    So, I love collecting pets, mounts, and other summons, but I've always wished there was a way to display ones you've collected without equipping them. So, I introduce to you, companion pedestals!

    The companion pedestal is crafted with 20 wood and 5 stone at a heavy work bench. Once you place the pedestal, you can put any pet, light pet, minion, sentry, or mount summoning item in it.

    Skull Pedestal.png Skeletron Pet display
    Wisp Pedestal.png Wisp display
    Slime Pedestal.png Slime Minion display
    Dragon Pedestal.png Stardust Dragon display
    Frost Hydra Pedestal.png Frost Hydra display
    Slimey Pedestal.png Slime Mount Display
    Pigron Pedestal.png Pigron Mount Display

    (Yes, there are some 1x1 pixels in the displays, but I had to shrink the items to fit them in the stone part, just like how items are shown in Item Frames. Also, I tested all the largest summons, and they all fit.)

    This could be useful, as only one mount/pet can be used at a time. This would allow players to show off all of the pets that they have gotten. The ability to show off minions could be used for decoration, or quick access to the desired staff. This could also work for fast access to pets and mounts.

    The item could be removed from the pedestal by clicking it again, but the summon would disappear with it. Summons with multiple textures (pirate staff, pygmy staff, optic staff, etc.) could be placed on the pedestal multiple times until the desired sprite appears.

    Thank you for reading my suggestion! Please let me know what you think in the comments!

    This seems pretty cool. For spriting programs, you can use piskel, pant.net or what I use, Gimp.

    For me, putting my summoning items in frames is not good enough. You have my support.

    Though, how would you remove the Item?

    Just click the stand again.

    So would the pedestal look differnet depending on the gen used? Otherwise I would use amethyst every time I craft it (being the cheapest and most common of gems)

    The gem used would not make a difference in the stand color. That could be an interesting concept though. I might see if I could do something like that.

    Idea...You could use it as a mechanism to make your doors lock

    The problem I see with this feature is that endgame or rare items could easily be stolen. Maybe make it so only the person who placed the item in the pedestal can remove it/ destroy the pedestal.

    You do make a good point here, but it could be the same for if you put it in a chest or weapon rack/item frame. You could just break it and take it. Good thought though!

    I think it should be crafted at a sawmill.
