Mattel Showes Off Their New Flight Stands
June 5, 2013

Today over on they gave us our first look at there new version, their 2.0 version of action figure flight stands.  We knew these were coming, but have been waiting to see what the redesign would look like.   You can see that they changed the base on this version so it takes up far less space than the original version.  It also looks like you can store the spare clip on the “stick” of the stand.   Here’s the description from the sales page:

Have your flying figures been grounded too long? Take your collection up a notch or two with our new and improved Flying Stands 2.0! Made of clear plastic, each stand has multiple points of articulation, comes with 3 snap-on C grips, and features an extending base for truly superior height. These stands can accommodate a variety of your favorite 6” scale figures from lines including MOTUC, DC Universe, Ghostbusters™, and others.

Figures shown are for demonstration purposes only and not included.

It appears you will get 2 stands for $15.  These should be on sale as part of the June sale on   You can see the sale page for these here.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on,,, Boing-Boing,, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
