    How to safely glue my PG Exia

    So I got the non-lighting PG Exia kit and aside from a shoulder joint snapping (Bluefin says replacement parts are on the way... hopefully) the dang thing wont stay together at the waist where the legs meet the torso. Right now I'm limited to posing it with its feet on the base because if I try to elevate it the legs will just fall away. Does anyone have a good, safe way to fuse the leg unit to the waist unit without damaging my kit? I'm fairly new to Gunpla (only built 4 kits in my life) and don't want to destroy my kit doing something stupid. Thanks in advance

    Can you post pics of the parts that are giving you trouble? That way we have a better idea of what your issue is.

    Not to sound like an a$$, but as I tell my drivers. Stupid question time. You did follow the EXACT directions right? It just sounds like you might have put something on wrong, or missed one small, but important part.

    Right now I'm at work, but I can post pics when I go home for lunch.

    I was looking at the directions. The 4 pegs that connect the lower half to the upper half. Could you add a drop of cement to each of those? This is not part of the waist so it should not effect the waist motion. But from what I see that is the only thing holding the two half's together. Also have you tried to see if maybe they need to be pushed in a tiny bit further? Sometimes you think that the part is seated correctly only to find out that it actually needs to be "Snapped" in place a bit more.

    I circled the part I'm talking about.

    I found better directions for the Exia for the non-lighted version. The main peg that holds the waist together. In the picture it looks like it has a small lip on it. So I would think that it would need to be pushed in further. It might even feel like it "clicks" into place. The directions do say to tightly fit together as far as they will go. so you might just need to "push" them further into the connection.

    I just saw this post of yours Gundammonkey and I think you hit the nail on the head. I grabbed my instructions too and checked it out; that piece was "clicking" into place, but I muscled it some more and heard that satisfying "SNAP." Here's a pic of the action pose, and you can see the broken arm too. Thanks everyone for the input, really appreciate it. 15191868504271324929661.jpg

    I know what you mean by "snap" but with me, when I hear that "Snap" it is usually followed by a long stream of cursing and head thumping on the nearest wall. LOL
    Glad to see it was a simple fix. A busted PG is not fun. I have two with missing or broken parts, still gives me nightmares.

    I totally understand. That happened to this guys shoulder when I tried to adjust it. $186 bucks and it's totally jacked up because of ONE part. Thanks again!

    No problem. I'm just happy to hear that you can at least get the part to fix it.The Exia is new and parts can be gotten, try getting a few parts to the PG ZETA or the PG GP01. Good luck! GRRRRRRRR!
