    Just wondering if you guys can lead me to a site that has decent bookcase type enclosures to display Transformers. Must have doors to keep dust to a minimum. And since it would be to showcase them, everything on the inside should be visible from the outside.

    What do you guys use? Brand/Cost/Where you purchased?

    Looking for something in the $200.00+/- range. I checked out RacksandStands.com but all the stuff they list just does'nt look right. It's pricey as heck too.

    That does'nt look half bad. Thanks for the link.
    I see one on their site that would be perfect and there's less glass to clean :thumb  It's over double the price but it's a little wider, taller, deeper and has one extra shelf. Oh, and it has a lock.

    Saved for future purchase. Thanks again!


    Anyone else have anything that can match this?

    Ebay:
    Job Lot also has (occassionally) some really decent curio cabinets..I got some of mine from them over the summer, and it worked out really good. Check them out if you have one around you. Otherwise, IKEA would be the next bet..I bought one of their Billy Cases a few months ago and it worked out pretty good.

    Yeah, I have 2 of those and hope to get 2 more after xmas. Like someone else said, the Billy bookcases are nice if you want more of a display system. I also have a Liatorp entertainment center complete with bookshelves and bridging shelf, and it's LOADED with Transformers and MegaMan toys. Mine are open, but you can get full-length glass doors effectively making them gigantic display cases. Yeah...I'm gonna need more space.

    Ikea FTW. Although I like open-air shelves because I fiddle, transform and merge for the kill a lot.

    "Handle with care! A strike, knock or scratch can cause the glass to crack suddenly. However, only into small pieces, never into sharp fragments."

    Lol found that amusing for some reason. I wonder if those are US only, i could really use one.
