    Are there any clear plastic stands available that work well to display CHUG seekers?

    I don't use the stands myself so I can't attest to them but I've heard quite a few people say the Bandai ones.

    Tamashii Stage Act 4 works fine for me with RiD seekers.

    BBTS has Stage 5 up for preorder and I'm interested to see how those do as I like the design of the interlocking bases.

    Those are the ones I was trying to say. Thanks.

    Also the interlocking bases seems like an interesting idea for pose potential and that price isn't bad.

    Yeah you were right on, Tamashii Nations is a Bandai brand/division. Also, the arms of the Stage 5 look a lot bulkier than the Stage 4 so I wonder if they can hold extended arm poses with heavier figures too.

    I've been racking my brain about clear stands because there's GOT to be a good way to make them with cheap, found materials....

    I bought a Flightpose or whatever company was making them almost a decade ago to hold up a 1/48 VF-1A. I don't think it's great unless you can swap in some variable stand leg lengths, but it definitely holds more weight than the Stage Acts do. Very difficult to get dynamic poses out of and really only worked for flight mode for the Macross jet.
