    I recently bought a MP-4, and MP-5 and soon realized I had no where to display them. So I made a set of displays that incorporate speaker stands that would replace my old floor standing ones. I wasn't sure if I should put this in the Non-TF mods, since its not actually a modded TF, but it it TF related, so here it is.

    The stands are made from 1"x.120" mild steel round tubing, 2"x2" .120" angle iron, and .120" flat stock. The acrylic pieces are a set of neon-lit signs I bought on ebay a few years ago.

    Really nice display. The blue light for Prime and the red light for Megs might make more sense though.

    I don't know about that. Autobots had a red symbol in my heyday (G1) and Decepticons had purple.

    Thanks, but I wanted it to reflect the faction symbol colors, Red for Autobot, and Purple for Decepticon, but blue was the closest I could get.:(

    Badass. Your colors are proper; red is usually the friendly good guy robot. Prime is red, Autobadge is red, so why not his spotlight? Megatron always makes people sad. Blue is a good color for that. Win.

    I love this! The Masterpiece figures, these two in particular, deserve awesome display stands.
