Hi need help fixing a broken arm...please

Posted in Custom Workstation


I just got a new Neca Figure - C.Viper and it came with a broken arm.
I can't manage to remove the pin in the shoulder joint.

The broken piece is behind the joint.

If I remove it I can glue the broken part and put the arm back.

I can't post link or images so there isn't much I can explain.

Please if anyone have a tip it will be really helpful!


Sorry if my English is bad...

Is a little like that but the problem is not in the torso.
Is in the arm.

The torso has a broken piece but is easy to fix.
I just have to remove a rod in the arm.
But I can't is too damn hard.

If I could just post one picture this will be much easy. ....

Thanks for trying to help.

Hey countpichula,

No the torso is fine. The figure is a Crimson Viper from NECA Street Figter 4

I just that the part that connects the shoulder in the torso is broken is like these: Head
o-- Torso --o <- these one broke and is like these now --c the rod goes inside the "o"
and the piece missing is inside the shoulder behind the rod....

I don't know if it really explain the problem
I would be easy post the images or links but the admin won't let me ....

Thanks for the help bye the way

Now did you crack the torso? It could be gears ,then no amount of heating and popping will work. I highly recommend a dremmel, or small bit drill. Then a nail hole puncher. Or small pick. Drill below the arms and I also always drill on top of the shoulders or on the neck ( but in a downward direction) makes stress more evenly distributed.
I'll look around, I've never worked with a viper gig. What line? As I k kw their were one ortwo different lines? I'll see if I can find an image of the insides. I'm working on making a list with pics of the insides of figs so one can quick reference for often used figs.

Thanks for the quick answer!

Great forum

Before I made the topic I checked all the tutorials but none help me dissemble
this figure.

The rods are really hard to remove. Right now thats is my only problem.

The rod in the shoulder. I can't post images unfortunately so I will try to heat the shoulder in hot water
and try to remove it again.

Thanks again.
