The thing that I love about the Bionicle fandom is that every so often you stumble across something that is so remarkable that you spend a few minutes staring at it, trying to suppress the urge to drool. 

This is one such scenario.

This is really cool! :) I like how you sorted the Krana both by color and by Krana and Krana-Va. It's always cool to see all the different Krana displayed together! Thanks for posting!

This case looks amazing, the headings, arrangement of the Krana and the little card in the corner make the case feel like a display item in a museum or art gallery.

Very luxuriant. Almost feels like a museum display piece.

 

Why the additional purple Krana, though?

Fun fact: There are two shades of purple Krana, one is darker and one is lighter. In the shadow, both variations look the same, but the difference is obvious when seen in person or good lightning conditions.

Thank you guys so much! :D
I will actually have this displayed at a local Lego exhibit here in Sweden this fall, that's why I added the informational box in the corner to make it look even more displayable :)

And yes the purple krana were released in two shades!
Unfortunately I don't have the variant set completed yet as you have to buy random lots of them on bricklink and 'hope' to get the shades you need, because they are always listed as just "purple" which makes it a bit hard :P

Very interesting! I've been thinking about making a Krana display as such for some time now, but yours really takes the cake. How much do you think you spent on the frame? (sans the Krana). I'd almost be interested in replicating it.

This is a beautiful piece Martin, great job! It's no secret I have a real thing for custom display pieces and this is far and away one of the nicest I've ever seen! I've been in love with my own krana display since it's completion but I think yours tops it with the labels and encasing frame. Great job and I'll see what I can do about those last few krana you need but am starting a new job today so am likely to be busy for a little while :P Good luck finding the other bits you need and enjoy the event!

This is very, very nice. I'm thoroughly impressed! Nice displays are in short supply these days. People used to have fun with them years ago when collectibles were more popular but I haven't seen a good one in ages.

 

Well done!

The IKEA Ribba frame is about 18USD, and I think I spent about the same amount on the Lego pieces for it including the shipping :)

The black background paper was only a few dollars I think and the certificate holder was just something I had laying around, as I also collect trading cards. The rest are just standard supplies like paper and glue.

 

I do have to mention that you need to have someone helping you when doing this though,

I would never be able to build it if I didn't have some help to discuss the measuring and most importantly, someone beeing able to hold rulers etc when you do the gluing :D

 

Anyhow, I guess the total cost for this would be something like 40USD or less? :)
