    How would one stablize loose wings on various transformers planes, such as Overlord, Apeface, etc....The one I looking to stablize is the loose wings on my newely acquired Overlord plane wings. They have got those rods running through them. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    If you mean they are loose, then you can use future floor finish to tighten them. Or so I hear.

    Disassemble the arms. On the tab thats pressing onto the wings I put a small layer of superglue and let it dry, then it would just apply pressure enough to the wing to keep it in place.

    SureShot, that's a very good method, however it's good to keep in mind that superglue can make a piece of plastic very brittle. I did this same thing with my G1 Snapdragon the other day (front of the cockpit), and the piece ended up just continuing to break. Now, granted that one area is a source for a lot of weight, but I think my example is an extreme one just to stress a point (no pun intended).

    I think for this area, one would be fine though. I need to do this as well to my Overlord and some other figures. :)
