    So, the 'anal port' puzzle is resolved (maybe I am a little disappointed).

    Here in Singapore, TRU are giving away a stand if you spend S$30 or more. It looks very familiar!

    That's a strange giveaway, but admittedly not a bad one! I'd go for it if it came to the States.

    Why doesn't hasbro do these free with purchase giveaways? Has it ever been explained by Hasbro? im probably overlooking something.

    I found it interesting because these are TF4 branded - that's an AoE black sticker on the base of the stand, which means it was designed into the range by Hasbro specifically.

    Indeed. Bandai/Tamashii Nations certainly haven’t invented clear figure stands, but this resembles their figure stands a lot.

    But that looks like a claw, not a port.

    Correct me if you will, I'm not an expert on figure stands.

    With some stands you can take the claw of and use this to peg the arm directly into the figure. It is used for running, jumping and sometimes flying poses, depends on the figure and the stand that comes with it. The claw itself is just to hold the figure while standing normally, most of the time.

    Oh snap. These AOE figures just became infinitely cooler. They work with the Tamashii flight stands!

    I'll have to start looking at stands next time I make an online order. Anyone know offhand if Hasbro Toy Shop has stands?

    Ha ha cool, I've been using the Bandai Stage Act 5 (for mechanics) for my AOE stuff & they worked really well with TFs. So this piece of news is rather coincidental.

    Thanks Cybershadow for this info. :)

    This just confirms Hasbro punched ports in their AoE figures to fit those stands
