Quick question before I start gluing, does anyone know if poly cement works on the SW figures??

It may seem like a silly question but I had a load of Super Dungeon Explore models fall apart as the plastic used in their figures doesn't like to work with the humbrol poly cement!!

Use CA superglue; ie loctite, zap-a-gap, etc

Plastic cement will not work.

I used zap-a-gap with no problems at all. I can also tell you that zap plastic CA definitely doesn't work on these miniatures.

You may also be able to use a standard PVC glue from a hardware store. It would be messy and I would make sure you are in a well ventilated area first though.

I used the medium viscosity Zap a gap (green bottle). Worked great.

Nope. It does the same thing as traditional model glue and this plastic doesn't react to it.
