    Exclusive 13 Inch Megatrope

    Size isn't always everything in life, but sometimes it is. Megatropes are 13 inches on a side where Novatropes are 5.5 inches. This piece is massive, heavy, and incredibly over-engineered. Glossy black acrylic skirting, solid-steel internal frame, and over 300 Watts of RGB LED lighting. This piece is for the dedicated enthusiast who wants to adorn their space with a one-of-a-kind conversation piece unlike any other.

    For a Novatrope this big, the sculptures have to be screwed into place, so the quick-change snap lock is not an option. We'll send you a post-campaign survey for you to pick your favorite sculpture design from our menu and we'll ship it to you ready-to-install. Witness it for yourself: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j86MXYg2ZhI
