    I know blue text and all, but I would honestly think this is not a joke but a reality. That way people that don't have a spare stand from sovereign or whatnot can make the choice if they want to dump $20 into a stand for phoenix, and the people that don't want to pay $240 for a phoenix with the stand aren't obligated to.

    Never understood why Sovereign had a stand in the first place... Then again, I wouldn't use a stand for this and I don't even use Soar's.

    Think I might build a flightstand out of all the Lego I have.

    Will Sovereign's stand work on this?

    Honestly I think this is a better solution. I for one don't want flight stands (or a lot of accessories) for most of my figures. I'd rather a figure be cheaper than include a flight stand for extra money (on shipping, too).

    Yeah, I don't use the flight stand. Maybe I use Soar's once in a while, but I've never used the other stands that come with other figures including jets.

    Yes. The adapter that comes with Phoenix fits on Sovereign's stand.

    maybe the stand for sovereign was actually intended as a additional part for phoenix :lol 

    whatever the case, I don't use the sovereign stand either. so that will be phoenix's flight stand if I really want to have him in that mode.

    the real question is can I adjust the flight stand to fit daca kronos cause that guy is gonna be in permanent alt mode when phoenix comes in.
    actually just transformed him to alt mode as well, forgot how easy a transform he had. really wish the all around QC on that figure could have been better. it was not a bad toy if you got a good copy...just the all around QC was non-existent and led to the bad wrap it has today. still a fun toy imo....just not going to be what phoenix is.

    Great... And many episodes had all the Decepticons flying in bot mode, yet this is still the first one that's not a seeker with a flight stand.

    Might be able to. I'll have to see when my copy shows up. I already have a couple things I am planning for this guy, one of which is fixing the stupid logo design and doing something like I came up with for the constructor set.

    I have a new CNC machine/laser cutter coming in the next month along with an additional 3D resin printer. So some sort of stand shouldn't be that hard to come up with.

    When the blast effect is used in addition to the flight stand it gives the user the option to recreate that specific moment from the animated film. Just like the buggy eyes with Stomp.
    Nice. What do you plan to do with the logo design? What is wrong with it currently?

    I wouldnt trust Jream to make that, they are good at fixing problems on tiny peices with really close tolerances. I can't imagine they would know anything about a stick and a flat piece of plastic. Total disaster if you ask me.

    Same here, I don't really see why people are so hung up on it, I quite like the variety it adds.
    I thought Sovereign's was superfluous, though I find Soar's handy for a dino alt mode display. I'd be a bit reluctant to trust Skyfire on that particular stand though, with him being so much bigger than those two figures. Just Soar can cause that hinge to give way if he's posed at the wrong angle, I dread to think what something the size of Pheonix might do!
    Hopefully he'll be able to give us a raised 3D faction logo... FT figures always seem to have awkwardly-shaped raised areas that don't quite fit a Reprolabel sticker, so I'd gladly swap that for a nice sculpted MP-10 style symbol...

    Is this fact or wish?

    A wish... That seems reasonable enough to come true.
