    Hello, there. I recently bought the movie soundwave toy, and was really looking forward to him. He was really cool, until I noticed his leg. Now, I'm a bit picky, but this really bothers me. When I bend his left knee, his knee falls off almost all of the time. It's extremely tight, too, but I can still bend it. Anyway, does anyone know a way to fix this, or should I return it to the store? Thanks in advance!

    I would say go and return it. It would just make the whole process a lot easier, instead of trying to take the leg apart to fix it.

    Mine has the same exact problem! I got him like a month ago though so I can't return it now.

    I think it might be a defect in the toy, because I have Soundwave too, and the leg does tend to fall off from time to time.

    Well it was at a collectibles shop and the two times I've been there the same guy was working at the register and he recognized me the second time. It's ok though, I can just use clear nail polish. If that doesn't work, I just won't transform him.

    If its the ball joint, clear nail polish or a tiny square of paper in the joint. If its anything else, take that bitch back! :)

    Mine had the same problem. A bit of nail polish on the peg did the trick.

    I don't like those peg joints...

    If the joint at his hip is tighter than the peg joint below it,then his leg will come off. Mine is alright, pretty even, so it's not as bad as some cases in other figures (looks at 2007 Voyager Megs).
