Since I posted the same question here over a year ago, I have found a quite simple solution. I put bits of clear tape in the sockets. You have to experiment a bit with how much gives enough friction, but it works. The same can be done for loose legs. Just stick tiny bits of clear tape to the side(s) of the legs.

I have found a easy way to tighten up wobbly necks/heads of fabuland figs by using clear nailpolish topcoat.
When the heads of your figs are wobbly, the removal of the heads is just a bit more easy, still you have to pull a bitt hard (do it carefully)
Put the nailpolish topcoat on the round joint of the neck (nailpolish topcoat comes with a little brush in its cap)let it dry for like 30 minuten, than put the head back on the fig body.
Move the head around a bitt so the nailpolish topcoat that was on there too much comes lose, you can remove the lose tryed bits of topcoat with a needle or some sort of little pointy tool VERY carefully.
Now you fabuland fig can move there heads again!
Just noticed this little discussion. The same method for tightening the legs works for the arms and heads. It's the same principle You're creating a greater surface area by adding either the nail polish or clear coat. The solution is temporary but repeatable. Eventually the coating you add will wear down. Just re-apply your substance of choice.
