    Apparently, if I don't, some people become too hostile. LOL

    Thanks! It's actually two Metod corner units, one on top of the other. I already had the Billy bookcase with doors (on the right) and this corner unit goes fairly well, standing just a couple of inches proud. You get two glass shelves with each Metod but I've ended up only using one in each. At some point I may get another Billy to go on the left.

    Unicron fits inside snuggly with the full display stand (I had to pop off one set of wings to get him inside, then reattach once he was in, ship-in-a-bottle style!). I don't think planet mode will fit... at least not without maybe removing some protrusions from the ring, and even then you'd have to build the unit around it because the circumference is larger than the opening to the unit!

    Again, I suggest ignoring that individual. He doesn't want to accept that even a large company like Hasbro has its reasons for utilizing a direct to consumer crowdfunding campaign on certain items.

    looks great! Those Billy's line up perfectly with your metod in height. Why not put unicron on the higher shelves?! It's a centrepiece! :)  the fact that you can get him in there completely and show him head to toe is great! I had to make concessions with my setup as you'll see. The glass has a break near the legs.

    The circumference of the rings in planet mode is 29", and it stands 34" tall with the stand. Might fit if you're interested.

    while I wanted planet mode for him it just wasn't possible with the besta. Here's how it ended up with me.

    What is the item number for the metod? It shows a vent when you type that into the IKEA app.

    Looks pretty good! :thumb 
    Planet mode really is ginormous; I love it but displaying it is another thing entirely! Maybe if someone comes out with a kit to assemble the kibble into a separate planet I'll give it a go, but for now he's staying in bot mode.

    Looks like it’s only over in Europe and not the states.

    I’m BBTS late to seeing this. That’s an awesome display, giving me some ideas. What kind of shelves are those and how deep are they.

    Thanks! It's all from my local Menards home improvement store, the shelves are pre-finished and come in 8" and 12" depths and 2/3/4-foot lengths. The wall rails screw to the wall studs and the 8" and 12" shelf brackets plug into those. Stuff like this should be available at any big-box home improvement store.

    Probably meant to be pronounced sek-shun, but sure fits in the Transformers universe if pronounced sekt-tee-on
