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.

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.

I was thinking along these same lines to hide the wires.
Another reason I don't like the KLINGSBO is that the legs flair out at the bottom, which would make it hard to put several cases next to each other in a small space. I also wasn't happy with the $130 (twice the cost of the Detolf) price tag, but if the Detolf is really gone I might end up getting a couple of KLINGSBO's

I guess I'm happy that I already have 4 detolfs. Not sure I'll need any more then that.

It's kind of in flux, at the moment. I've been trying to get around to putting up new shelves, because I'm running out of floor space. In the event I get a few more detolfs I'll set a few up horizontally on top of the others.

These are shitty iPhone pictures, sorry. When it's finished I'll take some nicer ones. Not the whole collection, but just a couple shots.

Wow - nice setup!

BTW, I have 3 empty Detolfs that I want to sell. 2 black and 1 white. I probably will have to craigslist them, but if anyone lives in or close to NC you could come pick them up - in the mountains about 2 hours from Charlotte.

I'm sure they're just sold out. I can't imagine they would discontinue such a popular item.

Yeah I'm with you on that. I think a lot of people are under that impression because they're sold out at a lot of locations, but that's just Ikea. The hot items go FAST, and sometimes it just takes a while for them to restock.

I own detolfs that I purchased from people who were moving, but I've never really bought anything from IKEA before. I see that they have a Billy with glass door, but it's not clear like yours. The one on the website has some art on it. Can you request clear glass at IKEA?

I'm already headed to Ikea to get the Detolf, but what to you guys use to prop up the figures that are hidden behind others in the back - similar to what this case does:

All of my risers are from 1 laser creations on ebay. Really nice quality and they have pretty much any size and shape you can think of. Prices are great too. I think they might even take custom requests.
