It's amazing how something that starts so small gets so big. :D
My first JLU figure was the Starman single. It quickly went downhill from there.
Here is an early shot of my first display:

By 2007 it looked like this:

Here is a mash up of what it looked like just before I pulled the plug on it, because I thought it looked to crowded and was tired of the domino effect

But thanks to this form, this is what my collection looks like today:

(The sad part was I thought I could get away with two Bertbys, but I had to go for three :) Hopefully the madness will stop there :oops: )

That's an awesome collection you have there. Where on Earth did you get those display cases? I must have them.

Thanks!

They are called Bertby. They are from Ikea.

Awesome display there. Displaying JLU is a pain in the ass man. BTW what kind of stands are you using there?

Thanks Daniel & darth_helios.

Yeah, JLU is a pain to display. It's a whole lot better though with the stands. I actually think I like my collection better, now that I got the stands.

The stands are Kaiser from Collectingwarehouse.com

I swear by those Kaiser stands. Another member here recommended them to me and I haven't looked back since. I've been using them to replace the old JLU stands, which are only semi-functional at best. My only conundrum is whether to use black or white. I've already started with white, so I don't want to mix and match. But reksuh, your collection looks really good with the black Kaiser stands.

reksuh, the cabinets look great! I love seeing how different people group their JLU collections. Those shelves force you to choose just a few characters for each one. I've always had one shelf dedicated to the big seven and no one else get to hang out there. I broke that rule for the first time last night. Lobo crashed the party!

Thanks for the pics!

Thanks alcinde4! Yeah, I went for black, mainly because it matched the display cases. I wouldn't mix & match either.
Hey Dan, my Lobo just shipped today. I think that he will be getting his own shelf for the time being when he gets here :D

Now for some more random shelf pics!
