The launch arm stand had four versions.

Original greenish gray, reissued a few times: http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10139388

Black: http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10048004

Silver: http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10048005

Dark blue: http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10114747

Main problem with this stand is very high center of gravity with no hinge at the top, so it cannot hold the unit safely at extreme angles.

They also made a smaller "Mighty block" stand: http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10088025

Main problem with this stand is the hinges are not strong enough without some simple modification, and it is not tall enough for most battroid mode VF.

Original YF-21 and all Sv-51 came with a very good stand, but it is not compatible with the stand adaptors in other VFs.

Speaking of stands from Yamato...

although a bit off topic, how are the Mighty Block Stands from Yamato?

they seem to be very cheap from HLJ..

They only have the "display base" left. They are just little shelves, no arm. Edited by CF18

Does the Tamashii stages even work for the Yamato 1/60 Valks?

I would think even the stage 5 can't hold those.

nope. just saying that if you ar buying a useless "block", it is even better to buy tamashii stages....

you can try holding it up with the whole pack of 3 stands, but I doubt some people would have the guts to do that...

I know right?
I've been looking for alternatives, and even considering those flight stands for planes, but can't find anything remotely decent.
The closest we'll get is the Shapeway Adapters for Gundam bases, but even those have certain limits
