I'm looking for some creative ideas of how to display figs on a shelf, with a tiered effect. For as little cost as possible. I've seen some great methods, like the expandable spice rack, empty tape cases, and such, but with the amount of figs I have, those kind of ideas will easily run into the hundreds. So I'm wondering if any of you free-thinkers have any cheap ideas to getting that effect. No idea is too silly or weird. (like when I caw someone use empty cassette cases, I was like, DUH! wishing I hadn't thrown all those away !)

 

Thanks in advance!

IKEA has some shelf tiers for some of their various shelving/bookcase sets. These are a after-market accessory item they sell, and are about 2 feet long ( or maybe 28" or so), about 4-5" tall and about 3-4" deep. They have a solid fronting, and top, and are made of a laminated particle board. I THINK they are about $15 each, maybe less.

If you are talking about 1 1/2th scale figures ( 6"-ish ML or DCUC) then you can put about 20 -30 loose figures on the tier, and the same or more in front.

 

I like them because they allow me to lean heavier, unstable figures against the fronting, and still have enough clearance to display the figures up on the tier.

These work great with 6" figs. Kinda pricey tho. I managed to get some when they were on sale for $5 at walmart.

I got one of these for my X-men display:

I think it was a Target exclusive. i got it for like $10. The steps are perfect for 6" figs.

I LOVED those, but haven't been able to find them at IKEA lately, so I bought some of their very cheap CD holders and just turn those upside down. They aren't as long as the shelf tiers, but they allow me to put the C&Cs in the space between the CD holder and the bookcase.
