    I just got a Leader class Cybertron Megatron in a lot the other day. It turns out both pegs that held his torso together have snapped off. Any ideas on how you'd repair this?

    As you can see the pegs on his rotating shoulder pieces have broken off. It bugs me because if I try to move him at all he flops around.

    Are you talking the ones under the shoulders in the picture, or to the peg holes to the left of the head? I have this figure (in storage), but i'm having a hard time remembering exactly how this works. I know it's a bit much, but could you move one side, and maybe even point(or circle) the peg and hole you are talking about?

    R!

    Yep, the ones under the shoulder. They would peg in to the two ports seen on the inside of his torso.

    Crap, that sucks. :lol 

    Well, you could drill a tiny hole through the center of the peg and shoulder piece. Add a piece of wire through that hole, then add a tiny tube of styrene around that to lengthen the peg. What this does is strengthen the NEW post to the shoulder piece with metal wire (this could be as simple as a paperclip). I'd probably recomend cutting off more than that tiny bit that broke off, otherwise it's most likely going to chip off again with the stress. The longer the post, the more amount of mass there is to flex while trying to peg into the hole. Does that make sense?

    R!

    I might actually have a pair of those arms lying around in a parts box, shoulders and all.

    I forgot to check the bin. You should probably PM me as a reminder.

    K, I found the parts. Are you talking about the small pegs on the teal part of the shoulder area?
