Finally managed to get some photos of my solution and thought I would post. I mounted a small magnet in the bases and retained the center section of rings to mount a small piece of metal. A circular Lego piece was the perfect size to help bring magnet to right height and help with gluing to base.

The strength of connection is just right. I'll try to post a short video in the files section.

Sweet! This looks really great. I can't wait for your video in order to try it out. I'm always sweating like hell when I have to attach a ring, fearing to ruin it.

Great idea, I wish I kept my centre bits for these now.

That's cool. I'm not sure if this is because you think the rings can't be removed/placed without taking off the standee but you can.

While primarily used for killing vampires, a wooden stake to the heart is also highly effective against most other opponents.

whenever I can.

Anyway, if that doesn't convince folks, I would have to say that, for some inexplicable reason, I have not discarded my center bits and would donate them to the cause for somebody who may need them. GM me.

You know, after a while that setup might get a bit loose... That might be the only possible downside to this.

Same here. These stands are amazing and enhance the game overall in more ways than one.

Problem is, With customs, transport and price of the stands combined, they will cost me roughly the same as the game itself.

Aj, but is it worth it? Not the fact itself but the desire will decide if you do or not

Luckily, my daughter did not scatter the center pieces of the rings after I gave them to her (she loves to play with leftover punchboard pieces) and I could reclaim them.
I used tiny magnets as well, but left the LEGO pieces out.
Works like a charm. Thanks for this brilliant yet simple idea!
