    I like what I've seen, but have yet to buy. I have a tall shelf so I'd need a bunch of these to actually cover the wall behind them since I have Devastator on the shelf and the Mega Action Scorponok. I hope they come up with something for 1/12 Star Wars figures though, I'd def buy something for them.

    The lines on the cardboard (corrugation) are just too distracting for me. It looks cheap, as if printed with an inkjet printer. If I had the images, I could do better with a color laser and 28lb paper.

    I feel like the Shockwave in that pic doesn't have his head fully pulled out from his chest; it's sunken more than normal.

    If by "Headquarters" it means the Decepticon underwater base, that is not the same as the BW retconned "Nemesis".

    I think I want to buy these and use as a template for polystyrene sheets so I can recreate the panels in 3D with plastic. Looks good as is though.

    Just got this set not too long ago from TF Source. Haven't put it together yet but I do have and set up the Ark set for my MP Autobots display shelves and they look great. Thinking of picking up more if theses sets using the discount code.

    Amazing shots, as always, Tony! :thumb 

    I love that WfC/FoC Megatron shot at the console! :D  Makes me wonder if I even want/need an MP Megs!

    You know what I'd like to see with these? An actual display space. I'm a bit confused as to where to put these sets. I assume they're meant to line an entire bookshelf or something... ? So, in theory, you get a few diorama sets and make each shelf a different theme (i.e. Autobot base, Decepticon base, moon, etc.)?

    You could do that. They are combinable up to 6 panels, 10 feet wide. Or you can use only 2 or 3 at a time, depending on space.

    They are also doing Display Packs which are designed to fit in Deltofs. And there are Ark / Nemesis versions coming in that size too:

    EXTREME-SETS - DIORAMA - POP-UP - PRINTOUT

    Good luck with Photoshop cleanup. Those lines will be hell to remove. :(
