MinifiguresDisplay has been manufacturing high quality display solutions for some years and now offers a wide variety of frame sizes, colours and backing cards to meet all of your minifig display needs.
Recently the company offered to send me one of their newest offerings, a 105-figure display case, to review. I wanted to fill it with something before doing so and I've just made up my mind what to put in it: Every Harry Potter minifigure from 2004 - 2011, i.e. the fleshies.
The frame is 52cm square and 5cm deep. It comes complete with a sheet of plexiglass, which is far more practical than glass when it comes to shipping them.
Unlike those from other manufacturers, which are often customised Ikea Ribba frames, those sold by MinifiguresDisplay are designed in Spain, and hand-made.
It comes in five parts which incudes a spacer that fits inside the frame to provide 3.7cm of clearance between the plexiglass and the backing card.
The one I've been sent has a black frame and black mounting slopes but a huge variety of other colour combinations are available.
Here's an image from the website:
The mounting slopes, which are genuine LEGO, are very neatly bonded to the backing card: there's no sign of glue or anything,...
...and they are in perfect alignment.
This 105-figure frame has 7 rows of 15 mounting points. If you're planning on putting CMF series in them, one with 7 rows of 16 is also available.
It was dead easy to affix the figures, the slopes are very securely held and none came off!
The end result looks great, and I even have space for some of the new figures at the bottom!
3.7cm enough depth for a 2x4 plate to be added on top of the slopes should you have any oversized figures to accommodate. There was certainly no problem fitting Hagrid in.
I case you're wondering about the order I've put them in, they are in chronological, then BrickLink minifigure number order.
The only issue I had, and it's not a fault of the frame whatsoever, is that peeling the protective film from the plexiglass leaves it with a static charge which seems to be attracting cat hairs!
I showed my wife and daughter: they were impressed by the frame but said I should have elected to put more colourful figures in it! I Now they mention it, they are nearly all browns and greys...
This particular frame costs £61.86 / £79.06 which sounds like a lot but this is a quality product that's finished to a high standard. If it helps get your valuable and attractive figures out of their plastic boxes and to somewhere dust-free where they can be seen and admired then I reckon it's money well spent.
As I say, there are dozens of variations available at MinifiguresDisplay, starting at about £25 for a 16-figure frame for CMFs, so go and take a look. If you're stuck for something to put in them, you'll also find minifigures for sale there as well.
The frame was supplied by the manufacturer for the purposes of this review, which is an expression of my own opinions. Brickset will not receive a commission on any orders placed via the links in the article.
