    It's actually quite easy!
    1. You need to remove broken peg from figures foot
    I suggest that you heat up a needle on under a lighter. 10 seconds are enuigh. And the fastly stick it IN the broken beg that is in the figure's foot (not in the actual figure!) About 3 milimiers deep is enuigh! Then dip the whole foot with the nidle in it into cold water. After that, try to gently wigle the peg out holding the nidle. Do not pul to fast or the needle will just go out from the peg. You need like a minute to whigle it out. When it's all out, just pull the nedle out with alot of force and glue the peg pack on it's place with really strog glue.

    It's definitely a scary thing when our lovely ladies seem to break, but this one is a surprisingly easy and painless fix! Depending on how big the broken peg is you can just use a pin vice to drill it out. After that drill a hole going through the base where the peg should be, stick a metal rod into the foot/base, and just use some super glue/cement/etc to hold it all in place. If you've never done anything like that before, don't worry. It sounds infinitely more scary and destructive than it actually is. Just take your time and you'll have it fixed in a jippy.

    His front peg broke and got stuck in his foot and now he's leaning. :(
    Following this post so I hope I will find an answer!

    You can use this fix too! It's a pretty universal fix that'll work in most situations.

    You should probably remove the peg in the foot. Use a pin vise to make a little hole, stick a needle or something similar inside with glue and pull it out. I would then suggest drilling/making the hole in the other piece on the base and using the needle as support between the two pieces while also adding glue to make them stick together. Superglue/cyanoacrylate obviously. Just a little bit though, be careful. The needle or metal rod if you want something thicker, will make sure it doesn't break again. Many don't seem to agree, but I usually use a different method too: heating up the needle (bright red) and sticking it in the plastic so that when it melts it stays stuck and you can pull the peg out that way, no drilling or glue, and also faster in my opinion...

    I've had the same problem. It seems to happen with the older figures. I use clear "Gorilla" glue. Just add a dab, hold in place for a few seconds and let dry.
    Good luck.
