    When you mentioned it the previous time I looked at mine and I didn't think my crotch piece was modified, but maybe they just did a stellar job on mine and I can't tell?

    Sorry you've had such bad luck with this figure! I tightened up my loose knees and wrist joints on mine and other than those issues he seems perfect to me. I used that Kiki joint fixer stuff instead of my usual Pledge and it seems to work pretty well. Possibly better than floor polish but I'm not sure yet.

    @Jarrod recommended it and he was saying he finds that it works better. I've only used it once so far, but it does seem to be better as far as I can tell. It comes out of the bottle milky white and kind of freaked me out because you can really see it, but it dries clear. The instructions say that you need to rotate the joint you are fixing while it is drying to avoid it being permanently stuck. They even say that if you leave it for 48 hours without rotating at all you will need a heat gun to free up the joint. But it appears to work very similar to the floor polish. I'm only rotating 2 or 3 times over 24 hours and it seems fine. You probably shouldn't forget to rotate, just in case.

    The knees really aren't too bad once you get used to them, I will have to use some floor polish and see how much better I can make them. And here is a nice shot of the two cool cats!

    Tigatron finally arrived! After awaiting my delivery from TFS Express (China), they shipped it from their UK stock to avoid further delays it seems! Very happy with him. Tiger eyes are loose as hell, his front paws aren't as flush as I would have liked, and knees are a little wobbly, but I love him, and he makes my heart melt when displayed with the rest of the crew!

    So who's next?

    MAN these figures look great. Cheetor and Tigatron are especially exciting.

    Just received Tigatron from Amazon JP that I ordered a couple of days ago (we are in Wisconsin)...wow they ship here fast! We're pretty busy, so it'll be a bit before I can really play around with him though. We also just moved to a house, so I'm still researching how I want to display everyone.

    I used that Kiki joint fixer on the knees and wrists. Mine is much better now so I'm sure floor polish will help.

    The knees can kind of be fixed by bending the main knee joint further back so the figure balances properly so floor polish may not be necessary.

    I didnt realize Tigatron was so much larger than cheetor in bot mode. Is it like that in the show?
