    Just got mine from ebay. With shipping it was $21 which is a good deal as it is complete. It is rather loose though and the legs pull off real easy. When i bid for it the guy advised that it was loose out out of the box, which I believe as I have the titanium rodimus as well but I was Wondering if anyone else had the same issue with the legs and had any ideas besides taking a vice grip to it.

    Titanium War Within Prime is notorious for loose joints. Not much you can do - it's the die cast weight in the legs that causes the trouble.

    I have 2 of them. One is super floppy and the other one is kinda loose. I think its just a result of so much Die cast weight on the plasic ball joints.

    It's just not a well designed toy. Too much heavy metal on joints that are too weak to support it.

    Wonder if anyone's considered taking moulds and recasting in plastic?

    I have TFmaster's old WW Prime... and he's not really loose at all.

    I can't see any obvious alterations, so I'm assuming he probably just tightened up the joints with some nail polish or something. It's hard to say. But the point is, you CAN improve the figure, with a bit of ingenuity.

    I'd go for nail polish on the joints first and see if that tightens him up much.

    Love the toy, but floppy as hell. Glad I got one of those first release $5 target computer error version.

    I still couldn't make it feel worth $5. Or GI Joe Megs. Neither of those felt worth $5.

    I hear ya, I got both of them at the same time, but I didn't opened Megs until a few months just to make some room. Optimus yeah $5 was just barely worth it, but that megatron...100% turd.
