Where can I buy Barbie and Sideshow 12" sized acrylic cases with UV protection?

View previous topic View next topic Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]

Looked around a bunch and cant find anywhere that sells opened Barbie sized acrylic cases with UV protection. I have quite a few Barbie and Sideshow toys that I got autographed and would like to display. The dolls are a Supergirl custom Barbie with Laura Vandervoorts head, Zoe Saldana signed Star Trek Barbie, Sideshow Spike, Xander and Oz from Buffy, Lois Lane Kate Bosworth signed barbie and a pamela voorhees Betsy Palmer signed Sideshow action figure.

I got them all signed on the figure and have the boxes but want to display them opened. They are all 12" Sideshow figures and standard Barbie sized figures. I want UV holders like the grading company has but they didnt have Barbie and Sideshow sizes listed and custom ones were like $60. I also found Barbie cases on Ebay but they dont have UV protection and I really wanted those cases for displaying these figures. If someone could point me to a website that specializes in action figure cases that would be great.

Anytime you add the UV protection factor to a display case, the price is going to jump. Add in the size of the display, more than likely 4"X4"X12", and the case is going to be costly. The $60 custom case you mentioned seems to be a good deal factoring in all the above features.

One thing I can recommend if you want to go the DIY route is Window Film. It comes in plastic sheets of varying sizes, can be cut to fit, and offers the UV protection you want. It can be found at most hardware stores.

I know this isn't the info you were looking for, but I hope it helps.

Im just going to get regular acrylic cases for them off Ebay I guess. I dont think I really need to worry about the uv since the figures are out of the package and I would imagine the cardboard is what fades. That and the plastic turns yellow. Cant pay several times as much as the toys cost for display holders.
