    Since the original image of the prototype of MP-05 Masterpiece Megatron we have seen him propped up by the articulated clear stand. At first I saw it as just a nice prop to keep him stable during conventions and displays but then the same stand showed up in article images and more display images and not just for prototypes but also for the final product.

    The exact same twisty stand.

    So is this a new prop that Takara/Tomy is playing around with for displays from now on or is this unique to MP-05? Is this going to be included with Megatron? Or has this same stand appeared before?

    I dought it will be included. I'm thinking it's a stand that they keep with the show one, so that whoever sets him up can garuntee that he stands correctly. Peace out.

    It's a generic model display stand. Tons of modellers use the exact same things to display their Gundams in flight poses and such for their online galleries and hobby shows. You can probably buy them at HLJ or such, even.
