    I did some googling and didn't find anything specific. What I found tended to be for customs.

    I picked up a g1 bee and his arms hang down in car mode. I can tell the rivet holding the wheel on applies pressure to his arm and I assume mine has just worn down or gotten loose. Is there a joint repair tip/guide link anywhere out there?

    You might be able to run a little nail polish or something into the joint and then keep moving it until it sets.
    Failing that you could perhaps try heating the wheel rivet and pushing it in more to make the joint tight again. Might be something worth asking about in Radicons first.

    Of course I accept no responsibilty for any disasters that happen if trying that (the rivit repair, not the asking in Radicons :p  ).
