Is there anywhere you can direct me / our other orderers who are in a hard place.
Yea, I wouldn't buy those IKEA display cases. They are small and cheap looking, plus the glass shelves are pretty thin. (Can't hold weight)

I've bought 5 nice jewelry display cases over the years off people on Craigslist. Two of my cases were $2800 new when the person bought them retail and I got them for $300 each, because I know how to haggle. They have all glass sides, (no ugly wood) thick 3/4" adjustable shelves, lights and a lock & key.

You got lucky man, no luck Iím my area. Iíll keep looking.
The one I ordered doesnít have glass shelves, the PAX, the biggest they sell. They are solid wood. I plan to use a sheet of lexan, plexiglass or similar, but by the time I pay for this and and the plastic Iíll be well over 300. Still not bad I guess. I have to check out what I can do. I bought this cabinet before I bought the Alita bust. This cabinet wonít fit that unfortunately. Itís not deep enough, itís off by like 1.725 inches.

That's a bummer it won't fit man. Yea, you're not going to find a good one the 1st day you look on there, but keep looking once a week or so and one will pop up eventually. I'm lucky, but not that lucky. They do come up occasionally. Search for: Glass Display Case or Glass Display Curio. Lot's of stores are closing out of business these days.

I personally like the one's that are all glass with no frames on the sides, like the common wooden typical display cabinets. Frames on them (wood) obstructs your viewing angles, especially when standing from the side.

Good Luck,

Paint job is definitely not inspired by 1987 Predator. It's more brownish color. That's why they call it Cover Art Predator.

Awesome photo! That Biomask looks great.

I've been switching up all of my portraits since I got it. Such a fun piece!

In Xeno's vid the head looks more tilted/angled than some of the pics. Has there been a consensus about the angle of the head yet?

I'm waiting for the IS JH reveal to kinda make a decision on this. The 1/3 I don't really have the space for, or want to pay the price it will prolly be.

The head angle depends on how you position the dreads. They're rubbery and can be manipulated. You really have to work them in to get the head in the intended position.

Are the dreads fragile, since you have to work them in to get the head in the right angle?
