Default Potential weak spot on MPM4

Recently, someone on Reddit posted that they noticed a crack on a joint on their MPM4. The part in question is the pin hinge that holds the side window and top part of the door that forms part of the chest in robot mode. I checked mine upon reading the post, and sure enough, it's cracked:





Now I'm exploring options for repair. I'm thinking of getting some plastic cement like Revell Contacta and applying a tiny amount to the crack to reseal the plastic.

Thank you for sharing,
be careful not to glue the joint. it might be better to let sleeping dogs lie.

Yep, keep it in robot mode forever. I have big stress marks on the long thin parts that swing out to form the hood of the truck.
