Action figure repairs

Post by Jor-El on Wed Oct 01, 2008 7:32 am

Hey all

I've got a few things I want to fix. Just wondering what people use to fix broken joints and such on their figures.

Glue? Pegs? Any ideas?

And what would be the best glue to ensure the NECA Balrog's wings never come off again? Worst peg joints ever for a toy.

Superglue where possible or, in the case of broken pegs, screws.

Superglue, just make sure it's the clear type. I try to use as little as possible and redo it if it hasn't stuck the first time.

Nothing will fix that, i used metal pegs for it and super duper glue and they still fall off, i honestly don't think there is a way to attach such heavy a$$ed wings.....

I've seen some customisers use parts from those bionicle figures as substitute wing joints, but that's at a much smaller scale. Do you have a pic of the busted wing/joint?
