    ... in his "Nemesis"/battleship mode?? I was looking at flightpose but I'm uncertain if they would support the size/weight.

    I have never heard of such a thing. Of course, I've never looked for one either. Lol. I don't know if an off-the-shelf item like that exists. You are probably going to have to go the custom route. And looking at those Flightpose stands, I'm thinking you are correct it that they are unlikely to be able to support the weight...unless you use a few of them...which would get expensive. If it were me, I would get some wood strips and dowels (or metal/plastic rods) and build one something like that shown below (maybe with fewer rods). It will take a little time...but would be stronger, nicer and tons cheaper than a commercial stand.

    Edit: You could even make the rods interchangeable with different length rods so you can vary the tilt/pitch of the bot. And, you could put rubber pads of some type on the tops of the rods to keep them from scratching the toy.
