Zero Model Kit fix

Hey guys, I got the Zero Plastic Model kit from Japan yesterday, and all I can say is that it's fucking amazing. Bad thing is that I fucked it up, big time... since the kit is new I haven't seen any tutorials about it, so I did it myself.
Bad thing is that I bent one of the joints too bad that I broke it... and the worse thing is that I don't know any safe way to fix it aside from melding the joint completely, thus risking mobility.
The picture shows the shoulder joint (a ball joint) completely torn and stuck to it's shoulder, the concave part, as in opossed to the other one that's safe.
One of my ideas was to insert a hot needle in the ball joint and then glue it to the other part, in hopes that it might work; but before doing it so I'd like to know if there's another solution to it. Another drawback is that I can't take that ball joint out of the concave shoulder because since its press-clicked all I could do was to cut the piece in half, remove it and glue it again.
Do you guys have any other ideas than that one? I am very new to model kits, but this one's for beginners..
The ultimate solution would be buying another one and leaving this one for spare parts, idk...
Thank you all if I ever get a reponse.

Hey /toy/. I'm sorry if you get these type of threads a lot but I was wondering if you guys could help me find the name of a Mighty Morphing Power Rangers Megazord toy I owned when I was a kid. It was a black and gold dinosaur, with gold markings around the chest and a white head and tail. The back had a door that could be opened. I think it was motorized, when you pulled it back, it would go forward. Sorry for the vague description but that's all I can remember. I had the toy when I was about 5 so it was made before 1998 if that helps.
I also have another question. If there is any re-release or re-editions of any MMPR Megazords? I got back into the show recently and I want to get some of the toys I had as a child. Looking for a re-release or re-editions since originals cost between £60-£100 from what I've seen. Picture related is something I'm hoping has been re-released, It's a Deluxe Zeo Megazord. Cost £62 on ebay.
Is there any re-release of any MMPR zords that can be combined? I'm not finding much on Google.

So i rewatched flcl for the first time in a few years, and it was 100% different than the last time I watched it.
I'm in love with the series and would love to get ahold of a RIO:bone Canti.
Think it'd be neat to display with all of my bugmen, figmas and revolshits.
I know both versions are moderately hard to find, but here's my question:
What is the most YOU would pay for each version?
Is one version harder to find than the other?
FLCL toy general, i guess for all the three toys in existance.
(also, this belongs on /a/, but why does everyone hate the fanbase? Is it because of xXNevar No's Bust 420Xx or what?

Anyone else spot the 3.75" NECA Gears figures?
Pretty typical of NECA, good detail but just a touch sloppy. The sloppiness is amplified by the small size.
Acceptable articulation, but no bicep swivel or any kind of ankle articulation limits what you can do. Hips are kind of cool, they're hinges attached to both the body and thigh by swivels. Wrist hinges are appreciated, and there's just a touch of lean to waistline that's limited by the bulky armor.
Marcus weighs in at just about 4", but with all the bulk on the characters I think an extra quarter-inch would have really helped these guys fit in with other 3.75" / 1:18 figures.
Just doesn't feel like the right size, like he's a giant dwarf or a very /fit/ manlet.
