I really don't think there is a Star Case big enough to hold Ephant Mon. This site sells Deluxe Star Cases that may be of some help.
Wholesale Source for ProTech Products

I know Oscar Didier makes very nice Acrylic Display Cases for almost every figure including Ephant Mon.
Oscar's Cases

I highly recommend Oscar's cases.

Oscar is the only place where you can get a case that will hold an Ephant Mon figure.  I bought two from him for my two Ephant Mon's, and they're great cases.  I would highly recommend him any day.

The best place is Wholesale Cases, like Dale (DSJ) mentioned above.  They're all going to be about the same price anywhere you end up going.  I've dealt with them about 5 separate times and they've been great.

A little late on this one, I am, but nonetheless, I'll share my experience:

I am a huge fan of the Protecto Packs.  To me they are sturdier than the Star Cases when put side by side, plus the PP don't have the triangle hangtag/lip on top that the SC have(makes it nicer if your lining you figures on a wall above ea. other)

Also, the clamshell PP design vs. the 2 piece SC is a huge advantage, as well as I believe the PP are also UV coated (I may be wrong, but they seem to have an ever so slight bluish tint.

I order mine from adkins collectibles, online a cs. of 90 runs about .89/ea. with S&H they come to about $1.06/ea.  best case and best buy in my opinion.

As far as Ephant cases-Oscar's Cases are absolutely fantastic-have a few for my vintage carded and cardbacks.  Outstanding heavy duty cases-highly reccommend.

In addition, I'll add I just found that the protecto packs DO hold the animated clone wars figs.  They don't hold the Battlefront Scout trooper.  Still the best "cheap" cases around at .89/ea. ($1.06 w/S&H, etc.) and much sturdier than the star cases.

Also, just got my hands on some "deluxe" size star cases (about $1.50ea.) as for an idea on size-they hold the original POTF2 size deluxe perfect.  This also includes figs like Amanaman POTJ, sith/droid POTJ, also the Saga deluxe like the 3PO/battle droid deluxe and yoda/super battle droid deluxe.

The clone 3 packs which are smaller don;t fit exactly but they do "sit in" the deluxe case bubble nicely(kinda floats in the case).

Hope that info helps.

Here's a few pics of figs displayed in the protecto packs, also one pic has the vintage loose just in the individual plastic cases from Michaels stores (I get them with the sales, etc.)

Hey Bobafett14...I just got three cases of Protecto-paks and they're awesome!

Also nice that they're less expensive than the Star Cases.

Will the Oscar cases hold figures like the Max Rebo Band Pairs, Princess Leia 2-packs, Shirtless Maul and other odd sized large carded figures like that?

According to Oscar's site:

Quote
If you need a custom size case, just let us know.  We will be happy to make you any size case you need.

I'm sure he will be able to make something up if you give him the measurements. I had Oscar make me a case for the Kubrick Speeder Bike and it's perfect. After C3, I am going to get some new cases made up.  8)

Thanks DSJ, I'm going to need cases for those plus other odd styled carded stuff like the Luke With Bacta tank.

There's a Star Case 2 (I belive is how it's listed-usually about $1.50ish)that's a little larger (actually wider than the reg. cases.  They will fit the band pairs nicely and also figs like POTJ amanaman and Maul vs. droid perfectly.

I also use them for my animated clone 3 packs(the 3 packs and anything that size are actually a little smaller than the cases, but I actually put the fgis in the case so that 2 of the sides usually bottom and one side are "clamped" by the case holding it in place.  It's not perfect, but works nicely.

Thanks for the info again Bobafett14.  I also hope that Protecto-Pak will make a case to protect these as well.  I think they are a superior product.
