The stands that come with Elites work for me. Usually its just the basics that have weird legs that tip over. Elites you just widen their stance so they balance better, kinda like how a ball player squares up to the plate.
I just stand them as is on my shelves and I haven’t had a Mattel figure ever fall off them. With Jakks any figure that used the Hogan boots would have loose ankles, but I would tighten them with a drop of super glue in the joint. Just keep moving the joint for about a minute so the glue dries but doesn’t lock the ankle. And after tightening those joints none of those figures have ever fallen either.

i'll take the problematic figures that are the most unstable and put them in a more dynamic pose. like crouch the figure into an attack pose that distributes the figures weight more evenly and brings the figure closer to the ground so it's less likely to topple forward. or if its someone who has dramatic taunting poses, i'll do that....like shawn michaels on his knees with his arms up
And definitely don't rely on those god awful diorama stands. Had Cactus Jack on one and he still fell...and right on top of my Bandai Dragon Ball Z Hybrid figures which are super fragile. Ahhhh
Don’t you hate that certain figures feel so fragile you either put them so far in the back of the shelf or put them as close to the floor as possible so that if they fall there’s a 50/50 chance they’ll survive. Once DC Collectables swapped their Icons figures to drop hips those figures became displayed on the bottom base level of my BvS Batcave so if they fell there’d be no distance to drop, because those hips seem so fragile.
