Kind of a side question but do you guys prefer white or warm light for your statues?

I prefer warm... Bright white (+3k) seems to change the color pallet too much imo...

Curious, with the support beam you put under the shelf, do you think it would be safe to put the Hush Superman on a higher shelf? Or is it too risky? Would the upgraded parts hold and keep the shelf from bowing or breaking?

These are the shelves for the PAX:

I then bought these to put under the shelves for reinforcement and to prevent bowing (you can spray paint them black to blend in better):

These are the lights:

You will need other components to hook the lights up that are sold on the site as well. It depends on whether you want remote control or to turn them on manually. Just scroll down and read what other components are needed.

These are the sliding door frames I bought. You just don't use the middle brackets:

Then I had acrylic sheets cut to put inside the frames. The exact measurements for mine were: 39.625 inches wide X 77 inches tall X 0.187 inches thick (go with 0.062 tolerance which is standard)

You can order the acrylic sheets here if you don't have a local place in town, but any cabinet or glass place should be able to do them for you:

Sorry to bump but looking for these supports if anyone knows what they are? They link doesn't work and I can't seem to find something similar in the designer.

I'm really surprised at the replies you got to this question. I have both warm and cool white lights around my home. Cool white most definitely brings out the truest representation of the colors on the statue. I mean, warm white is in fact yellow (put a white piece of paper under both) so I'm not sure in what world warm white light gives better colors on your statues.

I definitely prefer warm white when it doubles as ambient room lighting (for example I tend to use cool white inside my cabinets, and warm white on the tops of my cabinets).
