What is the exact kind of plastic minis are made from ? PVC ?
I'm asking to chose the best possible glue to mend broken parts...

The miniatures are made of PVC. If you have a figure where one of the joints has come apart, Super Glue (cyanoacrylate) should do the job. Just make sure you scrape away any old glue from the mating surfaces before you re-glue it.

true story: a personal friend of Sandy's (and a backer) works at Dow chemical, and he actually analyzed the material. The factory says it is PVC, but according to chemical analysis:

1% PVC
37% unassigned (stem) cells [shoggoth?]
62% a particular mineral only found on Pluto
48% ...essential...salts

There's no telling what the plasticiser will do to you if that's the case. Maybe we should be playing the game wearing surgical gloves...

Hey, you're not fooling me - those add up to more than 100%!!! What are you trying to hide with these figures?
