    Thanks! I decided on nail polish display cases as a good solution:

    I've mentioned these before, but there's a company called Fontline Gaming that makes a great variety of RPG gaming mats.

    They come in 6'x4', 4'x4', and 3'x3'. They have spaceship (internal), space (star field), city, desert, etc, etc.. many different themes.

    They are a little pricey, but I bring them up again because they're having a 25% off holiday sale right now!

    Gaming Mats

    So a $75 6'x4' mat is currently only $56 + tax/shipping. If you don't have a lot of room, a 3'x3' is only $33 + t/s.

    I just ordered a 6'x4' City mat and I plan on using it as the base for my legends scale collection. Put Metroplex on one end, Trypticon on the other, and a whole bunch of awesome tiny transformers in between them. DX9 Hulkie vs DX9 Dinobots, MakeToys Apollo laying the smack down, etc etc... it's gonna be awesome.

    I picked up my mat today. This thing is freaking amazing and is PERFECT for legends scale:

    Now I just need a 6' x 4' table to lay out the entire thing...

    Not sure if this is best for a display or a diorama thread, but here goes.

    I had the idea of maybe printing out enlarged screen-shots from the shows to use as backers in displays, and then arranging the actual figures on the shelves to match the scene on the background. Not sure if frontlighting or backlighting would work best.

    This then made me think: what are the most iconic scenes from the shows/movies that we would want to simulate like this? Maybe a good idea for another thread in itself.

    I want g1 toys and the respective masterpieces. I'd like to display the g1 figures in front of their mp counterparts, but how can I afford to do that?

    First step is to get married to an understanding partner. You will need access to multiple incomes and the ability to access them.
