The collection at the year 2009
After Heather's, Lee's and Phippy's post I decided to contribute my share to the sorting madness: a well deserved update of my Lego-collection!
About this creation
Since recent we have a new bigger kitchentable, hooray! Long live IKEA!! No more moving the bricks from one side of the kitchen to the other. That means I got the old one for my newly installed lego lair aka our library aka the master bedroom.

BEHOLD! My own laboratory of big and small plastic experiments! (go on Chris, say it!)



The working table of a Legogenius...ahum...back to the ground with your feet there boy...and...touchdown!



The selection by colour. Lot's of new colours have been added to my collection since 2007 due to the new StarWars sets and some interesting deals on E-bay. Yes: E-bay!

From top to bottom: 3 kinds of green (light, normal, dark) that will need more space and sorting. The drawer I like to call the Zoo: flowers, trees and animals. Normal bleu.

Yellow, very much added after that Aquanautsset I found for a bargain. White. And black. Slopes are excluded, go see the slopes-system!

Old grey. Bleu grey. Dark grey.

Red, that will need sorting too into a slopes-system. Orange. And a new colour I like to call: Bordeaux...

Brownies. Pink, purple, mauve, violet, fuschia...Golden pieces. And the new kinds of bleu, light and dark.



The other selection. These drawers mostly involve minifigbusiness.

Print ons, cocpit interiors. "Handles" because minifighands can grab'em (shut it Phipson). Everything droids and EXO-bots. Bionicle parts: about seven of them, people!

FINALLY! The minifigs sorted out! Heads and hats. Needfull things for hands and shoulders, even some footwear. Bodies. Pants.



The other, other selection. Some things are thrown together in one drawer because they fit more to a theme, a technique or an application.

Again, from top to bottom: One studded rounds, antennae and tentacles. Bigger round things. Engines, boosters, propellers. Wheels and tires.

Technic black. Technic all colours. Technic Yellow. Big whities.

Technic pins and rotational thingies. Exo hinges. Basic hinges.

Turntables. "Sideturners" as I tend to call them. Creator hinges. Transparents and canopies.



The slopes-system! It's very helpfull (personally) to select my slopes by color AND sort. That is sloped plates, slopes above, slopes under, curved slopes and sloped on the side. I'd love to do this for every colour, in time, no hurry. so! White slopes.

Black slopes.

Dark grey slopes.



Organizers! A very handy method for storing those little pieces that are hard to spot in the big mess. And they save a lot of room too.

My collection of Technic pieces has grown, allthough I don't use them a lot. Reason for this lies with the EXO-force sets. They have great pieces, especially the slopes, but they don't do much for my buildingstyle. Yes, I'm oldschool...



Tiles, grills and no studded pieces in general. This organizer is temporary untill I get more tiles or a handier way to store them.

One studded pieces. I put them all in a row to make them easier to fondle. Planning on adding the translucents too.



Obnoxious parts. To big to fit in a drawer or a "parts-theme".Owww, you wait! One day I'll get them little @%?!#

From left to right: Baseplates, plates and random basic bricks. Particulary the basic bricks still need sorting by colour. I've had my eyes on those bigger drawers Phipson has in his collection. Yes, those would do the trick...



Booklets. I tend to look in them for new and old buildingtechniques or just inspiration.






Thanks for looking around, leave a message if you care about my collection!

How many bricks do you have there?

Helaas weten ze stillekesaan de prijzen op eBay hee;) Het wordt weer interessant om naar Engeland te gaan voor een dagje shopping in de legowinkels van Bluewater en Windsor! Of je sluit je aan bij BeLUG en kan genieten van wat kortingen bij bulkbestellingen. Mogelijkheden genoeg om je collectie aan te vullen zonder een al te groot gat in je budget te laten slaan. Groeten, Pete(r)

Great organizing system. Much better than my boxes and bags. Time to invest in some more plastic! (Organizing bins, that is)

very cool, I have about 30 boxes just for this, but instead of doing the color scheme I do it by brick, my basic building bricks are done in color, besides that i got abox for plates,angles,technic, and more.

nice collection you have there. mine's closer to the size of your '07 collection, but it's not the size of your collection, but how you handle it, right?

Wow, another builder who sorts by color! Now I just need some of those drawers to replace my inferior current method of gallon size plastic baggies. ~Clefspeare~

Your start page must be out-of-date since that collection doesn't look limited to me... :)

Holy @*%# your collection is at least twice as big as mine. Nice.

This looks like a dream room for me. Unfortunately I can never seem to keep it looking like this... so I'm actually looking for a "quick sort" method. Anyone have ideas?

Very nicely organized. I have to say it improves the building experience greatly when you don't have to spend countless hours looking for a part. Lee.

I love the pull out storage drawers! And having all your storage fit nicely into a closet scores big bonus points. This is by far the most intricate sorting display I have seen. Well done Gio!

Quoting Dennis Price Seriously, this has to make building a much more enjoyable experience. Now all you need is a "sort and store" box for random bitsyou come across when breaking down a MOC.
oh it does Dennis, it does! Since I started sorting I took special attention on themes and application before "sort of brick". Sorting also allows you to build faster, and make faster creative jumps. It even makes me not immediately happy with a result; sorting allows you to enhance your creations. And on that note, let's make another kitchenmech, shall we?

DO NOT MAKE ME JUMP ON THE BANDWAGON! This is well-organized and builder friendly. Just box it up and send it to . . . Seriously, this has to make building a much more enjoyable experience. Now all you need is a "sort and store" box for random bitsyou come across when breaking down a MOC.

Quoting Chris Phipson Quoting Gio: "My own laboratory of big and small plastic experiments! (go on Chris, say it!)" Have I really become THAT predictable?
And beyond that, Chris.

now that is an organized system mine is just all over the floot, it really hurts your feet

Beats my system. I did have one once (after I moved), but my only goal there was to recreate every single set I ever had using organization as my primary tool (note that I have over 15,000 pieces). Good day

Sure beats my system of having bricks and parts of every kind scattered on my floor, not picked up since the summer of 2008.

Wow, some of it seems almost OVERLY sorted, if you know what I mean. Don't get me wrong, I envy the system but I'm probably too disorganized to ever have my Lego separated out that finely.
  April 17, 2009
Thanks for the tour Gio! Looks great. I especially like how you have most of the drawers in a closet. Not only does it keep it tidy and it just looks cool when you open it... but you do spend most of your time in there anyway. ~ Chris.

I like your sloped grill tile collection! I only have four of 'em...I guess I make up for that by having around 700 regular grill tiles. =)
