    Buy a new one but only if it doesn't cost more than retail.

    Buy one if you can find one at retail price or less if not just glue it.

    I'd just get a new one if you can still find one.

    I personally don't understand why so many people hate her design... she looks great to me, I love how unique it is.

    One of the new Target exclusive two-packs has Arcee with a pretty awesome color scheme (a slightly more subdued pink/purple than the original hot pink, and offset with some gold); I can't remember the other figure in the set, but it might be worth looking into.

    This! I saw it in the store today and was very tempted. It comes with a Barricade in neon colors.

    If you can just buy a new one. Glue it together if you must but there is always the possibility that it will just break again.

    Since eagc7 lives in Guatemala the Target set may not be an option at the moment. Also Arcee comes with Tailwhip. Barricade comes with Sideswipe.

    If they allow you to do so then return it. If they don't allow you to return it then glue it. If I were in your position I would glue it and buy another one, but that's mostly because I like the RotF Arcee design.

    If you have any hand for customs I'm sure there is a lot that could be done with a set of Arcee parts and some ingenuity. You might also be able to trade it for parts to some Radicon to go towards getting a new one.

    Glue it for now and then try to get a used one, either as a spare or to swap out the broken parts.

    I mean that if you have an interest in doing so then I'm sure there are some interesting customs that could be made from an Arcee mold (or even just its un-broken parts combined with other "junker" figures).

    Baring that you might be able to trade your broken Arcee to someone who wants its parts in exhange for them giving you some money to go towards buying a new Arcee.

    Both deluxe femme bot bikes were so awful. I took them off display & shoved them, into a loose parts/weapons TF gym bag.
