I have two figures with the same broken hip joint issue. The figures are a Marvel Legends Icons Thor and a SOTA Guile. I found a You Tube Video that seems to address the issue I have. My breaks are the same as the one in the video. I can post pics if need be. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=enp0CeqfRnU
I have a few questions about the repair
1. I would have to buy a rotary tool, the glue and the brass rod. I'd like to do this through Amazon. Here are links to what I was looking to buy.
Glue- I was going to use Gorilla Glue, or is there something better and cheap/easily available that works over the long haul for plastic?
Home Depot had 1/8 Steel Rods at 36 inch length, smallest size, for 2.29. Would those work?
2. Will this repair work for the figures I'm looking to repair, or should I go a different route? I've never done a repair like this, but don't mind attempting. I'm getting a rotary tool for Christmas anyhow. Gives me something to test it out on. I don't care so much about the Guile as I do the Thor. I figured I'd use Guile as the test run. I also don't need a super high end rotary tool. just something that can get small projects done.
Thanks in advance for the advice and time.
