    I was playing with my Shockwave a little today (1 year old son likes the lights and sounds)...

    Anyways, I noticed that where the hose meets the body is started to crackle a little bit. Just a little bit, but it's starting.

    Anyway to prevent this or slow it down, or...?

    I usually have him in robot form and his gun arm reversed so that the hose is on the lower part of the arm instead of the normal on-top-of-the-arm. I had him like this because transforming him "properly", stretches the hose a little bit and puts it a little tight.

    Any suggestions?

    Yeah, there is no way to repair the hose...that's why getting a good condition G1 Shockwave was such a pain in the neck for me. I had to search for quite awhile to get him and I paid close to US$150 for him. The irony is I don't dare transform him as often as I would like to. Bummer.

    Just go to a hardware store and find some good quality rubber tubing.

    I took out the Shockwave only twice to display and now it's staying inside the box for good. I have no intention of damaging it and would rather keep it boxed because I'd hate to see any cracks appearing on the toy.
