You might want to show the pics to tfsource and see if they will replace it.
I know. That's why I tried to make sure to get the molding issue in the picture of the truck body. tfsource has been great in getting me replacement pieces for my TFC Herc set that I was not able to fix on my own. If i'm able to fix this to where it is structurally sound i'm not going to bother them. I'm drying glue right now after filing so the joint breaks are smooth & even. I also rounded the edge of the pivoting piece thoroughly with a 1/2 round file. The other side is very tight as well so I will use a paper file to round it off some while it's attached because these pins will NOT come out, no matter how much effort is exerted. I'll keep y'all abreast of the situation. Thanks.
Honestly, after dropping $120 on a set of figures, you shouldn't have to go through that.
Considering that the break actually wraps around a pin from what I'm seeing, I don't think the fix you made will last. It's what I will call a stress point as it is moved during transformations. It will most likely break again.
