    the leg on my masterpiece problem has fallen off, putting it back in place wasn't doing anything because when it went it the leg would comeback out again easily
    here's a picture:

    That leg is pretty heavy, I imagine it would take a lot more than super glue to fix it

    return it and get a not-broken one?

    you're pretty much screwed my friend.

    Super glue fixed mine when it had that problem, and it moves just fine. Just make sure you glue the part that inserts into the hip, and not the leg itself. As long as you only glue the tab that fits into the hip. the joint should still move like normal.

    It shoud be fine for normal use, I wouldn't suggest swinging around by his leg though.

    Well, I'd maybe disassemble his pelvis region a bit to try and find out where things went wrong, and how the other leg attaches. Are there any obvious break points? If not, then you're missing something. Take a look inside, see how the other leg works, and figure out from there if it's repairable or not.

    Given how expensive Masterpiece Optimi can be, it's worth at least a shot at fixing it. Just have a cup or container to keep all your screws in so you don't lose them.

    You probably don't even have to do that. Look in the hole where the leg attaches. There should be little tabs, kind of like teeth, running around it to hold the leg in. Are one or more of them broken?

    Try tightening the screw. That should cause the tabs to spread further out to better lock it in place.
