See, I bought DOTM Skids (Love it you haters) And it's right arm likes to detatch at the elbow. Stress marks are already forming, and I really just want the elbow to stay in one place, but able to move if need be. any way to tighten it?

My normal fix for loose ball joints is to pop the joint, apply a thin layer of superglue to the ball, let it dry completely (half hour to an hour), then reassemble. If you're getting stress marks though, I'm not sure that'd work. You might want to try warming the cup end with a hair dryer, then pushing the ends together slightly. I don't have that Skids though, so I don't really know what the elbow looks like.

I'd say do both at this point. Heating stress marked plastic supposedly corrects the problem (Full disclosure: I haven't tried yet), though I don't think you're going to be able to reshape that cup any.
