Action Figures For the Questioning #011: Display Stands

I’ve been in the action figure world for about 20 years.  So, it’s safe to say I’ve got a fair bit of knowledge on the terms that tend to be thrown around by collectors with little or no explanation as to what they mean.  I generally try to explain a concept on its first appearance on this site, but much as Stan Lee once said to assume every comic book was somebody’s first, I too must assume that every review on this site might be the first to be read by a new visitor.  As such, I’ve decided to put together a guide to some of the more frequently used terms and names that might show up.

DISPLAY STAND

DisplayStand

What is it?:

A stand meant to aid a figure in remaining vertical.  More often than not, designed to be innocuous and small, but can also be large and obtrusive.  Mostly seen with more collector oriented lines.

Example:

Recent releases of Minimates include a small clear stand.
