No lean on mine either. Displayed mostly with cape for like 6 months. I won't kid myself though. Could be months or years, but I figure gravity will have its way eventually. Then I'll break out the fishing line because this Batgirl is just too good.

The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.

Here some pics from my Batgirl. Received her in April or May I think.

When I first saw the prototype I knew leaning is going to be a thing. So I'm not really bothered by it.
XM did good by adding the beam as support.

As soon as she touches it though, I'll add a tiny piece of soft cloth, to prevent any rubbing due to natural vibrations.

Damn, since I have heard about this issue, I have the impression that my Batgirl has started leaning too. I could swear the gap was bigger when I assembled her for the first time. But it could really be just my imagination. Im am really worried now.
Fact is...the response from XM is pretty weak. This should have been tested and prevented in development.

I read on facebook that two people had museum pose Batman statues that started to lean back. Is nothing safe?

Nope. Unless a statue is made of metal, stone/rock, or marble, the materials used in pop culture statues are susceptible to warping due to heat or even water. When I was new to the hobby, I looked up "cold cast porcelain" on the Internet, and it can dissolve in water. Metal rods provide some structural integrity but don't really make polystone or cold cast porcelain "stronger".
