Lightning Base (Red)
Review by JoshB
I saw this display stand at Image Anime earlier in the year, and I thought it would be a cool way to showcase figures for reviews or on the shelf.
Turns out, it’s kind of lame. Maybe I’m doing it wrong.
The Lightning base is an illuminated display base designed for use with other bases of similar style. They are geared towards SHFiguarts and Robot Soul sized figures.
Each base comes with a black base and a clear disc. Insert three batteries and switch it on, a color illuminates the disc.
Each base only does one color. In this case, red.
The light is not bright enough to make a difference in the daylight display of your figures. Turn the lights out and it might be kind of cool, but how often are you going to turn this on and off?
If you get more than one base you can connect them together, but they are not interchangeable with Bandai’s Tamashi Stands. That’s a missed opportunity right there.
You can also turn the disc to get a different dispersal of light on the figure but it doesn’t really make that much of a difference.
Overall it’s underwhelming, and at $14, not that much of a value.
