Help Repairing Face off Captain America

Postby Grayfox1986 » Mon Aug 12, 2013 6:21 pm

Hello everyone!

I'm new to this website and I'd like to get some advice on repairing a figure. Basically, I purchased Face off Captain America variant brand new on eBay. Turns out the left leg is loose and honestly i'm not sure how to fix it.

It looks like the plastic holding the leg isn't pushed all the way through. Can this be fixed?

Thank you in advance.

So he's loose at the knee? If so and if the peg is still intact it's a real easy fix. Just heat up around the socket preferably with a hairdryer but if not putting it in some boiling water will work. Them simply push the peg through till it sits where you want it too. If the peg is broken, you're going to need something to replace it with either a similar peg or something of similar diameter.
