    Hi new here. Need some help with problem.

    Hi new here but have a problem and not sure where to post or to ask.

    First off I'm not a Twilight fan but I do like one or two of the characters, and one of those is Victoria.

    So friend got me a NECA brand 7 inch figure of Victoria. It's really nice but the stupid thing won't stand up properly without falling backwards at random intervals......

    I have a DST Wraith Queen from Stargate Atlantis and that thing has never once fallen over, even after bumping the desk where I have placed the figure to stand.

    So any tips on to how to make my figure stand properly without tipping over woould be nice and I'd be greatful.

    Oh also anyone know where I can buy a Resident Evil Alice figure or two if they come in various versions?

    I also have Cherry and Dakota from Planet Terror.

    Relatively cheap and an easy fix is a clear figure stand. It will hold the figure while you pose it. It usually consists of a clear base with a place for a ball joint extension that reaches up to hold the figure in place around the hips. Marvel legends came with plenty of them, even wall mounted ones (for archangel to "fly").

    Thanks for that. Wasn't sure if anyone would reply.

    The figure I have is the 7 inch NECA figure of Victora from Twilight.. She's not posable as the legs are molded in a pose of a sort already. The ankles do move a bit but that's about it.

    Your suggestion sounds great if they made them for my size figures. It took me ages and ages to get the thing to stand up, and I don't like being defeated but It's taken so bloody long I finally got her standing in just the right manner she's not tipping over, but that took a lot of attempts moving the ankles to get the perfect balance.

    I have the NECA Planet Terror figures coming soon so hope they don't have problems either...

    I have a couple of DST Wraith Queens from Stargate Atlantis and they stand up fine with no effort as they feel kind of heavy. But they have perfect balance for posing on a shelf or desk.

    Thankyou so much for replying and I'll keep your suggestion in mind for future use.
