Future Otaku Box Item Ideas

Gently but firmly press down. If it still refuses to go, sand the peg, or route out the hole until it does.

I’ve never heard of getting a new stand. I always make what I have work.

Ive always done that but the peg is either not long enough or the figure may be top heavy?

Okay I finally got her on the stand and happy now :grinning:. The stand doesn’t suck at all and all you have to do it place her non peg foot off the edge of the stand and once you do that you can move her non peg leg back to the center of the stand and it won’t be wobbly and stand in the center with the peg leg. I’ll take a picture

I recently reboxed all of my figures, I kept everything too for safe keeping until I end up moving again.

Seeing as how I’m the only male living with two other females one being my sister and the other my mom. I would much rather own my own place then have her up for display. She would be fine to be put on display for now if her bra hadn’t fallen down when i carefully took her out of her box. She looks magnificent.

The only thing I had to glue onto my albedo was one of her wings, other than that, I haven’t had a problem with any of my stands. Hold a coin flat against the back of the peg so it doesn’t slip down to make sure it goes all the way into the foot.

Wouldn’t the glue damage the figurine over time at some point? It’s a figurine, any meddling to it and it could sustain some type of fragment, wouldn’t it? If it hasn’t then that’s a shock to me.

Nah, unless the figure is made of polyethylene or polypropylene plastic your good to go with super glue. I’ve used it a few times on different figures over the years to fix minor issues. No problems let. Most figures are glued together when assembled at the factory anyway and I’m fairly certain they use super glue, or something similar.

Vouch for super glue, just make sure to clean it up and use appropriate amounts so the figure still looks nice.

The figures are glued together at the factory, sometimes they miss a spot, sh*t happens, it’s only a wing, I can glue that back on. I never glued a figure to a stand, I just make sure the peg is in all the way on the tight ones because the peg will slip through the stand and hit the shelf meaning it isn’t in the foot enough to keep it on.

I only glue the figure to the stand if the figure does not stay upright on its own. With my Christmas Albedo figure, the peg on the stand that went into her foot was way to long she she was hovering at lease a centimeter above the stand and very wobbly. I snipped the peg down with some wire cutters so she fit flush on the stand (cut the hell out of my thumb on accident as I pinched it with the wire cutters squeezing to hard, it healed now).

The Albedo figure stood flush on the stand just fine afterwards, but a few days later she started leaning to the right and was getting worse by the hour putting stress on her leg and ankle. So I made a decision to remove her from the stand for a day or so, so the plastic has a chance to de-stress. Afterwards I decided to glue her feet to the stand, by filling the peg hold in her foot with a couple of drops of super glue and put a dab on the sole of her other foot and set her back on the stand braced with some boxes to help keep her steady while the glue dried. She’s have been fine and sturdy ever since!

I also had to glue one of her wings back on when I first got her as well, so @Keiffer you were not the only one who had to do that. The wing was broke off in the box.

Mine didn’t appear broken, it just looks like it didn’t get glue, no crust or stress cracks or anything.
