    So I bought another Henkei Hot Rod awhile back just to have as a stand alone Hot Rod figure, well he's got a problem, which is the screw behind the wheel that connects to the ball joint is loose and his arm swings like no tomorrow. I can't get behind the wheel to tighten the screw, how would I go about fixing this?

    id just add some glue around the ball joint post where it meets the arm just to keep it from spinning

    That's a pin, not a screw. And it isn't the issue.

    Pop the ball joint out of the socket and give the socket (THE SOCKET, NOT THE BALL) a thin coat of super glue or modeler's cement. Let it dry, and then pop the ball joint back in.

    I've had 3 now without any issue whatsoever. Classics, Henkei, and RTS.

    I personally think the Hot Rod mold needs to be revisited again by Hasbro. The legs and feet don't bother me at all, it's the arms that kill this mold.
