    So it finally happened. My bludgeon`s right hand broke off :cry 
    I just glued it back using Canadian hobby craft insta cure. Hopefully he will still able able to hold at least one of his weapons =(

    Nah. As soon as you try and wedge that thing back in there it'll just snap apart again.

    NOOOOOOOO! Both hands of one of my ROTF Bludgeon broke off and I am not sure if he will be able to hold his swords anymore! D=
    There are some good news though... at least he retains his tank turret in robot mode and he could use unarmed combat =P
    Still this sucks =(
    I am trying to fix them with Canadian HobbyCraft instacure, hopefully it will work...

    This required a second thread?

    That is unfortunate though, I was lucky in that my figures hands have had no problems whatsoever. Try Plasti-weld... I find it holds a bit better - good luck with the hand surgery.

    Yes, now your Bludgeon can shoot people, provided they are directly above him.

    How did you break both hands? I have have both Bludgeon and Banzaitron and play around with them extensively. I have not broken either one of their hands.

    As I came home yesturday I wanted to transform him. He was in tank mode. When I turned him upside down I noticed this huge crack on the outside of his hand and I was :confused:  I pulled out the arm out of the tab then flipped out the hand then the fingers came right off...

    I then transformed the other hand. Everything looked fine. I placed his dagger in his hand put he was holding it awfully loose. I removed the dagger and then I noticed a smaller crack in the inside of his hand and I was like WTF!?!?!?


    So now I am trying to glue the pieces back together hopefully he will be able to hold at least one of his weapons =(

    Are you smashing his hands with a ball peen hammer? Sure the tolerances to put the weapons into the hands aren't perfect but if you use a little finesse and patience you should have no issues.

    It may have been just a bad plastic. Or there may have been air in the mold. Sucks though.

    Get yourself a Banzaitron, he looks better.

    I don't own either, but seeing them in the shops I see that Banzaitron looks a bit more well-endowed chestwise, and makes him look almost female. Bludgeon, although using the same mold, doesn't have it stick out as obviously.

    Banzaitron is more colourful, but Bludgeon does look better, imo.

    I dont use his stock swords, I am using various Spawn swords that are not as thick, hence his thumbs dont get damaged.

    I just had this happen, went to put his sword into his hand and it broke clean in half. I wish the new Head Robots thing came with new hands too, but I guess I'll just have to buy another and be extra careful.
