Can anyone recommend any products to protect the paint on a figure? My Silverbolt's (Takara version) elbow paint is rubbing off where it rubs against the tab during transformation, and I want to make sure it doesn't get worse. It's yellow paint on black plastic, so it's noticeable.

Just got Generations Roadbuster, and the ratchet in his left shoulder is extremely loose. Anyone know how to fix it?

A dot of paint where you are going to be drilling on one side, then taking the other opposing part and pressing together to "stamp" the dot on the other side solves this problem easily :)

Hi All,

First time poster. I have a Generation 1 Repugnus figure that's missing the screw holding in his left arm. Any suggestions for replacements other than buying poor condition figure on eBay and stripping it for parts? I'd love to be able to find a replacement screw online or at hardware store.

Thanks!

You could always super glue his arm together; doing so usually doesn't impede movement.

If you want a screw, see if you have a less liked figure with a similarly sized screw, and canibalize it from them. Perhaps there's a hobby/model shop near you that might sell screws that small? I've never seen them sold anywhere.
