    ^^ Looks totally awesome and is incredible to see, but for me as a figure display it's a bit of a waste of very valuable display space. The uppermost and lowermost portions - like more than 12" at the top and the bottom - are just empty space that you only ever saw in a couple of very brief establishing shots in the movie, and to me it diminishes the figures to ants (the backdrop overwhelms them.)

    I wouldn't have had them build the area below the floor and would have created a horizontal cut-off line (maybe just with a flat strip of black) about four inches above the top of the throne, matched at the floor line, to "frame" the dio to the way it looks in the movie.

    It would still have that awesome hugeness and still be in correct 1/6 scale (without any Kenner-style scale distortions,) but would focus on the figures better and be something you could put in an expanded Besta. The whole thing would only be 18"-24" tall and about 4' wide instead of the huge 4' diameter circle.

    Lovely room! Do you have a tutorial to the ceiling starfield?

    Ha. Not my room. I just found it online. Although I've seen stuff for ceiling mods like this. Just google and see what you can find.

    It's easy to do. You can buy the optic kits. Cheap ones are on ebay, expensive ones (better quality) from specialized suppliers. Then you simply mount a board to the ceiling - painted black, of course - with various sizes of holes for the different cable thicknesses. Hot glue gun the back of each cable or use a fixing plug that some of the kits come with. Some fiber optic projectors come with a twinkle effect too.

    Oooh, twinkle effect. Nice! And I'd be OCD enough to make sure the stars are blue-ish like in the films, not white.

    The projectors use colour-changing LEDS. You can have them whatever colour you want.
