    Do you prefer the Orko or Doomseeker stand?

    I think the matte black finish on Orko's stand is much nicer looking than the glossy Doomseeker stand that came with Tri-Klops.

    Are the two stands identical?

    Orko's stand has a balljoint on it, so no, they are not identical.

    I actually prefer the translucent base doomseeker stands from the Ghostbusters line to the black MOTUC ones.

    The archs are a bit different too. The doomseekers leans forward a bit more while Orkos is curved but shoots straight up. You have to put them next to eachother to see what I mean

    I hate the fact the base is black instead of clear. I donīt understand why. Visually is better the all clear stand for flying figures...

    I never noticed the little differences. Now that I'm looking at them Orko's matte finish looks nicer to me.

    Orko's stand. Though maybe in canon, the doomseekers don't tilt and they are always level with the ground.
    I love an all inclusive canon!

    I prefer the doomseeker stand. It actually holds the doomseeker up whereas Orko's stand falls over with the slightest little bump because Orko is to top heavy for the stand to hold him up properly!

    I dunno what you guys are talkin' about; my Orko floats on his own.

    Orko has a better stand BUT he is to heavy for it, it needed to be made to support him better... He could knock over with the slightest jolt.

    Orko's stand needed a wider base to hold his weight. If a butterfly flaps its wings in my backyard Orko falls. (don't want to know what happens in the other side of the world when my Orko falls down.) I dislike the black base on the stands...
    FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now I need a Crita!! Crita is to Mara what Evil Lyn is to Teela. If we ARE getting Mara, then we NEED Crita.

    Yeah, it makes no sense that neither stand (especially Orko's) wasn't weighted at the bottom.

    He falls if you try to pose him with his accessories In anything other than neutral position.

    Exactly! I cant believe how unbalanced he is, It needed a larger base! I think it should have been a straight clear bar, as opposed to the curved -still ball jointed,but straight up and down!
