Is there any way to try to help keep the arm on better like Zam Wessel's on the Anakin HG? I scratched the paint off the the part of the arm that comes off...... It still really doesn't stay on!!!! When ever he is figting Count Dooku his arm comes off!!!!! AHH!!!
I don't want to glue it or do anything permanent to it though....
Thanks in advanced and Happy Hunting!!!!!! :)

I don't have a problem with my Anakin's arm coming off. I think some of the figures might have stronger magnets than others.

Mine falls off whenever I move him. Piece of junk!!!!! Also his lightsbaer keep falling out from the hilt. :rolleyes:

Mine sucks too.
But I just leave it on and don't move it.

The best thing I figured out for the lightsaber is to burn a candle, when you get some wax melted just dip the tip of the saber in and get a little wax on it. It holds in there real good.

I used rubber cement, jobi. Works great!

I liked the wax because I can still take it out. It just makes a better fit. But rubber cement would be a good permanent solution.

The magent in my anakin's hand is strong as all hell but the arm magnet sucks. It only stays on well if its on the side (kinda of hard to describe). I may just glue the arm in one spot. I'm going to buy the new one anyway.

I bought two hanger duel anakin's- one falls off constantly, the other stays on snuggly

If you wanna make the arm stay on and still use magnets, just remove the magnet from the stump and use the other end. It's a lot stronger, and the severed arm stays on better.

How do you get the magnet off?
Thanks to all who posted!!!!! :)

I just took a knfe with a small blade and stuck it in along the side and dug it in far enough to slide it under the magnet. Then all you do is pop it out, and if it's a metal blade, the magnet will stick to it. You might wanna mark the original end first, though, so you don't end up using the wrong side and have to repeat the process.
