|The bust, I mean, dust is a real challenge with mixed|
For the plastic and poly resin figures, clean-up is easy. A little warm water and air drying is enough to bring the figure back to it's dust-free state. However, when it comes to mixed media statues (figures that combine plastic, polystone, and, in some cases, fabric) it becomes a real issue.
When I had Morrigan (Darkstalkers) on display I was constantly blowing dust off the leggings until my wife asked me if I wanted to be alone. Currently the issue is present with M. Bison.
This has led me to start designs on a lighted display shelf. But it has also pushed me to look for other enclosed display options. The first one I found is available on Sideshow Collectibles site -- actually, there's three different sizes but the largest is probably best in my situation.
This is it here:

I'm sure that some DIY electrical work at our previous house provides many sleepless nights for the professional electrician that "cleaned-up" that job.
But I'm not sure if such a display case is the way to go only because I'd have to find a piece of real estate to put it on. That's why I'm leaning toward a display cabinet, which will offer adjustable shelves and will be based on a modification of something that already exists rather than trying to assemble it myself. It won't keep the dust out permanently -- it won't be air-tight -- but it will cut down on the amount of dusting.
If I do finally start building the case, I'll be documenting the process right here.
