It is a Chima 2014 set display that my local store did not need/want, so they gave it to me.

 

...It feels weird being the only LEGO collector in my community...

I'm surprised that they just gave that away. I wouldn't expect any store to do that. But it is really cool that this one did. 

 

And as others have already said, this is awesome. :)

One question is the display figure hot glued/hobby glued like most stores do? Many stores do it to keep figures from falling over but i've always hate how it looks on the display.

Yes, it is glued in such a way that I cannot unglue it without potentially damaging the pieces. I've also noticed that it's been glued quite cleverly into place, the only noticeable residue is on the weapon and under the armor shells.

 

So all I have to go around saying is, "do you need this display case? I could use it for Bag End."

Most of the time, large chain stores like Wal-Mart or Target will give them to their employees when they're finished with them, or they will just throw them out. Being the only LEGO collector in my community, it was easy to obtain displays like this. But you'll probably need some luck to get one of these (a display) from a Wal-Mart or Target

The large, multi-set displays, must be sent back to LEGO for recycling, lest the store pay for them. So major stores are probably out of the question, at least here in the States.

 Yeah, most major stores won't even let you suggest giving the displays out to the general public. I tried when I was 8 or nine and asked if they'd let me have a Mistika display.
 

 

It's so beautiful. :D

To protect the set from sticky fingers and those who like to steal pieces from LEGO sets.

Do you think Bionicle will return in 2015?

 

EDIT: Lime, don't do this here. If you do, take it to PM.

Yo, sorry, but I can't talk freely about it here.

Eventually, I might be able to talk freely about it.

Sorry again that I can't talk about this freely here.

Underneath most displays, there's a sticker that says "Not to be sold to third parties", so the stores are faced with a choice: Throw them in the trash, or give them to an employee or random customer that happens to ask about it.
