    So when I first got Darkmount/Staxus his joints where really tight and amazing. But, now they are really loose, and his legs are cartooney floppy.

    Anybody else have this problem?

    Also, is there any other solution, besides superglue?

    put a small piece of toilet paper in the socket and reattach the leg, that should do the trick, that is what i do to repair loose balljoints

    Which works best? Clean toilet paper or used toilet paper?

    I have had this exact problem. No matter how many times I tighten his joints (with nail polish), it seems to just go back to it's former floppiness.

    Thanks, I'll try that.

    Charmin works best, it's got softness and strength to hold your balls in place.

    Joints! I meant joints!

    Actually, I normally use Pledge with Future Finish. It's a floor wax that you can buy for about 4-5 a large bottle. You only need a little, and it will dry in minutes, even on that softer plastic. Just be sure to remove the leg/part from the ball joint before you put it on, let it dry, and then reattach. Because someone, somewhere, will not do that.

    the united version of darkmount does not suffer from floppy leg problems..the two hasbro versions do that i own....i think it is the cheap ass grey plastic they used...my personal opinion...the united version uses a more muted sky blue plastic that is not as "squishy" or flexy feeling as the cheap A$$ grey plastic.
