My Room is an Otaku Museum Part 3

Half a year later, I bring you all my 3rd revision to "My Room is an Otaku Museum" where once again my room has undergone reorganization to accommodate such a large collection. I returned from Japan 2 weeks ago with more stuff than ever and didn't have the space in my now-6-month-old glass cabinet for any of it.

Click here to see the loot.

For those of you unfamiliar with my older posts:
My Room is an Otaku Museum Part 1 (May 5, 2008 - One year ago!)
My Room is an Otaku Museum Part 2 (Oct. 6, 2008)


The top picture is the new bookcase and dresser unit I bought from IKEA. It's a dresser, a small bookcase, and a tall book case. I planned this arrangement out myself and made sure I got glass doors to go along with it. The glass is VITAL for my collection as my room collects more dust than is naturally possible. Since the installation of my first glass cabinet (seen in the bottom picture) I haven't had to dust anything in that cabinet. It makes all the difference.

If there are any questions, I'll address them in the comments section of this post. It's doubtful at the moment I'll be doing another one of these half a year from now as I don't have very much I plan on ordering. Maybe in a year though you'll see part 4.

I'd also like to extend a "thank you" to our beloved Danny Choo for recognizing my efforts to make myself poor by posting my loot over at his site. It's really helped me gain a lot of visitors.

Love that display case! But where's all the manga and DVDs? An otaku museum must have ample quantities of both!

Bastille said...

Wow, you're one of the few people in the Lower Mainland whose merchandise collection puts mine to shame. I'm impressed.

k said...

Nice collection!

are you planning on charging for entry into your private museum? ^^

ClearTranquil said...

I don't plan on charging but I don't mind visitors.

I don't have much of a manga collection. They can all be seen in these pictures. My DVDs however, those are all in the movie room downstairs...

Blowfish said...

where did you buy your first cabinet (big one)frm?Or is it costum made?Looks pretty sweet.
Detolfs are nice and cheap but no eye candy ^^

ClearTranquil said...

The wall-mounted one is custom made from cheap chip-board from Home Depot. Because of that, it required a lot of fortification.

The tall bookcase with glass doors is a BILLY bookcase from IKEA.

phossil said...

Wow, you have a very large and extensive figure collection. When did you started?

Rin said...

The tall Billy bookcase looks nice. Looking to get one from IKEA.

It's really impressive how your collection grows within 1 year. I thought mine is fast but yours grow much faster ^^;;

I love what you have done for your room. The colors tone and figure goes very well. I'm eyeing on your figma collections. LOL Well done!

Really nice collection and display cabinet. Where did you get that large glass display case?

lovelyduckie said...

Seems like you may be running out of room soon? If so do you have any plans on what to do about space? Another shelf? Put some figures in storage? I'm curious because I'm someone who seems like they may have to face making such a decision in the next year or so about space.

I see you're a Final Fantasy Play Arts collector too. I hope you don't mind if I ask you to please support any these petitions that you might be interested in:

Final Fantasy VIII Play Arts Vol.2
http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/ffviiiplayarts/index.html

Final Fantasy VI Play Arts
http://www.petitiononline.com/ffviip/

Final Fantasy IX Play Arts Vol. 2
http://www.petitiononline.com/ffixpav2/petition.html

Final Fantasy VII Cid & Barret Play Arts
http://www.petitionspot.com/petitions/ffviipa/

I believe, once these get enough signatures, they can become reality just like 1st volume of Final Fantasy IX Play Arts (soon to be released) which was a product of a successful online petition http://www.petitiononline.com/ffixpa/petition.html

thankyou!

(great setup by the way)
