    I've had a couple with loose knees that had a hard time standing. I think BA Skeletor and He-man. I use stands for them anyway so its not a big deal but I can see why some folks might have issues.

    I always liked how the Classics Webstor incorporated the extra spider legs of the 200X “Staction” version by Neca.

    I really like the Origins line for what they are, but I think overall, Classics is still my favorite MOTU line.

    I saw those at Target and was thinking about getting them for my Marvel Legends. Do you think they'd be good for that?

    I use the origins ones made by Iain’s display accessories. I ordered mine from this store since I am in Canada but you can order them from him on Ebay. He mainly does Star Wars stands but these are great too.

    10 Masters of the Universe Origins Display Stands - MOTU - Collector's Platoon

    They come in green and purple. Pretty sure you can use them with vintage figures as well. What’s nice is they are molded and not 3D printed like many of them on EBay. Hordak is a little tricky to get on one. Otherwise the only characters I don’t have on one are Ram Man and Orko.

    Online it shows the Neca stands are sold out. The website doesn't show me but they sell the Neca stands instore at Target? Do you recall in which section you saw the Neca stands at Target? I need some display stands.

    So my daughter accidentally knocked over some of my Origins display the other day and when she stood Panthor and BA Skeletor back up, she wasn't sure how they went, so she did this:

    "Drop it! Drop my Havok Staff!"
    .

    "I said drop it!"

    GROUNDED!!! Hope Skeletor gets this staff back.

    My daughter has Panthor as a girl. While Skeletor was riding around in her she fell over & started "bleeding" but, plot twist, Panthor was pregnant & gave birth to 2 healthy baby dragons! That's the origin story of the little dragons from Battleground 2 pack.

    congrats - it is always a good feeling to finally get a long sought exclusives. I got my Target Battlefield Warriors set online about 6 weeks ago. I had to stalked the Target app and it took a good solid week of constantly checking the app before I got it.

    I only have 2 Marvel Legends. On one the stand worked on the other the foot hole in the ML figure was a hair too large. Both are Spider Gwen figures.

    Got Wave 6 in today! Really impressed with each figure, especially Beast Man. I love the LoP armor combined with the mini comic red, I might have him as my main Beast Man for a while. I'm also happy to report that Stinkor has his scent! It's not super strong, you have to put your nose right up to the figure, but it is a distinct smell.
