    I've noticed some of you have display stands for your Fett masterpieces and was wondering where you obtained them?

    Free standing toilet paper stands at Walmart $9.98.

    Modification is required, but it's easy to do. I just did one tonight.

    They have to be shortened which requires a piece of threaded rod. Even with that you have less than $15 into and you can custom select the height.

    Since it is a toilet paper holder, the base is really heavy to make it stable.

    I can post pics later, if anyone wants to see.

    This is what mine looked like when I bought it:



    Here is how it looks after a few simple mods.

    I cut down the tube.

    The inner rod that holds this thing together is only threaded on the ends, so I replaced it with threaded rod.

    Then I replaced the toilet paper holder with a piece of wood which I added a piece of foam and then covered in black leather looking vinyl.

    I had the wood, pleather and foam already. Materials cost me about $13.

    I tried the foam ball and did not like it and ended up with this.

    My son and I modified it in about 15 minutes.

    Since this stand is so tall, you can custom cut the tube to whatever size you like.
