    i am repairing a g1 bombshell (obviously). Does anyone have any tips for tightening the knee joints and the head plate joint?

    Maybe nail polish to build up more surface area on the tabs and joints, but not much else really. I have taken apart mine before to try and fix it. If you are not too attached to that particular figure it is easier and cheap enough to get another one.

    What Mr. Ginrai said. I had the exact same problems with my G1 Bombshell; I also used the nail polish / dry superglue method to tighten up the joints. I think (not sure though) that his kneejoint is a screw which can be tightened. Anyhow, Bombshell is both easy to dismantle AND easy to replace.

    That's the easier solution. The reissues are really nice, and not all that expensive. And IIRC, those joints on Bombshell have been subtly remolded to make them more secure and less susceptible to wear.

    i was about to say... you can buy all three for pretty cheap, why bother repairing? you can buy the originals, for about 10 bucks each. less then that if you do not need the guns.

    Since you bought new ones, you should take the old one and articulate it.
