    I just got a voyager Animated Optimus prime, and his face mask is super loose, it doesn't stay up in fact.. Anyone know what I need to do to make it more solid when it is moved up to in front of his face?

    you best bet would be to jam something black in to the area under his chin. the head itself is a pain to take apart. or at least it was for me in my failed custom attempt.

    Dodgy pins are the new loose ball joints. I've bought something like six TF this year which all had badly driven pins which I either had to fix or return the figure because the dodgy pins had broken it. Now when I go to buy a TF I no longer look for rubbish paint apps but for pin problems.

    Can you push the pin back through? I suppose at the very least you could just glue his mouthplate up.

    Yup I took a push pin and was able to push it back so it's in both holes. It looks like they cut the pin like 1mm to short or something.. oh well. it works now at least!

    Ebay:
    You make him about 9 Jagerbombs, 3 Long Island Ice Teas, 4 Fuzzy Navels...
    and if you both aren't tight by then, you need REHAB.

    J/k. Couldn't resist.
