That dice case is spiffy! But is the case only the clear part? Did you add all the black areas?
I'm going to be honest and have an old man moment, but I put them there a while back and don't really recall, but I think it's a 4x4 plate on top of two black 2x4 bricks.
I got the cases I ordered from the Container Store and the tops are clear. They are "OK," but only just "OK." The top is tall enough that you either build up a base so that the "seam" between the top and bottom of the case does not overlap your figure (which is what I did, I'll try to get pictures later), or you use a small plate (maybe a collectible minifigure plate) and you get the seam across your minigure, which sucks for displaying.
The problem is I tried with my slightly customized elf holding an elven spear from BrickForge, and with the built up base the spear wouldn't fit. With the built up base, the regular elf with the bow barely fits (the elf is holding it up, he could hold it at a lower angle). So... they are probably not a great choice for a lot of figures, but are great for things like chromed or special figures without large accessories.
Perhaps the next size up would be better... 60380. The largest size from that Container Store page
could hold a decent small MOC... 10x10 at least (EDIT: except the bigger the container, the taller the lid... annoying).
