Now if only Hasbro would make some more decent figures for you to fill it out with... :P

I didn't get what you meant until I went to the trouble of putting up the shelf. Now that I see 'em, I definitely want better versions. (And I discovered my R3PO is AWOL.)

Here is the shelf on the wall...







I filled it in with the big accessories for now, but my "ultimate" list of figures will require most of those pieces to disappear...

The question was asked whether I have "pegged" my displays...I have not. While I plan to set 'em and forget 'em, I appreciate the ability to move things around too much to put dedicated pegs on there. I loved my ultaramas back in the day, but I was always frustrated by the spacing choices that were out of my control.

Thanks for all the great feedback. Looks like next on my plate is an Alliance shelf. Watch for it soon.

Re: Muftak's Shelf Displays--Imperial Upgrades

Hey folks.

I was comissioned to build a version of my Imperial Display, and took the opportunity to add in some of the upgrades I will eventually be adding to my own.



I added deck grates (made from wonderful plastic canvas) in the crew pit area:



I changed up the computer at the back for this one as well, in the classic ANH colors this time...



As before, the computer is completely removable, though this time I took care to make it actually more like a stand-alone accessory:



And the display without the computer in the back looks like this...



As always, thanks for looking.

Last two displays are amazing. Really great work. You found a great niche in the market.

Home One Shelf Display
« Reply #35 on: July 12, 2008, 01:10 PM »
Hey guys. I've finished another one. A little bit longer than I was expecting to take, I had a heckuva spring with my wife in the hospital and all sorts of work stuff, but I have completed my Home One Shelf.




A big part of the slow down in work here for me was due to trying to figure out how to build the step-ups. I seriously redid the three levels four times before settling on this configuration (which of course is almost exactly the same as my first version.) That got me burned out on this thing for long stretches of time, and I think it's more of an abandoned project than a finished one, (some areas are not as good as I'd like) but so be it.



I have to say I really enjoyed the back wall and all that panel work.





Once again it is designed to hold another, slimmer shelf above, this time thru the jutting doorways.



I did more sticker design on this one than I've done since the Death Star. I'm pretty pleased with the results of the big wall terminals in particular.



Look for updates more frequently, as I'm gonna tackle some of the smaller shelves for the second tiers of these things, and I totally expect those to go much quicker. I've got one more big one to do, but as it is going to be EU themed I haven't quite decided what the motif will be.

Thanks as always for looking!

Wow!  Fantastic work on all of these.  Hope the family is doing well.

Yavin IV Shelf
« Reply #37 on: August 17, 2008, 10:47 AM »
Thanks Matt. Everything has been settled down for the summer, so hopefully the drama is behind us.

I finished up the first of my "second-tier" displays this weekend, a home for my Yavin IV figures.



I was excited to do the Death Star plans scene because it was the first scene I thought of when I decided to do these shelves. Somehow that wall was iconic Star Wars backdrop for me. The screen is a custom-made image.



The medal scene was pretty obvious as far as what I needed to have here, too. I plotted the spacing on the essential characters that go here...and cheated size on the steps. The middle one is just wide enough for Luke and Han to stand on, the rest are way too skinny to be used.



For the last third of the thing, I left a pretty open area. Soon it will probalby be where the transport sled is parked (I can't wait!) but for now I made a tactical table to fill it, just for the fun of it. It's underscaled to fit, but I had a lot of fun making the screen.



AS I said, this is a second-tier, so it's a lot more shallow overall. It is designed to sit on top of the Home I shelf I already built. I think they work well together.



That's it for now. More to come soon.

Thanks for looking!

Those home-made decals may be the single best thing of these perfect displays!
