    If you have a Tap Plastics anywhere in your area, they sell those kinds of containers to house sports memorabilia like Footballs and Basketballs. They have several different sizes so it should be large enough to accommodate action figures.

    I used a plastic beanie baby holder for my dcd cyborg supes once but if you are looking to frame and hang on a wall you might want a shadowbox like thing from michaels or hobby lobby....My LCS sells display covers too but for 6 inch in box figures and sports displays for like a football or basketball something like that might work

    Aside from the day I picked it up, I never used my ring. I put it in the Detolf with the rest of my ring collection and it just didn't work one day.
    Glad to help

    the green cover can be pried off and then two tiny screws hold the board onto the plastic remove them and push the button that activates the light in order to get the circuit board to come out... it hold 2 cr 1616 batteries

    sometimes you can boil water or even just heat a coffee cup of water in the microwave and dip the malformed part in the water for about 10 second and you should be able to make the part go back into shape. once in the shape you want run cold water over it and for about 30 seconds it should stay in shape. you could also after reforming the part stick the figure in the freezer as well.

    also in some cases the knee holes aren't lined up properly or fully on the Knee peg and the water trick helps that.

    other joints you seperate via the water method and can try a dab of superglue in the inner part of the joint let it dry and point the joint back together and it should provide a little more friction. though I rarly have had to employ this tick as the
