Introduction: Mega Bloks/ Lego Minifigures Stands
There are many times where I find myself wanting to display my Mega Bloks Halo minifigs but they keep falling over because they have no stand holding them up. So as a solution I took one of the stands I and got the measurements of the stands. I created a 3D model of the stand that is pretty close to the Mega Bloks one. There are two major differences: (1) the bottom is not hollow like the stock ones (see pictures) and (2) there is no hole in the center of the stand (however that can be easily done with a drill). The measurements of the stand are very close to the original, only a few micrometers in difference.
I have made two variation of the stand:
The first one is the standard size common with all figures and larger Halo Grunts. This stand is compatible with almost all Mega Bloks figure that take three pegs to stand up (See pictures).
**The studs for this stand was off by a micrometer, so the minifigs don't stick to it as they do to the original ones. However, for the purpose of displaying the minifigs this stand will do.
The second is for the smaller Halo Grunts that were in the first few Minifig series and sets. This stand is also compatible with Lego Minifigures that only use two pegs to stand up (See pictures).
