Does your funko pop fall over or not stand up correctly? We understand the pain it is when funko pop stands don’t work anymore or as intended. Some funko pops are tricky due to their pose or built that way. They quickly fall because of small movements, vibrations, or push when displaying them on a desk or cabinet.
It’s important to prevent harm to the figure by replacing funko pop stands when they wear out. Understanding where to find replacement stands and which funko pops come with stands is essential in fixing this problem. Glues, tapes, or blue tack are great examples of ways to apply the stand to the figure.

Here we will explain all you need to know about these Funko stands in this article. So let’s dive in and start with the basics:
What are Funko Pop stands?
Funko Pop stands are platforms for your figures to stabilize their feet and secure themselves to be displayed. These stands provide the necessary support your Funko Pops need to remain still and up straight (forward-facing). Wobbly and unbalanced Pops make for a poor-quality figure display, and most collectors want to avoid that.
Newer funko pops use stands to show off flying or jumping poses with their big heads and small bodies.
Each stand has one or two small pillars or connectors.
These connectors get inserted into the feet of a Funko Pop. Hence, making the Funko Pop more stable and saving them from any fall damage. Although that’s basically how stands function, some stands allow you to place them in any wall, which means you do not need to build a shelf. Just plug the stand into a wall and place your Funko on top of it, and voila! Now you have stable Pop on display without a shelf.
Only some Funko Pops have holes in their feet which means they need a stand or a base to be stable. These Funko Pops come with stands. However, sometimes you will find a Pop that requires a base having no holes, and those which don’t need bases have holes in their feet.
Moreover, if the Funko Pop has a flying or a jumping pose, they have unique stands. These stands are attached to the back of the Funko instead of their feet.
Do All Funko Pops come with stands?
Funko Pops come with stands but only those that have clear chances of falling. Like a superman in a flying pose requires a stand. Otherwise, it will drop. So some do come with stands, but those seemingly stable Funko Pops do not. Hence, some Pops require you to buy stands.
Not all Funko pops not come with stands. Only a select few do and it is because some Pops are stable enough that they seemingly do not require assistance. However, small vibrations or even light touches will result in them falling. Hence, they need you to buy stands to help them be stable.
Why do some Already have Them?
Some Funko Pops come with stands so that you don’t have to buy them. These pops are usually those that require a stand. Otherwise, they will fall. That may be because they are in a flying pose or have unbalanced bodies. These stands are enough to hold down your Pops, and usually, you will not need to buy a separate one. However, there are custom stands if you need to add a new touch to the Funkos.
How to use a base to help stand a Funko Pop with no holes for pegs?
Your Funko Pop keeps falling, and you have to lean it against the wall to prevent it from falling, and it does not have holes for the pegs present in the bases?
Well, there are a couple of solutions to that:
1. Take a stand or base with no pegs.
2. Use any of these glues or tapes: clear museum putty, sticky putty, Blu Tack, or scotch tape.
3. Attach these to the bottom of your Funko Pop and then place them on the stand.
If you use scotch tapes, you usually want to cut them and place them in the direction in which the Funko Pop falls. If it falls backward, put it on its heels and do the opposite for the other direction. It does take a while to place enough scotch tape, but it is incredibly worth it. Moreover, it is so thin that it will not be visible. If you have a double-sided tape, it will also help your Pop stay attached to the stand.
