    I am not a hardcore Transformers fan, but I have one toy which I wish I could play with now. It is a Battle Ops Bumblebee. My family got this toy for us when me and my brother were single digit ages. We tried to overstress the posablility on the cannon arm of the toy and now it is broken.
    Here are some images of the break.

    Must have tried to move the arm outwards. I was using Scotch Tape and Elmer's Glue to hold it stable. Now, I can't really transform it into either alt mode OR Robot Mode. It is broken. I have an Optimus Prime downstairs in our garage of unknown variety and a BotBots Con Crew from Amazon.(see image)

    Thus, I am not a big Transformers toy collector but I do have some.
    How bad is the break?

    You might be able to get a junker and replace the arm.
