Any ideas on anything that might be used as a substitute for the original Toclafane stands? I bought mine loose without stands and can't seem to find anyone with extras.

On the cheap, I suppose you could use an inverted golf tee, glued to a wooden disc (get at craft stores anywhere), paint the whole 'stand' black, and Bob's your uncle.

You may be able to find clear plastic rods that are the same (or slightly, slightly smaller) diameter as the hole, and as above, make your own stand using a clear plastic disc for a base. Model supply stores should carry plastic rod in all kinds of diameters. I have some clear rods that I bought a few years ago to make custom lightsabers for Star Wars figures. (I also use the rods for "plastic welding," but that's another story, lol)

I found some of those clear acrylic rods at a crafts store after reading these replies. The closest size is a little loose, but I think they'll work. I just need to cut them & glue them to a base. Thanks for the suggestions!
