It all depends on how popular they are - might be something I try to keep in stock...

Update on my status:

Add four to my already-stated three. I might even be able to pay with my friend's ATM card so the cash-payment issue is no longer valid. But man, these bases are awesome. I'm stoked.
ime is of the essence.

Woo!  Alright, the order has been placed - will be getting in a case of these guys sometime this week!  Slight miscalculation on my part though - shipping was ALOT more than I expected, so the price is going to be a little higher than I expected - an extra $1 should be the most it increases (so instead of $5.75, they'll be $6.75).  I should be able to get these up on the website by the weekend (though something has come up that may prevent that).  I'll also work something out for those who want to buy ALOT of these guys - maybe buy 5 or 6, and get one free - something along those lines.  Will finalize all of this later this week.  Over and out.

I just got my 4 action bases from Fulcy who dropped them off at my place. (while picking up a few things) They're very nice! Bigger than I thought they'd be. The octagon without the square protrusion is 5.5" wide. For some reason I was picturing them to be more like 3-4" wide. They're still awesome though! I'll set one up later and take some pics.

I snapped one up quick and posed my MG Strike on it. Why the strike? Because the base that came with it takes up too much room. I'll be using this one from now on!

The base is rather nice. Many pegs for various heights and positions of the stand. Both support rods for the base are height adjustable. It even comes with a name-plate to stick in one of the holes and a padded sticker to protect your crotch paint.

I'm starting to think that 4 won't be enough! :lol:

I was watching this on eBay:

MOD EDIT: EXCESSIVELY LONG LINK

It's a recast of the MkII base. The bases you've got are cheaper, and surely higher quality. I'd probably want 2 or 3 depending on whether I feel like modding my Freedom Gundam's base (it's too tall and sticks straight up, yuck!).

Gah - thought I'd get alot more done this weekend than I did - but that's how it always is, isn't it.  I am going to try and get them up on my website today, but it'll more than likely still be a couple days away...

Alright people, the stands are in!  I only have one case of them, so it's first come, first served.  Also, as a special to FichtenFoo forum members, if you buy 7, you'll receive a 8th stand free!  Now, for the fine print - you have to be a current active member of these forums, with at least 10 posts at the time of this message.  Place your order like you would normally do through my website, and then PM me letting me know the email address your order was placed under, and how many stands you ordered, and I'll throw in the extra stand.  Thanks guys!

I threw my other 3 bases together today. I ended up replacing the bases of my Cloud09 and my Hazel [Stutzer] with them as they look much nicer. I'll have to get some more of these soon as they're woring out really great for posing kits and saving shelf space!
