    Yesterday I decided to take Swoop out of the shelve just to transform him a few times and to have someone by my side while I do some work from home. To my surprise, his Pterodactyl feet broke as I grabbed him. I used super glue and left them sitting until this morning. When I tried putting them back, they broke again...

    Any suggestions on how to fix them? I don’t want to superglue in place because that is going to look awful.

    Pictures would be helpful so we could see exactly what the damage is.

    2 part epoxy for plastic is stronger IIRC, but any part that is a high stress point has a chance of breaking.

    Time for the OP to fire up the DeLorean! :D 

    I second the suggestion for epoxy. The only other choice would be to buy another one or try and find one on eBay for parts.
