    My Transmutate leg broke off. I thought it had some articulation. I was messing with it and it broke off. DAMNIT!! Tried glue but the stuff isn't drying very fast...

    Yeah, there's been a thread or two about this. To repeat one more time: NOBODY TRY AND MOVE YOUR TRANSMUTATE LEG. IT WILL BREAK.

    Don't mess with glue. Epoxy that bad boy and you'll be as good as new.

    Hasbro should start including a warning slip with this piece of Transmutate.

    Which BW 10th figure does the leg come with? Depending on who it is, I'll buy the figure off of you for $10, so you can go buy another for a new leg.

    This warning should really be stickied or something; this has got to be at least the sixth time I've heard of someone breaking Transmutate's leg off (counting me breaking one I bought :(  ). Imagine Rhinox is going to be selling at a premium shortly...

    I too, broke Transmutate's leg off as well, and really, if you're going to make something like this with ball joints that obviously look like they could be moveable, don't make it out of rubbery plastic!

    Would it be too much trouble to maybe ask for some diagrams of this breakable leg so that no one else makes the same mistake?

    This is the 4th time Ive heard this happen here. There should be a Transmutate warning guide somewhere.
    I would've broke mine off as well If I did'nt notice someones post who broke their first.

    Don't know why they just did'nt give him some articulation on that stuck leg.
    Waited a long time for this cheapo.

    Some people just return theirs for a new leg part. Hopefully you can get an easy replacement.
    Im too uncomfortable owning superglued TF's



    Someone do a Transmutate Warning thread!! The TA needs it.
    Even the TF GD section could benefit from it.

    Then FRONT PAGE THAT MUTHA!!!!

    Must get word out more so more fans don't have this problem.

    Here's a couple of pictures:

    This joint doesn't rotate...

    And this is what happens if you use too much force trying to rotate that joint...

    i thought figures like transmute should be good quality like the sentinal and apocolips from the x-men figures.

    Still glad I read TFW2005 and decided to wait for all six figures before opening the boxes and assembling Transmutate. :)
