    [I'm aware I typed LOSS, i ment LOOSE no need to point it out please!]

    Gen. Lugnut right leg/hip has been loose since i got him.
    It's attached with some sort of bolt/rivet thingy. (What would that be called?)

    Is there anyway to tighen it up?

    Try coating it with clear nail polish or future floor finish.

    This^ shouldnt have to worry about the superglue potentially ruining the figure either.

    Superglue does work, but it does alter the plastic and can leave a nasty residue after it dries. This happens if you put on too much. I only use superglue for customs, since I can always sand it off and paint over it.

    1. You apply it via brush where all of the moving parts are.
    2. As with most things that are in a liquid state, yes.

    It does, I did this to fix ROTF Ldr. Prime's floppy arm panel and it worked. Be careful not to stain the rest of the figure though!

    It doesn't really stain, does it? I know Future turns yellow over time on white surfaces.

    Yes, then keep rotating it until it dries completely.
