Apparently they're bringing back Shogun Warriors!!

They're starting off with Voltron robots, but waiting in the bullpen are names like Combattler and Voltes V. I will drop $200 on a Jumbo Machinder Voltes V, easy.

Speaking of toys, here's a fix-it question for all the toy experts out there. Last Xmas I picked up a Godaikin "Guardian" (or "Gordian" or "Garbin", whatevah) at an antique mall for a really low price.

Low price was because it's missing some pieces and because the legs are broken just below the knees. I like to think this Guardian owed some gentlemen some money.

It's a relatively clean break. If you stick the lower leg part to the knee part, it all fits.
It reveals a weakness in the robot's design- a weakness that could one day be exploited by Gordian's many enemies - but for now it's merely a repair job.

So my question is, what's the best way to stick this thing back together? Superglue? Some exotic epoxy concoction? Elmer's school glue in the big easy to grasp bottle for little hands? Library paste? That cold-weld stuff you use on car radiators? Inquiring minds of all the little guys shoved inside Garbin like so many Russian nesting dolls need to know!!
