    For a while I have been hunting down the IGear Teletraan set with no luck. So I finally gave up. I did however remember seeing a Printable Ark set, and I ventured to find it. Fortunately you guys don't have to look much, here is the link:

    Teletraan-I / Ark / Nemesis Display Panels! - TFormers Community

    I was going to make Teletraan, but I didn't have the room on my shelf for it. So instead I decided to wallpaper the shelf and get foam board for the backing and tack that in to the back of the shelf unit and wallpaper that as well.

    Here are the results (I plan on taking better pics when I have the chance, right now these are a bit rushed)

    First pic shows the before picture. If you notice there is no backing to the shelf and the room is painted a shitty baby blue color (haven't changed it since I moved here cause it is a crappy office space now). So it annoyed me a lot:

    Now here is the finished product with the ark set panels found in the link above:

    Hopefully I can get a good pic of this to fully appreciate it. I think it is a good way to display your shelf.

    They actually look even better in person. I am going to try to see if I could fit teletraan in there. He almost has to be here.

    I wonder... if one was doing different shelves devoted to different series, what would be the best suggestions for doing a similar backing to non-G1 shelves, like Cybertron, Animated, or Prime? Because this is really awesome, and I'd like to use it, but I'd feel my other toys are left out. XD

    So just print out those images. If you have no printer, go to Costco, I think it is like $1.50 per 8"x10" segment. This one here was 11 of those, but I printed them out at home.

    They also have different sizes you can print in at Costco. I would just recommend combining the downloaded panels in a paint program so the images don't get stretched if you are going to do one long piece.

    Then you can get some doubleside tape ($5.00) and then go to town.

    I had to get a backing for my shelf. That was just $7.50. And i used thumb tacks to put the backing into the wood. That was another $2.00.

    So you can pretty much do this to your shelf for about $25.00 a shelf. Cheaper if you print it out at home yourself. I should have done Costco though, cause I burnt through all my ink on this project.
