    NEW FLIGHT STANDS - w/ Pictures, Reviews

    Check 'em out (except you can't, because the big brains at Matty didn't include a photo to show us...)...


    http://news.mattycollector.com/blog/...endarticulate/

    Despite not having any idea what they look like or how they'll actually work yet, I am pretty psyched to be getting something better than what came before! Here's hoping they are actually CLEAR this time

    I noticed that too! It'd be nice to have something that has the capability of holding Swift Wind…but anything new is welcomed!

    I asked over on the Matty forums for some more info. You know, like the price point, how many per package, etc.
    You know, the stuff that should have been mentioned in this news announcement... LOL.

    Can't wait, didn't buy the first time around but maybe these will be better. Just a month off you would think they would be able to take a picture before announcing!

    Nice! Now maybe I can take Buzz Off and Sorceress off the fishing line that I have them on that's attached to the ceiling!

    Cool! I need some flight stands.
    Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.

    Man, I hope they are good! I did break down and get a few of the old ones. And they aren't bad. They just feel kind of bulky and cheap.

    I was curious if someone who has purcahsed the flight stands before could give some more info on these.

    How many "stands" do the packs come with? I know the v1.0 stands came with "I believe 3" of clips of the various clips for different figure lines of figures.
    But how many of the "Stand/bases" do the flight stand packs come with in each pack?

    Can I use them to help my figures stand? I don't want the flying effect, but an effective item to hold my figures with loose ankles.

    IIRC, the old ones came with 3 bases and 3 of each clip.

    I use my old ones to stand up a few... Goddess and Zodak are currently using them to "stand/hover."

    Good Idea! I use the Grayskull stands with the little grayskull piece behind the figures so they lean into it. Still I have a figure every so often take a dive causing a cascade effect Sometimes I think it's like Toy Story and they come alive when I am not looking

    Nifty! I actually like the old ones and use them still, but I'll get some of these.
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    I am definitely gonna get some of the new stands. That picture of Octavia looks great! Pretty excited about her.

    I have no idea how to use them to help figures to stand still. They are too high for that. You can use the small clip around one arm but I am not sure how it would look. They are perfect for Stratos and Buzz Off, And I managed to use them for Draego-man. Hope the new ones would be better.

    Hopefully they'll be adjustable so future females like Queen Angella and Flutterina can use them to 'fly' as the likes of Stratos and Buzz-Off could.

    Also, Octavia looks phenomenal! Not bothered about the pizza between her legs, as it's become known, although I hope they sort that out for Glimmer...

    I can't wait for these! I bought one set a while ago, and Stratos, Buzz-Off and Draego-Man have been hogging them.

    I find that it's best to just wrap the clear rubber bands around their ankles over and over again until it all disappears within the joint. I have probably five wobbly figures standing on their own now thanks to that trick.

    I'm excited to see these! Maybe my Stratos, Buzz Off, Sy Klone et all will finally take flight! Not only that, but hopefully you can use the stands to get some dynamic battle scenes with the figures.

    I'm excited that we are getting more of these....presumably new and improved as well! I got some before and like them pretty well, and would love to have some more.

    I find "the pizza slice" easier to accept on Octavia thinking of her as wearing a skirt, rather than a leotard...

    I'll see about them, I don't care, care for Stratos, find it hard to pose him in a decent pose standing in the process, the stands may actually help me enjoy him a little more. But as far as anyone else they are just standing where and how I want them....Maybe TOD Sorceress....but if they come 3 to a pack....It would kind of be a waste of money for me, as I only need one stand.
