    What shelving unit to use? (complete NA MVS in shock boxes)

    Working on a near complete NA +2 MVS collection and looking to buy one shelves unit that would display a complete set. Any recommendations? Actual wall space has become an issue so height is a bonus. Cheers.

    Dr Docking has a variety of shelving technologies available, they're the best they really get it up there.

    Lachlan is correct, Dr. Dockings Jelqing units are perfect. They are similar to the regular units only slightly longer.

    The instructions are quite good too, handy little thing to have included.

    I don't know about you but when you're erect and staring at all of your gaming stuff it's a magical experience.

    I really like the Vitsoe shelving system designed by Dieter Rams of Braun fame. Very modular, it's been in production since the 60's and will be into the future. Different depths (and widths) of shelving available and it screws into the wall or can be attached to posts that compress between the ceiling and floor. Keeps your room/space feeling open, blends into the wall, and looks great with Neo games on it. Good luck with choosing a shelving system... it's a tough choice but is super important, saggy wooden shelves don't do justice to the Neo Geo!

    I'm surprised there aren't graded shelving units for storing ones game collection.

    Anyone who stores their collection on any shelf graded below a 9.8 isn't a real collector.

    See, can you imagine the market for shit like that.

    Have your graded shelving unit in the back ground of your youtube videos!

    Send me at least 100 photos of your shelving unit in good lighting and I'll issue an official grade and send you a certificate via email that you can print out, frame and display on your shelving, to show how good your shelving is. You can't display your collection without a display shelf, and you can be a serious collector with just any shelves, get yours graded today.

    No one is going to pay to see your complete Apple Pippin collection if it's on ungraded shelves. Just saying.

    We got a baller here. Vitsoe 606 is $$$$$, but it is very nice. All of Dieter Rams' stuff are great.

    Nice to know there is another Rams fan on here... it's pricey on one hand, but also holds it's value over time (much like the Neo). The metal shelving is far more affordable than those 36" cabinets but we can't have sun-fading can we!
