    Hello folks,

    So I received a used optimal optimus today, and I absolutely love him.
    One annoying thing happened though, the fixed one of the two hinges in the head/missile platform broke off. And I need to glue it back, otherwise it will dangle, which is bad for the wire going through it.

    I need to know if it's okay to just use some superglue, or if I need to use some other sort of special concoction.

    Attached an image of the joint in question.

    Thanks in advance!

    No idea if you can get it apart far enough to do this, but I would glue it, then drill into the broken part from inside and pin it.

    it's actually fractured past the joint part. I'll try to post a pic tomorrow,
    but it's a piece of the second section of the platform, that broke off, about half an inch after the joint.
