I just pick up the 2 pack of Cobra Commander and Tripwire. I love the figures and my CC's sword is perfectly straight but unfortunately the sheath is warped and bends to the side.
I don't want to risk mis-shaping the sword by putting it in the sheath so what should or could I do to solve the problem?

I got the new Joe 5-pack that has v2 Snake Eyes w/Timber. The right shoulder joint is loose, not loose enough that it cannot hold a pose, but significantly looser than the DVD pack version.
Any ideas on how to fix this?

Pop the torso, add some layers of clear nail polish to the shoulder hole on the torso until it's thick enough, then put it all pack together.
Drop some glue into the joint and keep moving it until the glue has dried so that it adds a layer in between the joint but doesn't glue the joint closed. (I have never tried this, but that's what I've heard others say to fix loose joints)

I got some figures off ebay. When i got them i noticed Torch's leg looked like it was glued. Then i noticed he had no little peg in his right leg. So now his foot just kinda sits in there, i've not bothered with displaying him.

I have a few 25th figures that have noticeable gaps where the 2 thigh pieces are supposed to fit together- especially up by the crotch where they connect to the figure. I've tried carefully closing the gaps with needle-nosed pliers, but it hasn't really worked. Any known fixes?

Another thing I've noticed with almost all of my 6 Joes is the lower knee joint is tight as hell. One of them doesn't have tight knees and it's so nice, I wish they were all the same.
Also, several of these figures from the comic 2packs are set into these extreme poses that have caused one of their lower legs to sort of warp and end up bent. It sounds like a fix for this would be putting the piece in some boiling water.
I had one stuck shoulder joint that would not move and I tried dipping it in hot water and it started moving right away.
