For Christmas this year Cole asked for some display cases to house his vast collection of LEGO Minifigures. We looked online, and at Target and found these cases, made by LEGO. My problem was that he had almost 100 minifigures that needed a home, and at $25-$30 to house just 16 Minifigures, I’d have to spend a small fortune for cases.
After doing a lot of research and taking a Minifigure to almost every store in town I discovered that something people regularly collect is shot glasses, and there just happens to be a case made for them AND they are almost the perfect size to hold LEGO Minifigures. I promptly ordered 3 of the shot glass display cases from Amazon and got to work transforming them into a perfect home for his Minifigures.
Cole decided a 4 x 2 LEGO plate would make the perfect base for his Minifigures, so he sorted and sifted through his collection and dug out as many as he could find. If you don’t have a ridiculous collection of extra bricks, or if you want all yours to be the same color, you can actually order some online.
The only other necessary tool you’ll need to make your LEGO Minifigure display a reality, is some super glue gel. I liked the Krazy Glue brand, but really you can use whatever you like. Just make sure you get the gel, because it’s so much easier to work with.
Glue one 2 x 4 LEGO plate to each cubby and allow to dry. You’ll want to make sure you sit the display case upright when you allow it to dry so the plates don’t slide around.
The shot glass display case holds 36 LEGO Minifigures and the total cost of the project was under $30, make it a much more cost efficient way to store your collectables.
