Figma Megumin's shoulder joint got chewed up and other problemsFigma Megumin's shoulder joint got chewed up and other problems

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/01/17/2368223.jpeg

Things like these sometimes make me wanna quit the hobby. Thankfully, the thought is still heretical for me.

Anyway, I was took out my Megumin's shoulder joint to try and tighten it when I accidentally dropped it and a Dog thought it was some sort of small treat. Thankfully, I got the joint off of the Dog's mouth before it got hurt or something.

However, the joint was all chewed up and shit. Her torso was also loose to the point a small wiggle was enough to get the torso off the joint. I used some Loctite super glue to tighten the ball joint but I think I did something wrong as when I insert the ball joint, it holds on tight but the slightest movement gets the torso to pop off.

I tried Hobbybase joints but the joints were too big for me to use. Contacting Goodsmile isn't an option either as anything Japan ships to my country gets looked at and I've already lost a package from my country's shitty bureau of customs.

Anyway, the only solution I've thought for myself is juts getting a spare body and salvaging parts I could and make a custom "jacket" Megumin.

Help?

As someone else mentioned, the main solution may be able to find a cheap (i.e. incomplete, broken or whatever) figma to take the joint from to use for your Megumin.

But I just checked my Megumin thinking maybe the figma Styles swimsuit body could be a quick fix for you and the Megumin shoulder joints are smaller than the standard figma female shoulder so I'd recommend if you find a likely donor figma to ask someone people on MFC who own it about what the shoulder size is first before you buy it.

CreepyOldMan (1個月前) #74191469One of the thing that makes me quit collecting Figma asides from their absurd price and 50/50 QC is this here. Out of all the action figure line I had in my collection, Figma's is the one with second weakest joints with PAK being first(I can break them just by staring at them.)
Seriously, they should really start selling spare joints for their figures.
EDIT: This might Interest you, see if it helps. The funny thing is, the figure he is fixing here is Kazuma and Aqua LOL

Tried that method. Joints were too big for anything related to fitting. Pretty much gave up on the main Megumin body and salvaged the legs and hands. Luckily, my brothers and cousins are going to Japan on February so I might ask them if they can find me some loose figma bodies. There should be some on Akihabara or Mandarake. Or both lol.

Not looking for a spare Megumin body per se but I am gonna request to get me either a standard Figma school girl loli body or Mio Honda's jacket body. Gonna try to make me a custom "Kazuma" jacket Megumin.

GoodyHoody (1個月前) #74127945Already have. They were too big.
Plan B cheaper Alternative would be to cannibalize an archetype figma for the joints

Aww sorry that happened to your figma! There are spit groups that you can join on MFC, you can probably find a joint fairly easily that way. :)

Salvaging a shoulder joint from another Figma sounds like your best option indeed.
You probably don't need to find a Megumin though, any recent female Figma with bare shoulders should be a compatible donor.
