Hey guys, I was wanting to buy a display case for my recently purchased attakus oola. Im planning on buying it from "cases for collectibles". I have a couple of questions and really hope someone can help.

#1 What size should I go with. I know that the depth will be 12" and the width will be 14" The height im not sure about.
Her arm reaches a height of 15 1/2 inches. Should I go with a case 16" tall leaving only a half inch between her extended arm and the top of the case or go with the next size up which is 18" tall and leave a space of 2 1/2" inches between the tip of her finger to the top of the case.

My second question is for those who have bought the cases. I have heard they are good but just wanted your opinion about the quality of their acrylic cases.

I would really really appreciate any advise.
Thanks

here is a pic.
I sectioned off a piece of a glass table to measure 12x14 to give an idea of what the dimensions would be. just unsure about the height. Im guess 18" tall instead of 16"
just curious how others measured their cases and if I should go with 16" tall or 18" tall.

Hi TK,

I'm not sure what height I'd recommend, but I just wanted to throw in my two cents on cases for collectibles. I bought a case for my Vader helmet from them, and it is superb. Excellent quality acrylic, and the packaging was stellar. I can't recommend them highly enough. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

In fact, I actually need to get another case ordered from them for my "Duel of the Fates" display; your post reminded me to get off my lazy keester and grab some measurements so I can order it. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

Forgot to say, congrats on the Oola! Glad to see you were able to pick her up - a collection centerpiece for sure. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif
