    A couple of my figures have difficulty supporting poses without falling over. I'm thinking of getting stands for my Deluxe-sized figures, but I don't know what's good. Any advice? Thanks.

    I read that for flying alt modes, just some clear glasses or tumblers from the 99 cent store should work. As for stands, I used these things for MP Megs and Unicron:

    Edit: oops, didn't see "deluxe" there. I'm sure there's plenty out there, just get creative.

    I never thought of looking at the dollar stores for stands. I have some wooden ones from the art store i'm working on that i can turn into displays. I'm mostly worried about my Unicron, giant Cybertron Starscream, and MP style Prime falling over.

    could always jury-rig something from some tupperware containers and some double-sided tape / modeling clay

    I've been looking for some stands and some steps (so I can display on multiple levels) as well. Space is getting limited...

    Thanks for this suggestion. If only I can find one that doesn't only fit Leader Class-sized figures and above.

    Anybody has any ideas do bring them forth! :)

    try looking for the stands online that Macross collectors use to pose their Valkyries in a robot flight mode- makes it look like the robot is in space, just leaping or hovering in place.

    Me, i have went to party supply stores and got great deals on plastic, long-necked cocktail glasses or margarita glasses. they are clear, and when inverted the top of the glass has a stable footprint and they look good enough for me.
    esoecially with Blackout, Incinerator, Stratosphere, etc.

    I like this idea. Like those cheap plastic champagne glasses they give out on New Years. Very cool.
