    Falcon and AT-TE - how will you display yours?

    A grand ol' excuse for me to jabber on about how I'm going to have mine displayed.

    Well, I expect the Falcon is going to be so big as to dominate the entirety of one of my big deep shelves. I think my jedi council may end up being a casualty. Ideally I could have it in the open and on a table like some will do but I don't have that space - so my modes of display will be limited.

    I'm going to keep it with open top, raised canopy and boarding ramp lowered so that all features and figures can be seen and demonstrated. So I'm going to need one of my vertically high shelves. I doubt I'll be able to incorporate it into any existing diorama such as Echo base since to do so would be to evict snowspeeders. Its likely then that I'll still be using POTF2 there.

    The BMF will be displayed purely on its own merits in this case, although I'll try to fit some contextable figures around it and at the boarding ramp to either create a limited Death Star hangar display, Docking bay 94 or Yavin base. (stormtroopers, imperial scanning troopers, ANH Vader, imp.officer/Jabba, Han&Chewie, Boba fett, Greedos/Han&Chewie with 'reward' cargo and X-wing Luke)


    For the interior my plan is to work in as many different film scenes at once that I can with exception of ROTJ as there was really only one part of the Falcon seen in ROTJ, the cockpit, and I've already designated that for ESB:

    Cockpit - Smuggler Lando and Chewie, since I have no other context for smuggler lando it makes sense to use the cockpit for the ESB closing scene

    Main hold - ANH dejarik scene and all relevant characters

    corridor - ANH smuggler compartment scene&relevant characters

    medical bay - ESB scene with a saga bespin Luke and Bespin escape Leia

    The problem with my display is that unless I have it mounted on a rotatable platform I won't be able to see the Falcon from all angles and I'll have to take it off the shelf anytime I want to look at everything or set the ship up in an alternative, non-permanent diorama - the kind of multi-ship diorama I sometimes do when I have the time that takes up the floor of my bedroom - and must therefore be dismantled before a day is out. I do love my hangar bays.



    As for the AT-TE....if I buy it...This will probably be squashed in somewhere, a very compacted diorama - so compacted it won't be worth calling a diorama - more like an assemblage of Geonosis contexted figures&vehicles in no particular battle set-up, likewise to be taken down occasionally to be set up in one of my temporary floor dioramas. But I certainly have a number of excess AOTC clones to fill it with, figures I otherwise don't know what to do with.

    And thats me. What about everyone else?

    thinking of putting an EU version of Order 66 with the AT-TE, or perhaps the blast of Obi Wan with Boga , Kenobi, Cody and a few clones. I have a mini holo emperor for Cody.

    as far as the Falcon, I think I might just display as you first see it with Luke, Obi Wan, Han, Chewie, Threepio and R2 "What a piece of Junk." or maybe with the stormtroopers "Stop that Ship Blast Him"
    Looking for CW 2010 Sidious and TX-20...if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated. thanks

    I have an old, round kitchen table that has just been used to store empty boxes for the last couple years. They're microwave and TV boxes so they're pretty big, but I'll dump them all since I dont' use them and dedicate the tabletop to the BMF Falcon. I don't have any big plans for dioramas but will probably dedicate the entire vessel to recreating the Mos Eisley Hangar Bay if anything.

    I don't have any clear plans for the AT-TE as of yet.

    I don't know... I'll have to see the Falcon first, but I suspect that if I display it anywhere for now, I'll have to hang it from the ceiling.

    I currently don't have much of anything on display, but these pieces will need to be displayed well.

    I'll likely have the AT-TE in a Geonosis set-up along with most of the other Republic and Separatist vehicles. I bought several more AOTC Clones last year (and got one today, actually), so they will stand around it and look awesome. I really don't think I'll get more than one AT-TE due to both the cost and size.

    The only Falcon I used in my diorama set-up at my old house was for Mos Eisley; well, it was on the ANH shelf and Han, Jabba, Boba Fett, and poncho Luke were nearby. But like some others, I would like to do the "what a piece of junk" scene. I'll likely keep it closed while it's displayed. However, due to its size, I don't even know if it will fit on one of my shelves. That will be interesting to see but I'll cross that bridge when I come to it. Maybe I'll get a cheap end table to put it on.

    I plan on doing this, although at this point I'm not sure which ones I will do.

    The AT-TE I plan on cramming as many clones into it as I can.

    I already have shelf room for the AT-TE. By the time they both come out, I should have things arranged enough to have space for the Falcon too. Not quite sure which figures I'm going to use yet for each.

    I have pretty much the same thing in mind. I plan on using several of the ridiculously large number of Saga Legends Sandtroopers I've picked up over the last year or so to make it scene-specific for the "Stop that ship! Blast 'em!" sequence, with Han caught by surprise on the Falcon's ramp.

    I've got no space and no idea what to do with it but it's one item my partner actually likes so i've not got a fight on my hands over having it out on display. I'd kinda like to have it on the wall at an angle like it was stuck to the side of the ISD. got a spot in my living room where there's a horrible picture. guess i'd just make a couple of brackets to hold it in place and have it on the wall above the tv.

    or i might just stand it on end next to my bed or hang it in the stairwell with a big wing tie fighter on its tail.

    i just don't know.
