Why shouldn't stands be included you ask?
Well first off I don't want to pay an extra $1. when Hasbro says we had to raise the price to cover the increased cost of including the stand.
Second, I feel the stands should be the choice of the collector. If Hasbro made them they'd probably not standardize them and would have different ones for different figures bringing more chaos to displays. It would be nice if Hasbro made bundle pack sets of stands available and perhaps in clear and various environments like forest, snow, grassy and desert color if enough interest was there for other colors.
Anyone in deperate need of stands can already order them through www.realstands.com anyway.
