Stands for ROTS figs?
« on: January 23, 2006, 02:00 PM »
OK, so I need to know if there are some type of Real Action Stands (or something similar) for the ROTS figs cause most of my ROTS figs have very shallow peg holes in the feet and they won't fit in regular RAS and they keep falling over.  Suggestions?  Help?

I took a wire cutter and just snipped down the pegs on a few of my Real stands to shorten the pegs.  Seems to work well for the Clones and other figures with shallow peg holes.

I've noticed the biggest problem is with any figure that has articulated ankles, preventing the peg hole from being deep enough.  I'd say Jeff's idea is the only option - I've never heard of different stands being available.

I would have suggested what Jeff said. ;)

You can make them from a cutdown plate of transparent plastic (every hardware store has it).
Polish of the sides and round em with a machine or sandpaper...


Then just put in a small screw, about 2-3mm thick and 5-7mm long, and do it in the right place... and than you have you're stand...

It's good when you have a glass-cabin, because the transparent stands almost invisible then....
There can never be enough clones.....

I just drilled the peg holes deeper.
