That really sucks I wanted the trunks to be my 1st S.H figure
It is still an awesome figure and you should definitely still look at getting it. If you do have a problem the 3 pack of Tamashii Act 4 stands (these are the ones included with the later releases) are great value at the moment. ToyArena has them for $14.99 a set.
Ouch, I think yours might be the only one with that? Might be an actual defect, did you buy him new or loose? Wonder who else has a SS3 Goku, I think @aussiedcfan recently got one. I wonder if his has the same problem?

Nothing wrong with my original SS Gohan yet that I have seen. Also I haven't got around to opening my SS3 Goku yet as I'm trying to set up a new display area but if I find that the hair comes off at the balljoint like that I'll let you guys know.

I think I have said it before but with any mass produced product there will always be some faults across the line. Not every figure will have the faults but some will. Just something that will happen to all collectors at some point.
Hmm...I'll make another minor title change, it's true that not every figure will have the problems listed.
I've posted the ones I've heard atleast 3 times so they're out there. As for the gohan, the forearm on mine does pop out a lot but that's thanks to the joint near the shoulder that is stiff/hard as fuh.
SDCC Vegeta, Android 17, and Manga Gohan is all that's left.
We need to add SDCC Goku to the list, can't vouch for the regular/original versions. The waist joint is particularly loose and does not support the legs if held above joint - doesn't hinder pose ability if free standing, only when unsupported; such as mounted on Tamashii stand.
For those with the saiyan vegeta scouter issues, I think not many people realise the scouter has a peg that needs to pin in properly, apart from the edge of the scouter clamping in between the face and the hair. You need to put the face on loosely, make sure to line up the peg in the little hole for it in the hairpiece and then press all parts simultaneously. It sits perfect on mine and it literally can't fall off. It has never come off since I did this on day one (I have his smirk on the scouter one, don't need the scouter for another expression).
Should resolve this issue...
Also, maybe it's me, but I swear Piccolo's right leg (from his POV) seems a tiny bit shorter than the other to me. I can't get him to stand both straight and with his legs in a symmetrical angle and I've given that quite the effort, looking at it from all angles etc. If you line up the body and legs perfectly underneath each other at the same angle, he stands a little tipped to his right. Have it on both my Piccolo's. Believe it or not, it bugs me, even though it's reaaaaally minor.XD
EDIT: My bad it's actually the hair piece that has the pin and the scouter the little hole, I think. Well either that or reversed, anyway, as soon as you get that tucked in, the scouter should stay pretty well in place.
Either way I can wiggle or rub it, it won't come off, won't even budge:
