Display Cases

Post  whacko on Wed Jun 15, 2011 2:36 am

I am looking for some display cases. I want something similar to the Detolf (mainly glass with black accents) and preferably in the sub-$100 price range. Does anyone know where I could acquire such an object? Smile

Before you all say "Buy a Detolf," just know that that was my plan however they seem to be in short supply. They are neither available on the IKEA website anymore, nor are they to be found in the IKEA retail location near me (near is a relative term). I have heard different stories from they have simply been discontinued, there was an explosion in one of the IKEA factories, etc etc..

But I need me some display cases. Cheap.

Man, like an ass I misread their(Ikea) stock on the site and drove 40 min to feel like a total jack ass. They even removed the floor display ones. I need to fucking match, dude at Ikea said they should be back within a month. Shit sucks, I had the whole day planned around changing up my displays and dusting. Just walked around Ikea high as shit in shock I drove 1.5 hours round trip for nothing!

Yeah, I'm in the same boat. I need something to put my newly acquired collection in and Ikea is being weird. My sis-in-law is checking at the Charlotte store for me, but I'm not holding out a lot of hope. I looked at what it would cost to have one shipped, when that was still an option yesterday, and it came back at around $320. Heellll no!

I'm interested to see what else is out there. The only other one that's close on Ikea's site is the Klingsbo: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/60128562
But it's not enclosed all the way down. I'm still contemplating it even though it's not ideal. Gotta get this stuff protected from the dust.

I was at Ikea last week, and the Detolf was on display. They only had the black, and the price went up to 64.99 I think. They were not as prominently featured as they had been in the past. They did appear to have them in stock, though.

Crazy. I'm hoping they'll either get them back in stock at a store I have access to, or come up with a new equivalent. Especially since they don't have a ship to store option.

Yes. But it looks deeper than a Billy to me. Could be an optical illusion.

I think it's the risers that makes it look deeper than usual.

I was hoping to find something with glass all around, or at least on 3 sides. I was at IKEA and the cost of their "Build your own storage" units like the Billy was incredibly high compared to the Detolfs.

I was sorely tempted to get a KLINGSBO but I just couldn't get past the fucking wire flowers built into the bottom of the display. Plus it was twice as much as a Detolf. However it IS glass all the way around, and enclosed on the top and bottom, or at least the floor unit at the IKEA store was.

Yep, Ikea. I think it was a little over $200 for everything. That's because of all the glass though, it added up real quick. I think the actual cabinet was around $70.

It's about 2 detolfs wide and more than a foot taller. I love it. And detolfs have gone up in price.

The floor unit detolf at my semi-local IKEA had a $65 price tag on it.
Not that you could actually buy one. So they are still pretty reasonably priced.

I'm really tempted by the Klingsbo, especially since the shelves look closer together than the Detolf. Tallest figure I've got is only 9". If I do, I'll probably just cut a piece of MDF and spray it black to put over the wire work.

The Billy is nice in person, Roto has their Kaiju in Billy cases, I believe. The Detolfs used to be 59.99, so they went up a little. Still significantly less expensive than the Billy.
