Where did you get yours from? I would be using these for Sandtrooper and Fett costume displays.I have 2 of these that I recently purchased, though I got mine for $100 less than these cost. I really like them. I have one displaying my screen-used Dragon Corps armor (from Legend of the Seeker) which is a fairly heavy costume with a boiled leather chest, chainmail sleeves, heavy leather belts, and lots of layers. The mannequin stays up, though he is a bit on the wobbly side. If you're planning to use one to display something on the lighter side (stormtrooper armor, for example) then they are great!
