    Just picked him up today. His front left leg seems a bit loose, almost floppy at the joint connecting to upper bicep. It doesnt move too much though since the large bicep restricts how far it can bend. It is at the top of the light blue piece that allows the forearm to bend at the elbow btw. Is this normal?

    BTW: It's CYBERTRON Snarl I'm asking about!

    Just so we're clear, we are talking about Cybertron Snarl right? Thanks.

    Yep, Hence, the inclusion of CYB in parantheses, but it did confuse me for a second too. I think I better go check my Snarl.

    My Snarl has a limp wrist. :( 


    Makes it impossible to pose with his sword in the air.


    What is the "clear nail polish trick"?

    Yeah, mine has that problem too. It seems to be an issue inherent to the mold, as Dark Fang Wolf's wrist is a bit loose too (not as bad as C-Snarl, though).

    As far as the front legs in beast mode, the ones on my copy of the figure could stand to be a little tighter, but they aren't loose or floppy.

    Now that you mention it......

    It's a bit loose on mine too.

    The right leg isn't a lot better either.
