    So I have always wondered this but have never known the answer. Does leaving the transformer in bot mode make the joints looser than leaving them in alt mode. I know I seem like an idiot for the question but when the transformer is in alt mode he (or she) seems more tight and secure. Anyways just wonderin...

    just leaving it in one mode or the other doesn't really do anything to the joints unless the figure has a massive gun that will eventually weight down an arm, multiple transformations and playing are the real culprit on joint wear.

    Play is the culprit.
    display is your friend.

    and thanks to modern chemistry (nail polish, super glue, tape, paper, etc) you can still remedy a loose figure enough to last another 20 years.

    now if you pose a figure holding up Unicron in planet mode, you may have joint issues.
