    There are a few questions that I have on repairing some G1 figures. Would this be the right forum to post?

    ok, here we go

    1. Sideswipe. His right foot falls forward exposing a huge cavity in the toy. When trying to stand him up, the foot falls into the body making it hard to stand up.

    2. Hound. His ankle joints..where the rear wheels are. VERY loose. There is a huge screw on the inside but i cannot get to it.

    I am trying to learn as many restoration tricks as possible. That being said:

    1. sounds like the stopper on the foot is broken off. get a junker sideswipe and steal the broken part, it's not a common breakage, so one with missing clear plastic should have that intact, quick parts swap will fix you up

    2. don't have hound at the moment, but i know where you're talking about, maybe disassemble the legs so you can get at that screw, if it's not loose, maybe try the polish/superglue trick on the ankle joints when you're inside
