Hey guys, this may sound like a very simple topic to some, but realize that there are many folks out there who are very nervous about modifying their toys. Thanks for all you do and share guys; it's greatly appreciated! 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. I have used nail polish all of the time on my TFs and it's somewhat effective. You just apply the nail polish to the joint and let it dry. Keep in mind that superglue actually melts the plastics it comes in contact with on a molecular level. This is great for adhering two plastics together, but personally, I'm just not cool with that while nail polish works just as well! Grendel, that's the stuff! Pledge bought the rights to produce Future floor polish. I've been using the same bottle for a little over 3 years now, and am starting to get just shy of half a bottle. It's been some of the best $5 I've spent. I was just working on a BT Ironhide custom tonight and some of the pins are loose. I'll be using some of the above methods to fix it, as well as the ball joints. When discussing super glue and tightening joints, someone else posted this link ; it looks like a good, basic overview: Tech Tips - Good to Know About Superglue It's always good to know what's happening with what you're doing I've used both super glue and Future floor polish and they each do pretty well. Super glue is, of course, a lot more permanent as it melts plastic on a molecular level to adhere to it. Again, I know this is a pretty basic topic, but I figured that it would be a great resource for someone looking to fix a figure as well as hoping it may get someone who would otherwise never consider altering their toys experience with chemicals and such. Also, I figured someone may have other resources they'd want to share Yeah, Future floor finish needs a good 8 hrs to fully cure. I'll often paint a coat of Future on something, then go to work (for an 8 hr shift). When I come home, anything I've used Future on is good to go. That link will be really helpful if I ever need to tighten a ball joint, but it doesn't really help in this situation. The reason I originally posted this was because I don't have the customing experience to know best how to fix these joints, or the income to afford a botched attempt. From the info you gave me, I have an idea of how to fix Brawl (I can live with Skydive's loosness). If I used a small flat-ended paintbrush to apply a thin layer of superglue/nailpolish/future finish (I have glue/polish but would need to hunt down FF. Is it worth it?) to this area of the peg: View attachment 27168413 Would this work? If not, what would? For that particular joint, you may be better off fixing both the joint and the item it hinges. Superglue or Future Floor polish would both work. Honestly, my experience with nail polish is that it doesn't last well. I may just need to inspect more kinds, but I still don't think it's the better solution of the the three (superglue, Future, nail polish). Also, with your quandary, just remember that Future is essentially clear, acrylic paint. Paint can be removed. Superglue bonds on a molecular level to the substance it's applied to. I hope that helps Just to answer your question on Future floor, it's not precisely the same as just a clear, gloss coat of say Testors clear coat. One of my favorite things about Future is that it is self-leveling, which alleviates brushstrokes a LOT. Also, it dries a lot harder than just other clear acrylic paint.
