    Stands available for classic MOTU / POP figures???

    I was wondering if these are available. I'm getting tired to find one of my figures fell down of my shelf everytime I get up in the morning or get home afternoon!

    Anyone out there who knows where to purchase (online) figure stands?
    Can you also please advice me which measure?



    Thanks,

    *G*

    Not sure of any aftermarket ones available, although I'm sure there is something out there -

    There was a board game that was realeased back when MOTU was at its height of success that was segmented and would allow you to use your action figures in stands that came with the game.

    Here is a link on Ebay - the black stands that the game pieces were also made to hold the figures.

    Stands?

    Is there anybody that makes any kind of stands for the classic figures? I know there aren't any peg holes which makes it difficult but I figured somebody came up with some kind of design.....

    They are very cool, I had to buy two games to get all the pieces to make one game, but I have 4 extra pieces beyond the game, and I use the 4 all the time, I wish I had more. If there is someone who wants to cast them, I will mail them one to use.

    PM me if you are a caster, and we'll talk.

    For my figures, I just use Poster Putty (the blue stuff). It works really well. I just roll some into a ball (about half-a-dime size) and push the figures foot down on top of it. Some heavier figures like Beastman need it under both feet.
    It holds really good, and comes off easy.

    While not necessarily what you're looking for, the game 'Battle For Eternia' came with stands for the game pieces that doubled as stands for the figures (so you could play the game with your figures and not just a cardboard cut-out). They slide over the feet so they're not good for characters like Moss Man.

    Hi thanks for that Tylerm, I actually have that game here somewhere, and thought about that, but I always worried that the 'over foot' holders would damage the paint. Its a shame that Kaiser -who make barbie/Jem stands dont make a smaller version for MOTU. Their stands are adjustable and enable posing.

    I think the paint would be okay. I just know that when I tried to put Moss Man in, some of the flock started coming off

    Never heard of Kaiser, but it sounds like something like that on MOTU scale would be good. The issue with most action figure stands is they rely on peg holes (either in the feet or if its a flight stand the back) which MOTU doesn't have. Some people are comfortable drilling the holes, I'm not. Hopefully someone will have a better suggestion.

    Vintage MOTU Figure Stands..

    I'm not sure if there is a thread about htis already or not. If there is I couldnt find it. Anyways, are there any good stands out there for loose MOTU figures that work well for displayng? Im tired of my loose figs falling down every once in a while.

    I heard about the stands that come with the "Battle for Eternia" board game, but it would take a while to accumulate enough for all my figs. If anyone out there can help me out or point me in the right direction i would greatly appreciate it. thanks!!

    I think the seller was Eternian He also sold them here on the .org if I remember correctly. They are by far the best stands I've seen or used for the vintage figures.

    i use some of the stands from the battle of eternia game. i think they are the best out there since they were specifically made for MOTu figures. i only have a couple but it works out for the couple figures i have that can't stand anymore.
    LOOKING for these MOTU Full Cardbacks:
    -Skeletor w/"original" promo on front
    -Man E Faces w/ "extra weapons" promo on front
    -Trap Jaw w/o Ring Promo on front & newer figures pictured on back
    -Tri Klops w/o Ring Promo on front & newer figures pictured on back
    & Mantisaur Empty Box (USA) Version

    I havent used this for my vintage MOTU but i have used it for other figures i had. The puddy adhesive that is used to hang posters on the wall. for me it works great. you put a lil bit on their feet and press then to your shelf and there you go. It doesnt leave any marks. Hope that helps

    I like these. I only use one peg though, both make the figure look wierd when they are standing.

    Display Stands

    Hi Gang,

    I want to display my vintage figures and wanted to know if there are stands available to keep them from flopping over. I don't want to put them in those star cases. I am also looking for a Faker decal scan.

    Thanks,
    Jay

    Best way I have found is blu tac. It has even helped straighten out twisted leg bands on one fig.

    I have stands that were made for the original line in the 80s. I believe they were from a game or something. I have about 30 of them, and they are all black. I'm sure you can find them on Ebay. They had a clip that sliped over there feet.

    There is a member selling some, whic you cans ee at this link:

    I use 'Kaiser Stands' in the 'Strawberry shortcake size.



    I have Black ones for MOTUV figs.

    just enter Kaiser Stands on an ebay search!

    I had the battle for eternia ones, but was always worried they would scratch the boots!

    I have a bunch of those stands in black. They work fine on He-Man and Skeletor, but they don't work with figures who have larger feet, like Hordak.
