I have it on display down stairs in our house and many people do comment on it and it's one of the only sets my wife says she's happy to have in the house.
Mine has been on display in my living room for almost 6 years now.
And I'm suffocating the cast of Cars. They were already dead when I got them.
It's either that, or suspended in some odd liquid in a jar? Frankly, I'd be fine with either.
I keep my roller coaster opposite my UCS Falcon on display and I'm trying to squeeze in the Hogwarts that's just been freshly built onto my desk. All things considered, probably 80% of Lego models over £100 in recent years have been display worthy. I even have my AT-M6 standing next to my 2014 version AT-AT just to remind me how good the original is in comparison.
Of course, I haven't yet built by UCS Falcon or the coffee table with Docking Bay 327, so my opinion might change once I do.
I'm a self-proclaimed Pixar/Disney nerd. WALL-E was the set that brought me out of my dark ages. It seems fitting to have a key place in my display. It always draws attention from kids and adults alike.
Although I LOVE my pirate ships, so IMO you can't really go wrong with those either. The Imperial Flagship and Silent Mary are the 2 best stand alone ships IMO (even better than the BSB or SES).
It's safely packed away at the moment, but it would have to be #6970 Beta I Command Base.
Still my favourite set of all time. :-)
Runner ups would be the #10188 Deathstar or #493 Command Center
But if I really had to choose one and only one, then it wouldn't be my childhood favourite #6980 which is still a great set in my opinion but isn't really a great display piece. Neither would it be #76031 which my wife bought me as a joke but actually served to bring me out of my dark age. For me there can only be one set above all others and that is the first set I had that went on permanent display and that is #75060 which is the epitome of a great display piece. I now have many sets on permanent display but the Slave I was the first set I couldn't bring myself to disassemble, usually sets go on some surface in the house then after a week or so I decide to break it down but Slave I really is an ultimate build. It is not however my only Star Wars UCS but it is the only one still built...
All Bricklink Projects and only two based on actual sets.
My custom #4000025
#10174 (which is currently being used a a pretty nifty hat stand).
And Mortesv's Blockade Runner.
I don't think I could choose between any of them as the time and effort that went into building them makes them all the more special to me.
The UCS Falcon would probably be quite high up on my list as a great display piece but due to the sheer size of it, the boss wouldn't put up with it out on display for too long. (The DS2 lasted two weeks before it was deemed to be 'In the bloody way').
Detective’s Office probably, with a close runner up of the Emerald Knight Steam Train.
The Tower of Orthanc is another contender.
Here's my motorised Wall-E out in the open, distracted by someone...
