    I have for sale/trade 4 Classics Rodimus'. They all suffer the same malady. All have broken chest hinges (see pics). Unbroken and complete these guys are selling in the 60 to 80 range on EvilBay. So please keep that in mind when making offers. I'm open to cash and/or trade for these guys. I'd also be open to trading for and/or buying junker Classics Roddys that do not suffer from the broken hinge syndrome. I'd really like to save at least one of these guys so I can capitalize on the EvilBay craze as I could really use the money for Botcon.

    And without further adieu here are the pics.
    Broken Roddy #1
    Complete with weapon/missile. $45 shipped. SOLD!

    My guess is that it's a weak point in the mold. The Roddy in my personal collection has a couple stress marks in the same spot. They still hold together pretty well in both modes despite the defect. Roddy #3 is the loosest in that spot because both sides of the hinge are broken.

    Just seems odd for one person to have 4 toys broken in the same place. I have a classics and henkei, and neither of them have any stress marks or anything.

    It was a transfomation thing, if you TF him without pulling the arms out first this happens, I seen it happen to one and a friend did it to one I had ( had it for just a week and he broke it so I went to WM and got a new one) if I had been smart I would have keep the other one too.

    bah just fix them hinges are easy to fix if you have the right tools just takes alot of patience and such and helps if you have the broken pieces too.
