    all i can think of is to take apart the bicep and put a screw through the vent hole of the socket int the top dead center of the ball. however i am not sure if this would mess up alt mode though.

    so has anyone fixed this design flaw yet?

    It's just a ball and socket, can't you just use the nail polish trick?

    that's all you should need to do, as he said... its just that the ball joint is not really tight enough, with that shoulder piece needing as much pressure as it does to rotate out (or in) to keep it in place, so just put some future or whichever method you prefer to tighten it up nicely.

    well i know about the super glue and nail polish. i was just hoping someone had came up with a better method for this figure because the socket is not a complete socket it has a notch in it for articulation. thuse making it have weaker grab than a typical socket

    I found a method that works every time;get a cigarette lighter and run the flame around the ball on a medium flame until the plastic just starts to bubble.Let it cool and this makes a rough surface.Then pop the arm back on and you should have a snug fit and a stronger joint.Hope this help ya!
