There used to be one guy in defunct play.com Malaysia forum who had rows and rows of neat IKEA Detolf shelves in a special collection room in his house, got nice curtains, parquette floor board and aircond. But fluorescent white tube lighting lah. Another guy had nice glass/wood white cabinets with his statues, and he also got life sized Biology skeleton prop in his room which I think also served as bedroom. But he sold all his stuff off liao.
The guy that u mentioned goes by the nick of Statuefreak, at 1 time he used to have all the grail & high end pieces but he suddenly sold off everything. I never did ask the reason why.
The main reason why we cant have those fancy display option is because of $$$ issue. I'm not referring to all but the majority of local collectors have the same problem. I know there are quite a lot of high income earners here and we have yet to see their collections.
Custom built cabinets, display option, etc is not cheap in Malaysia....another setback. I knew someone who collects alcohol, he display all of them in a large glass cabinet which he custom built with lights. And i really do mean large as in it occupied 1 of the whole wall section in his living room. I was told it cost RM12k to assembled, material + labor. But then again, I'm no expert in this field, just telling what he told me.
Another reason is that US collectors can get almost everything ( especially Sideshow products )at a cheaper price compare to us. Shipping fees & currency exchange gonna get you killed man.
