It’s an otakus dilemma; now my collection is growing, how do I display my figures? Here is some inspiration for what to do with your figure collection.
A glass cabinet (sometimes known by the IKEA name of detolf) is the classic way to display a figure collection if you have the money and space. This fantastic example has taken it up a notch with the added LEDs, really making those figures pop!
Cabinets like this give you room to arrange your figures in any way you like and are great if you have a few statement pieces that require an extra special home.
If you don’t have room for a whole specialized cabinet, get creative with the space you have and put shelves in unused corners. Shelving around a desk is always popular; that way, you can admire your collection any time you want, and they will even brighten up the worst workday!
If that’s not possible, shelves can be built into any space you have, like in this amazing example of shelving built into the walls.
When you have shelves or a cabinet set up ready for figures, you may need risers to help display your collection. This photo is a brilliant example of utilizing risers to see a whole collection at once effortlessly.
Risers come in many forms, from tiered steps to individual stands. Experiment with how your collection looks with different types!
