Well ,
Thursday evening , returning from work
thinkin of a great weekend with the Alien Vs Predator game out
i walk into my room
and OH NOES
whole figure collection (it sits on a shelf) is on floor
scatterd to parts and pieces , but my most beloved predator (well i got one , that is) is missing a leg.

after arranging the mess i took the pred on the side , ive seen the leg was broken on the join , and it looks like its glueable
i tried superglue - and for now it sticks - is there any proffesional plastic cement u guys recommend or should i just go ahead and start searchin for a body?

i was lucky he was the only one broken , oh , and why and how did it happen?
i left the window open , a picture fell on the shelf and dropped em all

**crit**

Thanks for the help!

you're talkin about your hot toys wolf aren't cha? that sucks man :) my lost predator fell and lost a leg a few months ago, i was devastated!!!, anyhow, the way i went about fixing it is not what i would recommend (cause nothin else was workin) i ended up basically using scotch tape to tape the leg to the ball joint on the hip, but i had already put a gloss coat on him and he had netting and thigh armor to cover most of it so you really can't see the shininess of the tape or tell anythings wrong except you can't twist his leg up there, oh well when do i. anyhow, like i said that wouldn't be the best idea especially on that figure cause he doesn't have netting or thigh armor on that part, sorry about your unsettling experience buddy, i also had my P2 elder fall from 6 feet up and he somehow managed to survive, i always knew that mother ****** was a bad ass :)

lol
iron man lost a part too but nothing broken (and constructed back)
i ended superglueing him - like new now
also got a new body (wolf as well) for when he sees "worse days"
lol
now trying to construct an elder/scar out of scratch - mixing and matching really

I feel your pain.

On Sat. @ 6:00 in the a.m., I awoke to a loud "BANG"! Drowsy, I looked around the living room (I was sleeping on the couch), but didn't notice anything out of the ordinary. So, I closed my eyes, wondering what it was that made that noise... then it hit me... I looked up at my bookshelf where I had my 12" interlocking PREDATOR on display, and much to my dismay, I noticed that my PREDATOR wasn't there.

I was mortified!!! :) On the floor, lay one of my most prized collectibles. Arm broken off, tusks broken off, many chips missing out of it, broken fingers.... needless to say I wasn't a very good peron to be around that day. :) Now, I have to save my pennies to buy another one, because the only way to get another is to pay a hefty price.

So, yes... I am feeling your pain man.

I tend to use a plastic glue you can buy at most auto parts stores. This stuff will actually melt the two pieces fusing them together and making a better bond than superglue. Just make sure not to over use it. The name escapes me but I bought it at O'Riellys Auto Parts.


Edit: The glue is called Grip-ton-nite. lol Cheesy name but it works well.
