    i'm sorry if this is in the wrong section I just wasnt ure where to put it

    about a year ago the ball sockect on the left shoulder on my tfa bumblebee cracked i thought it was nothing and let it be, but recently the crack got bigger and about a third of the socket broke off making it impossable to keep the arm attacted iv'e tried some super glue to re-attach the peice but to no avail, does anybody have any ideas on what to do?

    You might try gently removing all the super glue & it's residue using a mild solvent (alcohol...?), then try using rubber cement or tile glue.

    Whichever you try - remember to let it cure/set for around 24 hours before you re-mount the arm...

    But you might be looking at simply trying to replace him...:eek:

    Not worth the trouble. Just get another one when they go on sale.

    In the future, please use the "Report Bad Post" feature to alert one of us about this rather than posting the instructions. Thanks :thumb
