I know this base is kinda boring so I find you guys some photos that were from di:stage announcement explanatory presentation which was held couple days ago. It showed that how you could have fun with the di:stage. All of those colorful background are made of paper. I hope Max Factory will post it on their website and let us download for free later. But most likely they will bundle it with the di:stage and sell it as a special editional. =/

——Description from Manufacturer——

Expand more; play more – the new generation display base ‘di:stage’ is here, starting with a basic design.

In order to increase the enjoyment of the figma action figure series, this new generation display unit known as the ‘di:stage’ has been created. It will soon expand into a series with nearly infinite possibilities, but this is the basic foundation set.

  • The base unit is a 10cm square, and the perfect way to display two figmas together.
  • Multiple base units can be connected horizontally via flat joints, or vertically via wall joints, allowing the stage to expand however you want it to.
  • A grappling unit that can be used to hold virtually any action figure is included.
  • Speech bubbles that can be used to show the emotions of the characters are included.
  • Using the ‘binders’ that can be attached to all sides of the base, you can create a background using paper vignettes, or cover the base with a cover skin. This allows you to recreate various situations to enjoy. Paper vignettes and cover skins will be available for download online, and are planned to be available in magazines.
  • You can combine this with future extention sets to create your very own scenarios.
