Title: Sega Retail Display Case
Post by: Bear78 on July 03, 2017, 05:21:19 PM
Time for the big reveal of what I am been working on for the past few weekends.  This is my Sega Retail Display case!  Iíve had this sitting around in various states since 2014 but finally got around to putting it together the best I could.  I believe this would have been in something like KB Toys back in the day.  It would have originally been mounted to the wall at the bottom and top and the whole spindle would have spun around.  Iíve not been able to find any pictures of it anywhere on the internet and nobody has been able to give me any real info on it. Unfortunately I think it was missing a few parts so we had to improvise and make it a free standing case without the ability for it to fully spin. I did have enough parts for almost 2 of them but it was really just enough parts for 1 good one and some extra junk at the end.

Here is what it looked like when I originally got it.

I fully disassembled it and cleaned everything.

Some of the artwork was damaged so I scanned it, cleaned it up, and "fixed" it the best I could

Thanks guys!  I'm really happy how it turned out and glad to finally have it all together after sitting in storage for so long.

A LOT lol.  I used to be a bigger Star Wars collector and did a Zuckuss focus.  I still pick up stuff now and then but it's second behind games now.  I got everything from Vintage carded figures to prototypes.

Man, this is awesome.  Very cool that you took the initiative to get it all cleaned up and refurbished.
