The Best Ways to Display LEGO Minifigures
15th November 2022
Minifigures are arguably the most collectable aspect of LEGO, with many now commanding a price tag of hundreds of pounds, dollars, or Euros. They're the most prized possessions of many an AFOL due to their exceptional quality and design. They can also make for excellent investments, with the price of some minifigures having skyrocketed in the past few years.
Regardless of whether you're buying minifigures for your own enjoyment, or that of someone else's in the years to come, their condition is of utmost importance. LEGO is fairly durable, but many minifigures have some delicate elements that can easily get damaged, such as cloaks, thin headpieces or accessories, and metallic finishes. Therefore, if you want to protect them from harm, and fully showcase your collection, it's worth putting some time and money into displaying them well.
In this article we provide a run down of some of the best products for displaying your minifigures that will allow them to take centre stage in your home or office.

Digs for Figs
Digs for Figs is a UK based company that have been making specialist display cases for LEGO minifigures since 2013. They have one primary product, which is a wall-mounted, front-opening frame that's available in either black or white. Having a narrow focus has allowed them to produce a display case of exceptional quality with a beautiful, sleek, and perfectly proportioned design that's also very attractively priced. The frame is 64 stud wide and there are 7 shelves, which means they can fit over 200 minifigures.
The company encourage you to be creative with your displays and create “miniscenes”, where minifigures are shown in action in your own brick-built environment. This is made possible due to the versatility of the case's generous 6-stud depth and height. Digs for Figs now run an annual competition where the best miniscene wins a free display frame, so if you think your building skills are up to scratch, it's definitely worth entering.
