    MOTUC Stackable Tier Stands Discussion

    Hey, he-fans I am a new member to the forums so please bare with me. I attended NYCC on the Sunday the last day of the con, and I notice on the Mattel masters of the universe display booth something new. This was put in about an hour before the con ended. To me it seemed like I sneak peak of some possible new tier styled stands for the Motu figures in the same style as the WWE stands that Matty sells on their web site. I might be wrong but please tell me what your opinions are on the forums. I would like to know what you guys think.

    I'd buy them. BUt they would need TWO levels like the WWE Stands. I have a bunch of WWE Stands for my DC figures. I LOVE THEM.

    Interesting. TG did mention they were looking into those for later on. Nice catch, no one has mentioned these at all.

    I really liked the WWE stands and I think stackable stands for MOTUC are great, especially with the typical space problem collectors have.

    So I´m really interested in this.

    They need a touch more work, but I'd really be into something like this. I'd be even more interested in a few different "themes"... but overall yeah- even what's in this photo beats the two types of stands we've gotten thus far.

    OH! Brian mentioned these! He said figures were on an Olympic-like medal podium stand. This is the only pic I've seen though.

    I'd buy them as long as they don't use those horrible pegs the other MOTU stands use. Those suck.

    Looks like a good base to put the Bronze King Grayskull on and put it in your Castle Grayskull.

    I'd get it. But I wouldn't need to use them. I got a whole room for my Motu stuff. I'd still buy them to have in the collection. But I do wish they are in some type of style. Like the previous stands. Those look land and dull.

    Just looked again they are in some type of cracked cement. Eh!

    No longer a "possibility".....these ARE the new MOTUC Stands

    Per TG, who just answered my question regarding these over at the Matty forums, these are in fact the new MOTUC stands:

    These ARE the new tiered MOTUC stands (well the work in progress stands, we are still adjusting them so the tiers are more distinct).

    Cool, I hope they end up being produced and that they also develop Snake Mountain style for the evil characters. I'm in the process of looking for acrylic tiers for my Detolf cases but maybe I should hold off for a bit!

    I actually thought it was the detachable piece from Castle Grayskull but wasn't able to verify with anyone at the time...

    Very interesting! I can't really get a good look at those in that pic--are they actual plastic or something else? it would be cool if they made it so you could add the diorama piece from the first stands to those to make them a little more dynamic.

    Nice especially for people like me who display the figures in several rows in their shelf. The figures behind the first line will be much better to see with those.

    ...eh... as much as stepped stands for MOTUC would be nice to have.... with all the current Grayskull stands just taking up space and not selling already this.... seems like a waist of $$$ that could have been another figure.

    Cool, I really want some, thought the WWE tiered tands, which Pixel Dan reviewed, are really cool. Hope, these work similar...

    Those are fine if you are passing out medals at the Olympics but not for Masters Of The Universe.

    I'm going to pass on this.

    Those need a little more work in the sculpt department. That doesn't look too much like stone, but the concept is sound. I could see buying a few if the stone sculpt looked good.

    Uh, yup, nope, these suck. I think we all were expecting levels, meaning you could pose a battle scene going up steps or really showcase factions in a group formation. Having a elevated version of the mess we already have wont help ease shelf space. I like the look, and I see what they were going for with connecting, but really just doesnt work. The peg system has already also proven to be a disaster for most figures who have weak ankles anyway, its not supportive. Stick to arts and crafts doll stands.

    Er... I think people are jumping to too many conclusions. Remember, we get sneak peeks. I'm guessing this isn't ALL there is to the stands. I'm guessing in a pack you get this one, a level higher and then ANOTHER level higher. The point was to replicate the WWE stands, remember? I think we're just seeing the lower tier.

    Right now, I have a different system for creating tiers. If they make these like the WWE stands, I'll be ALL over them. I really like the look of them right now, but I would like to have different kinds for different factions. The reason the current stands are kind of poor sellers are that they don't work very well and take up a lot of room. If these are simple, permanent pegs that actually work then I bet a lot of people will be into them.

    Agreed...great concept, but it looks like something a kid made out of clay and baked in an oven for a school project.

    Ah ha, yeah, that's what it looks like. These seem like they were just cooked up for a display case for a show only. They don't seem to have the sculpting of the FH or any toy designer in them. They aren't terrible, for a one off custom. But it could be an early early early version, based on your observation of the sneakiness of their appearance.

    I agree that a clamp on the waist is the best option for stability and also gives a wider range of posing options. With all the articulation put into these, the peg stands just don't help. The uneven surface hurts the stability more than the pegs help. I've removed all my Grayskull stands and just have them on flat glass.

    I would love to see the flight stand, only shorter, so it was a posing stand, and crystal clear instead of smoky, as long as the plastic was good quality and didn't crack. I would love that.

    I have to agree with this. I would love this type of stand, but the sculpt needs work!
    Congratulations! MOTUC 2015!
