    Caught a look at the pretty nifty physics mindtrick in the form of a tensegrity arrangement and knew it just had to be customized into a Transformers display of some sort!

    So here's the Floating Tensegrity Display Platform for Transformers (with options for either Autobot or Decepticon logo as the base)

    This is probably great for displaying flyers and jets and here it is with WFC SIege Starscream (shown with the SkyDoom Shield addon - https://www.patreon.com/posts/38603651)

    Where it gets even more interesting is when used with our earlier Beast Wars Floating Platform (https://www.patreon.com/posts/41819875) too!

    Tested it and found it was stable and robust enough to work for bigger bots like Rhinox and Megatron too!

    Maybe a test with a Commander or Titan class figure should be up next ? :p

    Here's a quite video showing it in action:

    WOW! Those things are cool... I learned what they were two days ago from a youtube video that popped up in my recommendations, what a cool cooincidence! I like the idea of using it intead of a flight stand.

    How are the strings attached?

    Thanks! Those lines are just fishing lines knotted at the ends to stop them from slipping through. The central line is a small loop to hold everything together :)
