    My universe/classics Red Alert's shoulder joints are so loose they just flop around. Anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this?

    Future floor polish. Just put some on the joint it'll be tighter. Clear nail polish works too. Or superglue, but that's the worst option since it sometimes messes up the plastic and risks melding stuff together.

    I actually prefer gel style super glue, as it's the only one that doesn't degrade over time. You just have to be careful with it. Worked wonders on my Drift and G1 Whirl.
