    Yup already have a plethora of acrylic stands in my supplies that I've slowly been integrating into the collection. Found a pair of tall boys to put the Ark in vertical launch mode behind Defensor and Superion

    Nice! I'm personally debating the orientation I will make the ship go but the vertical launch one is definitely an option. I currently have him in robot mode but I am just so romanticized about that damn ship mode that well he needs to be in ship mode. Nice thing with me not using a case like a Detolf but rather big merchandise stands that they use in hallmark stores to display their product, it frees me up to move things around in open space to get him propped up. I split my collection up into decepticon and autobot factions that look at each other in a stand off. I am still waiting for Scorponok to come in as I have his spot settled and ready to go.

    I made sure to gift them when purchasing just in case I get a label monster that decides to label the main box itself. They were good with the Ark without me having to gift it, but just in case....

    Does the leatherette crack or split at all from your dealings with it? I saw these prior but that was my main worry in getting them or the white ones. Definitely nicer as it will have some resistance to it to keep the bots up in more unique poses. Slipping on acrylic unfortunately does happen if it is not stood properly.

    I haven't had any issues with that at all. And this is California, it's dry as hell as I'm sure you know.

    i assume the matrix was supposed to be inside his chest but because it isn't secured, it can fall out and rattle around inside the box...didn't see any evidence on mine that the chest had opened though

    Good to know! Tried scouring reviews at the time for anything other than jewelry for its use and it was a bit hard to chance on it without knowing but thank you for the confirmation!

    It is the worst weekday weekend to shop as kids with parents are shopping for supplies and toys accidentally. I was shocked as the wheeljack are also taken when I went there.
