    So, the other day I finally receive a complete G1 Devastator off eBay and everything is all well and good, except for my Hook figure.

    Once I put all of the Constructicons into individual bot mode, I noticed the metal mid-section to my Hook figure is loose as all get out. I half-heartedly attempted to tighten the screws but it did nothing, really.

    Am I missing something there? Is there a trick that I don't know about for this figure? I'm far less concerned when I combine them into Devastator, as Hook locks together really well, but as an individual bot, I can't pick him up without the midsection separating/falling down.

    Any suggestions?

    It's very common for the figure. My thought is to shave down the peg that the screw goes into, but only a bit. That will allow the screw to grip the metal piece a bit more. Other than that, do what I do: keep Devy together :)
