It would be cool if they could be configured like the WWE stands, of course these ones can't but ideally that would be the best for display options.

    With MOTUC those steps should be 3" - 3½" and width: 14", so they go to Detolf cases and they have room for 4 figures per row.
    Pricepoint: max. $15

    Right now I have two Detolfs for MOTUC, so I would buy 8 stands with those dimensions right away!

    Did you ever find fitting ones for the detolf in Europe?
    I want to start using detolfs too

    Well, tiered stands for the line have already been confirmed & a picture has been shown, so I would say definitely.

    I'm pretty much a MOC/MIB guy now, but for figures I would or do have loose If done well I would totally be on board for tier stands. I'm not abundant with shelf space so anything that maximizes it is aces to me.

    No worries! I absolutely love them. After scouring these threads and countless google searches (I can't exactly remember how I ended up coming across them) IMHO, they're the best ones I've seen for the detolf cases. They fit so snug in the cases and still allow you to use the actual shelf for the front row.

    Like I said, or in this case typed, utilize the search feature and search for that thread as it's typed. Or search my posts until you get to it, but it's there.

    Looks like they really missed the point of tiered stands. We have figure line with what.. 6" figures and what they do, they give us stands that have about ½ inch step. Right now I'm really disappointed.. hope I'm wrong.

    Look yourself it looks like they have stacked two stands on the back. Step is so low it's hard to even recognize it

    MOTUC needs:Tung Lashor, Rio-Blast and rest of the Hordes!

    The tiered stands are a dissapointment! As said by Tuukka, they are absolutely wortless pieces. You barley can`t see the second row. Waste of time for a product with much potential! Easy pass!

    They are kind of disappointing. I don't understand why they just didn't stick with the way the WWE ones were made. Having the center be taller would be cool if it was just the higher one that way. But the way it is, you don't get a ton of clearance for any of the figures. And I'll be disappointed if you have to stack them to make them any higher! The WWE ones had different sizes so you could mix and match. This way, you'd have to buy more sets just to get some lift on them.

    I was really hoping to switch out the things I'm using now to get the height difference for these... but so far, if these are final I might pass.

    Gotta echo what everyone else has said, the tiered stands are a disappointment and completely miss the point of visible clearance.

    No thanks. They totally messed up the execution. The guys in the back will only be visible from the chin up...

    I think all the stands released thus far have been disappointing. The figs don't stay on them very well and they are super hard to get on there. Does anyone know of good waist stand for 6" figs or some other type of stand that works for these figs?

    The first stands were great, except they shorted the product of pegs....only 10 instead of 15...this will probably come with only 6 pegs not 12...

    If I just put mine up on the shelf in lines, the way I've seen some do their display, then these would be good. But since I'm looking to create more dynamic "battle scenes" and all, these won't work. I'm overall happy with the previously released CG and SM stands.

    knew i probably didnt want them. using motuc mailerboxes with greenstone parts of packaging as covers right noe. lifts em perfectly high and free.

    bot though i can think of some uses for these it wont be to elevate figures but as bases for custom display pieces ive made

    so as tiered display stands: fail. display bases for diorama pieces? maybe...
