What will keep the bones Jabberwocky from flopping over?

What will keep the Jabberwocky from flopping over? Having handled the bones Bugbear, unless the Jabberwocky's legs are changed greatly, I'd suspect he model will bend noticably at the leg

My Jabberwock is actually going to be put into a diorama, based on the Tim Burton Alice in Wonderland film. My step-daughter is absolutely nuts for it, so I got her the Jabberwock, and she picked one of the bones minis to be Alice killing him. I'm pretty sure she will be partially propping him up, if necessary. It was actually quite fortunate, but there is a perfect Alice-from-the-movie mini in the vampire pledge, in the Fighters set. Third mini from the left. Her sword is a bit heftier than it really should be, but overall, the look is a great fit

I'm confused (easily done). Does the existing metal Jabberwocky flop over? I don't have one so I don't know, but if it doesn't have a problem standing upright, then I don't think the Bones version would. As suggested a heavier base would probably keep it standing without a problem.

I'm not talking about the Jabberwock tipping over, I'm asking whats going to keep the weight of the body causing the bones material leg and tail to bend until the fig is no longer in an Rampaging Attack posture, but a Digging in the Ground posture.

That's how I read your question.

 

I'm curious to see how it works too. At the price I wouldn't have minded ordering one, but I'm not confident it will stand up. I guess the one saving grace may be that the rest of the body is made of bones material and therefore so light that the legs and tail won't have much pressure to hold up?

Okay, just wanted to be sure what we were talking about. I'm not sure we can really answer that question yet. Overall the Jabberwocky is pretty thin, I'm not sure that it will bend under its own weight, but obviously I don't know. My first thought would be to cut joints and add pins or go the garage kit route and not even bother to make the cut just drill in directly from the outside and insert the pin. That should provide a sufficiently rigid internal skeleton.

i dont think there is going to be a problem. the bones minis are light as it is and as heisler said if your worried about it just add pins to it.

And it's not like they wouldn't have tested the material first. I have confidence that Reaper has done their research, and won't put out a faulty product.

But Frank did indicate that there was a problem with the Bugbear.

I was unaware of problems with the Bugbear. Anybody care to elaborate?
