    Sorry if this is a noob question but I am REALLY trying to find some display stands that I can use to pose different scale transformers in various positions. I know the MP Seekers all have one and there is that crappy aftermarket stand made for Unicron but what about other figs? They don't have to be TF branded or anything and I prefer clear acrylic or something similar that's flexible AND very sturdy.

    Any ideas???

    Easier solution....... blank CD and a dab of hot glue. Way cheaper than stands and the glue comes off super easy if you need it to.

    You could try some Gundam Action bases. They work very well with Gundams and will probably work well for smaller size robots.

    There is also a great display for Unicron here: Brownnoize Productions: January 2011

    Thanks for the link! Those actually look like they might work for what I need.


    Great idea for having them stand flat but I am looking for something that I can use to have them elevated (feet in the air) for posing in lots of different positions. I make a photocomic and it would make for quicker production if I didn't have to extra photoshop'ing any and every time I want them to appear to be moving/jumping/flying. I am gonna try the CD & super glue on somethings tho!



    WOW! I mos def think those Gundam action bases are a solution, and they even have clear acrylic ones (which will make it even easier to wipe out in photoshop, lol)

    That Unicron stand looks great too...if I ever manage to get one I know exactly where to get a stand for him.

    MidnightBliss said a CD and HOT GLUE - which is completely different from Super Glue - I imagine super glue does not come off as easily. :)

    Yeah I'd go with the Tamashii ACT5 stands.

    I have the a lot of the ACT4 ones. Which are basically the same, just with a rectangle base.

    I am looking for something similar, but for MUCH larger transformers. Anyone know of any stands for MMC Feral Rex, TFC Hercules, TFC uranos, etc? These combiners stand well on their own, but im interested in posing them in a pose where they are levitated with their toes pointed downwards.

    Not sure if you found anything you liked, but I stumbled on these when getting into Gundam kits. I think they look really good.
