I agree, very cool looking but they are way too small and way too expensive. You could have something made and paint it yourself for probably half that.

nothing better than spending hundreds of dollars on a product with vague photos and no mention of materials, weight, mounting options, or warranty. :?

Looks fun though.

I love these and have the same apprehensions others do. Still, I love that Hall of Justice and it is very tempting to say the least. Wish they would do a Hall of Doom(Is that right?) to put the baddies in. Who knows, maybe I can hire someone or talk to my brother in law and see if he can make something similar when my room is finished.

Sticker shocked much?

I mean wow! Really? Is that USD? Damn those copy right leasing licenses they are getting expensive every year just to slap a logo on it like DCU or MARVEL or STAR WARS.

You can by a shadow box, where? Hobby Lobby. Make the figure shelf attachment yourself. Pimp out the outer casing and bam just like the one in the picture.

Very nice looking but cannot justify the price. I spent about $140 on materials for a 7 foot by 7 foot display case that Im currently building. But if I had the cash flow Id have one of each of these cabinets full of every figure :)

I don't even wanna know what the shipping price would be, I'm sure it is ridiculous.

One day when I have the time and more importantly, the space (no pun intended), I am going to make my display for my 1/18 scale Trek figures, which I notice was conspicuously absent from their selection options. What I want is for each shelf to look like the Enterprise corridor from TMP, so that it looks like a cross section of the ship. That display more than any other I really want.

These are so awesome, I drool every time I look at them. I love the ones for the Vintage Star Wars figures. But alas, I'm not handy so actually getting the thing on the wall would be a problem and I'd need to win a lottery to be able to justify those prices for a single display case :(

Yeah I love the Hall of Justice display but ouch on those prices! I'd like to keep tabs on that link and see how long they stay in business.

Kind of reminds me of a topic on another board where people will gladly buy a $300 toy but will buy a $30 bookshelf from Kmart to display it in. While I don't do the $30 bookshelf (all the time, LOL) I think these displays are way too far the other extreme.

This is why I like the theatre arts class I took. How it looks is irrelevant to what it is made of.

These cabinets, while awesome looking, are way too overpriced to justify the purchase. I would much rather hunt down Ikea Bertbies for my JLU collection.

Aren't these hand made and not massed produced? If so, I can kind of understand the cost. Just like cosplay, too rich for my blood, but I can't fault them if the skill matches cost.
