Blazon Display Cases for 3 3/4" figures (G.I. Joe)

Last month at the San Jose Big Wow! Comic book convention I spotted nice display cases for 3 3/4" figures. By Blazon Displays, these cases were a lot more economical than others I have seen and easy to set-up. Having just moved, with less place to display my collection, these were the perfect solution to show off modest collection attractively and at a reasonable price.

I ended up buying the basic display case, as shown ($59.99). A step up from this is the same case but with a motion-sensitive light at the top ($69.99). Finally, a 3rd option comes with the light and a colored backdrop ($79.99).

The display cases are sturdy but very lightweight. Made out of acrylic and plastic with magnets that keep the door close, they include two shelves that you can remove and adjust as needed. You can fit 27-30 3 3/4" figures, depending on how tightly you want to place them. To attach it to the wall, there are two slots on the back where nails/hangers slip in. Overall, easy to mount, and easy to add or remove figures.

I'm very happy with how these cases look and ended up buying another case afterwards so that I could have one case dedicated to Joe and one to Cobra. It was pretty difficult pairing my collection to about 60, but at least now my Joes are displayed in a nice way and kept dust-free.

Besides the display cases, Blazon Displays has another product which is inexpensive and unique. "Magnaclipz" are hooks with magnets on the end that attach to your action figures. You can place them on your fridge or purchase their magnetic display boards and strips and attach them to your wall. Also worth checking out.
