    I picked up Universe Prowl around Xmas for $6.50 at KB Toys' closeout sale. I wasn't going to get Prowl originally but, for that cheap I couldn't pass him up.

    I just got around to opening him and I noticed then when in robot mode, with his head facing forward, it is so loose that it wiggles and jiggles around like a bobblehead doll.

    I twisted his head all the way around and when it is facing backwards it gets tighter like it should be.

    I thought that maybe there was a screw attaching the head to the body or a ball joint attaching it but, surprisingly it looks like there's a pin holding it on.

    Is there anything I can do to stop my prowl from being a bobblehead and tighten his head down the way it's supposed to be?

    THANKS for posting!!

    Nail polish seems to fix just about everything that is "loose" on TF's. Try that out.

    I had the same problem with my Silverstreak. Here's what you do. Just unscrew the head, put a drop of hot glue on top of the little metal thing, wait for it to dry, and put the head back on.

    Will the head unscrew by turning it counter-clockwise? Or how does it come off? I'm not sure how to remove the pin that's holding it on.

    I think he means the screw in the back of Prowl's head. You might also just try pushing the neck pin in.

    Yeah, this. But you're going to need a tiny screw driver.
