    I was just fiddling with the stock of the gun, the part that is made to swing down so Prime can hold it, and the plastic around the rivet on the hinge broke. It was as if the plastic got brittle. It was already a soft plastic, but it just crumbled. As I was typing this, I picked it up and it broke in 3 more places. Looks like GPS, but only for a modern toy and black plastic.

    That happened to me the first time I folded the stock down. I thought I just got unlucky. It sucks that it seems to be more common than I thought. I really don't care the gun anyway. <3 me some Energon Axe.

    Mine broke too. Seems the plastic they're using isn't as durable as the old days. I fear all of our current toys are going to fall apart in 5 years.

    Mine broke at a different spot, the part that connects it to the gun.

    That's where mine broke the second time. First the hinge, then the place where it connected to the gun handle.

    Good to know that I need to watch out for this. I disassembled mine the other day and nothing was broken but I do have a high moisture content in my house so that usually helps keep things from drying out.
