    Yup, title says it all. I was transforming Wreck-Gar from vehicle to robot mode and while trying to unpeg one of the handles to tranform his leg, I evidently put a little too much force into the handle and SNAP!! I broke it...

    For some reason on my figure the handle bars on the bike are tight when trying to transform his leg but I guess I put to much force to it??? IDK.. :confused: 

    Luckily I have 2 of these figures but, now I'm going to keep this one in bike mode. As you can see below, I broke it, that plastic snapped in half. It still doesn't take away how awesome this figure is but I do want to warn everyone who owns the figure and notice that the handle bars on the bike are tight, becareful when transforming it. You don't want to end up with this same situation, especially if you only own 1 and hard to get. :(

    That's a shame, a bit of careful supergluing will do the trick!

    I broke the left antenna of mine (his left; if we're looking at him, the right), but I decided "screw it, he's a Junkion, it makes sense".

    And it's not like I yanked the darn toy to transform the handle bars, but you do have to put a little bit of elbow grease to unpeg the handle bars but it snapped.... I was like " WHAT THE HECK!!"

    This is my 1st transformers I break...never broken a figure once as I'm very careful with my investments.
