Can someone give me some suggestions for a Display Case?

Post by Captain Fordo on Thu Jun 26, 2008 6:25 pm

I am in the midst of creating a display case to display my minifigs and was going to make it somewhat similar to this: http://cgi.ebay.com/Lego-Star-Wars-Custom-Display-Case-for-18-minifig-clone_W0QQitemZ160205307718QQihZ006QQcategoryZ19009QQtcZphotoQQcmdZViewItem

I have the inner lego part figured out but I'm not sure where to get the frame, does anyone have any ideas on where I could buy a frame similar to this one?

I actually have no idea where you could get that frame sorry, but I was thinking it would be pretty sweet if you made the case out of lego (assuming it's fairly small).

Just get like a sheet of clear plastic (or fiberglass or whatever), make a frame, screw the fiberglass into the frame with a drill.
BOOM!
You've got display case!

Art's & Craft store or home design would be the best. You can get a picture frame that has an inch or 2 from the back to the glass. However they tend to be $$$. I like to have mine (whole sets) out where people can pick them up and look at them.

Yeah I thought about having an open display like that...but alas, I have little 6-year-old hands who like to "play" with my legos...and by play I mean pretend they can fly by throwing them down a flight of stairs (yes that actually happened to my Slave I). I've put my vehicles in a closet with various shelves (up high so they are safe). However I want my figs to be out for people to see, but I dont want my nice customs to get broken. Maybe I'll head out to Michaels or ACmoure (sp?) to see if there are any picture frames like the one you described. Thanks.
