    I brought out my BotCon exclusives yesterday to transform and fiddle around with since I found the three new ones.

    So I'm transforming Thrust's feet when, *SNAP*, I hear a break.

    Turns out one of the hinges that the right foot pivots on got a clean break right across the pin hole on the leg. It's a clean break, no shrapnel came off, and the foot still pivots rather tightly.

    I tried supergluing the break to reinforce it some but it snapped again after I let it dry and transformed again.

    My question is, are there any good solutions to fix it?

    I'd make the holes bigger and sand down the hinge part of the foot so it's rounded. Then glue the bits back together. Sanding down the hinge part on the foot is all you really should need to do, but doing both will make it have a redundancy to make sure it doesn't happen again.

    RW, could you post some photos of your damage? It definitely sounds fixable.

    wtf. I've never heard of any version of this mold having a break there.

    Dammit, I keep forgetting that posts in here don't show up on my User CP.

    I'll try to get a pic of it sometime soon.
