Is My Fondant/gumpaste Figure Too Heavy?

I made my first figure (a scuba diver) which weighs a little more than 3.5 lbs! I wanted it to go on the side of an 8# square cake to look like he's swimming. I'm thinking its too heavy to attach with toothpicks/spaghetti. Maybe I can sort of rest him on the cake board leaning against the side and perhaps secured with a toothpick. In the future, how can I lighten up the figures? Thanks.

You can use rice krispie treats to make the figures lighter.
