Action Pose – PRID Optimus vs PRID Megatron

Click the picture for the full version!

For those of you that don’t quite get it, it’s a common issue for Prime RID voyager Megatron to have a loose right arm at the shoulder balljoint. It doesn’t make the arm fall off, but it makes it very floppy with the cannon attached.

Future floor polish is used to tighten loose balljoints.

  1. Really doesn’t help that the right arm by default ends up having to hold up the big, heavy accessory. I haven’t had an issue yet with it…but then, I haven’t moved the arm much at all.

  2. Mine could hold up its arm fine, but once you put the cannon on it the whole arm went floppy.

    It wouldn’t fall off, at least.

  3. Maybe he just dislocated his arm on account of fusion cannon recoil? That’s what it looks like in that photo. :)

    I hope everyone likes the text boxes on this one. I like them, and I’m planning on doing them more often for pictures.

  5. It amuses me that Optimus seems to actually want to be shot at by Megatron’s cannon, yet Megatron is too proud to let his arch-nemesis help him shoot him.

  6. I just bought my 2nd PRID Megatron… I didn’t realize this was a common problem. I hope floor polish actually fixes it, because I used nail polish on the last one and the arm split and then didn’t stay on at all.

  7. It’s kind of a mixed bag, John. I’ve heard people say things from “It didn’t work on mine.” to “It took a couple applications but now it’s fine.”

    Mine was good after one coat, but I also let it sit for about a day.

    If you’re not familiar with it, it’s supposed to be better than super glue or nail polish. I haven’t really used the nail polish method, but I know super glue can be a pain because you have to take the joint apart, and sometimes it makes ‘squeaky’ joints.

    Floor polish with ‘future shine’ is much easier though. You just dab it on a q-tip or a brush, then dab a drop in the joint and work it around. Wait a few hours and it should be good. You don’t even have to take the joint apart.

    Hope that helps!

  8. I try to let the treated joint sit for a day, move it a little, then leave it alone again for maybe another day to make sure it fully works.
