So I finally got around to setting up this inexpensive Bush bookcase. Looks pretty good and mostly matches the other "wood' piece in the room. It is a bit cramped but still works. I'm undecided about adding LED lighting like I have on my other displays. thinking 

The Leia B bits are mostly squared away now.

I think I may be ok, but tight, to squeeze in the loose Kenner run on the bottom shelf.
That just leaves one shelf above that for a new concept/run I am working on which I am extremely excited to have started..... more on that to come later Wink

Anyway.... yes, I know the Luke Bespin proof is out of place a bit on the three main shelves, but for now it works. Smile

It is very simple but much better than my crappy 3" shelves I had before.  What a Face

So hard to balance it out and distribute the pieces. I am sure I'll re-work it a few dozen times. Razz
But it fits so far with my "must display my collection" or don't collect it mentality.


cheers!

Very nice display Jay, the book case works well. I like your "must display my collection or don't collect it" mentality. If only I could be so disciplined.

Thanks!!!!

and haha... I just hate thinking I have stuff in boxes in a closet or attic.  BUT.... If I can squeeze more room out of my place, the more I can collect! tongue  Already managed to squeeze that bookcase in and that is a huge step forward!  I can't wait to break out my loose run and start displaying my figures!  Angry SW 

Thanks man!

cheers!

Looks great Jay, nice display.
Some 4 tier acrylic risers on the bottom shelf
would allow for a good amount of space for your loose 92.
I look forward to the concept pieces.

Thanks everyone!!

I have shown how I display my other stuff a few times (my custom built first 21+ case, my modest loose Luke FB run and my sea of Leias) so I like taking the time to set things up so they are not only functional, but good looking and as much as a conversation piece as they can be.

This one is the one I have been debating for a long time. Previously my Leia MOC run just sat on two  2" x 48" shelves. They worked but looked like crap.
So the bookshelf idea is one I have seen tons of folks use and it made sense and just barely fits in the space I have. It works.

I just need to keep it limited so it doesn't become too cluttered... yeah, I know that is going to be very hard!

But already I was able to take out of hiding a few pieces that were previously tucked away which to me is just awesome!!!!

I have a few risers that I hope will stretch the lower shelf out to hold the Kenner run. Based on my sea of Leias, it should just work, so I am happy! cheers
Next I'll need to figure out how to protect them best from dust!  study 

The fourth shelf is what I am excited about most only because it is uncharted territory for me and a new run concept.  Cool 

Overall, I like it. Simple and cheap. Bright and spacious. Razz

Thanks again guys. Nothing fancy but it working so much better that I had and better than I hoped.

cheers!
Very Happy

Looking good chief!

Looks like you could do with... I don't know? a hundred or so clear plastic stands?  :cool laugh: 

They're on there way chief, just hold out a little longer!

lol!  Alex
And for some very strange reason my package from you went to Los Angeles, not NY like every single package I ever got from the UK! Weird! I'm sure its fine, but it will take a a few extra days. Sad

Anyway.... I just put up what I could, down to the last stand I had.
Not a bad place to run out though; the last 17 minus EV9D9 and the Endor crew. Smile

That shelf (12"x36") with those risers will hold the full set! cheers
