    A modular display floor that includes 24 hexagonal pieces and 60 fasteners. A single piece fits Titan Masters of figures of similar size. Then you can connect and create your own floor.

    Freaky! On my way home Monday I was thinking an interlocking honeycomb pattern display base would be awesome but I wanted varying heights to simulate terrain for more battle poses.

    Cool idea. The raised face makes me wonder if they can stack. Be nice if they could, better if a linked layer could stack for the solidity. Will have to wait for more info or someone to try it out.

    As it is now this is just a floor, I can\'t see the value. However, if they also released hexagonal pieces which had peg holes in them for other action figure diplay stands that would be interesting.

    Not seeing a whole lot of value if the price is more than $3 per kit. Gotta do a ton of work just to make a floor that doesn’t cover much space. Those chain bases I was getting from TCP under $20 each gave me floors and walls at least

    Seems like it's just a Rip off from Tabletop RPG table top Battle tiles.

    I've seen things exactly like this for folks who invest in Tabletop games like Warhammer 40k, Battletech and other more wellknown Tabletop games. You know the Hexegon Grid Maps?

    I understand the appeal of the modular tiles though. :)  and I wish them well.

    But the compation for the battle tiles is seriously steep. Especially since tons of people usually just make their own now-a-days.

    Meanwhile other sets go vertical through the stability of being connected to their own floors. This stuff needs a purpose overhaul. Add pegs and ports to be compatible with other chain base sets and make them able to stack offset.

    It looks cool, but I don\'t think I need it.  I like that you can change the layout to whatever you want, that\'s neat.  But I feel like it needs something more to make it a must have.

    Ok there is an idea there... well Almost there.  If they were translucent Purple and Orange, or even light blue, or energon colored. How about mirrored surfaced, decals as well. Get yourself some cheap christmas lights and let the party begin.

    I think they did this just so they could show off their Legends and Masterpiece figures
