    My Old MetroPlex has seen better days.. It it is still in decent shape but some of the joints have gotten pretty loose, especially the Helipad section when in robot mode..

    But my question is this.. The head will not stay up I guess it has lost a spring or something, I don't know how. But does anyone know how to get it working right again?

    The spring you need is about 1 5/8 inches long and needs to fit into the head where the screw is. My suggestion would be to run down to your local hardware store with the head and see if they have any springs that will fit in that tube and is about that length.

    THANKS! Funny thing is, I don't know how the original spring went missing.. I have never taken it apart previously.

    I've got a junker metroplex if you're interested in it. the only major thing wrong with it is that it is broken at the swivel joint at the waist. It only has 1 fist and no accessories, but the head is in excellent shape, beautiful chrome and such.

    How much? What I'm basically going to do with mine, it fix it all back up like new again and then re-sell it. I'm going to sell off most of my Transformers. I have like a whole box full.
