I would try taking the torso apart, and applying a thin layer of clear nail polish to the inside of the neck socket and the arm sockets. Test the tightness after it dries and add more coats as needed.

I know it's an old thread, but wanted to add that I've been using clear varnish lately with good results. Just make sure you continue to move the joints around during drying, so there's no stick.
