Generations Kup loose head

I have a problem. The head on my Generation Kups keep coming loose. I say Kups because it's happened to 2 of these figures. Anyone else experiencing this with Kup or Swerve.

By "loose" do you mean "popping off"?
Maybe try tightening the screw at the back of the head and/or apply a thin coat of crazy-glue or clear nail polish to the ball joint.

Also, Gen Kup's original head suck mighty balls. Get the I-Gear upgrade kit.

Ah, that problem again.

Generation Kup's head is on a panel that relies on friction alone to stay up. Thing is, occasionally hinges can come out already loose out of the packaging. Sucks, but I have no real solution for that. :-(

I think it's an extremely common issue. My Kup, like many, came with the head loose in package, and once in a while has had to be popped back on. I don't think you've got defective Kups, more it's just a design flaw.
