Minifig Display Case

Postby Andi » Mon Mar 23, 2009 2:13 pm

Inspired by Skafte's Lego-built case (Link I wanted to build a case all with Lego for my two chrome Minifigs.
While ordering the parts on Bricklink, some miscalculating happened, but finally all trans-clear pieces arrived today.
But after assembling them I was not happy with it. You could barely see the figs.

So I tried something else, but now the front was open.

Knowing how fast this would get very much dusty, I wasn't very happy with it as well.

So i looked around in my room and my view fell on an empty CD case.
The result looks like that:

with lights on, again a bit modified for better access to the battery

I like it. At least as long till my path passes a hobby shop which might have some plexiglass cases.
Do you like it? I really want to include some light, so it was a bit tricky.

i think it looks fine... my only suggestion would be to redo the lights a bit so they are pointed at the front of the minifigs... either by putting them in the base pointed up, or wiring them to the top of the case pointing down... having the lights behind the figs is rather distracting and takes away from the display...
