I got super glue into an elbow joint, and I can't get it to break loose, I tried using my exacto knife, and I've tried using boiling water, neither one worked, does anyone have any ideas/suggestions, on how to get the joint to break free without breaking the joint?

You're probably out of luck, super glue bonds parts chemically so they can't just be pulled apart without doing damage.

If you still can't get the joint to move after slicing with the knife, then the glue probably bonded together the rod with the figure. All you can do is try to break the rod free by heating the joint so it's flexible and then prying it out.

Good luck!
