|Finding good ways to display your figures is always tough. Here's
a couple products that can be found at your local Bed, Bath and Beyond
store for a very reasonable price, that will greatly enhance your shelf
The first one is called the 'low profile' Expand-A-Shelf. It's
manufactured by a company called Neat Things!, with a website at:
the left you'll see a couple pictures displaying Star Wars figures with
The neat thing about this shelf, is it's ability to expand from about
14" to 28", fitting most standard bookcase shelves. At a price of $7.99, it's an exceptional value, and I
give it an easy ****. There are other sizes available as well (and
other prices, of course), and some have black strips along each
shelf. I prefer the low profile version, since the figures are not
that tall themselves.
|Up next is an acrylic version, manufactured by USAcrylic. More
aesthetically pleasing, it does not expand but is fixed at 18"
wide. This will work well for most bookcases, but lacks the
versatility of the previous model. The acrylic is slightly more
expensive - the one pictured here cost $9.99.
However, you can't say enough about the good looks of acrylic. If
you have other acrylic cases in your display, this piece will be an
excellent addition. Another easy ****.
I have only found the acrylic versions at the actual store - for online
buying info on the white plastic, expandable ones, see below.
Bed, Bath and Beyond also had a very nice, wooden version, at
$14.99. This may fit in with your decor better. I suggest
stopping by the store and wandering around for awhile - they have quite a
number of interesting items that may spice up your displays!
Dimensions - 8.5" deep, 3.5" tall, 18"
As I stated earlier, these are available at any Bed, Bath and Beyond
store or at their online site:
Or you can buy the white Expand-A-Shelf directly from the manufacturer:
Connie Basham reports you can also find these at many Walmart and Kmart
stores, in their housewares department. They may even be cheaper -
