Anyone else running out of room?

Postby groundhog7s » Sat May 14, 2016 1:02 pm

I realized today that I need to start storing my Dorbz until I get a space to display them all loose. Am I the only one? I used to have this issue with Pops (was at 600+ at one point), but didn't expect to get to this point so quickly with Dorbz (I think I counted 168 with a few more in the mail). I'm not the only one, right?

Seeing them all stacked up like that gives a great perspective on just how many different Dorbz have been released in such a relatively short time. :eek:

I was on the fence about them and that crazy looking invisible jet box lol. A few weeks ago though I decided I'm a be a completist about it so the original XLs came to roost.

i feel so lame with my 92...but yeah i have been out of room. 1 bedroom apartment...all i have been able to do is stockpile them. once i get myself let go, I am going to try to sell at minimum half my pops to make room (and fund the transition). I think that as soon as they make a dorbz of something, i plan on ditching the pop version of it. OMG i need arrested development dorbz

I'm kinda in the same boat actually. Going to be downsizing our living arrangements soonish, and ultimately plan on living in a tiny house (ie around 250 -300 square feet total floor space), so I know I'll ultimately have to dump most of my collection, which isn't even that big. Even now, I'm kinda out of space. Of course, my display room is a disaster area right now too, so maybe that doesn't help much.

I've resisted DORBZ until just yesterday, when my Brother brought home five for me (Thanks GameStop clearance sale). Finally being able to hold them in my hands and see them in person has kinda changed my mind. I like that they're smaller and they are ever so cute. Not gonna go dumping my Pop! collection right now, but I can definitely see my favoring Dorbz over Pop!s in the future.

I've run out of room in my display area in the living room, so last weekend I made my wife help me clean out a spare bedroom and convert into a comic room/man cave with a bookshelf from the basement for extra display room. We've been planning on doing it for a while now but I needed more room, mostly for Dorbz, until I can drive down to ikea to pick up another detolf or two.

While I have 1/10th of the dorbz you have, I'm finding it difficult to store them because I can't/don't want to stack more than 2 high for display purposes on the very top of my bookshelves. Between the lack of depth of box + often having a bit of curvature, I just don't trust that they aren't going to take a tumble. I have baseboard heat, so I can't get my shelves all the way against the wall, either.

Yes and no

Yes I am running out of room, however it forces me to reorganize every once a while. This gets me to appreciate what I have as I handle them plus it helps keep them dust-free.

No, I'm missing a couple chases and SDCC & ECCC exclusives. I wasn't going to get con exclusives at first and missed out on SDCC stuff when it was affordable. At one point I was going to be a completist until they announced the low numbers for ECCC and I decided I can't pay what those would go for.

I was able to resist the TMNT, but I do have Wolverine, Ghost Rider, Superman, Freddy Krueger, Cowboy Deadpool, Ultron, Loki and Iron Man. The problem I have is that I want Civil War Dorbz, at least Cap, Black Panther, Falcon and Vision.

If they ever make Doctor Who Dorbz, I'll give in fully, haha.

I ran out of room and made more. I put some of them back in their boxes and stacked them up on the floor. Now I have a whole shelf empty. It won't be empty for long between SDCC and the preorder list I got from GameStop. Also I need to get Bob's Burgers and Willy Wonka that were recently released.

You know when you start running out of room when you have multiple Dorbz/Pops stashed behind other Dorbz/Pops on your display and it resembles a stock room. At least that's my issue at this moment.

I have them all hidden in a large box. Sometimes i would take a few out to show to a date or use them to decorate my desk at work. I would rotate them every few days. Weird thing is that older generations would ask if they're pokemons. Smh.

Thought I'd share an updated pic of my collection before boxing it up. I think it's somewhere around 260+ and looks less impressive in big moving boxes.
