850423 LEGO Minifigure Display w/ Space Figure set

Overall, this is a nice idea I'm sure some people would like, but for me it just seems like it would be an inefficient alternative to a real display case. I haven't had any huge desire to display my minifigure collection anyway, but if I did want to do so I don't think I'd be likely to settle for this.

It reminds me of some old-style packages, when certain elements in a set would be showcased by showing them in little form-fitted depressions in a clear plastic tray over the rest of the contents. Sometimes those would include preassembled minifigures and perhaps other submodels, but the parts weren't glued. I'd guess this is like those.
If anyone is planning to get these but is worried about dust, you could just get some trans-clear 1x6x5 panels from PAB or bricklink (possibly along with some white 1x6 bricks to fill the complete height of one display module), but it's still annoying that you have to get these separately.

Minifigure parts often were, and a few much older train sets came with whole train cars assembled, as seen here and here. Of course those are unusual cases, but do show there's some precedent for such things.
Anyway, I guess we'll know soon enough whether these parts are glued. I'm guessing not, but I await confirmation.
