Default Tilting Figure Syndrome?

Does anyone else's figures tend to move on their own after a few days/weeks, begin to slouch one way or the other?

Are you using the bases? with the DC stuff because since only one foot has a peg the bases can cause this, almost none of mine use bases for that reason

As long as your putting your figures on a smooth surface this will fix your problem.



I've even posed figures with one leg up in the air and they've not fallen over(does'nt work with all figures some are more top heavy) just put a little on the bottom of their feet and the will stay wherever you put them. I have a spiderman clinging to the side of my display shelf thanks to this stuff.

I use clear silicon. I put a drop under each foot. It holds them like glue, but it pops off whenever you want it to.

Wow, I totally thought the title of this thread was "Titilating Figure Syndrome"! And was all set to talk about hot girl figures you buy because they are ultra sexy! (Yes I have been in Kuwait WAY to long!)

If your action figures are moving around, they're most likely possessed or secretly vampires. I would recommend calling the Frog Brothers immediately.

I gotta get me some of that stuff. If the figure is really giving me a problem, I'll just put a drop of super glue under a foot or in a loose joint and they'll stand just fine.

Gorilla Glue works for me, but can be a real booger to remove sometimes ... I almost ripped Superman Blue's whole left foot off when I removed it from the base for shipping reasons ...
