Sideshow Has New Tron-Style Stands for 12-Inch Figures

I have a novel concept for companies that make large action figures: design them so they can stand on their own, unassisted.

No? Not happening? Well okay then. These stands are pretty cool in the meantime. They light up, they spin, they hold figures under the arms instead of around the waist, and they give you space to put your own nameplate. $40 may seem like a lot, but we’re talking about Sideshow and Hot Toys, so it’s really only, like, 1/6 of the price of a figure. And since the figures are 1/6 scale, that’s…cute.

But I collect 18-inchers, because size matters. Where’s MY Tron stand?
