Okay, so about a year ago, I got a Binchou-tan nendoroid and a Kyouka Midarezaki nendoroid. I tried switching the heads and bodies, but when I tried to take Kyouka's head out of Binchou-tan's body, the lower half of the neck snapped! I was going to try to fix it with glue, but I can't get the neck out of the body! I've tried taking it out, taking it out in oil, taking it out in cold water, and taking it out in hot water! Nothing seems to work. What should I do?

This is probably not the best way to go about it since it's brute force... but how about sticking a thin sharp object (such as a needle) deep into the neck pin and try pulling it out that way? That's what I did when the upper half of the neck for my Sebastian snapped and was stuck in his head.

A drill with a really thin point: with that now my Saber Lily is like new, but I had to change the broken joint (there's no way to fix it!). It's the only method you can use without causing any further damages! If you are not so able with it you can ask to someone to make it for you, even if you can do it by yourself (I have made it by my own!)!!!

But won't Binchou-tan's body break if I use a drill?

You shouldn't pull too much the drill in and you have to choose a really thin point (more little than the joint diameter). Anyway it wont break: nendos's bodies is made with soft materials so it don't make any resistence to the pressure into the hole for the joint (Sorry for the bad english ;_;).

So you're saying the head looks like this?
[ext link ]

if so, get a thin, flat-headed screwdriver, put it in and press outward to get it in (it's soft PVC, and it'll make more sense once you try it.) then turn backwards once you are in to pop it back up.

Do NOT try using tweasers. They don't work.

Ahhh i should have done that with a flat-head screwdriver x.x two of my Sebastian necks broke off, so i tried to super-glue them but now one of his head can't be fixed on properly ;_;

Same for my Len. I didn't know that I should have done that, and ended up super-gluing him permanently to his body.

Err... either that image is low quality, I'm blind, or it's not the same. The thing it that, you know on ball joints how there is a peg and a ball? The peg broke off the ball and is stuck in Binchou-tan's body, and the ball is stuck in Kyoka's head. The ball isn't a horrible problem, but the peg is. Sorry if I either mis-understood, or I am confusing.
Oh, I wish I had knew the thing about tweasers before....

The way I fixed this issue when my sister broke off the hand joint in a Kairi figure...

I took a safety pin and heated it up with a flame (I used an extended lighter) and then slowly but firmly pressed into it. Waited about 30 seconds for the needle and melted part around the needle to cool, and just yanked it out. The good part about this is there is almost no real way to damage any other part of the broken joint (for later repair) and it doesn't warp it or anything since you're simply dipping into it. (This also means that it can be reused)

So... this won't hurt Binchou-tan, and it will get Kyoka's neck out?

Unless you outright skewer the figure, no, generally due to the pressure already on the piece, you won't be able to stick the pin very far anyway. (However looking closely at Nendo joints you may want to be careful if you want to try to reuse the joint piece)

One of Feena's neck joints broke awhile ago and BRS' did today=__=
I used a drill and screw. Then I used a knife to pull it up a bit more. I almost had it, then it went back again. So I looked online and saw that if you put it in warm water, it will loosen the joint. And it worked!!

That happened to my Nendoroid too, so now I just glued the other part of the neck to the joint that is stuck on the body. Now the joint is stuck on the body forever. Since I didn't use enough glue, the neck falls off alot because the head of a nendoroid is kinda heavy. Now, her neck joint is glued back, but in the risk of her head falling off again, I now keep her in her box =3= (I got this nendoroid on eBay as used, so it might be alittle "too" used. ILoveWammyOkay, so about a year ago, I got a Binchou-tan nendoroid and a Kyouka Midarezaki nendoroid. I tried switching the heads and bodies, but when I tried to take Kyouka's head out of Binchou-tan's body, the lower half of the neck snapped! I was going to try to fix it with glue, but I can't get the neck out of the body! I've tried taking it out, taking it out in oil, taking it out in cold water, and taking it out in hot water!

Thank you so so so so much! I just tried this with my Nagato Yuki nendo and it works ridiculously well!!! I'm so impressed by how well this method works! It saved her!!! ;A; <3 Now I just need to figure out where to buy a neck joint replacement... >_<

It seems like the pin method mentioned earlier in this thread might be useful. I've never tried it, because I never thought of that before coming here!

The approach has been similar to the repair advice on getting a broken joint out of a Nendoroid body given by mikatan:
[ext link ]

I bought a small hand drill online with a set of mini drill bits (sizes #61-80, 0.991mm - 0.343mm). I drill a small hole into the center of the peg, although I stay aware of how deep I'm going. (It helps to know the length of the peg.) I use a paper clip, sanded a little with rough sandpaper, just to give me for glue to hold onto. I use cyanoacrylate glue ("superglue") to glue it into the peg -- carefully, so as not to get glue on anything else. Then I pull it out with small pliers. It can help to twist as I'm turning.

I like to repair my joints without destroying their mobility. (I was motivated by colored joints, such as Nendoroid Ryuk's neck and Miku's ponytail joint, which couldn't just be swapped with anybody's joint.) When it's a broken peg from a joint I drill a little off to the side so I can match it up to its broken counterpart. I drill into that, careful to only drill into the part that the broken piece should be attached to. Then I use my pliers/cutters to cut the paperclip to the length of my hole, I put it in, make sure it fits together, and then I take it out, add some glue, and glue them together. The paperclip is sort of like a post inside that gives some strength to the broken part of the joint. You could do this with the peg, too. Once you get it out and have it glued to the end of a paperclip, you could drill into its counterpart and put it together.

Thanks for the method. I'll try it. Now my harlan joint neck nendoroid is also broken and stuck. I'll find a way to pull it from its hole....
