My figure won't keep its helmet on and if I get it one it is very loose and will spin around.

    Have you tried the helmet on another head and another helmet on that head? – Raystafarian Mar 17 at 6:08
  • That won't help if head and helmet belong to this particular minifig. – Aziraphale Mar 17 at 15:51

    Are you sure that it's a genuine LEGO figure? It would well be a lower quality bootleg. – TheBrickBlogger Mar 17 at 16:22

The best and most effective technique I've come across is to use a bit of nail varnish on the inner anti-stud of the helmet piece, as Tonk explained on his blog TonksToysBlog. Just be sure to apply a very tiny amount and give it plenty of time to dry.

Also, if it matters to you, the helmet you have pictured does not go to the figure pictured. The figure is Jay Legacy from 2019. The helmet, on the other hand, is 98133pb02 from 2012-2016.

  • Shouldn't the pieces be interchangeable and still fit well? – tooshel Mar 21 at 3:39
  • Most likely, yes. I don't see that as being the problem but you never know. – Magnus Mar 21 at 21:41

Assuming that they came together as a set, some Lego helmets don't fit tight in order to make it "easier" to put the helmet on, and if not, might not fit correctly at all. However, there could be an issue with the pieces itself. Get a cotton swab and some water, DO NOT USE ALCOHOL, as it will eat at the paint, and clean out the contacts.

  • Hi and welcome to Bricks.SE. Cleaning the head and helmet would result in even less clutch power, wouldn't it? – Aziraphale Mar 20 at 8:24

Hmm... Looks like his character is fairly new, with it being introduced this year, Jay (Legacy). With the relative newness of the pieces, I'm surprised the clutch strength is at issue.

Well, anyway, head over to LEGO's customer service page and fill out the request to replace your broken piece(S). I'm emphasizing because we don't know which piece, Helmet or Head, is "jayed" up.

Parting words of advise: "Sunlight is the LEGO killer": Be cautious of any of your precious pieces being exposed to direct sunlight. The darker the piece the more warping sun heat it will absorb. I've ruined sculptures this way, where they just fall apart after spending a month in the sun on a shelf.
