Headless PBP Luke X-Wing Pilot - what to do???? Empty Headless PBP Luke X-Wing Pilot - what to do????

Post by ChristianC on Tue Jun 18, 2019 8:26 am

Hey dudes, so I dropped this little fella during my house move last week and his noggin fell off. I wouldn't mind so much but this is a relatively expensive variant. I don't want to glue his head back on because I feel this is tampering a bit with its authenticity.

What do you guys reckon I should do?

Thanks!

I don't know if there is much you can do.  Maybe use a bit of Reusable Adhesive Putty, just to hold the head in place.  I think you can get it in blue or white.
I have some blue putty here, that I can send you.  But you can get it at most business supply stores or on Amazon.

Good idea thanks Clint, I'll grab something here. Best to use something that can be easily detached so no-one can be fooled by a glued on head somewhere down the track....

It won't be permanent, but it should hold the head in place. You'll only need a tiny piece. I can send you some in the next package if you can't find it there.
