    I bought some KO Classics Seekers and the wings are really floppy. In alt mode (which is how i intend to keep them) you turn it over, the wings just move so easily.

    any suggestions for tightening them down?

    My easiest suggestion is buy some Future Floor Finish (now "Pledge Floor Finish, with Future power" -- I wish I was kidding). after making 1 or 2 squirts on whatever passes for a palette, take your brush and "paint" the wing-posts. (I'm assuming your KOs are G1 style.) Then leave them alone and untouched for 24-25 hrs.

    The classics wings should also take an application of FFF inside of their still-attached joints. Then leave the coated area alone for 1 day to cure. Enough of the stuff and the friction of occasional transformation won't wear too much of it down. I first tried this with a custom made from a worn-out 1986 Bumblebee.
