There's no way to tie that puppet down to the set. One way you might try is to attach a rig to him by connecting a thick long wire to his spine to hold him up as he walks. Or, make your own feet by machining a toe in aluminum or brass. That would be the best solution but you'd need a tap and die set as well as a drill press/power drill. Plus cutting the metal would require some files and a hack saw.

I hadn't heard of those skeletons until you mentioned it. Looking at their web site, they look really cool. They might make good stop motion puppets if they can stand on one foot well. Or perhaps animated with a rig if they can't:

Hi John, welcome to our site! Your Indiegogo seems interesting, but hard to understand what the project is about. You did a good job explaining about how stop motion and CGI are at odds with each other. However, in the process you forgot to speak about what the film you are creating is all about. Who are the characters? What is their story? Where are they located and what is their plan or struggle? Those things would be good to know from the perspective of visitors to your page. In either case, good luck raising funds. It looks like you have a few backers which is great.
