    Again, my RTS Lugnut has a screw just below the knee that won't stay in, and the right foot/ lower leg keeps popping off during posing and transformation. I tried screwing it in with a manual screwdriver, but no luck......would a electric screwdriver work or are there anyone on the boards with better repair skills ......PM me if anyone can fix, I may have to send him to get fixed since I can't afford another one right now

    I wouldn't recomend using an electric screwdriver on anything plastic. More than likely the screw/plastic is stripped. Pics would be helpful though

    This happened to my RTS Lugnut, the hole that the screw enters was completely stripped. I coated the screw in super glue and screwed it as far into the hole as possible. It has been perfectly solid ever since.
