    Anyone have an idea how to create or buy a staggered clear shelves to display figures. That way you can clearly see figures in the back of your display as long as you have the height. Thanks.

    doh. i thought you meant staggering as in impressive. you mean a tiered/stage display.

    import shops have these but mostly for gashapons. have you tried CD jewel boxes?

    Clear Plexiglass and Superglue.

    Cut out the shape of the shelf and how many steps you need for the sides, then cut out the steps themselves and glue the steps onto the side pieces. (on top of the sides for strenght) Depending on the length and hieght of the shelf, you may want to cut out a third side piece for a brace in the center. (this will help to prevent bowing) Determin the thickness of the Plexiglass before you buy it based on the amount of weight you're going to put on the shelf.

    You can find Plexiglass at Menards or any Big Hardware store.

    What have people done with their Ikea Cabinets for this. Have you built your own shelves or bought something?

    Baseball card cases work really well too, come in different sizes, and usually fit pretty much all Tf types, width wise, without taking up to much extra room.
