    Some black figure stands came with the vintage board game. They were included so you could use actual figures instead of the cardboard cutouts. If you don't loosen them up first, they'll sometimes dig little impressions in your figures' feet, but just soften them (heat works great) and you're good.

    Somebody once reversed engineered those exact stands and also cast them in blue and red. I bought a bunch of the red ones one time and they were great. I don't stand my figures anymore (no room), so I gave them all away to people who might use them. I do still have the 10 or so that came with the vintage board game. They're easy to find in incomplete game auctions, and you might also get a bunch of the cool gold double sided power swords!

    That's one of many options, but I like the idea that they're mattel product meant specifically for the figures. They don't work on some figures, but those same figures seem to stand just fine (leech), except for the really odd ones (Twistoid etc).

    -cheers

    I actually bought a bunch of black Kaiser stands for 5" figures. You can even use them to hold up Twistoid and Rotar. I can't post a link here but you can look them up on Amazon.

    Stands for Original Figures?

    Some years ago on the forums, somebody was offering stands for original MOTU figures. I recall they were just rectangular plastic with foot clips, and maybe came in black, red, and whatever other color. I seem to recall they had a site where they sold them, as well.

    Anyway, come 2013 I've been looking for some and have had zero luck finding them. Anyone recall these, or know of a good alternative? Searching the forums hasn't given me much to go on.

    EDIT: Whoops, admins redirected me here. After browsing this, I think they were repros of the board game stands that Jawbridge mentioned.

    These Kaiser stands for 3.5" to 5" figures seem like they are a good bet. The product description says they stand height is adjustable to between 2-3", and the King Randor figure I'm holding measures just under 3" from waist to foot:

    I'm going to get 12 pack and see if they work for vintage MOTU. I'm also hoping these will work to hold up my female Thundercats figures, as they don't like to stand on their own very well.

    I use Kaiser 1001 stands, and they seem to work fine. But I prefer the stands that came in the MOTU board game.

    I've made two variation for my collection...

    The GrandStand for displaying figures:










    and the FootLocker for storage (smaller lighter), but after testing they work well for display purposes as well:






    I initially made the FootLocker to mount on my loose figures in storage, to keep the legs locked into an optimal stance to keep the legs from twisting and hence preserve the leg rubber. Both the stands makes even loose legged figures stand and display really well. I'm designing a version to accommodate my other figures with the bulkier feet now, like Beast Man, Buzz Off and Trap Jaw.

    Those are brilliant!

    Skeletor, if there's a good bone in you, send help!
    There isn't! Never has been, never will be.

    MOTU-POP Figure Stands

    Hey guys just checking if anyone else has tried the Shapeways Simensays figure stands. I got most of my figures on them. Simensays just announced a new 'LadyLocker' figure stand for Teela and Evil-Lyn. I am going to try one for She-Ra too. Anyone have any recommendations for other options on Princess of Power figures?

    You can preview it here:
    https://www.shapeways.com/product/NW...ionId=63621420

    The stands are about $5 a piece. I have been ordering 5-6 a month so it's not so much $$$ at once.

    There are now four kinds of stands: FootLocker, BigFootLocker, ClawLocker and LadyLocker

    Here are the ones I have used for each of the vintage MOTU figures.

    FootLocker:
    He-Man 1982
    Man-At-Arms 1982
    Skeletor 1982
    Mer-Man 1982
    Zodac 1982

    Battle Armor Skeletor 1984
    Mekaneck 1984
    Fisto 1984
    Webstor 1984
    Kobra Khan 1984
    Jitsu 1984
    Sy-Klone 1985
    Spikor 1985
    Stinkor 1985
    Saurod 1987
    Snake Face 1987

    Big FootLocker:
    Beast Man 1982
    Stratos 1982
    Man-E-Faces 1983
    Trap Jaw 1983
    Dragon Blaster Skeletor 1985
    Thunder Punch He-Man 1985
    Two Bad 1985
    Roboto 1985
    Moss Man 1985
    King Hisss 1986
    Rio Blast 1986
    Snout Spout 1986
    Scare Glow 1987
    Ninjor 1987
    Blast-Attak 1987
    Mosquitor 1987 (sorta works)
    Sssqueeeze 1987

    ClawLocker:
    Buzz-Off 1984
    Whiplash 1984
    Clawful 1984
    Hordak 1985 (sorta works)
    Rattlor 1986 (sorta works)
    Tung Lashor 1986
    Hurricane Hordak 1986 (sorta works)
    Buzz-Saw Hordak 1987 (sorta works)

    LadyLocker: (going to order three and try one on She-Ra to see if they work on those types of figures as well)
    Teela 1982
    Evil-Lyn 1983
    Sorceress 1987

    The figures that won't work with these stands are:
    (do not use rubber bands in legs)
    Flying Fist He-Man 1986
    Terror Claws Skeletor 1986
    Dragstor 1986
    Blade 1987

    (feet are big enough or they don't really need a stand)
    Ram Man 1983
    Orko 1984
    Leech 1985
    Mantenna 1985
    Extendar 1986

    I honestly do not bother with stands. I don't like the band over the foot, it's highly visible and seems like a risk of scratching paint. Most of my figures are on small shelf boards, often against a wall and don't need them. Only my basic He-Man & Skeletor stand free, Skeletor balances on the staff.

    And the cost, well.... at $5 per stand plus postage, with a large collection that will get expensive. Counting my figures, excluding any that can't use the stands(females, Leech, etc) that's 38 figures. $190 to buy stands for them if I used these, not counting postage.

    Let us know how those work on POP figures. I've used Kaiser 1001 doll stands for my POP, and I really dislike them. They come apart very easily and the figures slide around.

    These look really cool. I had been using the stands included in the board game for my MOTUs, but these look like they might work very well.
