    what's weatherstripping?

    I'd open my windows on the other side of the room (to draw out dust + create airflow), move them all away from where they're displayed (so I can take advantage of the airflow) and dust them off one by one with an antistatic duster (prevents dust buildup on figures) before putting them back as and when they're dusted (so I don't accidentally transfer dust to a figure that's just been dusted). Taking care when dusting will prevent dust from being attracted for longer.

    I assume that if you run a fan on them 24/7 it'll work really well though lol

    I just use glass cabinet bookshelves from Ikea. They are sealed enough such that I never had real dust issues over 2 years I had them. Occassionally I may have to dust the black base stands on my figure but the dust is not bad at all (compared to not having glass doors).

    It's an expensive road to go down - but I think acrylic display cases are the best. I have one for Rin but it cost about £70 for just one figure. It's dark right now, but here she is safe and air tight from dust.

    However, the way is I see things now is this: life is too short (and expensive) so get a Detolf and see some dusting as an opportunity to see, handle and enjoy your figures.

    When I win the lottery, I plan to build a home with an entire wing devoted to my various collections. In this wing will be custom built display shelves, with very small built-in air ducts. An air pump and/or fan will pull in air through a series of filters that will remove the slightest dust particle, before the air is gently wafted into the display area, continuously creating a positive air pressure inside the case that pushes out all dust that threatens to intrude upon the pristine environment thus created.

    Sure, none of that is useful advice, but I wanted to babble nonsensically for a bit.

    Not perfect, but I pretty much sealed my display cases using cellular rubber (not entirely sure if that's the correct English term, here it is on Amazon.de. Appears to also be referred to as foam sealant tape or slight variations thereof).

    While this could not be used for all gaps between the glass sheets/wood, it's greatly reduced the amount of dust that gets into my display cases, even on the plates closer to the floor.
