    I picked up ROTF Soundwave a few days ago, and just now noticed that his right arm does not move. The ball and socket joint where his arm meets his shoulder is so tight that his arm does budge at all. Is anyone else having this problem??




    btw... this is my very first post even though I joined quite awhile ago....

    It's either pain/glue dried on the inside of the balljoint fusing it in a stuck position (This happens all the time on DCUC figs), or the ball really is too big for the socket or its a tight fit. First thing I would try is making it budge with just force. If that doesn't work try heating up the joint as that would loosen any paint/glue on the inside of the joint.

    Hope this helps.

    Aaaahhh.... too late, broke it. I was seeing if it would loosen up if I forced it. Not a good idea.... But, thanks for the advice anyway.

    Man, I really hate having to buy the same figure twice. Damn QC!
