    I've got this really narrow display case hanging on a strip of wall next to my bed and I've been gathering Primes to display in there, all in truck modes. Thusfar it holds Titanium War Within Prime, Titanium Rodimus Prime, and both THS Primes. To give you an indication of the size the Titaniums fit with a bit room to spare and I need to unhook the back part of THS-01 Prime to compress it just a tiny bit and make it fit. You don't really see that in practice though unless you look closely. THS-02 is in there without the trailer. The inside of the display case measures 142 mm or 5.6 inch exactly.

    Now I'm looking for the right Movie prime to fit in there as well. I've got my eye on the FAB version, but I think it's a tad too big.

    As far as the movie line goes if you think the fab is too big there is always the legends class. Or maybe a gravity bot?

    Yeah, I noticed the Legends Movie 2 Prime looks really good. And I think I can get it together with the Legends Animated Prime and put them both on a single shelf.

    While the size seems okay I do like it better if the could transform. I can adjust the shelves. So if I ever decide to show them in robot mode I'd rather have something more than an overturned truck.

    It's nice, but I don't like Stratosphere (nor do I have room for the plane anywhere in my house).

    Looks like I'll go with the Legends version.

    Well if you could fit a Titanium WW Prime on the thin strip I guess Takara's TS-01 Trans-Scanning Optimus Prime should fit the bill nicely.

    Imho it fits in better with your current display compared to Legends/FABs/RPMs.
