    A Fix for Loose Thighs?

    Having a real problem with my Blue Hordak standing. His thigh joints are so loose, he can hardly stand. Is there any way to repair this?

    I've heard people have dabbed a tiny bit of super glue in the joint but I'm not sure. But yes I've noticed with a lot of the dcuc and motuc over time thighs and shoulders getting loose

    With the title of the thread I thought, for a moment, that this belonged in The Tar Swamp, where I could certainly provide the solution.

    Please try this first. Excess wipes off easily with water. You can use a brush to apply, then let the figure sit overnight. You may need to reapply over time if your figure gets a lot of use.

    Small, clear rubber bands like the ones that hold the figures in the package can be used as well by wrapping around the loose joint and pushing into to a joint so it's not visible. This is a bit more difficult to do, but is pretty permanent and non-destructive. This works best for hips or shoulders, may not work well on a thigh unless you boil and pop the joint, then wrap the post.

    I don't personally recommend super-glue, the margin for error is too high and the excess dries with a rough texture and a white color.

    As I said, Tar Swamp material.
