Marvel Legends Haslab Sentinel Loose Knee Joints And The Fix

Marvel Legends Haslab Sentinel Loose Knee Joints And The Fix


Jay Cochran - September 12, 2021
Some people who have received their Haslab Marvel Legends Sentinel have reported having loose knees on the figure right out of the box. This only seem to be a problem for some folks but Robo has posted a video with what appears to be a fairly fix to the problem.



There is a grey circle piece on the out knees (elbows as well) that can be popped off that reveals a screw. If you tighten the screw, that seems to fix the problem at least temporarily. It's not clear if the screw will remain tight if you move the figure around a lot, and yes one could argue it's ridiculous to have such a problem with a $350 figure right out of the box, but never-the-less hopefully this will do the job and is fairly simple to do.

I can't wait to get mine....Ill only be displaying him as Master mold and will hold out hope we get a rerelease of the smaller SENTINEL at some point or a new BYRNE era SENTINEL.

I'd probably do the same if Hasbro went that route. Would love an army of smaller sentinels around Master Mold in my display. If I had the money I would have bought more of the Haslab Sentinel. I also would have backed the Haslab Galactus and bought two. One to be Galactus, the second to see if the Master Mold head would fit on the Galactus body and see if that worked for my dream Sentinel display.

Spectacular set of action pics! Makes me almost wish I had backed the sentinel last year... almost. I'll save my money for all the figures coming out yet this year and next.

Hit him in the knee! He's weak there already! Just like Justin Hammer, Trask can't manufacture quality for sh1v!! LOL

You're not following the same logic here. What I'm saying is, and this applies to most products, if you're going to sit there and screw around with it until it starts to loosen up, don't be surprised. How many people here do you think actually *play* with these figures versus how many pose them once or twice and then they stay on a shelf for months or years? No one is saying you shouldn't be able to pose them. But if someone is sitting there on cam for 20 mins flexing the wrist back and forth, over and over again and then it finally looses some of it's rigidity--congratulations, you just broke your figure. It didn't "come loose", you made it that way.

I just want to make sure that distinction is clear. A lot of people will say "My figure was loose right out of the box" but neglect to mention that they spent two days creating dioramas with it and that their kid happened to play with it for a few hours. There is no Marvel Legend that, upon repeated flexing and posing, will continue to stay rigid and perfectly posable forever.

While obviously not including any haslab, marvel legends in general should be able to hold up to play because they are aimed at kids for play. Just ask them? I have and they continue to say kids make up 80% of their products purchased . That includes adults buying for kids. So it doesnt make sense that they shouldnt be designed with play in mind.

During the Fan First Monday video, a few people noticed Dwight's Sentinel laying back on the couch. Probably because the knees are too weak to support it.

LOL just kidding....I think....

Haha hey, maybe so! Mine actually isnt any worse than Robos. but still.

If you buy action figures just to "unbox or not, display and leave alone", you might as well just but statues.

If they really are loose right out of the box, that's obviously a problem. But I know some people will open ML figures up, pose them for hours and effectively loosen them up themselves...then complain about it. Heck, just reading some of the Amazon reviews is enough to make me smh; these aren't toys meant to be smashed around and beaten up. Even on the Sentinel review videos, I can't help but to cringe a bit when watching owners display joint articulation, literally working the joints a dozen times and then posing them 20 different ways. You buy it, unbox it (or not), display it and leave it alone. Any figure or product in general with a moving joint is going to wear down. Especially when it's three feet tall, made of plastic, and supporting a decent amount of weight.
