I tried Google and all of the forum searches, and I cannot find it, so I am asking your help. I seem to recall seeing pics of someone owning 2m (6-ft) truss totems that break apart into separate tubes and baseplates sort of like the Trusst Glo Totems. However, instead of (4) 2m poles per totem they broke down into EIGHT interconnectable 1m poles per totem and came in a neat tote. I wish I could recall the manufacturer and the forum that I spied those pics.

I am coming up to a gig in November where the load-in elevators are TINY, so these type of separate-component truss totems could be ideal. Any ideas?

I can't find it on a search, but you can buy the 1m kit and then 4 1m poles and the interconnecting collars.

They use to sell them on eBay and amazon there is a YouTube video about them as well

Chauvet and Trusst is the same company. I have the Trusst Glo Totem 2.0.
Global Truss also sells a similar package, and Odyssey has a multi-piece truss totem (but it is much wider and uses smaller-diameter poles).

It turned out to be a discontinued totem package sold by Omez Lighting. The 2 meter high poles actually broke down into 1 meter segments (so baseplate, 8 1-meter poles, and the top plate). Unfortunately, I cannot find them anywhere.

It turned out to be the Omez Lighting Go-Truss system. No longer made. Too bad, this would be awesome to bring in my smaller vehicles for smaller events. I like how the case has individual loops for each pole. I grabbed these images from the BH Photo site, which included a bad review. Apparently, the case broke easily (isn't that always the "case") and there were lots of sharp aluminum shavings left in the package.

You wouldn't get the case, but wouldn't a 1m kit plus extra 1m poles fit the same space?

Getting the 1m poles plus connectors and baseplates separately is (or more accurately, WAS) significantly more than the price of the Omez kit or even another Trusst Glo Totem kit.
