well, I will finally be getting a SW room when I move to my new house in May. My understanding is that Attakus statues are way to heavy for most glass display cases out there.

What does everyone use to show off their Attakus (and while we're at it PF Sideshow) stuff?

First off, congrats on the upcoming SW room. It was a relief to me to finally have one and get lots of stuff out of boxes.
Second, I don't think that statement is true about glass cases unless one were to buy a really crappy cabinet. Exception: Jabba and Emperor--these are REALLY heavy and I wouldn't try putting these on glass unless very thick. Here are two shots of my Attakus statues sitting on glass shelves:

Thanks. I found them in a local furniture store...I just checked the sales slip and they're listed as "PULASKI 20850 CURIO 33X14X81". For three of them it set me back $525.

Very nice display BenObi_70 http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/cool.gif

I like the mix and match of statues, busts and weapons.

3 for $525 - that's actually a good deal.....

That does look great BenObi_70! I'm not the biggest Maul fan, but that's a fine collection of DM stuff you have there too!

And I know that I've seen a handful of other collections on here using glass shelves for Attakus pieces. The weight limits given for such shelving are always really conservative... they're really more like guidelines anyways! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Has anyone ever displayed these in a Detolf cabinet? I'm planning to get a couple of Detolf cabinets next month and eventually pick up the Padme Attakus, but I can't find any information on how far apart the shelves are in the Detolf. Wondering if I'd be able to fit Padme on the bottom shelf or if I'd need to look into another way to display her -- which I may do anyway since I think this statue deserves much better than the bottom shelf. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

i have the attakus padme statue. its not very heavy at all. it could definatly fit in a detolf.

i have alot of attakus statues and display them on the top of some curio cabinets. the jabba/throne had to go on a large table. you can see them in my collection pics below.
