An essential if you want to expand the playability of your SH Figuarts, Robot Damashii, SIC or whatever figures you have. Heck, it can even work with Gundam models if you can balance it right.
Functions just like an Action Base except that you don’t have to assemble it like a gunpla. Each box comes with three so that’s very thoughtful of Bandai. Price isn’t all that much either since one pack can be had for $15-20.
A lot of parts to put together or swap around though.
Takes no longer than 10 seconds to put one together.
Two types of holder: flat one which I think is more for RD/mech figures? Just guessing since it wasn’t really able to grip onto SH Figuarts.
The only parts you have to cut out and clean the nub marks for. These holders are for the human figures.
The curved grips is more ideal for gripping human figures.
Very nice fit.
The stage can also lift the figure very high as well. There is a slightly shorter rod that you can swap the upper one with for a better balance.
The shorter upper arm. The joints aren’t exactly what I call strong; the weight of the figure can just make the arm come crashing down if the balance is even just a little off. If balance is really off, then the rods might separate since they are only connected by a single large peg.
There is also one to allow your figure to stand… which I think is a bit pointless because SH Figuarts can stand well enough by itself ^^;.
Up to three arms can be connected onto one base… but then you wouldn’t have any arms left for the other two bases.
Like I said, the Tamashii Stage is essential if you want to expand the play a bit. How else are you going to efficiently do a double Rider Kick?
