    Just finished this 7.5 foot metroplex/shelving unit. i haven't had a chance to fill it up yet though. the front panels are all removable. i had a lot of fun making it.

    yea, mostly that dense press board stuff used in book shelves etc. so its crazy heavy. i used 2x12's down the center and across the top to re-enforce the boxes. all the doors are plastic so they're lighter.

    Does it transform? Just kidding.

    That's awesome!!! Any chance of a Unicron one to face him on the opposite side? You could put your autobots on 'Plex and the cons on Unicron.

    My thoughts exactly! And the shape works perfectly. A shelf set that is an in-scale Metroplex!

    I've just spent 15 minutes staring at the pictures of this thing... It's completely & outstandingly awesome!! Is it free standing, or do you have it mounted to the wall?? Secondly, did you save the plans so you can sell a set to the rest of us??

    Seriously though, that is cool!!
