    Hmmm, that would be a mistake. I didn't even know that it turns around.
    Thanks :thumb

    Wow. I'm only looking at the thumbnails now, and i must say I'm impressed. Very much so. That Unicron/Primus display is beautiful all by itself!

    Have to take a closer look at the high res images tomorrow morning.... :thumb

    I got it from www.showcasedesigns.biz, a company that I highly recommend for the quality of their products, their absolutely excellent customer service (I bugged the lady numerous times and she was extremely helpful), and their very reasonable prices. And no, they didn't pay me to say any of that, I just really liked dealing w/ them.

    I spent way too many hours painting this thing (I asked them to leave it unfinished so I could paint it) and putting the figures into it (a solid week to be honest). The dimensions in case anyone is interested are 5'w x 6'h x 16''d, a pretty good sized cabinet.

    There are many many new figures in there that I couldn't fit into my old cabinets, but unfortunately I still cannot fit everything. I completed '84-'86 of G1 in the last year. I did complete Beast Wars, Robots in Disguise and the WST as well. I need to get a count of how many I did manage to fit in there, but I would say I am missing at least 150 out of the 597 that are in my collection. Anyway, this was/is the fruit of my labor and my $$$.

    Thanks for the comments guys.

    Comparison shots of my Wheeljack progression.

    [​IMG]

    On the left is the first one I had, and have had for the longest. It is missing both spoilers, one of the pegs for the spoilers is broken off, both wings are missing, both rockets and launchers are missing, the paint is chipped on the front, it is dirty and the stickers are all peeling off.

    (One time a friend came over and was scared to touch anything on the G1 shelves, but just grabbed Wheeljack since he "looks like he is in really bad shape.")

    The middle one is the replacement I got about a month or two ago. It has one spoiler, both wings and one rocket and launcher. The front has slight chipping, it is slightly yellowed and the normal stickers are coming off, but overall is in really good shape.

    The right one is my brand new, pristine Wheeljack. It is absolutely white, came w/ mostly unapplied stickers (which I put on), all the accessories and paperwork, and no chipping whatsoever. I am very pleased w/ this one. It looks perfect and now Wheeljack is one of the jewels of my collection instead of being a throwaway.

    You really have to see these in person to appreciate the progression, but it is impressive. They go from yellowed and beat up on the one extreme, to slightly discolored in the middle and in pretty good shape, to absolutely pristine on the other extreme. I think it is cool to see what kind of shape the same toy can be in after 20 yrs.

    I love upgrading to better figures, although I don't see that happening again w/ Wheeljack. This one is just about perfect.
