the joint tightness can be

the joint tightness can be increased by using superglue or clear nail polish on the pegs in the joints. dont misunderstand, i dont mean to say that you glue it up and slap it together, i mean you apply some glue to the peg, let it dry, and then the increased size of the peg will increase the friction in the hole. i do this all the time to improve the ball joints of my transformers and it works like a charm!

thanks for the review, these Kotobukiya kits are really brilliant, the lines are so sharp and the colors bold and bright! i also like how the final model only requires only a touch of paint to look perfect. the design choices and design references made through the SRW lineup reads almost like a top ten list of things that make a robot appealing. Too bad ive already pigeon-holed myself as a transformers guy or i would get back into model building again!

I just picked this puppy up

I'm planning to assemble, detail, and clear coat it with matte finish. Wish me luck.
