    ^ Donald Gennaro is the best of that display.

    Gennaro was definitely the easiest of the custom figs. Really hoping to get a better face for Mr DNA one day instead of the sticker I drew on.

    I recognized it right away. I like what you did with it @legobod, but certainly a printed face would be preferable.

    @gold682 looks very nice! I have Series 12 to 20 lining my staircase. Love seeing the kids pausing to admire them as they walk up and down the stairs!

    Not sure if these things have been seen in this thread before. This is a little three-shelf stand I saw in my local Daiso (Japanese chain with many branches here in Malaysia that sells everything for the same price of MYR5.90- about £1.10). It just says "display stand" and the picture on the label shows toy cars but each of the shelves is exactly 20 studs wide and 4 studs deep so maybe whoever designed it had minifigures in mind. Anyway here's the shelf, its label, and a few random minifigures on it.

    I just thought I'd mention that I'm returning to the UK later this month and I'm planning to bring a few of these back with me. If there's anyone in the UK who might be interested in one or two, let me know.

    This is what replaced the Ribba frames? (forgive me if "ribba" is incorrect)

    Yes, it named SANNAHED and it better than RIBBA (and expencive a bit)

    Different, but similar question for the crowd (I will also ask in the SW thread):

    How do people display microfighters or similarly small builds? 

    I've got a few in small acrylic display cases, but it's hard to fit more than 3-4 per case unless I go with a larger case that then becomes a lot of wasted height. Some sort of shadow-box style display might be more efficient, but I'm not sure if there are any good options for the typical depth of the micro fighters.

    Does anybody have one of these display frames who could check to see how well micro fighters would work in it--I can't tell if it's deep enough? https://digsforfigs.com/product/minifig-display-frame-black/ 

    I could use the baseball bat cases that I have my Brickheadz in, but I don't have a ton more wall space for their length, and I think they would also have a decent amount of wasted height--although I can resolve some of that by using trans pieces to have the microfighters at varying heights and overlapping a little. Still far from ideal though.

    So are they deeper than the Ribba? As there are a few CMF that don't fit so well in Ribba

    No matching plates for them to stand on?
    Brickfan50Fizyx
  • FizyxFizyx ColoradoMember Posts: 1,158
    No. The plates they stand on are 1x2 plates, with a 1x2 tile either side, and a 1x6 tile behind them. Behind that is the white panel, with the glass panel directly in front of them. All of those are sat on a 4x6 base. On top of the two panels, in the middle of each, are 1x4 tiles with two studs at the ends, and joining the two panels at each end are 1x4 tiles.

    Here's a photo:


    That is a fantastic brick-built and continuously expandable display solution!

    Thanks! I also built it like that to be able to easily switch the individual modules around when adding more. I wanted a solution which would be flexible and also completely dust-free.

    Slightly surprisingly, once the sides, top and bottom are on, it's quite sturdy and can be carried easily.

    very cool. it looks like there are air gaps on the side, but I assume once they are all connected it stops dust getting in? I want to go find that front glass piece now on bricklink :)

    The new IKEA frame is my crush. Good depth and it can be placed on the table.

    Great background. Where did you get that? Is it possible, that I can use it too?

    ...and, have you Kragled the inverted slope pieces into place? They look like 2x2, correct? Do you think a 3x2 would fit into those frames?

    Yes there are gaps, but the side of the outer frame removes those gaps, so no dust can get in.

    The shot glasses are so you can stop your thimbles from getting dusty if you put a golf ball on top.

    I have that many. When I stop in a Harley Dealer for the first time I get a black t-shirt, and if I rode my Harley there I pick up a shot glass too.

    Not to get too far off topic, but...
    Is that a thing?

    By the looks of it, one could store a minifig in each of those shot glasses.  And prevent dust by covering the top with a Duplo brick.  (Or a Primo brick and perhaps a Quatro brick, for you old folks that remember such products...)

    I’ve looked at retail hanging display options on Amazon before..

    That way you take up a small footprint but still get to see the variety of polybags...

    I guess you could always open them, empty out and then flatten the bags behind the glass of a regular frame.  Would at least stop all the odd reflections and light splashes caused by the bulges.
