EMILE, for your information I really don't like both figures but I had Twistoid in the past. Because both figures do not have legs they move by rotation with the help of their stands. The only weakness about these two is that they would eventually cease to rotate when their stands start to tire from frequent playing. The pedestals, which you refer to as 'cones', don't actually function and all you have to do is spin your figure first then put it on its pedestal for (claimed) stationary action. The figure usually falls from the pedestal due to imbalance. I hate it!
