Looks good! Bet you cannot wait to get a new display cabinet.

A conclusion is simply the place where you got tired of thinking.

I had plans, but they fell through. I'd like to do it right than do it, and then re do it. Someday though.

Check Craigslist from time to time for used Ikea stuff. I found 2 of my Detolfs on there and paid $40 for 2 of them.

Thanks for being nice about it. Some members here are sensitive about this subject. Not trying to offend anyone as I get into this hobby.

I understand completely. When I started I actually had a few statues on top of my TV.....an old picture tube one. I had them all over the apartment wherever they would fit. Several were on top of the entertainment center. Wasn't until I bought a Detolf that I actually started to do a decent display.

Friendly suggestion, put some 1/4s on the bottom shelf and the smaller statues on top. Otherwise, there's much more weight up high -- wouldn't want the shelves to collapse or fall forward.

Glad you got DS Starfire, that's such a nice statue of her.

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.

The display is very stable and heavy. I could double the weight I have on them and still zero issue of collapse.

The main issue is height. The case is 48" with 12" slots so if a 1/4 is over that 24" it fills it completely. That is why Wonder Woman (BvS), Power Girl and Black Canary are there and the rest are on top. I do wish could count on standardized height more, but when you have 8" variation have to figure some aspects out.

Me too, I got her on sale and biggest surprise was height as she's bigger than I expected. I now have three Starfires and all of them are distinct and great.

You should pose Gal Gadot and Black Canary next to each other, that way it looks like Gadot is poking Black Canary's butt with her sword.

Apologies for my phone camera and lack of display. So excited to unbox her today had to take some quick pictures.

She is something to behold, until you see 1/3 in person the scale is hard to convey. She's massive and the pain job is top notch. Very easy to assemble with pieces shaped so can only go one place. Optional arms and head went on and off with no issue.













10/10, instantly one of my prized pieces. Iron Studios earned the large sum she commands.
