Hi,

any interest in soft sided cases similar to what Selberg was selling?
In discussion with a company that will make a 24" x 12" x 9" case with 1" foam on all sides for $125.00 + shipping.
Have to order 15 cases to get this price.

Any interest contact me at donald@woodynfriends.com for further information.

Donald;

Is the case size 24" x 12" x 9" ID, or OD?

Does the foam have a nylon covering glued to the foam to prevent crumbling?

Does the case come with an extra padding surounding the head as a schock protector?

Can the outside of the case have the ability to attach a name similar to what Mark Wade's case has?

depending on the ID measurment, If I can match all this I would be very interested in purchasing the case

You’re very welcome Philip, now I can tell everyone I know that I get counsel from an Emmy award winning producer that has assisted me greatly.

Before today all I could say was that Philip was a great guy that is helping me by giving me wonderful advice.

So, while we're on the subject of cases, I came across a small Rhino trunk that looks very cool. It's heavy (14 pounds), but I wouldn't be doing any serious traveling with it, outside of the car. I would only use it for stage and storage. At this point, I'd only use it for a soft puppet I'm currently having made. I'd get the black one and have an artist friend of mine paint my character's name on it in stylized lettering.

That said, I am interested in hearing pros and cons regarding it from you fine folk.

Keith - I found this picture - the case in this picture is very similar to the cases I've bought (except mine don't have a recessed handle - and when I do mine, I'm going to line them with material over the foam);

That's a beautiful case. Thanks for the pic! May I ask from where do you buy them?

I neglected to add the link to my post above about the Rhino trunk I'm thinking about buying. Here it is:

Again, I'm thinking of the black one. I welcome feedback!

I've been getting them locally.
It looks like that Rhino case, comparing the dimensions to the Maher cases, for a hard figure would only maybe fit a 33" figure or smaller. It would be nice if they had a center handle too.

Does the foam have a nylon covering glued to the foam to prevent crumbling? - No

Does the case come with an extra padding surounding the head as a schock protector? - No, easily made

Can the outside of the case have the ability to attach a name similar to what Mark Wade's case has? - Should be able to attach some Velcro and do that.

Dear MAPS... Great thinking. Vent Cases "can" double as tables. You can even have a nice red (or black) crushed panne fabric type velvety table-cloth or other fabric to cover the "table" and velcro your name/sign on the front.

Clinton's cases arrived today. They're VERY lightweight and very strong. I'm impressed. I'm not sure just yet how to handle the extra piece which is apparently for protecting the figures' heads. May have to ask Clinton for more info.

Hi Philip... I leave that extra cushion piece (covered in a black smooth fabric) at the bottom of the case then when I place my figure into the case I make sure to lay the figure's face onto it, As I do this, the soft cushion automatically wraps partially around the head and really ensures that the face is protected nicely, so that it will not get scuffed up by the inner-sponge.

Hope this helps.

Thanks, Jonathan. Clinton emailed me back in about twenty minutes and told me much the same.

Good to know I've bee using the "right way", Philip! Smile

I guess when I first received mine, Clinton also advised me on this aspect as well.

Best wishes and happy venting!

Well, the size is actually right for the puppet that I'm getting. There are larger ones; the "Tuck" version is Rhino's smallest model. I agree, it would be nice with center handle. But, it's not a deal breaker for me.

By the way, how important do you all think it is to pad/line a case for a soft puppet?

I only have a couple of soft figures that I have in cases, but I didn't worry padding and lining, not like they need protection from a hard impact against the case. As long as it's clean inside, a soft figure is safe without the padding I think.

Good point. Or you could use the soft figures to pad the cases for the hard figures. Smile

Hay Folks Here is a link for the case company I use, here in New York city.
They do the bulk of there business on line so they do ship. I use the smallest telescope case. There is no Padding but you could add your own.

I fly with mine to the Convention but It could be used if you wanted to bring a few figures to a show.
Just another idea, here is the link.... http://www.travelautobag.com/p08-sample-cases.htm
