Figma repair help please!

I was taking some photos of some of my new figures — including an epic figma — with Kagamiku — but in the middle of doing so, something tragic happened. ;A;

Poor Kagamiku's arm got broken! ;A;

For some stupid turn of events, I was trying to pose Kagamiku and suddenly, I didn’t notice that I was slightly twisting her arm in the wrong direction and her shoulder joint snapped off. It wasn’t a pretty sound and sight. I felt so bad I stopped taking the photos I was supposed to take and kept Kagamiku in her box again.

I am seriously unsure of how to repair her — my instincts tell me superglue/mighty bond/those strong glue things that stick anything together should help — but I’m unsure if it would still be the same with Kagamiku afterwards… TAT;

From what I read in Danny Choo’s blog — there are some replacement parts for figma over at Amazon Japan, but so far, I’ve only seen arms for Saber TAT; and in his blog about repairing his Kagamin’s twintails — seems like he had some DIY with a small screwdriver… I might attempt to do that to get the small bit out of Kagamiku’s arm so I can stick the joint back together properly — but then again, I’m not sure I can get her arm back to the joint normally if I did that.

I’m really out of ideas — any help would be much appreciated! TAT;
