    So I read a lot about Future to tighten lose joints on Transformers, but never had a chance to use it.

    Recently I bought G1 Wreck Gar and his arms were just a floppy mess. Put on some future, then a bit more, now those bad boy arms stay were ever I tell em.

    So thank you whoever thought of that idea. Brilliant!

    What's future? Is it super glue or something. Props to the guy who first used nail polish since its just laying around the house lol and I don't have to go out and buy it.

    "Future" Refers to "Future Floor Polish" which is a brand of *Gasp* Floor Polish.

    Future is a floor finisher/polish. People have used for everything from "tightening" up joints on Transformers to adding an extra shine to the old black polished military boots (excepted when it rained then they turned purple lol).

    Yes, who ever first thought "hey, lets see if this works", gets mad props from me as well.

    Also, from what I read, Future works better then nail polish as future doesn't chip.

    In the states, Future is Pledge with Future, for those looking for it. I still have Future from many years ago, and it worked like a champ. One of those bottle can last you YEARS.

    Really dumb question coming up, but does it work on plastic joints?

    It's an acrylic lacquer. Essentially a liquid plastic that air cures.

    My Warbot Defender was a floppy mess. I put future in almost all the joints now it's tight again. It's a TF collector's best friend.

    I think it's supposed to be something you put on a Terra-cotta tile kitchen floor so if you spill red wine on it it does not ruin the floor.

    Makes everything ultra-glossy as well, I use it as a top coat for anything that's supposed to have depth and shininess to it. Still have a bottle kicking around from 08! D:

    Not the same thing. I have both. Had some shipped to me from back in the states after being thoroughly disappointed with KLEAR. Sorry, europe has no equivalent.

    Any canadians out there that have found this? I've tried at my local Wal-Mart with no luck. Or I'm looking in the wrong section.

    This is a Radicon's best friend! They are correct that there is no European equivalent for it. Superquad7 was kind enough to ship me a bottle of Pledge with Future. It's fantastic.

    I believe REDLINE was the one to introduce the Radicons forum to it.

    they have it at Walmart in the section with all the other cleaners. Look for a clear bottle with a blue cap. Pledge with Future (I am Canadian BTW)
