So eh i just brought a figure that actually need figure for assembling for the first time and it don't come with a manual so i just stumbled around and try to assemble it.



While trying to assemble the sword and the hand, i applied too much force and the hand snapped off so wondering what should i do and how to fix it



the hand isn't supposed to move i believe so is superglue possible in the situation ?

Edit : Decided to use super glue and it worked like a charm.

Finally completed the figure

All hail goddess Purple Heart, now if only they make a Black Heart figure

Yeah using superglue would be my first port of call!
Perhaps Araldite, but most people don't have any of that haha


Looks pretty sweet to me, where did you pick it up?

I brought it online from Amiami website, not sure how it works for people living in england through. Perhaps a hobby shop website that deliver stuffs to UK could work for you i guess.

Just a heads up...

Superglue is really good at holding things together if you pull them straight apart, but useless if you twist them apart, or put stress on the joint from an angle.

If it comes off again, you'll want to Pin it together.
