    Joints are hard to fix. Do you have a pic? That might help. As far as the paint on Ejector, I think that is a common problem. I ended up pretending it was a beat up toaster.

    My Ejector has the same problems. The thing about the paint is, all the parts of ejector rubbing together are making it come off. When I got him, I thought he may have been better without the paint.

    I slapped a good spray of clear coat on my Ejector while in toaster mode and he's been fine. The shoulder balls have a tendency to pop out when going over the corner of the chest panels during transforming. You can ease that strain a little by filing or sanding down the corners a slightly. Loose ball joints can usually be fixed with the nail polish trick.
    As for standing up, just fiddle with the arrangement of his leg joints as he can be tricky to balance right since his false 'heels' are slightly higher than his feet.
