, but it is is rather small, and the loose a bit pitiful :lol: , but I thought the modern thread needed a bit of love as it can be a bit quiet down here.
