    whippy super pose are great but like 11.00 a piece from china now... they used to be cheap until the guy wised up and raised prices.

    Hello from Bend! My best friend is from Bend.

    There is no easy way, none that I've seen thus far.

    If they sold clear plastic layers, I would build my own display. I've been to Bed Bath & Beyond, JoAnn, Michaels, Target and Walmart and nobody has anything similar. The only place I haven't tried is Home Depot/Lowes.

    My DCD EVS Hal from Sup/Bat last night broke. Super glue is needed. Damn.

    Ive done that, Ricky. Like I said in my earlier post the twist tie is for keeping the Lanterns in the hands of the figure itself.

    Also, another good tip, is the compressed air canisters typically used to clean computer keyboards, are great to dust off figures. Only press the trigger down half way if the figure is standing, but I really dont suggest to do it while its standing (for obvious reasons).

    another way is to put a drop of superglue in the tips on the handle...let it dry and then attach...

    works like a charm.

This enables you to see the figures in the rear very clearly. I use these plus a bit of something called "sticky max", it is like soft waxy stuff you just dip the feet into and it does a good job of keeping guys upright. The Star Sapphire figure is just a big pain in the ass.
    I went to BB&B over the weekend with my wife looking for something like a clear step display and couldn't find anything. We went to Michael's as well and the only thing that was comparable was their Acrylic Doll display cases which were pretty pricey.
