ToyFarce News: Scientific Toy Study - That Figure That Always Falls And Leans Against The Glass Cabinet

Here is a new series of articles from ToyFarce: the Scientific Toy Studies. In that series, we will ask expert scientists from all over the world about those recurring issues that toy collectors all have at one moment or another. This week, we asked about a simple, yet annoying event that keeps happening over and over again: That one figure that can never stay up, and just leans against your glass cabinet door. It never fails!

We asked 3 scientists from the Netherlands to help us with that one. First, they needed some material to study. We sent them our very own Black Skull from the DC Collectibles Batman: Arkham Origins line, who has been falling forward and leaning against the Detolf door daily since October 2013. What is the phenomenon behind this? Our scientists investigated...


After several days of collecting data, and filling several blackboards with all sorts of mathematical formulas, the scientists came to the conclusion that the figures that keep falling forward inside glass cabinets are just unbearably stubborn and will keep doing that until they are either leaning backwards against something, using a stand or secured using blu tack or even super glue. In the meantime, here is a tip for how to put them back up without having the entire shelf falling down when you open the door: Use a long stick (for example, chopsticks) that you place on the inside of the door as you open it slowly, in order to keep the figure from falling further down!

What other scientific toy study would you like to see? Let us know in the comments!

Ha! I have this figure and he does annoyingly keep falling over. My solution was just to twist the ankle until it wedges in to the pant cuff. He's been standing fine for several months now.
