    Well, OK it may not be a real hidden feature, but it is still cool.

    He has a hole in his back that perfectly fits onto the Marvel Legends display stands to allow hime to be in some more dynamic poses. I currently have him flying back John Woo style while fighting Unicron. The best part of all is that it requires no modding of the fig and doesn't cause any stress marks etc. It is a perfect fit.

    Maybe if I have time later I'll post pics, but if you have Hot Rod and a Marvel Legend stand it is pretty self explanitory.

    Again I apologize for the image quality, but was in a hurry. Sorry about the size too, snapfish automatically scales the pics. Apparantly photobucket doesn't.

    THX for the direction too.

    Not too much. With heavier figures you have to get a bit creative and understand physics.

    Yeah, you just have to play with the screws that tighten the stands base. There is some limit as far as balance is concerned, but it works just fine.

    I had been trying to find a Bot that would fit on this stand for the longest time.

    Yeah, Rodimus is topping out what the stand can handle.

    Now way, I have a gang of those stands and the bases on them are far to small to even hold up Marvel Legends unless you balance them just right. They do have holes on the bottoms for wall mounting so it would be possible to make a bigger base to attach to the bottom. But I still wouldn’t trust a Valk to it.
