    My friend gave me all his Transformers.... And RID Rail Racer is one of them... So I have the 3 trainbots combined and he seems VERY LOOSE!
    He can't support his own weight and his head is very loose.
    Does anyone know of this problem with him and knows how to fix it....
    But he has been just sitting around and collecting dust....
    AND NO, HE IS THE REAL THING NOT A KO!

    I wish a friend would give me all his transformers! Anyway, use Future Floor Polish on the joints to tighten them up.

    My Rail Racer is loose too. And it was like that right after I completed the set way back when they were first released.

    Most of the joints are ball joints if memory serves. Just pop all the ball joints apart and carefully coat the ball portion with a thin layer of either super glue or clear nail polish. Allow it to throughly dry before you reassemble them (especially if you use super glue).

    For those I'm not entirely sure if the nail polish/super glue trick will work as well. On the hinge joints it should work OK to build up a thin layer on each side of the hinge. Take a look in the Radicon's tutorial section, there should be a few tutuorials about tighening up loose joints.

    From my experience, ANYTHING popular can be KOed. They may not be as easily found now, but they existed at one point or another.
