Hoping for some tips or tricks here. I have several Hawkgirl figures, some turned into customs, some just figs. Almost all of them are leaning more and more forward to the point where it's a matter of time before they won't stand.

Has anyone else experienced this? Did you fix your figs? How?

My Hawkgirl is the original first release single. She has been standing on a poker chip ever since I glued her there... It has more sturdy and stronger ankles than the 3-pack versions... I kept this version and gave away those recent ones... May I suggest you use doll stands with a waist grip for these newer JLU figs. Using other figure stands won't help... 8)

The famous Doll Stands. Does one know where these can be purchased? I remember there was a website that sold them for a reasonable price.

If you're gonna glue em anyway, grab a straw. Glue one end to the bottom of the hair and the other end to the stand. That way the weight isn't on the legs but on the middle part of the body.

The doll stands are awesome. I have several of them on my shelves. My Hawkgirl stands just fine though, both the regular and Shayera versions.

So I'll ask again, where do you get these doll stands from (and what size do you need?)

I don't know about the size needed but in the past I have seen those stands in the Walmart craft department and at Hobby Lobby.

Well by far, my Shayera stands better than my regular Hawkgirl and JL Hawkgirl. I didn't even need to hot glue to a poker chip.

Don't know if it's the case at all Wal-Marts, but I went looking Saturday for a large doll stand for a friend and was told that the doll stands had been deleted from the modular. Hoping they'll be back with the after-Christmas reset...

Actually, I bought them on e-bay. Found a lot of ten of them. You would need to get the stands that fit 3" to 5" figures. It'll tell you what scale figures they fit.

Thank you. I'm going to search around then.
