Okay, so I have these cool little boxed shelves hung on my wall; basically I used them for displaying Lego sets or decent MOCs. Currently I have a bunch of different sets on display, showing off some of my fav sets from the last few years. For example, I have my Temple of Doom setup, and another with some HP figs and vehicles. I'm sure I've posted pictures of them before, although they're usually not the main focus...
Anyway, I've had this kind of mini stand with some of my favorite minifigs on it. It was basically just a 8x16 brick with a bunch of figs on it. But as I get more collectable minifigures, I want to display more, and my block has run out of room. And most of my shelves on my wall have too much vertical room to show off minifigs...
So I build a minifig display for one of these shelves.
The cool thing is the shelf is about 26 studs wide, so the stand fits in snugly. It has about 5 and a half levels on it, with each level being a couple of plates five bricks above the previous one. Standing alone, the stand is somewhat fragile, but it is supported when inside the shelf, and so far it hasn't collapsed on me. I might tweak the design a bit to allow me to organize minifig placement, but it's pretty cool so far.
For the most part, 3.5 of the 5 levels contain mostly the coolest collectible figs, with a few other cool ones mixed in. (Superman, Santa, ext) One level has my custom Chuck and Warehouse 13 figs on it. The final level is reserved for my Star Wars figs, but since I'm just starting that collection, it's kinda meager. Basically it a stormtrooper, scout trooper, TIE pilot, R2D2, C3P0, and a stand-in for Leia. My plans this summer is to collect a Luke, Han, Chewy, and Darth Vader to finish up the collection... hopefully I can trade using some of the unique collectible figs I have dupes of.
I'll probably be rearranging the figs as I get more cool ones (or if I redesign the stands) I will certainly need one for my LotR figs I'll be getting. Luckily, I already have my PotC, Indy, Harry Potter, and Ninjago figs on displays with their respective sets, but future purchases will bring me more figs and they will need to be displayed too.
I could've just done this whole blog entry with a picture and be done with it, but I'm too lazy so instead you get a wall of text. I have some Rahi picts to post, but I need to edit them, and since my week is already hectic, it probably won't happen until the weekend. Just wanted to blog about something, and my other main topics are all spoilery.
