    This has probably been asked before, but what kind of stands would you guys recommend? I've noticed a lot of you guys have a variety.

    I tend to just use the ones that came the various Masterpiece figures and some spare ones I had from some DBZ figures; Any particular ones you all would suggest?

    Oh I've been thinking about buying those but idk if they have the 3mm peg for most stand holes on Transformers. So how easy/hard are they to put Transformers on?

    They don't have 3mm posts, but they're strong and have a grabby claw.
    Strong enough for Transformers as well as larger Diaclone Reboot stuff.

    With the right balance, easily.
    The second pic i posted has the cruiser section of Waruderos Gigantor held up easily, and that's a beefy bot.

    If you have a Target nearby, it may be worth checking to see if they have the Black Widow set on clearance. I got two for $13 each, and it included the stand, loads of blast effects and the figure.
    Just a suggestion.

    For general purpose stands, Bandai action base 4 has various adapter, including 3mm, 5mm (may need to sand down lightly as just barely oversized). We get those at the local hobby store.

    A big thank you to everyone who replied. I ordered some over the Thanksgiving holidays. These stands are game changers. I'll definitely be getting more and in different styles and varieties. IMG_2070.jpg
