    Displaying 12"...stands?

    I finally have started my Star Wars room. Is there anything out there to keep loose 12" figures from falling over? Any suggestions? Thanks,
    John

    There are several different kinds of doll stands out there, the most common is a flat plate with a bar that runs up the back and ends in a hoop that goes around the waist. In fact, that's what the SSC SW figures will come with, as seen in this (currently sold-out) generic version:

    There are also other companies that make stands which aren't quite as obvious, like a clear one that goes between their legs. And one that doesn't work too well is the boot-hugger where the base simply holds the backs of the boots in place.

    Careful with some of the doll stands. Some are more suited for Barbie bodies so they hug a SW figure too high as the waist is in different positions. I know most are adjustible but a few doll stands I got early on just weren't suited for the SW style bodies no matter how much I fiddled with them.

    I didnt know about those 12" figure stands JT, thanks for the link. Too bad they're backordered. I could use some for my Monsters.

    Check an arts and crafts store for generic versions that run about $2 or so. Look in the doll area.

    Yeah, over the years I've bought about 30 or so at Wal-Marts art and crafts section. They sell a decent one with a wood base for around $3. Works great on any 12" figure.
