    You can try Finger nail polish on the ball joint, let it dry for a few hours or apply it for you go to bed and in the morning it will be dry and snap the arm back on. This should create some friction for the ball and socket. Not sure how long it will stay tight though. Most loose joints on mine transformers, i apply a thin coat of nail polish each night and go from there. I hope this helps...

    Also, if this is not a ball joint, but a pin, you can try furniture polish to stiffen it up, but i have yet to try this method.

    Don't be afraid to pull Crosscut and Skids shoulders out the whole way... REALLY improves the look!
    I know most will suggest Future or Nail Polish... I use what I have laying around... When the one shoulder on my Skids became loose, I removed it from the socket and wrapped a small piece of electrical tape around the ball. Fixed. I've also used that method on loose/wobbly heads that are on ball joints (Universe Inferno and Generstions Sandstorm come to mind) and even hips (BH Megstron).

    So I got mine Crosscut today. The factory must be low on his wheels because my toy has a wheel off of Skids. Rear left wheel has the red rim that Skids' toy has. I was wonder if this has happened to anyone else?

    I want someone to repaint this mold as Optimus Prime. The head could work.

    I thought his head looked kinda similar to Star Saber's.

    I love Crosscut, if I ever come across a Skids for a decent price I'll definitely double dip on this mould which I almost never do. Only quibble I have with him is the red paint, whilst gorgeous, is incredibly sloppy, loads of overspray and blobbly. Apart from that he's tres cool.

    Must be bad QA...the red paint on mine is flawless.

    Fallout, my Skids had a loose shoulder joint so I know that's a problem with this mold. Sorry to hear that you had this happen. Good thing he's still a gorgeous toy!

    Oh, and by the way...I don't like Leader Jetfire's gun, but I just realized it makes a very nice BFG for Crosscut. :-D

    I saw Crosscut last weekend at TRU, love the colors on him and the head sculpt. Picked up Windblade and Jhaixus instead.
