    Hi guys I have one of these

    http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/catalog/products/10011055

    to hold some of my figures, books and stuff.

    Can anyone recommend a wall unit / another glass type cabinet ? It'll be for holding tall figurines and items.

    Cheers for your help and time

    Greg

    Is this one any good Greg? Think it looks about ideal for what I want, but is it sturdy, well made etc?

    Detolfs are popular, as are Billy bookcases. If you want to glass-front a billy, there's these doors.

    Seconded! I have one, and the stuff I've put in it looks stunning in it. Although it's pure hell to assemble (be sure to be at least two putting it together) It's so worth it. It's made of glass, metal and wood. Very sturdy!

    just to add a quick note they come in quite heavy flat-pack boxes and are generally quite long i bought 3 at a time and really struggled getting them in my mums freelander(land rover) otherwise im sure your collection will love them!

    You won't is the simple answer! IKEA home delivery is the future, you don't have to trudge round those hellholes that way!

    I bought three at the same time myself, and I just love them! A word of caution though: They are very heavy at about 50 kg each, and the boxes they come in are about 5 feet in length. I would suggest IKEA home delivery, and a second person to help you with the assembly. But trust me, you won't be disappointed!

    That totally sucks! I live about 10 km from IKEA, and they deliver, no questions asked.

    Apparently in the UK, Ikea only deliver in London. Go figure!!!
    Well at least the delay in getting one now means I got some time to work out where to put the damn thing... :D
