Hey guys im looking for a sturdy semi smaller display case that is about 31 inches long, and about 12 inches tallish, and at least 8 inches depth. Something similar to the design I attached.

Thank you everyone for your input and help, it's pretty devastating how much acrylic cases or glass even, are for such a simple and not really large size these cases are! I really like how custom and light the cases WanderingWastrel linked and has, but for the size im looking for which isn't small more large in length like I said, its really just way to much (more than the figure generally) to spend when I could go with a cheap glass fish tank that's honestly the same function! So ya, I found a perfect if not really close fish tank size for 1/3 the price that ima gonna go with, only downside I see atm is its weight since it's glass, but nothen extreme I think in that category still.

Taskie13 (4 mese/i fa) #21351310Thanks for the images to get an idea how they look / built, I like how its just all one piece (king of da pirates!) and easy to remove / put on the base it seems. Ya I really would love to get another detolf if that were both an option of a close store and room for something that size vs this route!
Yes it is easy to remove and put back on. If you look close you can see there's a 'lip' around the rim of the base, so that the clear cover sits on the rim and can't slide off. But if you'd like more info, please PM me, as I don't want to turn your post into an advertisement. :)

Taskie13 (4 mese/i fa) #21346985Im tryn to keep the measurements really close to that length to get the maximum amount of figures in it for the space I have ya know? I am probably going to use www.casesforcol... as they literally have so many custom sizes I think it will work, its def a lot more then I wanted to spend tho for that size a case, its around 140.00 I think shipped to me, now @WanderingWastrel you said you ordered from there already but did you get a case like what im looking for because i'm curious if these come pre built as well for how much they cost?

Yes, it's an expensive option, because they build each case to your specified measurements. Keep in mind that what they offer as a basic display case is an acrylic black base (or wooden base if you like) with an acrylic shell of all one piece that fits on top of it. They do offer cases with doors if that's what will work best for you.

I've gotten five cases from them, all the basic "acrylic shell that sits on the base" type, as well as one display case with a door and shelves inside for smaller objects.

Eh, pics are thousands of words and all that, so here's a couple of quick (horrible) pics of one of the cases I bought from them:

(one with flash on and one with it off, so you can see the case itself in at least one of them) This case here is about 9 inches deep, 16 inches wide, and 10 inches high.

I can't stress enough that having cases built to your specifications is more expensive than just getting an already made case that will work "well enough". Also, I bought cases like this when I was just starting collecting, because I thought I would just buy a few figures and then stop. (pause for violent laughter from all the readers) Later on, I realized that with additional figures, the large display cases like the ones from Ikea are far more cost efficient. I'm only going on and on about this in case (puns always intended) it will prevent someone making the same mistake I did.

Anyway, I hope this helps.

Are you flexible with your dimensions at all? I agree that an aquarium may work best and I imagine fully built 31" length display cases would be difficult to find and expensive to ship. Since your dimensions are so specific it may also be easier just to make it yourself with plexiglass, no? You can get sheets cut at any major hardware store (Home Depot, Lowes, etc.).

yaiba (4 mese/i fa) #21332063That's exactly what I was thinking. A terrarium or aquarium may fit the bill. They're not exactly cheap though.
It is a good idea to use an aquarium but don't use a second handed one. The dimensions you mentioned are very difficult to find (rarely used) in case of a cage. The cage that comes most close to what you want is the Pocher HK201. It is not a cheap cage but with 27 inch long, 14 inches high and 11 inches depht it is a serious alternative. Besides that there is also the option for custom made and that is probably more expencive than the Pocher.
Back to the aquarium. The kind of aquarium that comes the closest is when you search for a Marina 96 liter aquarium. These Marina 96 Liter has the sizes of 31.5 inch by 15.7 inch high and 12 inches depth. prices varies.
Hope it is helpfull.

This site www.collectingw... has many different acrylic cases and stands. Perhaps you can find something there that will fit your needs.

A more expensive option is www.casesforcol... where you can order a case to your exact size specifications.

I've ordered from both, and never had a problem with their products or service, for whatever that's worth.
