25TH Ann./Modern Joe Loose Joints Fix!

When receiving an older,vintage Joe in the mail it is very possible for the figure to arrive with loose joints,waist,legs etc.And that’s pretty much expected from a vintage figure that in most cases is well over 15 years old. But what do you do when your brand spanking new,MOC  25th Ann./modern G.I. Joe figure comes with loose leg joints?After doing some digging on the internet,i stumbled across an awesome way to solve this problem!Three figures in my collection suffer from “loose leg joint syndrome”- My recently acquired Cobra Commander,POC Duke and ROC Storm Shadow.I’ve already repaired them and have decided to share the knowledge with my fellow toy blogging community.

Step 1-  You’ll need a small Phillips head screwdriver and some Loctite Super Glue.

Step 2- You’ll want to remove the screw from the inner leg area of figure and keep them nearby and ready for reattaching.

Step 3- Gently dab a little Loctite Super Glue on the ball joint,not too much but enough.You don’t have to wait or anything,just reattach the leg with screw.
