Castle Grayskull as the centerpiece. While for the most part MOTUC figures stand pretty well, I was concerned about the aforementioned chain reaction of one figure falling over and knocking down a whole row of other figures. Many of the earliest MOTUC figures have loose ankles, too, so Mattel's traditional peg based stands just didn't seem like they'd do the trick. After a great deal of searching I came across the stands I'm reviewing today from the Kaiser Manufacturing Company. While Kaiser predominately makes stands for dolls and teddy bears, it turns out these things are great for action figures. After experimenting with a few different models, I settled on the model 2075 Black Doll Stands for 6 1/2" to 11" inch dolls. These work great for action figures that are in the 7" to 9" inch range, particularly Masters of the Universe Classics, many NECA figures, G.I. Joe Sigma 6, and most everything put out by DC Collectibles. Ready for a look at these stands? Then join me after the break...
The two stands on the left are the same size; I've placed them at different heights to show how low and high the clasp on the stand can go. I have over 100 of these stands and have not had any problems with breakage or the clasp being too loose in the bracket.
Chewbacca from Star Wars Black) but for the regular sized figures, I use Kaiser's model 1175 stands for 6" to 7" inch action figures. These don't work well for MOTUC or figures with bulkier builds, but they work great with Star Wars Black and Funko Legacy figures. I have a couple MOTUC females on the smaller 1175 stands but overtime I'm transition all MOTUC to the the 2075s.
Clubber Lang agrees with me.
Here's a picture of a G.I. Joe: Sigma 6 figure using one of these stands. These guys are around 8 inches tall and they look fantastic with these stands. At some point, I think I wan to get my Sigma 6 collection all geared up with these nice stands as well. Since foot pegs are rather irregular across action figure lines (and sometimes even across figures in the same line) using a stand that doesn't require using them is a much better option.
These are definitely my favorite action figure stands I've purchased. I'm happy with both their functionality and how they display. Heck, a talented customizer could even customize the bases to add little touches like fake grass, rocks, or other environmental details, kind of like how the bases are decorated in miniature war gaming. Kaiser is my go to company for stands now. While they can seem a bit pricey, the quality is there and I'm thrilled with how well they work. Since these stands keep some of my favorite collections on their feet with style, I feel totally justified in giving them an Epic rating.
