    I believe it has some thing to do with the pin that is in the neck. If I remember correctly it was covered in a podcast here at TFW and they said the problem was the pin was not pushed all the way through. And that this left it loose and floppy.

    So I think just take a hammer with a nail roughly the same size as the pin and hammer it lightly till it is threaded the rest of the way it was supposed to be. And in order to get to said pin you had to disassemble him anyway. Hope this helps.

    I have the same problem with mine but I have done anything about it yet. And I believe it was the podcast talking about the Target Price FUBAR fiasco.

    Which side of the pin do I have to hit?

    Hmmm I think it would be the side that looks as if it sticking out a bit. It should be flush even on both sides.

    If I had mine on hand I could be more accurate with this assumption. Sorry Sage.

    So, what is the problem? I'm getting Purple Shockwave soon. Is this problem in all the purple Shockwaves? Is it in normal Shockwave too?

    God, I feel a little bit like a nood right now. DX

    I hadn't realized this was across the board for the mold... interesting, I will have to try this fix. I wonder if the Canadian release will also have this problem
