My kaito figma is brokenMy kaito figma is broken

PoyofigPoyofig1 maand(en) geledenAsk MFC
So I got him Christmas 2017 and right when I opened it and turned the head, it fell off. Like the joint broke as if it melted. I got the peg out of the neck hole, but there is a lot of damage to the joint making it unusable/unfixable. What should I do? I don’t know where to get a replacement joint.

Haha, glad you're so excited! I actually watched/read/saw a number of Akio's work long before I ever even knew who he was, but when the original fan translation for Grisaia no Kajitsu came out I immediately fell in love with their work. They designed most of the characters for that series, and since I absolutely loved the VN to death my love for their work sprang up almost immediately. If you look at my collection I actually have a mountain of goods for one of his characters in particular (Michiru). Can't get enough of Akio's art style, so it was pretty awesome finding out just how prevalent their work is in the otaku industry.
Also, since I saw it mentioned on your profile as well, I absolutely adore BRS too. The artistic work Huke gave that series is unbelievable.

Xardej (1 maand(en) geleden) #66286791As someone already pointed out, if you have a collection of Figma you could just look through the ones that come with extra heads and use the joint from that. Most Figma joints are the same size so you should be fine mixing and matching. It's only an issue if you try taking a joint from, say, Berserker Guts, and then try to plug it into Shinobu.
As for trying out the joints from the Premium Parts Collection I can personally vouch for their quality. I use them in my custom builds all the time. Solid, large variety, and some are the same shape as what Figma uses. So if you don't have extra Figma joints to mix and match then they might be worth a shot.
Something like this www.1999.co.jp/...
Their entire collection of joints last I checked www.1999.co.jp/...
You can pick them up there, Amiami, HLJ, and most of the other quality Japanese outlets. Cheap too.
(Unrelated, but three cheers for another Akio Watanabe fan!)

Poyofig (1 maand(en) geleden) #66275510I was thinking to get those because my brs’s hair was broken (I was an amateur)

Honestly they’re a Godsend. Highly recommend.

ZoidsFanatic2 (1 maand(en) geleden) #66275473There are spare joints you can buy that while are’t Figma joints do the trick. Same thing happened to my Kaban Figma.
Edit: They’re called the “Hobby Base Premium Parts Collection”. You’ll want the Ball Shaped Joints Slim.

Also, not just knees but elbow joints often do the trick too.

kyoshinhei (1 maand(en) geleden) #66272068Neck joints are usually similar on most Figmas and also the same as knee joints. If one of your figures has an extra head or a pair of extra legs you're not using, you could take a replacement from there. If not you can also look into buying any cheap broken Figma and salvage a joint from it.
Alternatively you could attempt a repair with this technique BLOG #30007. It's a bit tricky but sometimes it can succeed even with severely damaged parts.


Thanks that’s a pretty cool method
