    If it's a part that needs to be moved frequently and/or has to support a lot of weight, there's really no glue capable of keeping the parts intact. You would either need to reinforce it or replace the part altogether.

    Gotta disagree.

    Superglue but apply it properly. Do not squeeze the part tight and do not gob the glue on. A little dab is better (it's the way the glue chemically bonds, this creates the strongest bond). After 24 hours you can apply an outer, tiny thin coat around the area. wait 24 hours and sand it. Submersing it in water after adding the glue will also cause it to cure almost immediatly.

    Not to make it sounds as though you don't know what you're talking about but...I'm speaking from experience since I customize and am always using superglue and sculpting putty to attach parts. No matter how strong the bond is, if it's a part that has to be frequently moved for posing/transformation and if it's a part that has to support the bulk of the figure's weight, chances are it won't hold as well as you'd like. You need to reinforce the existing part somehow.

    The figure is still on shelves, I would just exchange it for another one.
