Some repair advice?

Post by adamatsya on Sat Sep 22, 2012 2:20 pm


I've ended up with an Orange Lantern Lex Luthor with a couple of problems that I'm trying to fix. Long story short I got the refund but I still have the figure too, so trying to make the best of it.

Any tips on glue to use on action figures? There are two little cables in the chest armor that aren't attached to the sockets above, but I reckon they could be glued in place with the right glue.

The other problem is a very loose torso joint - he spins like a top from the chest up when you give him a flick. Doesn't hold any poses. Floppy as. I'm thinking of boiling and popping and seeing if I can get the pieces to lock closer together. Anyone ever tried boil-and-pop on translucent plastic? Would there be any issues with that kind of plastic? I've b-n-p-ed other DCUC before with no problems, but only heads and hands, never torsos.

Any advice appreciated.
