    so i bought one off ebay and oy-dude is LOOSE. Wings flop around, legs flip down when in cassette mode. and he seems to be made of all plastic, no metal. did i buy a KO? and even if i did/didnt, any ideas how to make him less loose?

    he is metal, i just didnt realize it-doesnt feel as heavy as Laserbeak. even if it was/is a KO, id be ok with it, but the looseness is the real concern. the legs flop down in cassette mode, and the wings almost spin freely at the mid-joint on them. Any advice on how to tighten those up?

    The old, Future floor polish in the joint technique. It should tighten it right up. At least tight enough for display, too much playing with it and it will loosen up again over time.

    You can dilute it slightly with water and using a paint brush, let it flow in the joints via capillary action.
