    Just wondering if anyone could help me out on something. I recently bought a used titanium optimus prime and overall it is very loose. The arms in robot mode however are unbearably loose-- the shoulders don't stay in place and keep falling backwards. Any idea how to fix this? Am I mistransforming him? Thanks!

    You are not mistransforming him: heavy, metal arms+plastic joints= floppy Prime. The only thing I can think of to do as a remedy is to carefully pull the offending joints apart and apply clear nail polish to the little round blue nubs *AND LET IT DRY COMPLETLY*, and then re-assemble. I don't know if this will solve the problem, but it shouldn't make it worse, so give it a go. Hope this helps!

    On mine I often need to push the shoulders in toward the body to tighten up the grip of the parts. The joints are naturally weak because of the weight of the parts, but that also helps.
