Do you ever run into the problem of having dust collect on your minifig shelf? More so i am looking for a solution. Dusting works, if I do it enough, but I have taken to keeping covers, whether hand towels or dry-cleaning bags to keep dust off
lucky, although I like(d) to keep my builds out in the open. That and when I am building or working with minifigures I usually claim the space in my family's living room in front of the television, and they might dwell there for several days as I work on stuff
One day I'll sort my building area enough to display here... but for now it remains a mess!
In the meantime, inspired by AK's minifig display, I've put together a display frame.
I've been searching for a way to display some of my minifigs for a while now. My wife suggested this idea she found on one of the blogs she visits called Frugal Fun for Boys and Girls. They have tons of great Lego ideas and we have tried quite a few out with our son.
Anyway the display uses a frame from Ikea, so relatively easy to source (even here down under!) and 56 2x4 bricks that you have to be willing to sacrifice to the Kragle. Although it took us multiple attempts to get the spacing right, once we had a template the rest was pretty easy (although the pedantic amoung you will notice that one brick slipped pretty bad during the gluing process...)
Anyway here are 56 of my Roawian figs, starting with King Chartres and Queen Emmaline and the four current faction leaders. My collection is still quite Lenfel centric, although Loreos is catching up... Most of the Lenfel high Lords are featured as well as my Lenfel and Loreesi main characters.
Already seen and faved on flickr but couldn't resist commenting here as well.
I've got one of these frames (or possibly a slightly smaller one) and this has reinvigorated me to complete the project. Are these figs just for display or do you have some access to them?
I did my yellow star wars, LOTR and Marvel figs as I don't use them for parts.
I've left the glass out so that I can access them as required. I think eventually it will be for display - but now I use the parts too much! I was thinking of doing a Star Wars display at some stage...
I will soon be in the process of sorting my entire room, which is good as I have several boxes and stashes of lego all around, several of which are dusty (sacrilege!) but sorting is my goal, as is developing a better way to display/store them so that they wont get dusty when I leave them built
