SHF Dark Precure Help - Broken joint?SHF Dark Precure Help - Broken joint?Ask MFC

So my sister's S.H,Figuarts Dark Precure's leg popped out, and while we can plug the small peg on the leg back into the hip, it just falls out again.

It doesn't look like anything is broken though, and at the moment, I'm afraid if I put glue on the peg and plug it in, it'll possibly affect the poseability in the future.

Anyway, pics:

So I'm hoping for suggestions, please!

kyoshinhei5 kuukautta sitten#106033787If it's not broken and just popped out then you probably just need to thicken the peg/ball a bit so that it'll hold more firmly in its socket.
When I need to do that, I usually use a very thin layer of cyanoacrylate glue that I sprinkle with baking soda. It hardens the glue instantly and gives it a bit of volume. Then sand it smooth with some 1000 grit sandpaper and you should be good to go.
If it ends up too thick, sand more. Too thin, more glue+baking soda.
There's an example in this article
Just be careful to only apply the glue on the peg and nowhere else, I suggest applying the glue with a needle rather than directly from the bottle.

I did something similar with nail polish once, which popped off the peg, but I'll try this too. Thanks for the suggestion
