    I didn't know that. That sucks! Sounds like a custom cabinet job is needed.

    i would consider it a negligible amount; it's no chore to dust off the insides every few weeks.

    I've yet to read a story about a Detolf collapse that wasn't due to either incorrect construction or grossly overloading a shelf.
    ok, I stand correct. Man, those pictures were scarry though!

    yeah--right after i first put them up, the occasional <klonk> as one of glass shelves vibrated against one of the walls would give me a heart attack.

    they are pretty stable, though. and each shelf does hold ~13 lb, so it's good for easily 3 FS/shelf, unless they're really huge or heavy.

    i haven't seen--short of gonzo custom rooms--a cheaper & more effective way to display these easily & safely.

    the cubes get really pricey if you elect for bigger than 12x12 & they don't have a front to keep out dust; more "furniture-y" cases obstruct too much, imo, or don't give the statues room enough for interesting displays (shelves are too shallow, too close together, etc).

    there're a few diff't collections that have been posted here & other places. i think a collector called "TigerTank" has a GREAT set-up using detolfs as well as other cases, that includes comics covers in a great, effective way, too.
