    My daughter is apparently part monkey. While my son and I were opening up some new acquisitions, she climbed up onto the kitchen table, availed herself of Backfiery, and chewed off one of his antenna. Thankfully she's okay, but I now have an insect with only one antenna.

    I e-mailed Fansproject to see if they sell spare parts but haven't heard back yet. How does everyone here fix broken pieces? Just ignore it? I'm certainly not going to buy another Backfiery to replace the alt mode head when I figure on leaving it in bot mode most of the time.

    Still haven't heard from FP. Even posted on their FB page. :/

    Well it's not their responsibility to warrant stuff you break.

    Backfiery didn't come out long ago. I'd maybe contact the retailer you bought it at.

    Reading comprehension for the win: "I e-mailed Fansproject to see if they sell spare parts"

    I don't expect to warrant damage that was caused by my mistake, I simply wanted to see if they sold extra parts.

    I'm not sure if FP or the retailer can provide a part in this case. However, if you wanted to fix it, you could try supergluing the broken bit off (assuming you still have it and it isn't in too bad a shape. Another option is crafting something out of putty and/or styrene to match the antenna and repainting it yellow. That's if you want to go the DIY route.
