There’s nothing better than setting up a display for your collection and then tearing it down to do all over again, right? Well, these tiny spacemen and aliens have inhabited the prime real estate of my vintage TV cabinet for too long, so it’s time to shove them out the airlock and make way for a new display. But before they go, I had to snap a few pictures to remember them in all their glory.
A good display has layers that you can get lost in as you visually walk through it, and this setup has plenty of fun alleys to meander through. I’ve enjoyed staring at these toys for a while, but it’s time for a change.
I have accumulated hundreds of plastic spacemen, so I had to selectively choose a few favorites for this set up. One day, maybe I’ll figure out a way to display all those figures in one huge display, but that’s a project I’ve been pondering for years, and still haven’t come up with a good solution.
I love mixing up items in my collections — books, toys, games, movies — throw it all together and see what happens.
While it’s a little sad to see this display come down, I’m excited about putting together a Halloween-themed display, and soon after that it will be Christmas!
