This is the type I use as well. They are easy to come by and not too expensive. They also do a great job in keeping figures upright.my favorite is still this one:
cheap and reliable. i get them at monkey depot
also the ones that come with the HT true type bodies. basically the same thing with a sturdier base.
nooooooooooo!!! LOL, aw man. aside from stands the joints in the bendy part are very useful for body mods.I ended throwing mine away
