help with 18' spider-man

Posted in Custom Workstation

I've been working on an 18" Giant-man using the Toy Biz 18" movie spider-man as a base but I've run into a problem. The ratchet joint on the right leg snapped where it attached to the swivel inside the ball joint and I don't know how to repair it. I've tried super-glue and AVES apoxie but they both keep snapping due to the tension from the ratchet joint. Any suggestion on how to fix this would be greatly appreciated.

I'll try that and report back. Thanks for the tip.

I would drill a whole in both pieces at the point where they connect and insert a screw with the head ground off and ground to a point so that you can screw it into both pieces. I've done this before with 6 inch figures using much smaller screws and it seems to work pretty well. I also suggest that you glue the screw in so that it doesn't come undone.
