    He'll stand fine without the stand if space is an issue? Not that there's really anywhere to fall either inside a cabinet. Is it safe to assume that hell be stood in the bottom? I wouldnt think a glass shelf would take the weight.

    Are you sure it can fit the width of his wings? The interior width of that cabinet is 30", and my Unicron measures 39" wide in the pose below (including the spikes on the wings). You could pose his arms more down at his sides to reduce the width somewhat, but I'm not sure if you can get it down under 30".

    I hadn't thought about how much not having him at attention would add. Hm, might need to go back to the drawing board for him

    That's a very nice display, would you please post more of your display? I want to see how you placed the autobots. Thanks.

    Thanks guys. Here's a couple more pics.

    I have the '86 Autobots on a shelf "floating" away from the wall on longer brackets, so Unicron's wing can fit behind it:

    Here's the whole display:

    That’s breathtaking. So much care and thought went into making this display, and it really shows.

    Thanks! I take photos of different figures often enough that I just dust them off when I have them down for shoots. That seems to be a good enough routine to keep them looking presentable. If I notice one on the shelf looking particularly grungy, I'll take care of it.

    Thank you! Yep, this is just the latest iteration, things have evolved as I've gotten more figures and had different ideas on how to arrange them. The shelves are really easy to take down and reconfigure. Fitting Unicron (in place of the old 2010 version) took a major overhaul!

    It's a really funky ceiling fan! It's plastic but does a pretty good job of looking like bent wood.

    Amazing display, but it must be a dusting nightmare.

    Anybody looked into hanging Unicron from the ceiling (in either planet mode or robot mode)? Just wondering if this is feasible without damaging the figure....

    Well, couldn't get the rudsta shelf from ikea but did get the milsbo shelf for a bit more, and it's a bit longer. Can't use the stand, but it works really well for unicron

    Your display looks absolutely epic....especially like the right balance you've struck between the of number of figures and making it too busy.

    But that setup is a gust of wind, pet or mild tremor away from tears...

    And dusting.
