I bought a new display case for my new apartment. No more dusty bookshelves for my custom figures. It's small (my wife wouldn't let me buy the bigger one) so i'll have to rotate my "showcases". I decided to start with an all-LOTR display. I installed a low heat fluorescent light.
All figures are custom made except for the SS Legolas, Aragorn, and Boromir, as well as the toybiz gimli.
Here it is:




Top Shelf: Warriors of Rohan


2nd shelf: Knights of Numenor


3rd shelf: Elves and a dwarf


bottom: Evil Nasties

Nice to see your awesome bashes are now in display. Always love seeing your home made armor (made from X-ray films). What about the 1/6th female figs you have modified into awsome looking lady warriors (barbarians?) with no visible doll joints? Aren't you going to put those masterpieces on display too? BTW, nice display case Doc.

Cool display! Did you say there was a bigger display cabinet? Where can I get one? (I'm in Manila too.) Tired of dusty figures on bookshelves...

Aragorn:
Sons of Gondor, of Rohan, my brothers!
I see in your eyes...
The same fear that would take the heart of me.
A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship,
But not this day.
An hour of wolves and shattered shields when the age of men comes crashing down,
But it is not this day!
This day we fight!
By all that you hold dear on this good earth, I bid you stand, men of the West!

Nice display case, it really highlights your collection well.
This is probably by far the definitive 1/6 LOTR collection out there, though I think your customs make the factory stuff look bad. Cool works Jimmiroquai :)

Kumusta Ka Pare! That is some nice collection you have there. It's always nice to have something on display right? I think you started off with the right stuff to show as well.

Salamat!

Thanks, guys! Yeah my femfigs (or the BustyBabes as my wife calls them) are in storage for the mean time. I'll put them up next month, maybe. :) If you're in manila, you can get these at SM Megamall Dept store. Yeah, its the ikea case. I tried using the puck light but the xenon one i bought wasn't as bright and halogens are too hot. I'm considering putting another light at the bottom.

Hi Jim,

I've used the ikea cases before. One thing to note if manila is as humid as singapore is the mould that tends to grow on the ikea wood.


Was told that the mould grows because the wood is untreated and a coating of vanish should solve the problem.


I myself have not gotten to vanish it yet but mould does grow if not for my moisture absorbers that i put in the case.


Oh and yes, great customs! :jawdrop

I was told they work but i'm current using something called "hungry hippo". Best thing will be to varnish the wood. I've put that in my to do list :p
