    Default Potential revolutionary method of repairing old toys - Baking Soda

    We all know that super glue sucks on anything that requires pressure or movement. It's just not very 'super'.

    I will give it a go when the inevitable opportunity arises. Old G1 toys are showing a lot of age. Even non-GPS toy plastic is becoming to rigid and inflexible almost guaranteeing breakage if transformed or moved.

    Very interesting. I see a problem where the the part you are fixing is visible because that would look pretty crap. But where you can get to bits to fix them where it can’t be seen, it should work brilliantly.
