    I have opened my Unite warriors Baldigus set. When I was transforming Movor, his neck assembly flys off. How do I fix it? It sucks that 1 out of 5 figures have a QC issue. :(

    One thing I did was sand down those weird bits on the combiner joint. Pops off far less

    My UW Bruticus has the same issue with Blast Off. I was going to sand things down a little, but I don't transformation him very often.

    I had the same issue with the UW Bruticus. I ended up putting the set into storage until I got the DW upgrade kit. I took it out of storage, roughly one year later, and the neck was fine. It was like nothing was ever wrong. I still swapped in the new Blast-Off, but it was so odd.

    not to be that guy, but this really should be in creative general discussion, since this isn't a post about a custom

    Hard to get down to the base and then use soft to smooth it out
