What is the best way to organize a large bucket full of minifigures? I need a way to quickly be able to find them, see how many of each type I had, and keep them from losing their parts and pieces. I'd looked at many people's minifigure display projects using wooden frames, custom made Lego cases (often using baseplates glued to a wall mount), and even Lego's official display case. However, each of these required too much money, time, or space to fully display my 400+ collection of minifigures. After some experimentation, I put together my own display option which I hope will benefit other builders who can follow this model. Using 2 by X plates (2 x 6, 2 x 16, 2 x 8 etc) and double stacking them in an overlapping arrangement, I was able to build a light way minifigure display frame. I picked up a lot of the strings with bricks on the ends from the Kings Castle set from the last castle run. It was a simple enough build I put together a wall of several frames and grouped my minifigures by theme. This made it very apparent (for planning purposes) how many of each theme I could muster to my castle armies or my pirate invasions. These work fairly well but I have found a few problems: I quickly ran out of plates to make more and now I won't be building anything requiring lots more plates For those people who are strictly into collecting, this isn't enclosed so the minifigures will get dusty over time I have a bunch of mismatching frames (black, grey, and dark grey). I have a couple more pictures here on my project page if you are interested. There I show how some of the minifigures with dresses or abnormal legs can also be displayed this way. All that being said, what do you think? Any suggestions? Why would you build a few of these over the enclosed versions or would you?
