    in the past everybody has been the victim of weak plastic, myself twice, firstly on tm2 cheetor and secondly on animated bumblebee, now being one to allow broken transformers the chance of life rather than returning I was wondering if there is any way to salvage him.

    part of the socket has broken off and I have tried superglue, but now the arm refuse to stay in. Any ideas or should I get a new one?

    you could glue back together what you have and then recast it entirely so it would be one piece....

    I had the same problem with my animated bumblebee.. Glued it 5 times until there was nothing left to glue. Just get a new one. I used some part of the broken one for a cliffjumper repaint
