    For those of you who have him, does your Universe Inferno have a loose head? Just wondering...I did a search but couldn't find anything about it.

    Mine sorta kinda does. The neck joint itself is fine, but the rivet that attaches the neck 'shaft' to the body is a little loose and wobbly, for a slight bobble-head effect.

    My Inferno had the bobblehead problem as well. I removed the head and squeezed a bit with a pair of pliers. This didn't quite do the trick thanks to the rim of plastic around the base of the rivet, so I wadded up a bit of the twist tie that had held him in his box so I could apply direct pressure to the rivet itself. With the twist tie in place, I gave it a squeeze with the pliers again until the neck piece didn't wobble around anymore. I popped the head back on, and it's been perfectly secure ever since. There's a few gouges in the top of the ball joint from the pliers, but since they're on the inside of the head, I don't really care.

    Mine had the same problem. I just put some superglue around the silver peg that holds it on and jiggled the black ball portion so the glue would get down inside. Then I let it set overnight and it tight now and you can't even tell there is any superglue in place. I just didn't like the bobble head effect.

    No wobble on my Inferno's head. Must be a luck-of-the-draw thing.

    Loose? Yes, a bit. Wobbly, bouncy and won't stay pointing the direction I turn it? Nopers.

    Same here. I'd hardly call it loose though, it's hardly worse than any other ball-jointed head on my shelf.

    But I feel compelled to point out that we have Feedback threads for discussion like this. And there has been this exact discussion going on over there. I think it was ShadowStitch that posted a possible solution too.
