I just got this Sting figure the other day, and while checking it out to see if it had any of Mattel's usual QC gaffes, I found that one of the hands had been stretched and bent by the plastic casing. I kept the receipt and the box in case I needed to exchange it, but are there any simple fixes for this?

Also, General for these sorts of problems.

Heat the joint with a hair dryer and bend it back into place. Optional: clamp it together as it cools, or put the figure in the freezer afterwards.

I have tried that before with other toys and the bendy part always went back.
It never stayed unbent.... not sure what to do

hair dryer won't work on the PA (assumption) being used for the joint here. You'd have to heat gun it with clamps consistently, freezing will just make it more brittle since it doesn't allow it to cool properly. The problem with clamps here is that they're most likely wreck the pvc surroundings, especially at the higher temps

because you have to actually heat it enough to warp it, not just bend it. this doesn't necessarily mean a higher temp but constant yeat treating. This wilo be much harder n PVC stuff, though

jesus fuck i hate how mobile devices just cut out words sometimes, fixed last sentence

I dug up my Star Wars action figures today and found that stupid childhood me had pulled apart my Aayla Secura figure at the waist. I can't seem to get it back together. The peg is larger than the hole so I can't manage to just push it back in. I tried running it under hot water but that didn't help either. What should I do?
>>
>>5385809
hair dry

Thanks. I ended up getting it to work by using a hair dryer on the hole and running the peg under cold water

Fix it by giving him new hands that are actually gloves
