    No, it's a common problem. Put clear nail polish in the holes in his arms and let it dry, they should fit fine then.

    if it helps you can just use superglue on the peg. but you have to wait for it to cure before you insert it in the hole if it's too tight sand it down until it's just right.

    Nothing to do with homosexuality (and I'm not sure why you'd think there's a connection there). It's called mold degradation. The Classics Seeker mold has been used so many times now that it's wearing down and the toys made from it are noticeably losing quality.

    the peg is not the problem on TC, mine's the same, the halves of the shoulders are spaced too far apart, if you put glue on the peg, it won't fit in the wing anymore (which it does quite well) i sanded the arm halves to make the hole smaller, but it took too long, so i just did one side and then nail polish on the other side

    You see this is another reason we need a new Voyager mold for the Universe Seekers :D 

    Plus then we all can get a Thundercracker, Thrust, and Dirge :)

    PC people chill for pete's sake.


    Its just a result of the mold being used upwards of 15 times now. And people STILL want more repaints.

    Agree in both responses. The word gay was used way before it was tagged to homosexuality or another way of saying stupid.

    Yea, mines the same way. I just set the launder in there and don't mess with it, as long as nothing bumps it then it stays in just fine.

    I agree with paying top dollar for a figure then having to "mod" it to get it to do what it's supposed to do in the first place, but whatta ya do? *shrug* Frustrating but I'll get over it, beats the hell out of paying the price they wanted for BotCon TC.
