di:stage Basic Set Black Ver. Part 4

Double the stage, double the fun

Another set of di:stage Basic Set Black ver. coming in to increase the playability of this display base set after the previous posting. ^^

Jumping straight into the content since all the parts were already introduced in Part 1 and 2.

Since they are not needed, the pins to hold the cover skin on the base are sealed in a small plastic bag and put away.

Combining the two bases forms a large 20cm by 10cm platform. ^^

(Left) The connection between the bases is very tight and leaves almost no gap between them.
(Right) The clear connector part linking the two bases.

With di:Stage cover skin on top the bases.

As shown earlier on, the tight connection between the parts made it impossible to fit the two cover skins' panels between the linking sides. ^^;

A duel scene can be created using the linked base and two display stand, as shown by Kamen Rider Thrust and Kamen Rider Axe here. ^^

A vertical expansion of the bases.

The clear connector and wall joint part are used to create the vertical expansion.

The display stand's flexibility has been increased through the unique positioning on the standing base. ^^

A more interesting duel scene between Kamen Rider Thrust and Kamen Rider Axe is now possible, and it's something not possible with Soul Stage Act 3 Action Support Clear Type too. ^^;

The connection between the stand and the base, as well as the joints on the stands are very firm. Making adjustments on the figures is less troublesome and worrisome because of that security. ^^

Here are more poses featuring various items from my collection using the linked di:Stage base.

Bringing in some Gundams after three postings on this display base set. ^^

The famous kick featuring HGUC Char's Zaku II and Gundam RX-78-2. ^^

That's actually the recently repaired HGUC Gundam RX-78-2 up on the base there. ^^

S.I.C. Kamen Rider Kiva with his huge yellow moon backdrop.

It's great to see that the clip stands are sturdy enough to hold a large cardboard such as this backdrop.

GN Sword effect with Robot Damashii [Side MS] Gundam Exia.

Plain standing pose of Master Grade Gundam Unicorn Ver. Ka.

It's obvious now why the di:Stage is meant to compliment the Figma series, apart from the fact it was produced by the same company. ^^ Even though its base size is indeed bigger than that of Soul Stage Act 3 Action Support Clear Type, as shown in Part 2, it's still more suited for an smaller sized figures, and the Figma line definitely fit the specs. Larger figures like S.I.C. Kamen Rider Kiva and Master Grade Gundam Unicorn Ver. Ka would need at least a linked platform of at least two bases to look good. ^^

More random cameo appearances of my old collectibles coming out of the closet to try out this display base coming up next in the last posting for this review series. ^^
