1st Broken Nendoroid Joint

Finally after about 1 year & 2 months, I have received my 1st broken Nendoroid joint. The victim was, not too surprising, my 1st Nendoroid, Kureha.

The joint that broke was her neck joint. I was posing her normally until I noticed that her head was very loose, I checked it and the peg was broken, held only by the edge.

I was surprised at first but I did not despair, since I knew that I could fix it. This is exactly where modeling skills come in handy. (。・`ω´・。)

I took the broken peg & the joint out, then I replaced the joint with 1 of the ones from her other face parts. And here we have Kureha “fixed” & beautifully standing again. ^^

If you own a Nendoroid, have you had a broken joint yet? How long have you had the Nendoroid until it broke, and what did you do about it?
Update: I had my 2nd broken Nendo joint about 3 months after this post.

    I just received my first ever nendoroid and the neck joint broke straight away! :( I was wondering, how did you remove the broken parts from the neck and body? I’m finding them very hard to remove, as I can’t properly get a grip on them.

      I am very sorry to hear that!
      It’s hard to describe what I did by using words though.

      It was easy for me since I am used to it from building model kits. I would use a strong needle (one that doesn’t break), wedge it in between and try to “dig” it out.

      If all else fails, your last resort could be to heat up a needle, stab it in the middle of the peg, wait for it to cool, then pull it out.

        Thank you! I’ll give it a go. I’ve also emailed the store I bought it from and maybe they can help me with a replacement joint :)

      It’s very unlikely that they can provide you with a replacement joint. If you managed to take the broken peg out then using the other joints from the other face parts is my recommendation.
