How do you repair an elbow pin?

Posted in Custom Workstation

I recently bought a Hush Harley Quinn action figure loose from ebay. When it arrived I found that it has a broken elbow pin in the left arm. Is there a tutorial on how to repair elbow pins. I've tried several different ideas I had but can't find anything that works.

Thanks
Clif

I was about to suggest the exact same thing.

I'd heat up the joint and remove the pin entirely, if it is well and truly broken then I'd replace it with a piece of wooden dowel. Really though anything you could find that's about the same size as the pin hole would do the job as long as it's strong enough. Then I would fill the end of the pin hole with sculpt, wait for it to dry, give it a good sanding then paint. You'd have to do the sculpt and paint stage on the other arm if you wanted to even it out. Hope that makes sense bud.
