Yesterday, I went to the McFarlane Collector's Club website store for the first time in a while to discover that they are no longer selling accessories, which means no more Bag of Stands :(

Those may have been the best generic stands every made. They were perfect for so many figures right out the package -- Marvel Legends, DC Universe come to mind instantly, but I also used them, sometimes with a little assistance with my Dremel, with my Rudolph figures and practically any figure up to eight inches that needed help standing. They were the perfect size to provide balance without taking up too much space or adding extra height to a figure. When they went from black to clear, I do not think anything else could have been done to improve these stands.

I used to buy a bag or two every time I placed an order at the store, just to have them. They were cheap, but shipping made it kind of cost prohibitive to buy them alone. Unfortunately, I haven't purchased anything from the McFarlane store in ages and come to find out, these have been gone since late last year, at least.

I still have a few loose ones lying around and at least one unopened bag of 25, along with a bunch of the black stands that I had replaced with the clear ones. It's sad that they are gone and it will be even sadder when I use my last clear McFarlane stand.

If anyone has any extras or loose ones they want to part with, shoot me a PM.

Yeah, that's a bummer!!

I even called the Mcfarlane store here in AZ and they said someone bought out the rest of the stock about a month before.

I love those things! They work for MOTU 200X Vintage TMNT, DCUC, and a bunch of other random lines!

I'm glad I was like you and bought a few bags every time I went to the McFarlane store!
