    Howdy,

    So I decided to buy a few of the figures from the DC Superheroes line, which has been tempting me the last little while. All of them are great, except for Bizarro. This is mostly because Bizarro's legs are flyin' everywhere. His legs are so loose he sometimes can't even stand up!

    Now, I'm pretty sure I've seen little mentions here before on how to tighten joints, involving nail polish remover or something. I've already browsed a few pages back on the forum for the topic , but couldn't find mention, and I've already scoured Google to no avail.

    So, could someone help me out?

    Put a small bit of superglue into the joint and keep moving the joint while it dries.

    That clear nail polish trick works, but noticed through experience that the super glue works wayyyy better.
    Just gotta keep hitting that joint with turns.
