    1. add some clear nail polish or future floor finish onto the pegs.
    2. Let dry. They must be completely dry!
    3. Click the nullrays in place.
    4. If they're still too loose, repeat from step 1 :)

    I didn't have the problem with the cannons falling out on my Classics Seekers, but I DID have that problem with my HENKEI Starscream...

    I looked carefully and noticed that the upper arm halves weren't completely flush together -- this is really important, as the "hole" for the guns is formed from the two halves. So I unscrewed the two screws on the back, took them apart and used an x-acto knife to trip off any mold flash that was keeping them from meeting 100%, then reassembled the arms and made sure the screws were in nice and tight and there were no gaps between the two halves.

    Now the guns stay perfectly, just as intended!

    As for the worth, really only Starscream is out yet, and the only real differences are: slightly different colored plastic (not enough that you'd even really notice) different, (more G1 and less stylized) paint apps, a random bit of Chrome on the guns, and a plain grey nosecone instead of a proper blue one. The only ADVANTAGE I see, that isn't sheerly a matter of preference, is that on Henkei his face is painted properly, like the USA Skywarp, instead of leaving it molded dingy grey.

    yeah, my Classics Starscream has the same problem, but Skywarp stays put (I hope that my Henkei Thundercracker won't have that problem)

    I like the black face on the Henkai Starscream, but otherwise prefer my Classics version.
