I've heard of winding plumbers tape or cotton into the ball joints, though I've not tried it myself.

BP? your best bet is winding plumbers tape into the top of his arm joints where they join the body Very Happy You can repeat this process for the legs by winding in the plumbers tape between the top of the hip and his blue pants, nt to much though otherwise you will restrict his movement. Hope it helps cheers

His wrists and elbow joints are loose too. Would I need to wind it around those too ??

wrists are probably loose due to his grippers being worn, you could try the tape method, but not sure it would work? It might work for his elbows tho?, never tried that one before?

So...for my first mini project in my new workshop I'm going to finally try to tighten this fellas joints.
I'm going to try the plumber tape for the limbs,  but has anyone restrung the waist joint on one of these ? It looks fairly easy...but any tips would be great.

I have done a couple using bungee cord from the legs, up through the torso and tied off through the neck post. I works pretty well too

Thanks dal...I will give it a go.

The plumbers tape worked a treat for the shoulders and elbows....and tightening the elbows seems to have tightened up the wrists a bit too.

I've used dental floss on a could of MAM, but I don't have any of the muscle bodies to test that on. I think the plumber's tape might do a better job though, as the floss is thicker so once you tie a knot to stop it moving the knot might force the joint further open. A knot on plumber's tape would me much smaller, I think.

That's a very tidy looking job there Chris. Seems to have done the trick.
