MugenTenshinFRD (2 months ago) #19781273Great Saber collection! I like how the Saber on top has a seperate light source too. Reminds me that I still need a ton of Saber figures. :P
Those lighting strips look nice, but a bit thick. What are they? Perhaps for this picture, you could have turned on the top light spots too, but it still turned out nicely.


Thanks! For lighting, I used these: [ext link ]
(Modular Angled LED Under Cabinet Light by Environmentallights.com)

They are certainly a bit more bulky than standard strip lighting, but there was no way to get around that if I wanted to have an angled light. Lighting from straight overhead tends to not give you as much coverage on the figure (the light just falls on the top of the figure) while lighting from the front would require putting strip lights on the doors, which would be pretty obstructive. I went with these so I could get a nice bit of coverage from top and a bit more to the front.

The very top of the display does not actually have any lights in it. I used the filler plastic to keep the dust out. I may put a light in the top at some point, but honestly, the angled strip lights work out pretty well for my tastes and it doesn't really feel like I need more light (and heat!) in the cabinets.

Aurora08 (2 months ago) #19781162This is actually my dream once. But everybody in the household disagrees...

That must be amazingly frustrating! I know that for me, when I was growing up, my collecting ended up in the closet if I couldn't fit it on a bookshelf in the bedroom I shared with my brother. I pray you get to a point where you can have a space of your own where you can display whatever you like!

greatlandstander (2 months ago) #19779266omg i love it. Your setup is so clean and nice, really like what you did with your lighting. Really hope to get that Aniplex Saber on the top left some day. Saber.

I am extremely pleased with that Aniplex Saber. She's probably one of the best figures I've seen of Saber, right down to the subtle floral pattern on the front tabard. She's likely to be the second to last Saber (I have one on pre-order that's already paid for) that I will be able to buy in quite some time, as finances have dried up (and space is pretty much at the point where I have to rotate figures from the closet to the cases, like a museum!)

Aurora08 (2 months ago) #19781162But everybody in the household disagrees so I started selling almost everything.

hearing stuff like this makes me deeply sad.

NigeslSquire (2 months ago) #19774254The detolf shelves are advertised as holding up to 6kg or 13 pounds of weight. I'm not exactly sure how much the figure itself weighs, as the shipping weight for mine would have included the large box she comes in and the framed artwork. She definitely doesn't feel anywhere close to 9 lbs heavy (as listed on Amazon) and the other Alter figures are quite light. I don't think you should have any concerns about the weight for that setup, as I would think you would run out of room on a shelf before you exceeded that weight limit in PVC figures.
I've got some polystone statues from Gentle giant (like the Padme Snow Bunny figure [ext link ] ) that weigh more (Padme is about 10 lbs and feels way heavier than the Huke Saber), and they've sat on detolf shelves for years without any issue. I'm pretty careful with my collection, and the only thing I've had broken in a Detolf was my polystone Kimmy from Space Ace, and that's only because I dropped one of the picture frames I was trying to setup in the back of one of the cabinets, and it fell between the space between the back of the case and shelves, severing her hand off like a guillotine :( She was super expensive to replace, so I ended up having to do some "green stuff" repair and airbrushing, which looks OK'ish. Still kicking myself for that one >.<


That's reassuring, I think I can use my space a bit more effectively now! Guess I'll put the GSC re-release of Alter with her, they should look pretty nice together. And yeah, I know that feel- I broke my GSC Makise figure a few years back due to a freak accident and have yet to replace her... She's currently displayed in a way where if you don't rotate her (or know about the damage) that she looks perfectly fine.

katsudon (2 months ago) #19771673I was actually concerned that putting other scales in the same row as the Huke Saber Alter would have been too much weight wise so I'm glad to see that this isn't the case. Awesome setup by the way!

Amazing collection. Saber is my favorite character so this is my collection goal.
