1diorama - Custom furniture from 1:1 item Empty Custom furniture from 1:1 item on Sat Apr 21, 2018 11:46 pm

A few days ago I inquired about posting a repurposed 1:1 item in another thread, at that time I was thinking just a couple of photos
a before and after of after of my display case then later I thought I would just to wait and take some new photos of it when I update Ada's
office someday but like GF said "as others could presumably get ideas by seeing what you did with that jewelry case" so I thought I would
post the whole series here.

Ada's newest piece of furniture a display case for her DC Comics figures & weapons. An old jewelry box that I found at a second hand store for $15.00.

The cabinet all finished and ready to go.

Introducing Mercy Dante, Ada's Second in Command, Mercy is a strange name for her because she will never show any.

I remember this. So cool. Love that your 1/6 have "1/6 figures" of their own.

Nice! I've seen in person jewelry cases that would almost work for a wardrobe, from the front, but the depth would overcrowd the scene. You found a winner! Even the feet are in scale. This looks great with the mini figs inside. I still need to find a shelf for my 1/6 display Nano Metalfigs. What figs are the even smaller ones on the top shelf?

Your welcome and Thank you for encouraging me to post it, as I recall I was inspired by someone else's work a few years ago over at OSW.

You know I think I was inspired by someone else's 1/6 figures having their own figures.

I literally looked at thousands of jewelry boxes on eBay and like you said the depth would overcrowd the scene, I think I lucked out when I
found this one, I know exactly what you mean about the Nano Metalfigs there great and I'm now planning to replace the top shelf mini
figures with the Nano Metalfigs now. I there is one. (see photo below) Here is a early preview of a upcoming
photo shoot.

Update: there is one that comes up to the elbow of a Mighty Mines figure (top shelf) but it's a game piece from Heroclix.

Here she is with 1/6 Wonder Woman. (after I very carefully pried the base off)

What a great find! It look perfect with the shelves in there. And I agree with you, Heroclix make perfect scale figures for your figures.

The cabinet looks quite perfect, it's as good as it gets in using a 1:1 jewelry cabinet for 1:6 totally credibly without any dimension seeming off.

Heroclix are great.  Don't forget their other limited but very fun possible 1:6 purpose, putting Ant-Man or the Wasp on Iron's shoulder, or the Atom with DC figures, things like that.

As you've done here Badwolf, Nano Mini Metalfigs are great too for the purpose of giving 1:6 figures their own toys to own.  For those not in the know they also make Harry Potter, WWE and Disney characters.  As far as DC goes, you're gonna wanna get one more Badwolf if you come across it.  I'm an idiot because I only bought one and left a spare behind, and haven't seen one since.  Plus twice an idiot, because I've since misplaced it, but I do have it somewhere.  I'm talking about my favorite Nano Mini Metalfig being quite specifically a '66 Adam West Batman.  That one only comes as a single, it isn't found in the six-packs.

Thank you, that a cool idea with the Heroclix figures, thanks for the heads up on the Nano Metalfigs Classic TV Batman, I looked at my collection
last night and I have 4 other Batman figures but not that one and I think there is still another WW figure I'm still looking for too.

You gave me a timely reminder about the Nano Metalfig minis.  I only have a few and I probably let some good ones get away.  I just realized their website has a checklist:  here it is showing that very distinctive Adam West Batman  http://metalsdiecast.com/wp-content/uploads/NanoMetalfigs-DC-w2-Batman-ClassicTVSeries-01-1030x687.jpg  Unlike 1/6 figures, they don't need to reuse a standard body for cost savings, so this Batman is actually slightly chubby.  I wouldn't mind having 3 of him -- one in package, one out of package, and here's the good part, I'd love to print out a 1/6 scale 1967 IDEAL Captain Action Batman package and put him inside.

What's the WW you're looking for, so I can keep an eye out?  The selection in Canada seems limited (lots on the web site that I've never seen) but you never know.

that's a pretty cool concept - miniature within miniature world. The miniature figures are what, 1/36th?

Thanks for keeping a look out for the WW DC38, here are some newer photos of the Nano Metalfigs, I just updated the photos and hopefully these photos are a little better quality, I still need to buy a new lens. I hope you can still figure out who some of them are?

That’s quite the little army. I’m pretty sure I’m able to identify most of them except the guy in the front row middle next to Luther (with the orange sphere).

Plenty of toys for your ladies to play with when you’re not looking (much like their seruptitious use of your computer).

Thank you, I finally found him (his name) that's Marvel Green Goblin, I had him on the wrong shelf he should have been on the top with the other Marvel figures.

Yep they know how to play.

Ohh. Yeah. Now I see it. I guess that was why I was confused. I thought at first he might be another member of the Green Lantern Corps, but the orange ball was throwing me.

Thanks for the display. It's also useful because I was wondering if their website http://metalsdiecast.com was a complete list, and it looks like all those in your set (and all that I remember seeing at the store) are included on the website. It's kind of overkill too -- they have a 7 picture + 1 video portfolio for every $1, non-movable figure.

When I did the photo shoot I was think he was a DC Comics characters instead of Marvel.

Your welcome and thanks for the link, now looking back on that photo shoot I really should have just used one shelf (second) and 9 figures
at a time.

It takes me half a day to make a mini bookcase so I started looking around for something that was premade and not too expensive. I think these bamboo cutlery trays will do the job.

My plan is to turn it on its side and to glue a shelf in the vertical void. Should turn out ok.

One of my daughter's figures. She collects Monster High and Bratz. I thought it was a punk girl but apparently it's a boy.
