    Has anyone figured out a way to keep these spring loaded chest pieces in place? Even the slightest bump knocks them right back into the grill area. I apologize if someone has already posted this. I didn't see a thread.

    Thanks,
    Jeremy

    I don't understand why so many people have an issue with them - mine work perfectly. I pull them out as far as I can and then I twist them up until they click.

    They're solid as a rock. I can shake him around, tap on them - they have never popped back on their own.

    tighten the screws in the back of the chest plates. Megamoonman yours must have already been tightened because on the loose ones it doesn't click into place.

    A Hasbro toy factory assembled something correctly? I call BS.

    I have two. The first one I found works great. The second one I found two months later has the "loose breast issue". I took it all apart and the only thing I could see different was that the clicking part on the loose chest was not as pronounced. It looks like there may have been a mold issue a little later on?

    I am going to have to check out my screws in the back. The chest pieces snap back quite easily.

    I bought one from the States and one from Canada back when they came out and both have trigger happy chests.

    I tried tightening the screws for the chest in mine last night, and the screws are in as tight as I could get them. Didn't change a thing. Good thing I leave him on display and don't have to mess with his chest much anyways.

    WOOT!!! 2000th post.

    Is this "twist the chest pieces until they click" a running change? My, along with a lot of friend's 'Bees, have the hair-trigger chests. I just tightened mine's screws and turned his chest pieces as hard as I could without breaking them, and nothing changed/happened.
