Hi everyone, I'm new on the forum and wanted to get some thoughts on a project from some fellow collectors. My name is Mat and I recently made a case for my childhood minifigs. I posted it to the Lego subreddit and got a nice response and wanted to do a small run of cases, but really wanted some community feedback before I go any further. I feel like my design has a lot of room for improvement.
Here are a couple images:
The case is made from laser cut 1/8" plexi and currently the holds 36 figures. I have been thinking of reducing the number to 16 instead. It would make the case more affordable and would hold a full series of minifigs for collectors.
The front and back are both covered although the photo doesn's show it well. The front cover slides off.
Also each cell is currently 2.5" wide, 2.25" tall, and 1.125" deep.This holds these guys well, but could be too tight for larger minifigs. Thoughts?
Last thing I'm wondering about are the baseplates. I designed this so the case holds baseplates tightly, but most people don't have baseplates for every minifig. I like how it holds them in, but I dont want to limit people.
I would love some feedback from some fellow collectors. This is just a little side project that I'm playing with and I have had a great time meeting some fellow Lego fansin the process!
