Enclosed displays please.....
I am still looking for the best way to display mine. Right now it is on the dining room table cover with plastic. I am looking for a something that will keep it relatively dust free, deep and strong enough to hold it.

Looking forward to your ideas and displays

No offense but why not look through the Jabba image thread?

There are tons of set up photos in there...

I was interested in starting a new fresh thread devoted to Jabba's in a enclosed environment. A lot of the Jabba's in that thread are out in the open.
Is that a good enough reason for a new thread?

It is.

And I'm anxious to see what someone might have come up with. Mine as well is sitting on a table---

I have asked Dave to change the title of this thread.
Hopefully it will reflect what I am looking for more accurately.

Dr2red... I am in the same boat... thats why I haven't displayed any of my stuff yet.

I've searched online for cases to fit things in and no luck without ... most shelves are too short for the base. plus with Biker Scout on order and the man Darkness in my collection I need something not only deep for Jabbas throne but tall and wide.

The only solution so far is to make something custom made. I'm looking at something 2'D x 4'W and the height of each shelf needs to be over just over 24" (to make room for lights:D)

:confused::confused::confused:

I don't think I have seen any pictures of cased displays so it might be interesting if anybody did.

I have been looking for a good strong display case that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. I am hoping that someone on the forum will be able to show myself and others their ideas. I need to use my dining room table for eating again:D

No reason to get pi$$y...I asked you to not take offense to pointing you to the Jabba image thread, yet you did. I know you were asking about cases as well but I don't think many have this enclosed because of the size to set this up with all the characters.

There was one that had a case specially made in that thread with the size dimensions and where they bought it from which is why I directed you there.

Sorry I wasn't getting pissy just pleading my case for a new thread.:D

It didn't come across that way but fair enough. BTW, a specialty size case is going to cost as much as (if not more than) the entire Jabba set up which is probably also why not many have it enclosed besides the space issue.

Good point. I wish I had the cash to build a specialty case. I love my Jabba and don't want to have to box it up due to lack of display space. My bookcases are fine for the PFs but Jabba and his throne are just to big and heavy.

Thats why I bought a 37" x 37" card table for mine and I kind of like not having it cased since any dust kind of adds to the realism since I am sure that wasn't a very clean palace.

Even with the plastic on it mine I am sure is as realistic as yours :lol

The best option for an enclosed Jabba display is buying a fish tank.

I have seen it done for other collectibles. They seem to work really well and there is a large variety of sizes to choose from.

Jabba ended up making me lose the Detolfs and work on a custom display cabinet that would take him and the rest of my SW ma$$ive

Im waiting on a jewel in the display cabinet crown from Hurricane and then I will be taking pics and posting them !

Sweet... can't wait.

Is it a Hurricane Vader that you're waiting for?...

I found these as well but not sure how much they would cost.http://jewelryshowcases.ca/jewelry_showcases_counter_displaycases.htm
I will have to go to some local pet stores to see if they have any tanks for sale.

Dang, a couple of those would be perfect. I wish I had the room for one of them, that would be better than the table.

I am checking local for sale ads for Jewelry Cases and or displays to see if I can get one cheap. At least I have some ideas what to look for now.

My husband was looking at plans to build a plexiglass aquarium which is great
but I still need a base.

Look for going out of business stores. Often times they'll look to get rid of their cases extra cheap.

I found a guy with some for sale on kijji but he has no pictures or measurements. I have emailed him and hopefully he might have something I am looking for.

Wow what a great case. It must be huge! Did you have it made?
I could put a huge amount of my collection in it.

01-20-2008, 12:19 PM
Yeah...Huge is good word for it :lol

I designed it and had a buddy make it for me up in Pa then had it shipped (:google) back here to Ga.

I love this case though and hate dusting figures here's a pic I took awhile back.Really dwarfs Jabba set up I think

That is just amazing. Great setup and yes Jabba looks smallish.

I have possibly found a case for Jabba if the size works out. It is a jewelry
display case with storage below. I just need a measurement of height of the
glass display part. If it does I will go see it with my husband and I might have
something.
Case did not work out, only 12 inch high in the glass portion.

Still looking....

Yeah my Jabba set up is all boxed pending a move...and space to display it all. I hate to think of this being displayed out in the open without a case. Matters will be made worse when the DK Tumbler rolls in...:monkey2:rolleyes:
