Was just going go suggest this. At least you'll have a fully working hand for your Cheetor.

Re: Masterpiece Cheetor right thumb broken :(

I've repaired a super fragile Studio Halfeye figure with epoxy before. It works.

I wonder if this stuff can work on a cracked ball joint socket? My Encore Big Convoy has a crack at the socket where half the mammoth head is supposed to attach to a ball joint on his shoulder. It will no longer stay on, and superglue didn?t work

A pic of it's breakage.. I read posts about him breakin in certain other parts before but never the thumb. If I had to guess, it's probably because I most likely put the gut blaster in his hand the wrong way and that really stressed it over time.


If anything I guess it isn't as hard to have him hold the gun anymore...but this really sucks. He's one of the few MPs I have and one of my favorites


So I post about this here to ask, how can I fix him? Can I just superglue his thumb back on there? It broke off at the hinge though, so it'd restrict his in and out wrist articulation. If it worked anyway.


I'm all ears.

Sad for this news. Try to join it with the glue if it get fixed up in your home then you don't have to go anywhere or replace it.

I agree, repairing things at home can save time and money. Using glue for fixes is a great idea. It's a satisfying way to keep things functional and reduce waste.

Re: Masterpiece Cheetor right thumb broken :(

I’ve thought about using some glue but it’s directly gonna go into the pin in the hand as well and I’m afraid it’ll compromise the wrist articulation so I just didn’t even bother with it.

Re: Masterpiece Cheetor right thumb broken :(

What if you apply some lube to the part that goes around the pin to make sure it doesn't glue in place?
