    The new one i got for Christmas has a floppy left wing and i was wondering if their's is a way to tighten his wings up so it doesn't brake off?

    Oddly the one I got back in July has the same issue, but on the right wing.

    i bought 2 generations TC and both have a loose wing.

    Probably mold degradation.

    My Gen Thundercracker I got in September is perfect. Guess I got lucky.

    Aww I see. Figures, Finally having all 6 seekers in hand (been waiting since 2007) and now he's got a floppy wing. Oh well.

    You are lucky. *sigh*

    Did the Botcon Action Master/Shattered Glass version have any flaws like floppy wings?

    Do you meen that they wiggle around at the second joint? If so, pop it of and put a dab of super glue on it and put it back in place and work it around until it's dry...

    What kind of superglue is needed and how much needs to be applied?

    In all honesty, I'd stay away from superglue on plastic figures. I'd suggest more like nail polish or future floor shine for tightening purposes, but that's just me. I've heard what superglue can do to plastic....

    My Thundercracker's wings are tight and solid. Oddly, the only Classic Seeker I have with a floppy wing is my Classics wave 1 Starscream.

    I use modeling cement, since it's meant for plastic anyway.

    That said though, it's not mold degredation since Hasbro and Takara have specifically avoided that from being an issue by using multiple dyes for the Classics Seeker mold.

    Anyway. I don't have the issue with my Thundercracker.

    Buying toys is luck of the draw. No figure is 100% perfect, it's all a sliding scale of imperfections.
