One of the many things I collect is the DC Superhero Figurines Collection made by a company in the UK called Eaglemoss. They make small scale figurines of all the heroes and villains from DC Comics. The figurines typically are painted lead miniatures, and they are usually around 3 3/4″ tall. They kind of look like really cool chess pieces… so much so, in fact, that Eaglemoss’s newest series of collectibles is actually a line of Batman chess pieces. I don’t plan to collect those, but I’m way deep into the regular figurines, and I’m going to try to log all of them with photos. So far I’ve only managed to shoot ten of the many figurines I have, but you can see those in my Flickr gallery.

Occasionally they release a larger-scale figurine, usually whenever they want to feature a bulky character or some kind of vehicle or prop. The newest one to hit stores is Clayface, the Batman villain. He’s still around the same height as the other little guys, but he’s definitely bulkier and came in a bigger box. Here’s his Wiki entry, if you’re not familiar with him. I photographed the Clayface figurine last night and stuck the pics up on my Flickr, but you can see lower res versions of the photos here.

I’m trying to figure out a good way to display these lead figurines but am not sure what sort of thing or arrangement would work best. Optimally I’d like to have some kind of wall display, but between my Marvel and DC collections there now are literally a couple hundred of these dudes to show off. Anybody know Ikea hacks that would work well for these, or anything remotely along those lines?
