My Peecol Display Case

Post by sinkFLsink » Thu Nov 01, 2007 7:11 pm

So I'm not much for playing with the Peecols, but I want to display them. I was looking for a case or shadowbox frame that would work best and wasn't having any luck. By chance I was walking through the kitchen section at Target and saw these bamboo utensil drawer organizers. A perfect fit!!! The black area is obviously just a shadow.

After all the trials I've had in the past trying to find ready solutions for displaying Dunnies and Qees, I decided to build my Peecol display from PixelBlocks. Totally modular, gets that pixel association in there and is unbelievable when backlit, like stained glass.

The downside? Not the most money-efficient way to go (I think I've used about 8000 so far, eep!). But it's gonna be awesome. :P

Not familiar with PixelBlocks? http://www.pixelblocks.com

The cases you found might work nicely with the Peecols standing on their respective boxes too. If the boxes are backward, you could effectively show both sides of the figure, front and back. That'd be pretty tight.

LOL, well I had measured the box dimensions before I went looking for a shelf/frame. So I just had the measurements with me and it looked about right. It seriously fits so well.

cool shelf. you could put all the bottoms next to each other in the space where nuke is then all the tops could go above on top of the shadow box. could even mix and match for fun...

would love to see a pic of the pixelblocks shelving, mark. sounds awesome
