We are so proud of our ‘Play n Display’ feature that we want you to design and build your own play n display model. It must fit the size specifications and display some minifigures. The rest is up to you.

There and Back again

Win a Front Opening Lego Minifigure Display Frame

Display Frames UK have created a uniquely sized display frame for Lego Minifigures. This includes extra deep shelves so that those figures with tails can fit alongside all your other figures. The shelves are deep enough that it is possible to design and build (entirely out of Lego of course) a set that can fit on a shelf and add some much needed creativity and fun to your Lego Minfigure Display. We have crafted several ourselves and you can see them in our gallery, but we realise that the power of Lego is the freedom to build. So we invite you to design and build your own Play and Display shelf on which to display Minifigures. We will give away one of our Large Front Opening Display Frames to the best design.

We are looking for brilliant creative designs. They must display some minifigures and fit in the frame (see sizing rules below). You can enter as many times as you like. You can enter through Facebook by posting to our competition page or Twitter/Instagram by utilizing the #digs4figsplayndisplay hashtag or simply upload your picture through our website form below. All pictures must be posted, uploaded or tagged before the closing date of Midnight on 30th September 2019.

Entries must fit in one of our frames. The shelve size is 6 x 64 x 6 & 2/3 (bottom plate and topped with a tile) studs. See Picture below.

Winners will be chosen by our panel of judges.
