    I thought it would come off like the Shadow Commander. It just broke off. I put crazy glue but I would like to know how I would go about fixing it.

    That would require me to snap the neck again. You know how the Shadow Commander head just slides off? I did the same with the City Commander and the neck itself broke. I thought it was a ball joint but it wasn't. Not sure what kind of joint was but it's a soft plastic.

    I'll take some photos tomorrow.

    my city commander has a ball joint in the head connected to a plastic pin that slides in a hole in the neck. was It the silver neck peace that broke?

    Ouch-ka-bibble!!! If the Super glue doesn't work a complete neck joint replacement might work. This is all in theory thought until pics and whether or not the glue took and everything is fine.

    Mine was a red one but it didn't slide. (The Shadow Commander does). That's why it broke when I pulled it.

    Crazy glue held it in place but it has no articulation. I'll take some pics when I get a chance.

    I was unaware of any heads being able to "slide" off.

    Yeah, to change the face on the Shadow commander you can take the head off. I assumed that City Commander was designed the same. It wasn't so the neck joint broke.

    YIPEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I fixed it. I'll post some pics when I get a chance. Basically I melted a tiny hole in the neck and another hole in the head. Then I sanded down the back end of a missile thin enough to fit in the holes and then glued one end into the head creating a ball joint pin. The other end just slides in the neck just like the Shadow commander. By the way, the missile I used will be used in another project. One missile saves 2 figures! WOO!!!

    I miss read your comment. It wasn't the silver neck itself that broke but the red pin inside it. Well, now mine is a black pin.

    Pics.
