Hobbit and Lord of the Rings LEGO Minifigures :: The Boys' Storage and Display Case

When it comes to LEGO our boys' favorite themes are The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings collections. (The Architecture and Creator sets are at the top of the list too.)

I've already shared how we store most of their LEGO in their bedroom, and you can see some of their sets assembled and displayed on wall shelves above their dresser, but at that point we hadn't found a way to store or display their LEGO Minifigures.

The boys have a couple small storage cases like this one which really don't work very well with only three sections inside… I love these Large Black Minifigure Cases, which can stack on top of each other, but they are just so expensive especially if you need multiple cases. Our solution was to use a Wood Shadow Box purchased with a 50% off coupon from a local craft store for $8!  (I had originally purchased this for storing our Alphabet of Saints Dolls before deciding on the black display instead.) It is working out great and the boys love their new display case! Now I need to see if I can find another one for the rest of their Minifigures...
