I doubt you want to risk it, but there's also the superglue method.
You place a drop of it on the joint and keep moving the joint around until it dries. Super glue is viscous enough to coat the joint evenly. The downside is...well, I think it's obvious what happens if you mess up the process. :D

Dooon't use superglue. Way too easy to screw it up, especially if you're using the instant-drying kind.

There's something called Pledge Future which is basically an acrylic varnish for floors and goes for like 3 dollars a bottle that will last you forever. Put on a layer of that on the socket/peg and let it dry for a day. If it's still too loose, try it again. If it's on an elbow joint or something, inject it into the joint with a syringe or dropper.

It also works as a killer acrylic sealer for any model kits or customs you might be working on that has self-leveling properties so it can just be brushed on.

An alternative method is a thin layer of school/white glue, but I've heard that just peels off of the joint too easily.

Yeah, no way I'm applying superglue or clear nail polish on any of my figures with loose joints. Besides, I was planning on getting the Full Arms Package versions of Strarf Mk2 and Arnval Tempesta Mk2 anyway, and the non-FAP versions will be used for spare parts.

Mandarake is a 100% legit operation. Hands down the most famous store of it's kind in the country and has been for over 20 years. All of my experiences with Mandarake have been in person.

So far I've been to the Akihabara, Nakano, Osaka, Shibuya, and Ikebukuro branches. Actually, I was just at the 8 story tall Akihabara store again last weekend. Good selection of Shinki for sale; All in their boxes and kept in a locked glass display case.

Of note, I've been in the back of the Nakano branch's warehouse before. Very clean, well organized, and the workers handled everything with care. One of the warehouse workers I spoke with put my Japanese to shame by speaking immaculate English. Nice guy too.

Well that's my insight on Mandarake.

cheers
