    Is there a way to fix hair trigger missiles that go off EXTREMELY easily? HFTD Tomahawk has been getting on my nerves for a loooong time.

    Or glue them in. Or glue little plastic shavings to the clip of the firing mechanism.

    Replace the spring with a lower tension or cut the ones in there. I replaced my G1 Hounds with a longernsuper tense one for optimal shooting power.

    I'm not really sure what's wrong with them, it's just that if you even look at it the wrong way, they fire. I mean that literally. Sometimes when I have him posed, they just shoot out for no apparent reason.

    I don't care much for firing missiles, and if they look silly (Anim. Blitzwing and Starscream) I don't even keep them on the figure. Tomahawk however looks very cool with his missiles on, so if you like the look but don't want to fire them you could remove the springs I guess. Mine don't fire on their own fortunately, but the trigger is pretty sensitive (not on the level of Uni. Galvatron however, that figure is an asshole)

    Yeah, but a lot of them look pretty silly w/o the missiles. I also have a pet peeve about leaving pieces off a figure. It feels somewhat incomplete and I would probably end up losing them.

    Stick some paper or cloth in the hole to keep the missile from moving.

    Just remember to leave some excess that can be grabbed with tweezers or fingers to remove it.

    Put them in the figures hands and make it look like they're reloading

    My first Classic Starscream had that same problem,the first and every other time since he just went crazy firing those missiles of his,especially the right arm one.So finally I said the hell with it and glued them suckers in there,those missiles ain't coming out no more.I could just look at him and he would shoot them,I think he was the worst figure in my collection about doing that honestly.

    Does anyone else have the same problem with there Classic Starscream?.

    Would a little clearcloat in the groove on the missile make it a bit less prone to firing unexpectedly?
