Action Figure Flight Display

Posted in Action Figure Chatter

Hello everyone! Im a newer collector. Well I've been getting the figures since I was five but started collecting within the last year. I plan on getting an Iron man and War machine from marvel legends and I would like to display them flying or hovering. Would also like suggestions for displaying a spiderman web swinging. Thanks for your help!

I need to acquire such stands to do action shots with.

I use stands from these lines:
Play Arts Kai (SquareEnix)
Mattel Version 1 and 2
Marvel Legends (Toy Biz)
Tamashii Stage Act (Bandai)
Figma

There are also Obitsu flight stands. I've never used them myself.

All of the stands listed above, as with anything, have pros and cons. It all depends on how you are going to display them. You can also use fishing line, twist ties or that stretchy clear plastic used for making bead bracelets to suspend figures in the air. I've been using all of those methods for years, nothing has taken a tumble yet. If you start using diorama pieces or get a bunch of figures together, you can always balance or lean figures on them to create the illusion of being suspended in the air.

You also have the option to make them yourself if you are so inclined. The information can be found all over the internet. Never done this myself.

Bandai and Figuarts flight stands are great. They have a claw that holds the figures instead of a hole and peg system. Also, the clear rubber bands some figures have in their packaging can be wrapped around the figure and hung up on a tack or any other exterior fixture it can hang on. Sometimes I'll hang them by their armpit, neck, or chest joint. Get creative. For Spidey, you can do the same or you can tie a ton of twisty ties to make webs and then wrap them around his wrists. Then, you can tie the other end of the web to an exterior fixture or wedge it between a cabinet door or something like that. I can take pictures if that helps.

Yeah I did get him and hes in the flight stand. But the modern iron man doesn't have the hole. Also I eant to pose my spiderman figures web swinging and the goblins gliding but I have no idea about that either.

Most of the old Marvel Legends came with flight stands that plugged into the hole on the back of the figure. I'm pretty sure that Galactus series War Machine actually came with one if that's the figure you're interested in picking up.
