    Sup yall, I need your help in finding some flight stands for the classics seekers, finally got myself a display and want my seekers to look as if they're floating in mid air, and I hope to pull this off with a flight stand... Problem is, I have no idea where to look ;-[

    Alucard77 helped me out by pointing to the stands he uses for dynamic mid air poses (in bot mode) but I'm not sure if these will work for Plane mode??

    Assuming you can get a good grip on it, a Tamashii stage will totally hold up a Classics Seeker. The gripping arms have a limited range, though, so it may be a bit of a challenge to hold it up in plane mode.

    I got a pack off of Amazon a couple years ago, but you can find Tamashii stages on most sites that stock Japanese figures - hlj, amiami, etc.

    Those things will hold up the seekers in plane mode as well. You play with them, they pretty much can hold anything, if it isn't too heavy. Shit they hold up my Lugnut in a mid air pose.

    Wow I didn't even think of Amazon!! They have some in stock!! Thank you!

    LUGNUT?? Wowwwww!! Then maybe these are all I need then? (didn't want to bother you, so i just opened a thread here, to see what others may have used, thanks for the extra info here bro!!

    How high can those go? I think I may just order both, and use a combo of them together for my display


    Thanks so much fellas, for taking the time to help out a fellow collector, really appreciate it!!

    Bless~!

    Yeah, they're the guys who actually make them. HLJ charges a lot because they have to import them. Makes no sense for us to buy these from them. Lol.

    Anyways, enjoy. And remember to take pics of your display and share them.

    Thanks bro, I had already seen them, but yeah they weren't the style i was looking for my display.. I was very impressed by the Clear acrylic ones, that have been posted here, and order a set of each, thanks to everyone's suggestions!

    Got a set of Tamashii Stage ACT 4 from Amazon
    &
    A set of all 3 sizes of the flight stands from Flightpose

    Thanks again guys! Helped me out BIG time!

    No problem! I totally understand, as I prefer the clear stand as well. My thinking is that there should be a cheap, inexpensive way to mix the best of both of these worlds :)

    Hey man, when you get them in, would you mind testing them out with MP Seekers for me? I doubt the tamashii stage will work well for something that big, but the flight stands probably will. If you could give me some idea about which size is best (I'm guessing large), I'd really appreciate it.

    Yeah no problem bro, I only have one MP Seeker (Skywarp) and I'll give you a pm with some pix once they arrive man. I'm pretty sure they would support it with no problem, but one size may better suit what your trying to achieve, so I've got you.

    I have two of the largest one. On one I have GI Joe Cobra Rattler and on the other Beast Wars TM Depthcharge. An MP Seeker should be no problem. Either the medium or the large should be ok.
