    Is there anything I can do to put these back on ? There used to be a peg on the horns that would go into a slot in the head, but it has broken off.

    I was thinking of doing that but I fear the horns will be loose since theres a hole for where the pegs on the horns would go in.

    I've never had that figure. If the antenna does not provide any structural support what-so-ever, then an end-to-end glue connection could work. Otherwise, it would fail miserably without some additional support (i.e. drill tiny hole, use metal pin).

    I prefer 5 min epoxy (misnomer). You would only need very little but the smell and prep are very annoying. Super glue is a lot easier to use but the bond isn't as strong.

    Even then, end to end connections may fail if you don't prep the surfaces before hand. The idea is to increase surface area for the glue to stick to. You need to gently scuff the surfaces you plan on gluing. Sandpaper is usually used for this. Then you need to very carefully clean off all the sanded plastic particles before applying the adhesive.
