    Hey guys I was wondering, what do you guys use when fixing loose joints? I got a bunch of toys that have somewhat loose joints.

    Some people use super glue and some people use future floor finish.
    I think you pop the joint out and then put a little bit of the stuff mentioned above on it, then wait for it to dry, then pop it back in.

    I would wait for others to chime in though.

    Edit
    Woot 700th post :)

    i've been having this issue lately too, movie lockdown (arm) henkei red alert (foot) these are all toys i've opened in the last couple of weeks. to me that's weird because it was like bam bam, if it would have been a normal thing i would'nt have thought much of it.

    I think theres some qc issues mabee we should make a thread that lists the figures we run across w/ qc problems to see if its isolated or not.

    Well the figures I have been having issues with are all mostly new. Movie Lockdown (arms), Movie Brawn (legs), Drift (legs, tho this could be blamed on him having the car on the legs, making them more heavy than normal) and also War for Cybertron Prime.

    I use Clear nail polish. It works wonders on loose joints. Just pop them out and put a couple of coats on and pop back in. Fineto.

    I ruined ROTF Prime's boob by doing that. VISOR-LESS!

    Every other figures I've used superglue on work just fine.

    both pieces? i only used it on the ball usually, super glue i like better than nail polish as it has a rough finish when dried, and gives the joint more friction
