Does anybody have a tie fighter pilot (green carded) that actually stands up right . Mine always falls down . When I set it up , I have to lean him on his big gun for him to stay standing .

I did the same thing, but eventually used stands. It's just too hard to get them standing on their own.

There are action figure stands available. I have a few, and am in the market for more.

Yes, my figures go boom, too. Hasbro made them in awkward standing positions.

Mine stands up fine, but then again he's still on the card.

The figures are getting better at standing without the aid of action stands but some are still bad. The Bespin escape Leia won't without a stand.

I have no problem with my Bespin Escape Leia, however my DSE Han has decided that he is tired of standing up on his own, so now I have to use an action stand with him. I didn't when I first got him.

The most difficult figure to stand by itself in all the line would be Emperor palpatine flashback...Now that is impossible, you need the stands, the tie fighter pilot is difficult also, Figrin D'aan and Zucckus are hard too. I had no trouble with Bespin Escape Leia from POTJ though. (There are more, but i cant remember them now)

Maybe my BE Leia is just special!

I forgot!! The Trade Federation Security Battle droid is also a very difficult figure to stand up right.:eek:

I like the security droid's stance but you're right, Lobito, he is hard to stand up. Those commchips are coming in good use!

I've never had any trouble with my TIE Fighter Pilot or Battle Droid Security. The one that is hard to stand is the Emperor from the Final Jedi Duel! He keeps toppling backward and there is no hole for the action stand!

Heh. Good one JediCole... My beef with the TIE Fighter Pilot was the loose heads. I bought one and his neck joint was incredibly wobbly, So I bought another one and HIS neck was incredibly wobbly, so I thought they ALL were and never bought any more. Turns out I've got the only two "dashboard doggy" imperial TIE Pilots....oh well, mine stand just fine. Here's who can't or won't stand in my collection:

Nein Numb
Dengar
Capt Tarpals
Any of Jabbas Dancers
Any of the Modal Nodes
Labria the Devaronian
The Podracers


of course , this problem is resolved with nifty stands....

Which reminds me of the RANCOR!! I had a lot of trouble getting him stand up straight, at first he would stand perfectly, but in three days he was down again...of course if u put Rancor's hand in the floor the problem is solved...:eek: :cool:
