Hey Big Bro......

cut out a small piece from a Battery pack cardstock and wedge it in the joint...
that way you can still have mobility and have strong and firm joints.....

@Yautja1203,, my problem is simply, their joints are a bit loose so whenever i stand them , they fall, i made stands where a 1/4 inch rod sticks up but i find them leaning either forward or backwards... ... i check on internet too and they recomend using clear nail polish on joints to stiff them up a bit.... i probably try it... thanks guys !!!

You could also use a small amount of super glue to tighten the joint. Just make sure not to glue the joint together. It's tricky but can be done.

Yeah super glue works! Just dettach the joint with hot water or a hair dryer, put a blob of glue on the joint and reattach it together...move the joint around untill it goes stiff. Works everytime but be careful!
