    Recently I bought a KO MP36 off of ebay for a good price. I got the THF Dynastron, and the figure looks exactly like the Official Product. I mostly got the KO for the price and the fact that normal MP36 is practically sold out everywhere. I realize I got what I paid for, but some of the joints are too loose. Particuarly the one on the elbow, it flops around and cant hold a lot of poses with the fusion canon on. Is there any way to fix this? The ratchets are plastic but they hold nice however the chest plate assembly rotates too easily. I am not trying to complain because, again, I got what I paid for. But I do want to try to fix the joints so I can get some more poses in.

    You need to thicken the joints up. The normal stuff people use are Futures Floor Polish or nail polish. Also crazy glue but that’s a last resort. Drip the liquid into the joints or pin and work it around until it hardens up. Good luck.

    I see, well is there a tutorial on how to disassemble the joints? I got the arms unscrewed off but after that I couldn't see a screw to disconnect the forearm from the top, and I don't wanna break it.

    Don’t have THF Dynastron so couldn’t tell you. What I did tell you is the generic fix that most of us use for loose joints on any of our TF toys. Also used by model builders to stiffen joints too.

    My THF doesn't have this issue, but if someone assembled it you can disassemble it. Look for a pin holding it together. I use nail polish for tightening joints. Just remember to let it cure for 24 hours before you reassemble.

    There is a thread on here someplace called "what's in the box" where they disassemble MP figures for parts counts. MP 36 is one of the figures done. You might check that thread for help with the arm assembly.
