Ray Fillet - What can I use to fix broken parts?

I have a 1990 Ray Fillet whose base that hold the leg joints has broken. What product have you used to fix broken parts?

Thanks

Hey,

you might want to consider adding some pictures. Helps people imagine the problem and find possible solutions to it

Are you talking about the white inner skeleton with the ball joints? I think Ray Fillet's is just a triangle with two ball joints.

If you're in the U.S. I can send you a replacement piece no charge. Are you comfortable taking your figure apart to do the switch though? You could try super glue as an alternative but you'll have to be extra careful while posing him.

I would just buy another loose Ray if you can.

He's cheap and it'll save you time.

I had a few figs from another line that broke like that. I used two screw in hook eyes with a rubber o ring to fix. Screw a eye into each leg. Then hook the ring in one eye. Slide it through the body. Attach it to the other eye. Makes the figure like a old He-Man figure. My other figs had solid legs. That is the only reason I can see it not working on turtles.

Thank you so much for your offer. I appreciate it. However, I don't think I am going to be able to put it. I think I am going to glue it and buy another Ray Fillet.

Thank you for your replies. I decided to glue it and buy another Ray Fillet. Do you know what kind of glue can I use? Which one do you recommend?Thanks.
