    In the spirit of the movies 30th anniversary and newly released DVD/Blu-ray editions out now, I thought I'd share this project I did last year; a permanent diorama on the top half of my wardrobe display using all the CHUG (and some 3P's) movie cast (missing Blaster - still looking for a Soundmixer). I have a Blue-ish LED at the roof of the wardrobe to cast a spotlight on the Roddy's. I'll probably update it with the new Tak LG's once Wheelie comes through, but till then enjoy fellow fans.

    Cool setup. I especially love those backgrounds. I also like that you use Legends Meg, and Warp in the background of Galvs, Cyc, and Scourge. Amusingly, halfway through the pics, I realized I was quietly whistling part of the movie's score. I think it was the one that went with "Blurr, get the Dinobots in the shuttle". For some reason, I thought of that line when looking at Blurr.

    Sweet setup! Really impressed with the lighting.

    Sometimes, I dislike the usage of having printed out backgrounds, as they can take too much attention away from the figures, especially if they contain a lot of busy details. But here, they mesh together beautifully.

    Any interest in titan returns/uw Wheelie? He would fit well here, in place of the gdo version.

    Truly epic pics! Bravo, sir! Reminds me that I'd really like to get more Junkions and Sweeps so I can do something like that.

    My only thing is, didn't Thundercracker become Scourge? Either way, these are all awesome.
