That's one amazing display and now I can see the size of your cabinet, it's huge!
Such an impressive piece and I'm looking forward to seeing it populated with all the figures, it really is going to look awesome
Also you should try to fit the skiff in there if you have one, I bet that would make quite a nice diorama with the two of them.

I knew it was big but it fills that cabinet, I thought that there would be more room.
Agree with Ian that it looks great and will be even better when full of figures, looking forward to seeing pictures.
I assume that your not fitting any lighting?
Yes, I do have a pair of the new skiffs on order, and yes the intention is to display them, with figures, in the same cabinet as the Khetanna. However, as stated above, that particular cabinet was not built with the Khetanna in mind. It was actually just for those other 6" figures that you see in it - including the Matrix Chateau set - as originally I did not want to overlap the Family Guy, Buffy and Angel figures (the lower third of the cabinet was originally only to have shelving over three-quarters of its width, allowing room for the Matrix set on the right-hand side).
However, when the Khetanna was announced, I realised it would fit in the cabinet if I ruthlessly compressed the other figures, and hence that is what I did. The problem though has always been that the exact dimensions of the Khetanna were slightly blurred for me due to the sails extending so much higher and wider than the rest of the craft. I was confident the thing would fit in the cabinet, but I was hoping to also fit a pair of skiffs in as well. However, now that the barge is in there, sadly there is no room for a skiff to be displayed along side the barge as it appeared at the Sarlacc pit in Return of the Jedi. But, if I remove the Matrix set and shift the barge to the right, there should be room to display 2 skiffs in front of it, in a sort-of recreation of how they appeared as they flew on their way to the Sarlacc in ROTJ. At least one of them will probably be suspended from the shelf above, although I am tempted to suspend both at different heights
Having said all of that, if the two skiffs and Khetanna either won't all fit, or if they do but look too cramped, I do have a backup option of shifting a lot more stuff around and displaying them in a completely different cabinet that's a bit wider and deeper.
As for populating it with figures, that will probably be done next weekend as I have other commitments this weekend, but once it's done I will post more (and better!) photos right here.
Oh, and no, I currently have no plans for lighting, but in the future... who knows!
