New Collector Looking For Some Tips

I'm very new to starting my own collection and only have a few pieces, my pride and joy is an Exclusive Iron Spider-man by Sideshow with the Cap shield and Iron Man helmet on the base. I'm currently looking for display cases and haven't had much luck at places I've looked at (Ikea, a few local furniture stores, etc.) finding a nice glass display case ideally with a lock and top lighting. My price range isn't that high for a case either, but it would be nice to find something for price comparison which I've been unable to do. The closest thing I found to what I wanted was at IKEA but it had a 13 lb weight limit per shelf and that's just not going to cut it. Plus I don't think it's big enough to shelve the shear size of the iron spider-man piece.

I was hoping to get a few hints from the collector pros about getting/setting up a display or a few hints to collecting that may help a new guy out.

I will try and get some pictures up of my somewhat small collection of pieces in the next few days.

If you are going to go with Glass Cubes here is a good link for you.

I have the 16" x 16" for Full Size statues.
They are very strong, and have Bowen Juggy on the top with no worries.

Also easy to put together, and priced well.

Good luck with whatever you do.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.
