my idea is to get one say for the first 12 , then one for all the hoth figures etc .uv protected ,stick some stands in ,maybe a little plaque with the names on
my best man recommended them ,he knows the guy and says he will be able to get a discount
then i will put them on display in the little lads room
what do you reckon

They look pretty good, it will be interesting to see a few loose figures in them. 8)

Becareful when ordering them - they are expensive and the sizes may not be suitable for figures.

I managed to get one of ebay for about £9, not for figures but for smaller items. I believe this is the same size as the one pictured with the car

The clear bit of the case is only about 3 inches high

If you are having one case per figure and its variants its going to cost you a fortune isnt it???.

well, perhaps the more cost effective way might be to do the plastic boxes yourself. get a simple piece of acrylic sheets, cut them using penknife neatly, glue using solvent or chlorofoam, make a simple carboard or wood base and you have it.
once you got one off, the rest will be just following the same dimensions with a template. takes some skill to do a neat job though!

no i am not putting one figure in one each ,plus your missing the fact that my mate should be able to get them at cost for me
also they are uv protected ,you can also have a mirror in i think so gonna look in to that as it may look really mint
plus once i get all the figures i plan to keep them in the family ,so it will be a nice investment
