Here's kind of a strange question. Does anyone know of a display stand I could use to prop up a single game (with a DVD or Blu-ray size case)?

Usually trading card stores will have something like that.

I worked at a used CD & Game store for years. We had these cool little plastic props to display new releases with. I had about a dozen of them at one point, but I think they may have been tossed out last time I moved :/

Yep, that's exactly the sort of thing I'm looking for. I'd like to separately display one game at a time, sort of like a "now playing" feature.

I bought something like that years ago at Walmart. Can't remember if it was where the frames are or in the arts & craft section, but it is a simple wire frame stand that was intended for a picture or plate. I used it as a desk stand for my psp to watch movies. Which I never did.

I'm sure you could find something simple and cheap at Target or a craft store, too.

Are you looking for a particular style? As mentioned, you could use a small stand for a picture frame or plate. Or you could go all out and get something fancy like this:

Of course, something like this would be a bit more practical:

You could use those plate holder... things. Not sure what they're called but here's what they look like...

Yeah, it is fun. It's much better than hearing what people halfway across the country think of your mom. Those jerks...

For anyone who doesn't know what those are, they're the Dead Space Ultra Limited Editions (only 1000 made). New copies sell for about $1000-1200 each.

And I have to ask, how did you manage to get so many of them?


I've always wanted a copy of the Ultra edition. I'm truly jealous of this picture and I'm usually never jealous on these boards. Props to him

I remember being on the order page for the Dead Space UE and debating whether to buy it. I decided against it because it was a new IP and didnt think it'd do well. Needless to say, I regret it because not only did it do well, it was my 2nd favorite game of the year (Fallout 3 being #1).

I want a UE for my collection but I am waay to jewish to be spending that much on a single game.

Bought two of these shelves for under $200 shipped (B1G1 50% off, 5% and free shipping from Red Card). Ordered on Sunday, got them today.

It replaced two cheap $30 shelves that were busted up. These are supposedly wood, and not particle board. Each shelf holds up to 75lbs, which is about how much each shelf of guides weigh.

Spoiler


Yeah I had a TV stand from that same collection. It is basically Particle Board, painted a glossed over. If it isn't exactly Particle Board, then it is the tiniest step above that, lol.

Pretty much any shelving that you buy at places like Wal-Mart, Target, Ikea, etc is gonna be chip board, particle board, MDF, or some other manufactured wood product :/

Making your own or paying out the ass is sort of the only way to get actual wood shelving these days (for the most part) :(

No, this one has least wood laminate / plywood. It's definitely not particle board. I know cause one shelf has a small chunk missing from shipping.

The Oskar ones aren't too bad. I add a couple of "T" brackets to make them more ridged and they hold up pretty well. They don't have much weight on them though and the shorter shelves prevent bowing.

I'm going to have to go with real wood/short shelves for my guides though.

That's one of the cheaper things you'll be able to find. You can look out for wood or wire plate stands, but they cost almost as much and they're usually kinda ugly. But if you don't mind using them, you can find them at your local Walmart/Target and maybe even at a dollar store.
