Where do you store all this shit?

Postby Battlegrinder » Fri Jan 17, 2014 3:36 pm

I've started buying and assembling my army, and my various Lego storage containers are getting filled up at a rapid pace. I've been looking for some new containers to hold all the minifigs, weapons, armor, and assorted crap that I'll need, but I'm having trouble finding containers that are going to be large enough to hold the whole army (which is going to have about 150 or so minifigs once it's done). Does anyone have some suggestions?

just buy plastic boxes, maybe at Ikea, although it will take ages to go round the shop

Got three of those. It works. Unless the bottom breaks for no reason. Then you'll start picking up parts everywhere.

What if we just threw two mattresses down and don't have a bottom under the bed?

I sort big pieces by color into plastic boxes. I use fishing tackleboxes and craft storage things to hold all the minifig parts, weapons, and other small nubblies.

That's what I do too. The issue is, I'm almost out of room in my current ones, and I got them so long ago that I have no idea where they originally came from.

I sort my pieces by color into Ziploc bags, keeping especially interesting ones (like guns, gold, and food pieces) in a small separate box. I have two small bins for mini fig parts and completed-but-useless minifigs. I keep my MOCs and my armies on shelves.

I keep spare pieces in plastic boxes, generally sorted by category: vehicle parts, angle pieces, platforms, plants and animals, people and equipment/nublies etc. When I actually construct armies and MOCs, I put them on the shelves in my room. although I'm now out of shelf space. A couple of things are now on the floor by my shelves.

I keep most of the larger pieces in large boxes, as well as most models I've built. Models and MOCs that are too big for a box I put on a series of shelves I've built in the corner of my room.

I also keep several large ziploc bags for the smaller elemets, and place most of my minifigs, their accessories, and some models in a set of drawers that I have.

Giant plastic container in my closet. I haven't been able to build anything due to my current living arrangements.
