    So my Grimlock arrived last night and I noticed how loose most, if not all, of the hing joints are crazy loose except for his elbows. Why is this? Is it poor quality or just the weight of the diecast and plastic? Anybody else experiencing this? Is it just the TRU re-reissue?

    Tip for the hip joint for floppy legs:

    Tighten the two screws on his butt, and you're all set.

    *Reads title*

    Oh Grimmy...you dirty dirty dino. Why you gotta be all loose?

    Oh behave!

    But just the tip.

    *drumroll* I'll be here all night folks!

    Seriously, you're not the first person to report this issue, but at least there's a solution.

    Thanks for the advice guys! Tightening those screws helped him stand better for sure. And since I'm just getting home, I'll take a look at that thread. Thanks, tik :) 

    And I can't believe how suggestive this thread turned out to be :lol
