Last year, I got a pair of clear Obitsu doll stands. They're light and minimally packaged, each comes in a clear plastic bag with a cardboard header. They're easy to assemble, and come with an illustrated instructions sheet. Each set has three lengths of rod, three sizes of claws, and a few more screws, nuts, and various other parts, so you can experiment with configuration.
You can configure it for any size from 1/12th to 1/6th. The only tools you need are a screwdriver, wire cutters, and a hobby knife to scrape off the nibs. Assembly is easy. The finished product is a little wobbly if you bump into it, but the same is true for most stands. Obitsu's suggested retail is 280 yen, under $3. Each set weighs only 60 grams, so they're economical to ship as well.
I would like to get a few more, I prefer them over the other stands I've tried. They can grasp from any angle, and also don't have any metal parts that could rust while in contact with the doll.
