My Complete Collection
About this creation
This is my complete collection of LEGO. Stacked, packed and ready for storage.

I have only photographed the bins - Taking everything out and setting it up for photography would be an immense task! Most of the bins contain built MOCs or sets in higher or lower degrees of dismantlement due to the stacking method.
The two bins to the top right and the long one below them in the main photo holds the remaining parts for building.


A top view, also showing the second row of bins and my stack of base plates & road plates.


A house i am making (not planned for posting) on the left, my temporary Desert Camo bin (it has shrunk some in size and is actually empty right now) in the center and a few empty bins & another temporary bin to the right.

The temporary bins are where i put parts i need - or think i might need - for a build once i pick them out of the main pile. Parts from new sets also end up in a temporary bin until i have picked out the interesting bits.


My desert on top of the second row of large bins. At the time of photography it was in the proces of being rebuilt, it is finished now (hence the empty desert camo-bin) and looks a lot better than the one i used as background in some of the latest army posts.


top: The pile. This bin contains the remaining parts. Bottom: The large storage bin. Contain mostly houses - set ones and my own - and MOCs or sets too large for the smaller bins.


To the right: Small bins. Contains mostly vehicles. Cars, trucks etc. Top left: The mini-bins. One contains mini-figs and string-stuff, one contains nature & food and the last one (behind the nature-one) contains the infantry part of my army.


A closer look at the mini-fig mini-bin.


The second row of small bins. The top two contains some army-vehicles & other vehicles.


And the bottom two contains only army-vehicles.


The second row of large bins.


One is for city-stuff, one is for army-stuff and one is mixed.

Well that's it, everything i have. Hope you enjoyed watching :-)

Quoting Jay Wilson That's amazing you are so lucky. Do you like to sort your Lego's if so you can buy sorting bins at Menards or walmart.
Thanks :-) Well i recently started sorting small/difficult to find parts but i have no room for bins to start sorting larger parts. Besides, most of what i have is in use :-D

Quoting cyberfrank 2010 it s a good thing to have containers, I store pre-made scenes and vehicles too, in a very similar fashion, but, my sorting system, is very precise, and function oriented, [check my 'cyberlab' post] it s great to be organized, it s efficient, try to add civilians with your military posts, that d be even cooler, I see you could make something just FANTASTIC with these!
Thanks! I'd like to set up a huge city invasion-scene one day but i have no space to set it up where i live now. Some time soon i hope! You have a very nice and efficient system of sorting but to me the 'everything in one pile' system makes it easier to 'wander off' and come up with new ideas and builds while working on the planned build :-)

Quoting Colin Small is a TFOL Hehe. I meant IRL. Almost All of my pieces are strewn across the floor. I find it easier to build in LDD just because of the organized, and availability, of all the parts. I'm trying to add more IRL creations (I have two right now) because there's more that you can do. But I find that I suck at not building in LDD. :P
That's ok, i suck at not building 'live' ;-D Well the 'strewn across the floor' method is pretty much what i use too. With a separate pile for parts i need or think might be useful to have at hand. These parts end up in a temp-bin if it's a lengthy build so i don't have to look for them again. So to keep it simple, all you really need is two bins: A large one for the main pile and a smaller one for the bits you pick out :-)

Quoting Colin Small is a TFOL O hai. Can u come over to mah place to organize mah LEGO for meh? I haz too many to organize by meself and I dunno how to organize. K thanks bai.
Heh that would prolly leave a virtual mess! You'd need ONE bin that's large enough to hold all the loose bits of your collection :-D I don't know how many part are in LDD but from the looks of some LDD builds, more than would fit inside the dome of a nuclear plant!

Quoting Chris Melby I am in that same situation also, No where to put the huge builds. Also, I hate doing the massive builds because taking them apart is pain. SO, my solution to this dilema is to limit my builds to 75x32 bases. If it can't be done in that amount of space, then I ain't build'n it! Z
Thanks for your comment :-) Well with the size of my collection and the volume of available space to build in, even 75x32 studs would be a far reach for me. My biggest build (ICBM launch vehicle) is 76x12 studs and it would be very difficult for me to find enough usable bricks in my stock to build anything larger. Not to mention finding a spot to place the build when completed!

Quoting MortalSwordsman . A fine collection. I too need to store my Lego like this. It can sometimes limit creativity because everything is stored away and it is difficult to start building. Good luck finding inspiration. How about a Humvee.
Thanks :-) I agree! I can't really build anything huge because there would be nowhere to place it when it was finished. I still have a bit of room left for smaller builds though. About building a humvee: I actually already have a few different models, they will turn up in a group posting some time soon. But thanks for your suggestion, i am open to new ideas these days as i still lack inspiration :-)

Quoting Morthen P well, if i should show my complete collection, with sets and everything, and MOCS, then i would need a bigger camera lince, nice collection BTW. I like the way you stacked your sets and MOCS inside thoose boxes, looks very compact. I bet if you shake them alittle, then they would be way smaller all of a sudden, hehe,
Thanks :-) Yeah i dread the day i drop one of the large bins on the floor while moving it! :-D - My guesstimate is that when everything is completely dismantled it will take up about one third of the current space needed.

Quoting LukeClarenceVan The Revanchist Okay, good to know. Better that than a dark age. ;)
Indeed! :-D I am a bit stomped as to what to build next though. I need to find another 'this i've gotta build!'-object. Any ideas?

Quoting LukeClarenceVan The Revanchist Nice! But "stacked, packed and ready for storage"? I hope that you're not putting the LEGO away for too long.
Thanks :-) No not at all, it's just that i have a small apartment so when i am not building things the collection needs to occupy the smallest space possible. Apart from one more planned post coming up soon though, it might be a while before i post something new.
