Hi Bob,
I got the frames at Ikea several years ago, but I am sure they have similar styles today.  Some come with Plexiglass and others with real glass.  I have both but generally I think the larger ones are Plexi.
The piano hinge is the key thing to keep the frame straight with the pressure spread out evenly for the whole upright side of the frame.  The back of the shadowbox is the same piece of press board that came with the frame.  I left it white, but you could paint it any color you like.
You can also make the box deeper to accommodate different styles of figures.  I have a couple that are only one to two inches deep, others that are up to four inches.

I've recently started paring back my modern figure collection in order to focus on finishing my loose run of vintage SW figures. Here's some older photos of my IKEA cabinet devoted to these, taken just after I installed an LED lighting system. The collection has grown a bit since then, I need to buy some more acrylic display boxes!

Most impressive Kev!  :love0030:
I hear that imitation is the best form of flattery.
You should feel flattered Kev because I'm going to copy the sh_t out of your display setup for my growing original loose collection.  :)

Do those display boxes come with the peg bases in them, or at they separate?
