Can anyone suggest a solution? I recently acquired the Sentinel from the Marvel Legends BAF line and the right arm and left leg keep falling off. The other limbs are rather secure in their sockets, but these two fall out if you breathe on it wrong. You can't manipulate it at all without the limbs sliding off.

I don't know if its the lower torso extension that inserts into the left leg or the hole it goes into, the same with the right arm with has the insert. Seems new enough at glance so I don't see any obvious wearing down on the small piece that is supposed to keep them from coming off. These parts were supposed to be new from the individual legends packages, but now I'm not so sure, unless this is very common in this line.

Anyone seen this in this particular BAF and have any ideas or suggestions? I'd rather not get new pieces, and not exactly sure where the issue is even to get the right ones if that was the way to go, but perhaps there's some way to keep them in. I was able to fix awhile back my son's AT-TE with some supplies from home depot for example lol, but I think this isn't going to be that simple.

Thanks for any constructive suggestions!!

Sorry to hear that.

All I can tell you is that my Sentinal and my buddy's three Sentinals have not exhibited that problem, so it's probably not inherent to the design.

Mine is still fine after all of these years. The only problem with Marvel legends BAF's I've had is the colors on Galactus fading to white.

I haven't had an issues with my Sentinel either, so I'm not sure what to tell you.

Do the pegs or sockets look damaged? My Sentinels are secure and rock solid in the joints, so if there's no visible damage, it sounds like maybe you just haven't attached them correctly. Try pushing them into the sockets harder to lock them in place.
