How do you display your figures?

Posted in Action Figure Chatter

Hi

I am getting back into figures after selling 80% of my collection about 10 years ago. I always kept my favorites.
I am not worried about displaying loose figures, these are easy to display on shelves or in glass cabinets. I am more concerned about the carded ones. I have a non heated/non air conditioned basement and a small spare bedroom to work with in my home.
I was thinking about getting some sort of panels and place them on the walls and the carded figures on those. I would have to rotate them by series on a weekly or monthly basis, as I keep them in plastic bins in my basement.
What do you all do, I can't put nails on pins directly in my walls, my wife would kill me.LOL!

Any pics and ideas are welcome.

By the way I am first and foremost in horror/sci-fi/fantasy figures but I also do some super heroes when they appeal to me. Nothing cartoonish or kiddish in my collection.

Thanks a lot

Patrick

Hi

Thanks for the 2 answers so far. My basement isn't finished and is really packed with stuff, it's good to keep stuff in bins but not to display.
I like the pegboard idea, I will look at them at my local hardware stores.

Thanks so much

Patrick

If you plan to keep them on the card to display and don't want to nail/tack the wall to bits, look into pegboard. The have all kinds of pegs you can get and you can easily adjust them.

I don't keep mine in packages but I might have a suggestion. Is your basement finished or just stone slab? If it's finished or doesn't have any issues like flooding, I would consider displaying the collection in the basement. In general, basements don't vary too much in temperature due to being below ground, so exposure to extreme cold or extreme heat should be minimal.
