    Little help? Was reorganizing some living space and Magnus, fully armored, fell from his shelf, landed on his head, and the head piece broke off. I've never been good with glues, what would be the best recommendation?

    Yeah, but I think he's specifically talking about the neck piece. Though which one has me wondering.

    Is it the red (?) peg that the head connects to, or the actual silver painted neck?

    Replace it with a screw, screw it into the body and file down the head to a ball shape. That's what I would do but remember if you use a dremel to file down the head of the screw it might melt the plastic.

    Not on the city commander.It was only removable starting with the SC armour, because of the interchangable faces. I've heard the PC armour has this too.

    Thats one of the reasons why I have some of my most expensive pieces put up in my closet. All my G1 figures are really in my closet but thats because I don't want to risk anything falling down.

    I've got the first run City Commander. The head is removable. Just pull straight up, it's just a straight peg and a balljoint. The peg part should just pop right out.

    Cut a 5mm long pin from a paper clip, drill holes in both parts, then super glue the pin in one part, let it dry, then super glue the other part on top of that. The pin will make a much more stronger connection than just using super glue.

    I like Gorilla Glue better than Super Glue. Seems to work very well with repairs and custom kits.
