Just putting an idea out there since I haven't the money for a "genuine" display. there are two cheap options.
first (the one I'm using) is to simply use an empty CD-R spindle (100 count). They have a wide enough base to not tip over even with a slid metal duelling hilt. Just slip the "business end of your hilt over the spindle and your set.
Second would be to use a "doll stand" from most hobby/craft shops. THey ae inexpensive (@$5-6) and could hold the hilt upright (though there might be an issue of overbalancing.
if I can get a pic up of mine I will.....looks nice.. I might even be able to set up an LED or two to loght it....
Reality often interferes with what would otherwise be an idyllic delusion.
Humans have an unbelievable propensity for stupidity and a neverending capacity for brilliance. This is the key to their adapability and survival.
Nothing can be accomplished until you accept the possibility of failure and the consequences of inaction.

If you want to display the sabers individually, then I still recommend the perspex plate stands that are available, as that allows you to display them reasonably close together (or seperately) but still be able to appreciate each one individually without the details of another intruding on the first

Tanzan, can you post a pic of what they look like?
Sorry for the delay, my phone and PC aren't synching like they used to since I dropped it (the phone) but here's a pic that shows a few of the sabers on individual stands. For those interested, the sculpture behind the Quinlan Vos saber is carved soapstone (which I suspect is what the material General Grievous' is made of was inspired by) and the painting on the wall is an abstract piece I did last year.

I went to walmart and got a CD/DVD tower. i spaced it out so that each shelf could support a set of towel hooks and cut out inserts in the walls of the Tower for the sabers to slide through. after that is was simply a matter of paining the display black and re-lining the edges of the tower with a vynal adhesice to make the rough edges disapear. It Holds all six of my sabers on it. When I get a new Digital Camera, I will post a picture of it.
The tower cost me 20 bucks, the towel hoods were 10 dollars a set and the paint and vynal were 15. So, it was just under a hundred bucks to create a piece of furniture for my house. I love it, and GF thinks im crazzy. lol I guess she will just have to suffer hehe
