    No, I know definitively that one side clips and one doesn’t.

    Roddy is very fiddly but I can get everything flush without the need for that tab.

    Edit: Just check 1 page back in the review thread. Picture of this being possible right there.

    A lot of the white plastic joints on my Captimus Prime (the Optimus that turns into a hat) is cracked. It was like that before I put him into storage for the move and since I had a million other things on my mind, I forgot about it. When I pulled him out, transformed him and examined him, it all came rushing back. :(

    The tail of my Torca broke off. One of the hide is stiff, so I am afraid to transform it.

    Dear Hasbro, please retool Rhinox into Torca!

Does anyone know how to fix it?

    SS86 Slag’s left knee’s ratchet broke. Not the end of the world, but it definitely makes that figure even more lackluster.

    My Unite Warriors Wildrider's roof sheared off in my hands on the last transformation. Still works in bot and combined modes but he'll never be a car again.

    Plastic Welder bonds metal as well as plastic. Permatex also makes their own version, and JB Weld has a "plastic bonder" that works pretty well too.

    Would that hold the weight of the arm and the ratchet?

    It's rated at 3500psi, so I would say yes.

    A screw would definitely help, as it would serve as a physical connection that would solidify the joint (much as I did for G1 Shockwave's arms). Drill a hole in the parts before bonding to accept a screw in the final position, then mix the adhesive, apply, then use the screw to screw the parts together and let cure for 24 hours. Remember to clean the areas to be joined (and the screw threads) with 91% alcohol to remove any residual grease or oils/ dirt from them that may affect adhesion.

    Worst broken figure I've had is Fast Action Battlers Starscream. His legs snapped clean about 5 years ago, and just this year he lost another limb (his arm). Snapped just as cleanly. Yuck!
    Studio Series Devcon looking real good...

    I recently transformed my MP-10 into robot mode and noticed the leg flap suddenly felt lose. The whole thing didn’t snap, only part of it did. It’s connected by one pin on two sides and on side just snapped clean off. I can still transform him but that genuinely hurt my heart. He was MY Optimus, the one I considered better than all the new Mp attempts.
