I wanted to have a nice accent to the black sliding doors in my Lego room, and thought a minifig display would be perfect. I was able to put together a relatively complete history as far as the character changes go, due to the number of duplicates I had and additional figures ordered through 3rd party. So I am still able to keep a fig with its original set, and have some in dioramas. The bases are x-large baseplates, and all the pieces were ordered through Pick-a-Brick. None of the pieces needed to be glued to support weight, which is a plus for any past rare/future minifigs.
