Whippy Superpose

One of the things I’d like to do with this blog is make people aware of some of the cooler things I come across. For a while now, I’d been looking for a way to pose my DCUC figures in flying or jumping positions. I have several of the so-called Doop stands from my Marvel Legends figures, but those only work if the figure has a hole in its back; not even the new Hasbro ML figures have that. So I perused the Web for another option.

I found one pretty quickly–an odd Hong Kong import with the odd name of “Whippy Superpose.” After first seeing them on eBay, I tried to find them at an online retailer only to discover I couldn’t find a reference to the things anywhere. For all I know, they may be homegrown by some tiny company in HK. In any event, I watched the eBay auctions off and on until finally, the price was low enough–and the amount of money in my checking account high enough–to pick up a few of them.

The stand is designed for 12″ figures, but it comes with two clasps, and the smaller one easily wraps around most 6″ figure waists. The height of the clasps can be easily adjusted using the screw on the back. The pole stands about 9″ tall.

As you can see in the photos, the clasp holds 6″ figures pretty solidly.

But what’s even cooler is that the clasps can be fitted to the Doop stands, allowing figures that don’t have a back hole to be posed in some really dynamic positions.

If you’re interested in picking one or two of these up for yourself, here’s an eBay auction. (PGPoA is in no way affiliated with the seller–if you can find these anywhere else, go for it.)

  • Thanks for the tip! I'm gonna get some of those "Astion" figure display stands. Love it!!

  • Paul, I will pay you one million dollars for one night with you. Indecent Proposal 2: One Flight Stand

  • I was wondering where that clip came from last night when I saw that Iron Man picture. Thanks for the heads up!

  • As I read this post, I noticed on my desk the Jim Lee box set Superman, that "flies" via a big steel rod, was way off center. Like Superman's facing some wind shear today. Those stands look pretty good now. I'd just be worried about breakage, either by me or the kids.

  • @Googum–They're fairly sturdy. I suppose the most fragile part would be the clips, but unless your kids are smacking 'em around, I think they'd hold. Then again, I don't have any kids, so I don't know the extent of their destructive power…
