    Fixing or reinforcing hinges on Castle Grayskull?

    I've just bought my first Castle Grayskull (it only took me 34 years) for 6yr old Jr. jjhuehn and its great but I can see that a couple of the hinges (the tab part, not the cylinder part) are weak and I'm sure they'll snap once the Castle is played with. So I was hoping someone in the He Man hivemind may have had some success in fixing said hinges. I'm thinking some sort of reinforcement is needed (as opposed to just the use of glue) so I've been trying to think of a way to add structural integrity to the tab's outter edge (possibly a metal strip in the shape of the hinge tab). In general, is there a particular type of glue that works best on 30+ year old plastic? Any advice would be appreciated.

    I am not sure which glue is suitable with Castle Grayskull.

    Cool. I've come up with a solution. I'll post my technique when I'm done.

    Yeah, the hinges break pretty easily with play. I'd be interested to see your solution
