    Haha, chopsticks sound like a great substitute! I hope they serve you well and work better than the previous pegs :)

    That's an awesome fix, congrats! The result is fantastic!
    Coincidentally I did fix a broken peg myself today! ^_^
    In my case, it was ITEM #236417. The pegs in the water surface base for Black Odile broke for good today. I had fixed them a couple of times before by removing the broken pegs from her foot (using the same drill bit techniques you used) and gluing them back in the base. But this time, gluing was not working anymore, so I needed to replace the base pegs. However, since I didn't have brass rods in hands, I tried using some unused disposable chopsticks that were lying around here, instead! Crazy, huh? XD

    I know that they're not very resistant, but the good thing about disposable chopsticks is that you can carve and shape them as you want, easily. I used a knife to carve the chopsticks, so they got into the perfect size and shape to fit the peg holes in Odile's foot. Obviously, the base looks ugly with those pieces of wood sticking out, but since you can't see them once you put the figure on the base, I'm extremely satisfied with the final result. She used to lean a lot and now she's standing straight just the way she was supposed to, so I'm very happy with this accomplishment! ^_^

    I felt the same way, that’s why it took me 6 months to finally do it! All I can say is to do lots of research and take it slowly and carefully. It feels great once you finish. ^^

    Thanks for sharing! I'm glad you got to fix it! I have the same issue with ITEM #56604 but since the other pegs hold her just fine and sturdy I lack the motivation to do anything about it haha :)

    Thanks for sharing your experience in dealing with broken pegs. I am sure it will be useful.
    Learning figure repair techniques are part of the hobby for a true collector. Congrats.

    To avoid future broken pegs in figures caused due to gradual weight balance issues, I strategically stick, thin and strong double sided tapes between the base and foot of the figure which gives an even sturdier effect over a long time.

    Thank you, thank you! I'm proud of myself, but also so relieved it's over and hope I'll never have to do it again! XD
