Default Problem With Poison Ivy

I got the Eaglemoss Poison Ivy figurine yesterday and it's teetering badly. All that hair puts the center of gravity high on the figure and it has a real tendancy to tip over backwards. Is anyone else having the same problem?
Since these are lead and quite pliable, I'm thinking I could just bend it forward on the base a tad, but I'm a little concerned I might crack the paint or even snap the figure off the base doing so. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. The figure is too nice to be relegated to the back row in case she tumbles.

You could stick a little bit of blu-tac under the front of the base.

Thanks for the suggestion. I considered doing that. but I move these things around a lot when new ones come out. Lead has a really low "shear" point and I'd like to hear from someone who's had to bend one of their figures to get some idea what the limit is.
All I have to do is blow on this figurine slightly and it falls over.
