Hey folks- I thought we could use a spot to keep that info on cases and displays handy for new lookers.
Since I am picture challenged, I will post my verbal information, and let the more accomplished swoop in and save the day with pictures. (actually I will post some links to my collection, and you can see some of them there)
Here at the Minnesota chapter of Kubrick's anonymous (where we celebrate our addiction) a popular display choice is the Johnny Lightning holder. You can see it in the background of the cabinet in these pictures.
Nothin like a good crackbrick day...
I'm trying my link again..
It features a hinged door for easy access, but no latch mechanism. Each holds 6 figures in individual compartments. They will hold all of the figures released to date, including IG 88. They also have holes on the back so they can be secured to the wall or cabinet, and interlock if you want to line them up. These were common at Toys R Us, but have started to dried up very recently. They retail for 5.99, and we hope they are still in production.
Another I found last week is a Prestige Display Case by AMT/Ertl for model cars. It is 9 3/4", long, 4 1/4" deep, and 3 11/16" high. It is a nice way to display up to 6 figures together. If you want IG-88 to fit, you will need to make a very small (1/4 ") spacer between the cover and the base. Everybody else gets in the door without problem. Hopefully you can find it in the linked pics above.
DSJ pointed us to the individual cases, you can see them here:
[quote author=DSJ™ Those individual Kuby cases can be ordered from Toytokyo for $37.99 for a box of 20 plus shipping.Kubricks/Be@rbricks 100% Display Case (Box of 20pcs)
Showing in stock so if anyone needs them, grab them. As for mine, on the way!
I also have a plastic case I like to use for storing my star wars kubricks by series. It is by Akro-Mils, and has changeable compartments. It is nice because it is deep enough to hold the boxes too. Each one of mine holds the 6 boxes from a series, with a compartment for each of them loose as well. These are available intermittently at Target, in the home improvement section. I have not found them anywhere else, but I am sure they are out there, or something that will work just as well.
I know there is a link someplace to the carded kubrick case, but I am not finding it. I'm sure someone will jump in and save the day! Here is a pic of them
Not me, I'm keeping him carded with the rest of the gang.
Let's get a kustoms thread started too- Jedijaybird has some great pics of ideas for hair and weapons swaps to create novel bricks. You can see my head-swapped Luke X wings in my link above (with the boxed sets with Luke ceremonial going cheap, I suggest getting one to make a younger Luke pilot).
