    What TF guns, swords, or clip weapons have broken on you over the years?

    I ask because my Skullgrin's missile launcher broke today. That was my favorite 3mm clip weapon, too :(

    BW S1 Cheetor's gun tip on the tail broke at some point in the last three years. BW Razorclaw's gun claw arm broke on both the normal and the dark red and teal version, forcing me to merge the two figures together.

    my WFC megs, ROTF breakaway, and my DOTM shockwave. when i broke my shocky i was pissed cause when i was transforming him, i put a little too much pressure on him and the peg keeping his head on his torso snapped in half and now his head and backpack are just resting on the body :( . and if i use the appoxie (or however it's spelled and i recommend it cause it's worked wonders for my WFC megs and my breakaway) on the peg, he might not be able to turn his head.

    The peg on my DOTM Skyhammer's weapon snapped off in his arm... Now they're impossible to find so I can replace the weapon! (And customize the 2nd)

    G1 Prowl's rifle. My G1 Prowl is acquainted well with superglue anyways, though :) 

    Since '84, that's just about it that I can recall.

    My G1 Slag's Guns scope... its made with the tiniest width of plastic that can physically be possible to make... it snapped off years ago, got superglued a billion times until I decided to just give up.

    I think that decision was when the superglue blob was actually BIGGER then the bit that snapped off... lol.

    Also my G1 seekers long missiles had their tips snapped off, some by accident, some to match the other ones.

    Which was stupid. I was a stupid kid.

    Yep, I'm in this boat. But I'm sure I'm a baby compared to most of you, so no G1 stuff for me. Losing weapons is the worst for me. I will never touch a figure that is missing parts until I find or replace said parts. I'm weird like that.

    Not a "weapon" break itself......but this is as close as it can get to me:


    I broke the peg that's inside the Micocon's peg on my Drivetrain.:(

    Did the barrel snap off? My G1 Bluestreak's did. And it's such a small contact point that I could never glue it back on securely.

    my leader ironhide's knife broke in half not too long ago. he fell right on the knife so it was bent and when i tried to bend it back, it snapped. i've also lost both cannons to my 07 ironhide. i would rather have had them cracked or something so i didn't have to spend money on another one.

    Well crap. Something in DotM Voyager Optimus Prime's gun cracked and the gears no longer line up properly. That's the second weapon that has broken on me this week!

    The worst part is that gun was the only reason I bought that crappy Prime in the first place!!! :mad

    Sums up my contribution.

    EDIT: Forgot about Wreckage and Deluxe Bludgeon's swords.

    Tonnes of shit's gotten lost, but broken... I dunno. Like, maybe the Action Master bike counts, but that's only because I robbed it of the cannon to give to one of my Megatrons.

    Ah! I knew when I was posting I forgot some things. My DotM Ironhide gun has a small part broken on the inside that locks it. Those weapons are not meant to withstand the constant play, as ever since I've gotten it I'd sit there with it and keep spinning the barrel with the trigger play.

    I've a very good track record that I've always been proud of with my toys from my youth up to now, and I know I'm still forgetting things, but it's still very minimal.

    Only one I can think of off hand is PRiD Cyberverse Commander Optimus Prime, he comes with 2 guns, the day I got it, one wouldn't stay on and the other was way, super, tight. When I transformed him, I went to put the guns on his roof, and the super tight one's handle snapped off.

    Luckily, it has 2 handles but, the second handle, is tighter than the first, so it won't even go in the hole. The handles themselves are oval instead of circle.
