Re: Chris-batmego27


thanks again!

asher40 it was probably the best one ever!

here is a quick shot of the current collection. just pulled em out real quick and took a phone pic so not all that clear. also in the process of deciding on a manner of display and storage. going to be either going the acrylic or zoloworld route. Newest acquisitions are Mantis, Steppenwolf, the Hall of Justice and small card GL.

Killer collection! I can speak from experience in saying you'll be 1000% happy going the acrylic case route. It'll cost more, but in the long run it'll display much much better than in those Zoloworld cases.

Collection looks great!

I'll echo Mike in that acrylic is the way to go, albeit more expensive.

Re: Chris-batmego27


very good...I'll definitely keep that in mind. I know the acrylic displays beautifully based on many of the collections I've been seeing on here. If I went the zolo route I would probably be in at around or just under $200 to get about 45 cases....do you guys have a guesstimate of where I would be to acrylic the same number of figures? just trying to judge if the better display is truly worth it to me. Either way it is gonna be a bit, I've got the last 3 carded figures I needed now coming along with a batmobile that I paid way too much for so going have at least a cpl weeks off!

Re: Chris-batmego27


Hi Chris,

I'll let you calculate the total cost since it will vary a bit depending on how many cases you purchase at a time and whether you're an AFA member (see quantity and AFA membership discounts on the pages linked below:

Normal sized bubble SP carded figures need the following:

Style A Acrylic Case from AFA

Deep bubble SP carded figures like Kalibak, Mantis, Parademon, Desaad, Penguin, Steppenwolf, Hawkman, and Brainiac need the following case style:

Style B Acrylic Case from AFA

So, a complete 33 figure carded set requires 24 "Style A" cases and 9 "Style B" cases. Note that Darkseid does not fit properly into the "Style B" case due to his large card, but you can still use one for him provided you don't slide the card between the side and top rails.

You could also inquire about acrylic cases through Oscar Didier's Oscar's Cases. Oscar's cases are a hair cheaper, but I only purchase AFA cases for myself since their service is 100% consistent based on my experiences.

The Zoloworld cases are going to be much less expensive, but carded figures in those cases display poorly to my eye (no offense meant to anyone that likes them and/or uses them...we all have different tastes).

Re: Chris-batmego27


Yes I have to agree with the acrylic case route. While it's quite the investment compared to the zolo cases, you'll love how they display and they are well protected.

Here's a link to a guide to buying the acrylic cases. It covers things like which figures fit into "A" style and "B" style as well as measurements on custom case sizes for figures like Darkseid and the small card Shell Canada figures.
