Mini disaster has struck and I need some help. The stand adapter for my Metal build Aile Strike just broke. (tab snapped off, why was this piece made clear plastic? :wacko:). I'm not sure how familiar you are with Metal build stands but I was hoping you could help me out with a printed replacement.

I really need to take like a whole day and get some of my Yetistands back out of mothballs and change some Valks around and get them on some stands. Just not enough time anymore...:(

Finally got around to setting up the stand. thx to YetiStand and forum members for pics and advice.  I did end up purchasing 2 longer screws and lock nuts from Home Depot, no big deal.

Yetistands can help you save space and there are adapters for pretty much any Valk you want. Get on it!

I do wanna make a plus display with the 19,11,21.  And hanging that PF sdf-1 of the wall would be cool.

Sounds like a good plan! I really like the wall mounts.

if you want it, get it. it saves a display space since you can display 2 for the space needed by 1.

So I ordered my first stand, a Beta with etched Kite, and several accessories.....though I don’t think I got everything I need. I bought 2 banking adaptors but do I still need to buy the fighter mode extensions? Won’t the banking adapter attach to the fighter mode stand adapter included with the Valkyrie?

Also, any possibility, Yeti, that you could make adapters for Eaglemoss stands? All of their models use the same sized peg for their clear stands. I’d love to display my Battlestars in formation on a YetiStand. Eaglemoss has a ton of different ship models, 1 stand adapter would serve them all. ;) just a suggestion.

Does Yeti make stands regularly? I ask because I placed an order a few weeks ago and haven’t heard anything. I’ve messenged him on his sight a couple times as well about customizing parts ect...nothing. Not sure if I need to get my money back if he is not in business anymore.

You can try I guess to PM him here directly. If you hover your mouse on his avatar/name, it shows that his last login was Wednesday (5/22/2019).

When I purchased my Yeti Stand Alphas it did take some time.  It was highly dependent on what he had on hand at the time and when he would get restocked from his suppliers.  In my opinion, they are well worth the wait.

Yep, no rush when it comes to the best stands you can get. He will take care of you sooner or later.

Thanks guys. I have no problem waiting and know that the stands take time (his site does does say 2-4 weeks) It’s just when I send questions, NOT about when will my order be ready, and get radio silence, that’s when I worry. A little communication goes a long way.

Hi guys, I post a my Arcadia M&Ms in the M&M thread a while ago.  Today I got an Alpha stand in the mail and it's awesome.  I'm still working out how to best position and configure the arms.  I'm so impressed with the quality, versatility and ease of set up of the stand.

Here are a couple of pic.  Sorry about the quality.

Here's one just to see the stand a little more clearly

This set up uses the following bits:

YetiStand Alpha Standard, elbow, 2 x YA banking adapters (for Arcadia valks), dual arm

Hey ChaoticYeti, will you be making new stand adapters for the VF-31S DX Armored Parts and the Arcadia SV-51y (I know this comes with a fighter adapter but it just seems incredibly insecure. Thanks!

Macross figures are starting to price me out of collecting them, honestly. I have not gotten a chance to play around with the armor packs, and am not considering getting the updated 51's at the moment. Can you send me some pics of what the armor packs come with and what their issue is? I do think the 51's will use the same style peg adapter ported pieces that yamato did. If not, I am more than willing to come with something for them.

Just tried the VF-31S Super parts on the dx standing adapter and it seems to be holding okay despite the heavier weight of the figure. I will let you know if anything changes. Thanks.

Saburo reached out with some needed measurements. I'm working with him on a reinforced adapter. Stay tuned.

The Armored 31 is beast and did not fit into my standard dual YetiStand configuration. I have been trying out different configurations and here is best setup I have come up with that is Detolf compatible. 

Please post up your Armored 31 YetiStand setups.

Nice!  Does it sit too far back if you don't use the elbow at the base?

Good Lord are these fast-packs getting ridiculous! :shok: And I thought the Armored 25 was big!

I think it will be ok without out the elbow.

Hi guys (and gals) I'm a little bit lost as to what Yeti parts to buy for my DX VF-1's Valkyries. I need 3x Bases (1 Valkyrie on each base) three arms linked together on each base for height and adapters with the option to pose both banking and straight (and of course Gerwalk & Battroid) for all 3 bases.

What should my parts list look like? 
Thank you

Let's see if I understand you.

You have three DX VF-1's that you want to display in the three modes? Battroid, Gerwalk, Fighter?

How high do you want them? You say you want extra arms. I don't think you realize how tall that will make them. Arms are cheap though so I guess if you think you want to have them that far off the deck and you change your mind you're not out a chunk of money. IMO the two arms that come with the stand are plenty. My 1/48's all have only one arm (I didn't use the second arm that came with the stand).

-YetiStand Alpha x3

https://www.yetistand.com/product/yetistand-alpha

-DX banking adapter x1 (this would be to bank fighter mode)

https://www.yetistand.com/product/dx-banking-adapter

-DX standing adapter x2 (these would be for Gerwalk and Battroid.

https://www.yetistand.com/product/dx-standing-adapter

You may want to wait for more people to chime in to be 100% sure I have this correct.

 

1/48's in Battroid with only one arm for height pictured here:

1/48 in Fighter with only one arm:

I don't have any 1/48's in Gerwalk set up right now. Planning on doing that later today.
