    Hey guys, don't know if this is widespread enough for me to get an answer, but I just got my Swindle and blurr (plus Onlydesireableforachainsaw Lockdown) and these two are suffering from problems.

    For Swindle, his chest in robot mode, the part that folds out and contains his gun in it? when i close it without the gun it flops out as if there's nothing to secure it. Any way to fix it?

    For Blurr, his shoulders don't peg securely into his chest. Any way to fix it?

    Swindle's chest is widespread, I think your Blurr problem may just be rotten luck.

    As said above, swindle's chest piece is widespread.
    I figure the nailpolish solution will work here.
    As for blurr, do the shoulders slide
    in and out without snapping into place,
    or is it too tight to get it to snap in at all.
    On mine, one shoulder snapped in easy, one wouldn't.
    I pushed hard and it finally snapped it in.
    Hope you get them to work.

    same here, but my swindle had a loose arm and the mini fusion cannon was also loose, so I left blurr alone, but with swindle on the chest, don't leave the leg/waist flaps loose or out, because that hold the chest for me, and the rest I fixed with glue, even though my swindle's arm got stuck, but now it moves really tight.

    My Swindle has the chest problem, a loose right arm that falls back to his side pretty much no matter how you pose it, and was missing his right thumb. I guess I can live with it, though. My Blurr has no problems whatsoever.

    If you look at the back of the abdomen part that flips down under his chest, where the gun is, there's a pait of tabs on the sides. Each tab is shaped like a T, and the bottom of the T's leg should slide up snug against the sides of the back half of the abdomen to create a snug friction fit. It's a teeny bit off, though, less than 1mm it looks like. Some polish on those tabs should do it.

    Blurr, for me, just needed to be forced closed as it was really tight to snap in easily.

    Swindle, as others have reported, has a loose chest piece. The nail polish/glue works well and I even ended up taking his knees and thighs off as well to make them tighter. A really cool little figure, but very loose out of the package.
