Previous post - OKC Part 2 - in which we look close at the shelf on the right
Now, we look at one of the 2 'main' shelves. The picture below summarises what they look like when standing from afar. The arrangement has gone through many iterations, and this set of photos merely show the latest iteration. heh.
This is the top layer, where its mostly Japanese MIB stuff. The boxes go 60cm deep, so there are lots more boxes behind, but they cannot be seen. As explained in my previous post, I needed the shelves to be 60cm deep so that I can accommodate Fort Max in city mode - the result is a deep shelving space, but the downside is that things must be put behind and might not be seen.
This top layer shows - D-304: Hydra, D-305: Buster, D-309: Black Shadow, D-310: Blue Bacchus and C-326: Galaxy Shuttle. Also shows the very limited and rare MC Axis Model Kits (Arcee, Elita-One and Hot Rod)
This is the second layer. Also contains lots of MIB Japanese TFs (behind). In front are - lucky draw black Tracks, Goodbye Megatron giftset, D-307: Overlord (this is my near C-10, previously MISB, unused piece), D-308: Browning, diaclone Jeep (ie: Hound) and Generations Deluxe Lucky Draw God Primus.
This is the next few layers down. I previously had FM displayed in city mode and lots of SCFs populating it, but then I rearranged it! Now FM is in robot mode and in the middle of many glass panels. One layer shows my SCFs, the next shows the 1984 and 1985 Autobots.
Some close up shots of the SCFs - there are chase figures mixed in with regular figures. This shot shows-
front: chase crystal Hot Rod (Maz's favourite) and regular Hot Rod behind, Cerebros, Alpha Trion, Paradron Medic, back: diaclone coloured Ultra Magnus, chase battle damage Convoy, chase silver coated Convoy with Matrix (one of my favourite figures).
A clearer shot of diaclone coloured Ultra Magnus, chase battle damage Convoy, chase silver coated Convoy with Matrix (one of my favourite figures) and Dai Atlas.
Chase Convoy holding Megatron with rocket pack - my all time favourite SCF figure! yum!
Shot of the same 2 shelves at an angle.
Shot showing Fortress Maximus among small TFs.
Shot of my pre-rub 'bloated' Optimus Prime with Fortress Maximus in the background.
Misc 1984 and 1985 Autobots.
This is sort of the next 2 layers down. One features all 5 Dinobots, in robot and dinosaur mode. Another contains lots of Micromasters and minispies.
This is a shot at an angle. Notably the robot mode Swoop (diaclone) and Slag (red-faced Canadian version) are special to me.
SCF Convoy among the Dinobots - scale looks about right, no?
The Omnibots and the exclusive Japanese Headmaster heads - Shuffler, Lione, Trizor, Rodney, Kaku and Loafer. At the risk of sounding elitist, these are the genuine Takara made ones (ie: Shuffler was very difficult to obtain!).
Behind the MMs, there are the 1987 / 1988 Pretenders and 1988 Targetmasters. The plan is that these will be 'rotated forward' at a certain time.
Punch / Counterpunch.
This is the bottom layer, which I have custom sized so that it fits 2 Fortress Maximus boxes. Here we see the USA Fortress Maximus box and the C-114 Japanese Fortress Maximus box.
