What display units do people use for their loose figures?
Mine have been stored in a safe place for more than 15 years and I'm worried if I put them on display they will discolour or fade.

By far the best (imho) are Collector Displays. https://collectordisplaysuk.com/

Drew is a top guy. They're well worth the money, as they are built with a collector's eye and the build quality is superb.

Here's mine:

They fit a full run and you can buy extension stands to fit any variants. Drew also does customs sometimes, so might be worth messaging him to see what's currently available and if he can do something different. All the info should be on the website.

The best thing is the magnetised front- so easy to get the figures in and out. Some people even recess the cases so they are flush with the wall. They look amazing, but way beyond my meagre DIY skills!

Those look great! You mention possibly putting them behind glass or Perspex to keep out the dust, and I think that's a very good idea. I hate dusting my collection, which is why I always put mine behind Perspex. If you or anyone else is interested in trying their hand at building their own cabinets, complete with Perspex covers, I wrote a 'How to' guide here, since I always build my own:


Using this technique, I have made myself these over the years:



And if you're interested in seeing a more detailed look at my main loose vintage run held in one of the cabinets above, it's here:


Thanks.

Top work Jeremy, they look great.

My collecting space is my attic room so the challenges of the ceiling/wall angles have meant that I've always made my own shelving to display my collection so I can maximise the space. I have considered fitting perspex over the front in the past but I do like them being fully out in "the open" but dust is definitely a problem 🙈

Thank you.

Yes, it's a trade off I suppose between being able to get at your collection more easily and having to dust it if there are no covers, and having covers but no dusting. It can certainly be a pain having to open my cabinets up to add new items, but I hate dusting so much that for me it's a price worth paying! :ROFLMAO:
