    yeah mine does that. i'd suggest trying the ol' superglue trick, but maybe just on the outer part of the joint so that it is bigger and holds the part in, like it should have in the first place. good luck :thumb

    Mine doesn't do that. In fact, it takes a substantial amount of pressure to separate the pieces. If it's a huge bother, I'd recommend exchanging him.

    Mine is fine sounds like a QC issue as already stated if its bad enough exchange it for a new one.

    Honestly.

    I only bought this toy to keep Misb forever.

    As I didn't like the over-all design in both modes from the start.

    I bought this toy because I use to read all those marvel G-1 Comics. Straxus was kinda cool in the USA & UK marvel comics.

    About the only thing I like about the generations straxus mold is he head sculpt,the picking ax & the rounded off body parts that look like the comic art designs.

    I'm not a fan of giving straxus a earth based tank mode. as he never got off cybertron in the marvel TF G-1 comics. straxus needed a cybertron alt mode. straxus also needed a bigger voyager sized toy. as he was clearly a high ranking bigger transformers.

    Sometimes mine will do the same, left leg same as yours. It pops right back in though, not like it's a break.

    Thanks for sharing? Don't really see how that contributes to helping the OP, but I guess you needed to get that off your chest or something.

    I'm sure Hasbro doesn't care if he opens it or not. Skullgrin was in the comics too, I hope everyone buys him as well.

    I have this same problem! I don't know how to fix it though. Wish I did, it's really annoying.

    Mine only has bad hips, in certain poses, I know the back pack is heavy, but it's the joints not the weight.

    I got him since I had the Bridge Too Far when I was younger, and he was crazy enough to weld a guy into a bridge, and he had a cool axe.

    Would the old super glue trick work you think or would something else be better
