    Hello guys, I got a problematic DOTM Shockwave on me, where the right arm simply won't stay in its bicep joint after a few twists. If left untouched, it's fine, but any attempt to pose it will push the plug out of the socket.

    I think I need to add something at the opening of the socket to hold the plug in place, but I'm not sure how to do that. I've tried a few coats of Future Floor Polish and Nail polish to no avail.

    It's not a deal breaker for the toy, but I was wondering if there was a way to fix it. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated, and thank you!

    (with pliers) put the arm back into place and gently squeeze the opening where it slides in till the arm holds a position without un-posing, i did this to mine it worked amazingly ^_^
