    i really doubt it. mystique, captain america series 1, sometimes series 4 punisher, urban legends daredevil, series 3 thor, and a few others are the hardest to stand in my case. even galactus likes to fall over.

    Now keep in mind this is by far not all of them... I had to put away alot of my Spider-man 2 movie figures just because they didnt really go with the style of the other figures.. I only kept spidey ock and Green goblin.. I still have a bunch more coming in this week from rough and ebay things.. Any suggestion???

    OK well here is what i think should be fixed if you are looking for new poses
    venom-ive never read a single comic, but that figure always looked cooler to me if he had his legs bent kinda like spiderman when he was swinging

    iron fist-again, never read a comic, but he looks cooler in a crouching kung fu pose

    carnage-does he even have webbing?

    movie goblin-make him crouching on his glider, looks cooler

    storm-it looks alot better if you put one foot on one of the outside pegs of the storm, and one foot on the lower inside peg of the storm

    youve got an odd choice or two on your wall, and if anybody should be on a wall/in flight, it should be human torch, its tough to get a good natural pose with his base, but it looks good when you figure it out

    id put nightcrawler in more of a crouching spiderman type pose

    id put bishop in a ready to fight stance with his guns drawn

    id put magneto on a flight stand with one hand extended

    and if you are gonna be crunched for space, take the green goblin and hobgoblin and use fishing string to hang them from the ceiling of a shelf to look like they are in flight, i noticed you had tacks on the shelf, might as well use them

    kudos on the ghost rider pose, it looks really cool

    and dr doom looks silly,id make one arm at his side and one up in the air

    and battle ravaged spidey would look cooler laying down in from of rhino or lizard, or fighting them

    Heh, for the most part they are all just sitting there I figure I wont start trying to pose them until the bulk of them are all there :p.. And as for human torch... I have no idea how i could do that.. But i will try. Oh and carnage doesnt have webbing :p its a temporary thing.. I think im gunna have a chase scene on my ceiling between venom spidey and carnage since he does have the symbiote stuff to swing with. and biship is a major female dog trying to stand up :p

    some easy tips for posing*

    -Dynamic, the more pushed pose your fig is in.. the more spectacular it will be

    -Comics, refer to comic pics for classic dynamic poses

    -Emotion, the body has its own language, use it

    -Life, pay attention to human anatomy and poses.. and dont put your figs in poses that no human could do

    -Detail, if a leg is twisten the wrong way... a head tilted another... toes pointing up when there standing flat footed, etc.... you must pay attention to detail, these figs are HIGHLY articulate.. use it.


    if you need any more help, refer to my link... theres plenty of pictures where you can get some ideas

    yeah spideyboy :p i was looking at your pics a few days ago.. theyre friggin awesome. Big thing is I dont have alot of time to fiddle with them.. Tommorow im gunna try and work on them after I finish the yardwork. I got a cool collage of the X-men figures going. Right now I'm really waiting for all of the figures to come in and then I'm gunna decide what to do there. like a spidey collage a spidey rogues collage an avengers collage F4 collage ETC.. I'm gunna go to the hardware store tommorow and get some invisible wire and tacks etc...

    most of them are fine now. mystique hasnt fallen in a while. Thor will always fall though cause his legs are loose, but at least i'll be getting the WM one soon, at least i hope so. once i get my own house, i'll be putting some on walls etc.

    My Suggestion to SsM. When dealing with limited wall space...don't space the figs. As you get more and more you will need more room. Fill those gaps.
