Play Arts Kai Batman Shoulder Fix

Hey MaruFans! Today I bring you a short update on fixing a Play Arts Kai Batman shoulder peg. Basically you can see in the photos that it broke at a really awful spot. Well, I thought about this for a bit and I figured out a really solid way to fix this issue… and you can use minimal tools. Basically I drilled through the peg from the bottom and inserted a nail snuggly through the peg. I then cut the nail shorter and drilled two holes in the shoulder cavity to house the tow ends of the nail. I heated up the shoulder cavity and inserted the nail ends into the two holes. Done and done. Batman can now swing with his left and knock out crime once again. The photos below will walk you through the process.

    Thank God I found this post! Same problem here with my Kratos figure. He has a broken pin in the left arm, HEEEEELP!

    Great post! I actually did this myself awhile ago. I did a sloppy version though, used the thick paper clip instead of nails- a little loose but it got the job done. Pics look like it came out very clean!
