I'm highly curious how people get these figures to stay in position without falling over. I've asked this question multiple times and have never gotten an answer. I'm especially interested in the ones that are obviously in a position to where they'd fall without some type of glue or tricks that I can't see.
Awesome figure/display. What's his name?
There's various ways of keeping a figure in an action pose, one way is to drill through the boot and foot and fix a peg that can be glued into a hole drilled into the base, it's pretty invasive and not something I like to do. Another way is to use some wire and fasten it to the leg with elastic bands, leaving a length protruding out of the bottom of the trouser leg, then again glued into the base at a position where it isn't easily visible.
Fantastic dio!!! I love all the details of the scene from the burglar grille to the bits of rebar sticking out, and of course the partial sign. You've really captured the scene so well. I love the figure also, he looks tense but determined, and the pose is fantastically lifelike.
Oh cool. Thanks. I've been trying to figure it out. I've got a little diorama being made for a Vietnam era Wolverine and I was trying to keep my options open. I didn't even think about the drilling! I've seen so many creative poses these folks do and all I knew is I could barely get a figure to stand upright without a base much less get one to stay put in all these dynamic poses!
