st Welcome Figure Shield

November 16, 2017, 07:31:25 PM by Darth Spice
Looking for a solution to keeping your 40th Anniversary collection protected?  Acrylic cases are great but can be expensive and plastic gem boxes keep the dust away but offer little to no protection from damage or warping over time.  FigureShield has you covered!  The SW-40 is our custom designed, two piece clamshell made specifically to fit the Star Wars 40th Anniversary vintage line.  Made to fit all of the figures in the line, including the exclusive X-Wing Luke and R5-D4 cards, the FigureShield SW-40 keeps your collection safe from warping, dings, scratches and other potential harm by securely holding the figures in place.  Use them for storage, display them on shelves or hang them on the wall knowing that your figures are safe from accidents.

The SW-40 is designed for the 40th Anniversary line but also works well with other figure lines such as DC Multiverse, Marvel Legends and Power Rangers Legacy Collection.  And we are extending a special discount offer to Sandtroopers.com readers!  Save 15% on your entire purchase between now and Nov. 30, 2017 - just ender code SNDTRP15 at checkout.
