    Hi Guys.

    Does anyone here store their Max's inside detolfs?
    I'm in the midst of selling my house so my collection is in storage :( 
    and i've been designing plans for my new toy room and i've been considering having custom PVC cases made for my 3 max's but while i was out today at ikea, they had Detolfs on sale at almost half price. (australia)

    So i bought 4 :)  as i know that they physically fit inside.

    While i wait a couple of months till i'm in my new place, i need to know how well a maximus fits inside a detolf given the removal of one shelf.

    Pictures would be greatly appreciated as my mind is going crazy.

    My Grand maximus has the god sword so i need to know if he can hold it inside also. Also can guns be held and pointed with a bent arm?
    Hip guns extended atleast?

    Thanks guys

    Linton

    I asked my friend the same thing, but he said he rarely has the blinds opened.

    I just checked ikea.com to see what these went for online. $59.99, not too bad.

    Until I checked the shipping. $275 for shipping?? Damn!!

    take it from me, they are HEAVY!!!!. Seriously it is not something you want to move by yourself. When it is assembled it is easier to handle. But when you buy it from ikea and move it into your car, it is really really big and heavy.

    Sounds familiar. My wife was with me when we bought them, but SOMEHOW... I ended up loading 4 of these into our car on my own.

    Fortunately, she did help take them upstairs once we got home.

    Thank you for the nice comments, guys. Solscud007 came by over the holidays and had a really nice camera -- he can make anything look good!

    It's not that I don't post pictures, it's just that I never think the collection's ready. Anyone know what I mean? There's always things coming, displays I want to assemble -- it never truly ends.

    Megamus, the smaller ships are from DST/Art Asylum, while the large one is the Master Replica version. They're all very nicely made, and worthwhile to pursue if you don't already have them.
