The stand comes in three pieces on a runner. The V part for the base, the main support, and the arm. It has to be put onto the support, but it can be turned a couple different ways. It doesn't turn or anything when it's connected so it works nicely to support gundams.
I prefer the Tamashii stands for everything except gundams. Both are fairly sturdy, but these specifically are static so they're technically more sturdy. Maybe only use it with 1/144th kits though
