    That sounds all kinds of awesome! Can we get some pics once it's all set up?
    Hoping for a kind of same situation myself soon, I bought one detolf a few years ago and each new figure goes in. Now it just looks like a mess but as I still don't know if I'm staying in the USA I don't want to buy any more. So there are figures that have been buries back there for years and a few that are still in the box from my last move.

    Sure! It's a mix of Transformers and Sci-fi weaponry (Star Wars Blasters, Lightsabers, Aliens Pulse Rifles.). It looks a little like Turbines set up actually but his is just beautiful if you've never seen it.

    I have not but I shall look out for it! Look forward to seeing your mancave! My wife is in agreement that we need a 3 bed house, our bedroom, guestroom and my office/mancave. Bless her!

    So I picked Spaceracer up on a whim recently and he arrived the other day. Since I didn't know much about the little guy (just thought he looked fun to mess with), I was surprised to find that he comes with an orange display base that looks like it's meant to connect with other base pieces via interconnecting arms around the sides (kinda like a puzzle piece). Is Toyworld going to release more of these base pieces?

    Also, should he have come with some kind of stand to plug into the base so he can be posed flying in UFO mode? There's holes on the top of the base, and what appears to be a little connector piece that has to be parts-formed from his back to the bottom of his UFO mode during transformation, but it doesn't seem to have a purpose unless there's supposed to be some kind of stand that plugs in? Sorry for not digging through the thread for answers... Just trying to see if I need to contact the seller, or possibly Toyworld directly.

    Yes he should have an orange stand that plugs into the base piece that you got. Kind of looks like an orange version of the stand that came with the official seekers. As for the base pieces, I think you used to be able to pick them up separately. Not sure if they're still available anywhere.

    Yea - the base plates come with all of their MP figures (except the constructor bots). They are a VERY nice pack in and I've amassed a pretty decent collection of them. Autobots come with the orange bases. Decepticons come with the black.

    After seeing the reviews on Klattu - I think I'm going to stick with my TW Cosmos for now. I kinda like it better.

    Thanks for the info guys! Any chance anyone has a pic of the stand? I'm talking with the seller, but there's a bit of a language barrier (seller's in China) so I was thinking a picture would be helpful... Thanks in advance! :)

    I don't, but if you take a look at Benscollectibles review, he shows it early on. Also, double check the stand isn't snapped in underneath the base for storage. You may have it, it just might be hidden.

    Any chance any one of your sellers would be willing to sell the bases separately? I'd be curious to see how much they'd go for.

    Huh...all these past months I was thinking I never got the stand. Just checked under the base and be there it is. DERP!

    There's just one thing though...it ain't clear.

    Yeah I thought it was odd how mine was clear lol. But I was just happy to receive one at all. I wish they'd sell these separately again.

    I can forgive the fact that it's not clear much easier than the fact that it puts him in an awkward "takeoff" angle rather than horizontally for flight. :(

    I guess that is kind of weird for a flying saucer isn't it?

    I don't know if the bases were ever sold separately or not. Sorry... None of my suppliers offered me them, but don't really know. I'm sure someone on here will probably know..
