    Hi. I recently purchased a Legendary Toys Optimus Prime LT02 for my son who is a keen collector and very skilled at transforming these figures. But the first time he tried to transform LT02 the foot snapped clean off on the hinge. As you can guess he is really upset. I have tried 3 different types of glue/epoxy for plastics but none of them will bond the break, they just won’t hold. Has anyone else had this issue and if so what did you do? Also does anyone know how I could contact Legendary Toys in China to make them aware of this issue? Thanks so much.

    Can you drill both sides and glue a pin in there?

    That’s a good idea and I had suggested it to my father in law who is great at fixing stuff but he said the hinge is too thin and that it would be like doing micro surgery
    :(

    The same exact thing happened to mine. I found a glue that was durable enough to hold securely even through ham fisted transformations. Once I get home I'll post the brand I used since I cant think of it off the top of my head.

    That would be amazing, thanks so much. I’m usually pretty good at fixing any minor breaks on his transformers but the three glues I’ve tried with LT02 just wont bond. It’s a relief to know you’ve found a glue that will hold, especially during transformation. He’s not heavy handed, he has the Unique Toys Challenger Optimus too and transforms him like a dream but LT02’s foot snapped on first contact. Thanks again for your help.

    Hey there. Did you manage to check which glue you used to fix your LT02? Sorry to chase but my son is really keen for us to get fixing

    Try CA glue but this time add some baking soda at the area. It should solidify into a concrete-like rough texture which you can then sand off.

    Be careful, I have no idea how CA+baking soda would react to the paint on LT-02. Also, don't get it on your skin, it stings as it causes a heat reaction.

    On a side note, check videos for Iron Warrior Jet Power Armor IW-06
    Iron Warrior Jetpower armor for MPM-4 Optimus Prime

    It's an add on for MPM-04 / LT-02, if the broken part doesn't seem important, maybe this addon will take the pain of not being able to transform it again.

    Also happened on mine. It’s an extremely fragile part of the figure sadly and too much force will shave that peg clean off. I tried to glue it but it’s no use on my copy.

    He’s permanently in truck mode now and I just have other things I’d rather buy than replace him.

    I hope you’re able to fix your copy, it’s a good figure really when it works properly

    That's a good trick, I will definitely try that sometime.
