    I have a Universe Deluxe Starscream, and his hip pin joint and left wrist pint joint seem to be loose, does anyone know a way to restore the tightness to the joints?

    I've heard of some technique with nail polish but I haven't tried it for myself.

    pin joints are a bit trickier, you can use liquid crazy glue for them, and keep moving the part for a few minutes until the glue is completely dry and cannot stick the parts together

    I would probably bang the pin out and apply a coat of something (nail polish, crazy glue, etc.) to it and bang it back in once it dries.

    I'm gonna try something like this, as my ROTF Sideswipe's elbow constantly flings about; it has lost all tightness whatsoever.

    My own Sideswipe never had any tightness in his right elbow. However those pins are impossible to push out! How do you guys do it?
