I did a trade with a TFW board member in Canada for a the Chevy Aveo Swerve. Just got the item and the leg fell right off. It looks like the factory installed one of the pins in the legs at an angle so it took a chunk out of the plastic and my hopes for fixing it are slim. The board member is willing to let me ship my Swerve back to him and send me his but I'd feel bad because it's not his fault as the item was MISB. What should I do?
1) Does anybody here have a spare right leg for Swerve?
2) Should I just write it up as a loss? Or return the item?
3) If I keep it should I just glue it back together as a display item?
I'll post pictures when I get home in case somebody can suggest a way to fix it.
Pic 1 is pin. It was forced in at an angle so the hole is double the size now.
Pic 2 is where the pin should go. As you can see, the pin was forced in at an angle and took out a chunk. I'm afraid that if I straighten the pin and force it in the hole will crack completely. Or if it doesn't crack right away, it'll crack later with repeat transformation.
