Default JLU figures question

I'm started putting together a small collection of all GL-related characters from Mattel's JLU line. Unfortunately, some of the figures have loose joints. And not just the used ones, some of them are loose right out of the card.

Does anyone know if anything can be done about this? The problem I'm seeing is that there doesn't seem to be an easy way to disassemble these figures. With my Transformers, I know how to unscrew and reassembly parts of a figure, or pop off a ball joint, but it looks like JLU figures might be glued together.

If anyone has any advice, it'd be appreciated, thank you!

The shoulders and hips are the biggest problems for me, any ideas?

right here!

loose joints on JLU ?

not really much you can do with that unless you glue them in place and thus loose their articulation

I have not disassembled any JLU but believe they are peg style joints like the DCUC C&Cs are

The joints aren't simple pins, I can tell by looking at my clear green Amazo. They're pins that are shaped like nails, with the wide head going inside the torso, so you can't yank the limbs loose.

Anywho, I think I figured out the problem with my Kyle Raynor: His leg may have actually been too tight instead of too loose, so I was actually twisting the pin instead of moving the joint. His leg just snapped off, but fortunately, I have a spare.
