So, given all that, I'm trying to work on display solutions in my tiny apartment. My Disney Infinity figures were at the top of the "I need to do something better with these" list. I had them all on shelves on my TV stand. It was fine, but I couldn't see all the figures and they are rather cool sculpts -- I would have purchased them even if I didn't play the game. Aww. Let's pour one out for the canceled game.
Online research showed me many Disney Infinity figure collectors used picture ledge shelves from IKEA or baseball bat display cases from Michael's. I considered both options; the appeal of not dusting my figures won out so I went with the display cases. The cases fit anywhere from 14-16 figures. With about 100 Disney Infinity characters, that meant six or so cases, which I decided was too many. Instead of lining up all those display cases, I used the space between them. I still have to dust, but at least I only have to clean half the collection?
I think I made a good call:
The basics: I cleaned each figure with a damp paper towel (and sometimes a Q-Tip) and sorted them by franchise and film, I had someone else hang the shelves because it's not something I have patience for, and then carefully placed each figure. I put big ones like Hulk and Iron Man's Hulkbuster armor inside the cases. I was happy to see I still have room for the Finding Nemo and Alice in Wonderland figures, too. I'm going to add LED strips eventually, but for now, I'm pleased.
The baseball bat display cases fit 3 3/4" action figures and Funko POPs, and since they're made for heavy bats, I don't think filling them is an issue as long as the cases are properly mounted. Again, you can get them from Michael's. They're $59.99, but they go on sale regularly -- I got mine for $29.99 each.
How do you display your Infinity figures? Send me pics!
