    I had just finished repainting OP (my girlfriend gave it to me for Christmas), when I noticed that the shoulder joint has a small crack when you apply pressure on it (every time you rotate the arms).

    Pls look at the ff. pics...

    What do you guys think? Will supergluing it work? Or should I try something like epoxy?

    Your pictures suck (verily), but JB Weld may help you.

    Well, it suddenly snapped.. see picture below

    Is it still fixable? I think that just using some sort of epoxy/cement wouldn't be so smart because it will glue the pin too.

    Unless, there's some way I can pull the pin out, glue the joint, then push the pin back in. Any suggestions how I can do that?

    I see.... that original Power Rangers Megazord?

    Really no way to tell if it's still fixable without being able to tell what we're looking at :-/

    Check around for how to take the pin out, then glue the broken part back on. You may want to sand some of the remaining glue off

    I'd epoxy it if it were me. JB weld is just as good too. I just like the way epoxy turns out and its sandability.

    Thanks, Limewire! Yep that's the part that got broken. It was difficult removing the pin because it only has one "end" (I hope you get what I'm saying), so I couldnt do the nail and hammer trick. I basically heated it then pulled it out with pliers.

    I just bought some 2-part epoxy. I hope it turns out well *crosses fingers*
