    So I picked up the plastic toynami voltron only to be disappointed that the red lions head is loose. He literally cannot hold up the sword its so loose.

    Does anyone know how to fix this without having to open the lion? Because from the looks of it toynami opted to just glue the set together instead of using screws. So physically opening the lion is a no go.

    I had that issue with my Masterpiece Voltron. I wrapped a clear rubber band in the joint, and it tightened up nicely.

    Ok I just discovered they DID use screws on this. Basically you remove the screw caps on the underside of the head "same way as TFC hercules heavylabor", and remove the screws.

    The biggest culprit here is a stripped screw that wasnt tightened. So it needs to be replaced, any idea where one can get another?

    Bring the screw to your local hardware store, they should be able to find you a match

    Humm... what would probably be the best hardware store to try?

    Aces, Home Depot, Walmart, or Radioshack?

    I'd think Aces and Home Depot might be the best one, but Radio Shack might deal with smaller screws...
