Lookin' good!

I hope that shelf is really strong because that's a fair amount of weight on it.  It would be tragedy for them to hit the floor.  :-[

Any of you guys have glass or acrylic display cases that are suitable for this line?

To be honest thats been worrying me, it seems strogn enough but to be on the safe side I've taken Vader off again. I'll be displaying Vader with Obi-Wan eventually anyway.

I have individual acrylic cases for all of mine, and there are other collectors who have one large HUGE case. Here are a couple pics of mine:

Here are a couple with "glass" cabinets:

and Frost19's:



Hope that helps. :)

Absolutely inspiring, I must say.

I think I'm going to have to invest in a case to protect my Vader and Ben.

Great pics. This'll be the only statue I get, so I'll definitely get one of the single statue cases. No way I want to look over at the thing and see a coat of dust and cobwebs on it. Where'd you get yours, Mini-Rock?

I get mine from Cases for Collectibles. They're a little expensive, but totally worth it. :)

I think I'm going to go with something like this eventually, I really like the look of them all displayed together and  I could probably afford 1 big case... or I could use a huge fishtank :-\

Very nice set up, I really like the IKEA cases. I'm looking to get the Skogen & a couple of the Bertby cases then I'll see down the road about the Detolf cases depending on the room I have.

What are the dimensions and price on that case Han's in? It looks like it should fit Dagobah Luke.

These are some really nice set up's and you can tell thought was put into the arrangements.  My personal fav is Guson's.  Main they look clean displayed all together in such a huge clean case. 

Mini posters and photo's in the background are a nice touch with the track lighting.

The case for Han is 12x10x22 and is about $76 before shipping. I think one for Dagobah Luke would have to be a bit bigger because of the base. To me, it looks bigger than those that came with Han and Luke. Hopefully, we get to find out before years end. :)

So these things come in pieces, huh? How do they assemble? Has anyone had any difficulties? Have you all been happy with the quality of the pieces? Anyone ever get one with paint smudges, scrapes or other blemishes or defects/damage?
