I glue everything.
Webgear and "hitler youth knifes" are glued in place on every cobra soldier I own. Goggles are glued on to every viper and para-viper.
Almost all of my cobra commander's helmets are glued on. As well as every 2nd or 3rd cobra soldier and officer.
I'll sometimes leave 1 or 2 figures un-violated just for the sake of having the ability to pull everything off still. For shits and giggles.
A hot glue gun works "ok" if you don't want to damage the plastic, but it sometimes comes undone. But you are able to at least peel it all off and return the figure to it's pristine fresh out of the box condition.

It takes up enough space in there to tighten them up but still allows movement.
Works on knees too, but you may have to clean up any excess after it cools. Just pick it off with your fingernail, or oh-so-carefully with an exacto knife.

I like to use a small piece of that blue "ticky Tack" puddy you can get in the office supplys aisle. I put a amll piece of it under any helmets that are loose and it seems to work just fine.
I can still remove the helmet if I want to and it doesn't leave any discoloration behind.
I have used it for about 2 years now +/- and it seems to do the trick for helmets.
I haven't done anything for guns though. I usualy don't display my figures with weapons in their hands for long periods of time though.
I suppose super glue would work fine for guns...

1. Comic Pack October Guard Figures.
2. 1987 Cobra Maggot
3. Cobra Adder
4. Cobra Imp
5. Cobra Bunker parts or complete
6. Cobra Rifle Range parts or complete
