One of the only other areas of Star Wars that I’ve always loved is the range of vintage action figures. So I recently dug out my collection from the loft and thought about a way to display them that didn’t dominate the house. Within a few days I found a “shabby chic”, glass fronted case with little compartments. Just enough to display twenty or so of the little fellas. So I took the risk they would fit and placed a £25 bid. A while later it arrived so I selected some figures and purchased some brightly coloured card from the local stationary shop. I then combined the three elements to create a pretty cool looking, Empire Strikes back cardback inspired display case.
I’ve had quite a lot of positive feedback, so I contacted the guy I bought the plain case from to ask where he got it. His reply – “I have no idea, I’ve had it in the garage for years”. So the only advice I can give is – keep your eyes on ebay for something similar.
