Need HELP (gluing parts?): ODM Gear MEDICOM RAH Attack on TitanNeed HELP (gluing parts?): ODM Gear MEDICOM RAH Attack on TitanAsk MFC

Hi community!

Looking to see if this ODM gear from my Mikasa RAH (Attack on Titan) is broken or is there away to put them back together?

Here’s the link to photos—

If gluing back is an option (may be for sure lol) then what is “THE BEST” glue to use for this kind of problem?

I have been using the wrong one for a looong time and don’t really have a good experience gluing broken toy parts together. I also have a Play Arts from FF12 that I want ro glue back on (expecting that articulation may be affected) Any advice?


Thanks so much for your responses!

If it's part of an articulated piece superglue alone is rarely enough. If possible, you'll need to pin and glue it most likely (see this blog for example BLOG #34675 or google search pin and glue action figures).

I've recently seen online methods involving tiny magnets for non-articulated repairs (which might be the ODM gear issue, I can't tell from the picture). Basically making space and gluing in a tiny magnet to both broken pieces. But it depends on the size of the piece or the issue with what broke... Never tried it myself but it seems like a cool solution for some things.

With gluing, it can come down to more to technique than the glue used. Superglue and 2-part epoxy are usually the two main ones used.

First thing is ensure the parts you're trying to glue are clean. If the surfaces are a dusty/greasy the glue can fail to adhere. Next, don't apply too much. I usually use a pointy stick to apply glue to the surface I want. Helps stop getting glue where it doesn't belong. Superglue can damage paint, so you don't want to get it on any visible surface. Next is patience - chances are you're going to have to sit there for 2-5 minutes holding the part waiting for the glue to set.

Another thing is it's usually a waste of time trying to glue articulated joints - some people try to glue joint parts together but these can undergo a fair amount of force when moving the figure about, which will cause the glue to snap. Epoxy may give more longevity to the repair, but joint parts may need a replacement part.

kyoshinhei8 mese/i fa#73863837I recommend Loctite liquid superglue (not gel) for most figure repairs. Just be careful not to put too much or it could seep in the joint and block them.
