It's normal. They are very heavy, and each Detolf is two big boxes. Not to say the cost is not ridiculous, but that sounds normal for Ikea. There are similar cabinets on Amazon Prime for $150 shipped, but you can get two Detolfs for that if you make the drive (not counting gas costs, etc.).
The above curio uses thicker wood framing, so not as accommodating as a Detolf for running wires with zip-ties, since they use thin metal tubing. I have their half-size one, and I ended up using wire hiding tubes painted black to address that.
Amazon carries a number of curio displays. I use this brand and another by the same manufacturer. Theyre of similar size to detolfs. (last I checked they are a little taller but detolf shelves are just a smidge longer)

If you're looking for a display most people recommend Detolfs if you have an ikea near you. When you get the chance you should check out the sub's faq link. You might find some useful things there. Nice collection though and welcome to the sub :)
EDIT: I personally use this from amazon since I don't have an ikea anywhere near me. They're pricier than detolfs but they are considerably larger than detolfs as well.
For the game boxes themselves, a bookshelf is probably the best option. However, if you get collector's editions of games you probably get a fair amount of statues and such, those would look great in a display case like this
I think most of us all have the same ones. LoL its thr one am amazon, or one like it.Coaster Home Furnishings 950171 Curio Cabinet, Black [link]
1) make sure you read the reviews to learn how to put it together. That sounds weird but trust me
2) i have these same exact cases i got mine from my local wesco for $129, they are usually like $159, but i found it on sale like presidents day for $129, when i went to get my second one i told them that, and thry gave it to me for $129.
Edit: also they are 2 day shipping with prime, if you dont have prime do the trial.
Mixed reviews from everyone on amazon, but I had no issues and absolutely love mine!
Here is my "Otaku Room" that I'm quite proud of. Thankfully my non-anime watching family don't judge me for it lol. A lot of my family who have seen my room actually like how I've decorated it. And all my friends compliment on how it looks whether they watch anime a lot or not at all.
I managed to snag a 6-foot glass curio cabinet on Amazon for under $150. Some assembly required but it was well worth it and holds all my X-Wing, Armada, and Imperial Assault (may they rest in peace) models. Here's the link:
I wish it was the IKEA. I got both of them from amazon.

Overall very happy with both. Once I start collecting more amiibo (or smash dlc amiibo is announced) I'll have to upgrade my space.
It's $145 right now.
