Was wondering before I tried plastic welding him.
Why bother, just find another. There are a besquillion about.
Ya, I have a set of his arms I wanted to use for a project and just wondered if anyone knew what he was.
Why are there so many of them?
Cuz he's awesome?
He's just normal plastic isn't he?
Wait - I thought Twin Twist sucks?
I thought he was made from refined polyethylsuckitude.
That's why it's awesome!
I've always loved the Jumpstarters. They have neat designs with cool looking sculpted details. And when you're in Third Grade and it's never been done before the fact that there's new transformers that can transform automatically is amazingly awesome.
-ZacWilliam, remember every boy in our class crowding around the first kid that got one and watching the coolness.
Probably ABS plastic.
Most likely PVC and possibly some abs. Be careful around the fumes.
regular plastics, no styrene
Oh, you mean like ABS?
Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene
Not a lot of PVC in those old figures. PVC in toys is usually the softer flexible plastic.
Most hobby plastic welds will work on ABS, and some will work on PVC as well. If, you end up having to go the superglue route, I recommend Zap A Gap. It holds better than any other superglues/CA glues I've tried.
