I think it's being held on by glue on the fishnets.
Anybody else with this problem?

Not sure if I should try to glue it or secure a replacement.

I was able to get a better look at it; it looks like the thigh section had a peg that snapped off inside the knee.

The leg in question had a large foam pad wrapped around it. I almost think it was detrimental because it wedged that leg only so tightly in the styrofoam while the rest of the statue has some wiggle room.
Just wanted to add that I experienced the same problem. It's not easy gluing the lower leg back to the thigh, either.

I think D'ohboy is right that the foam pad actually creates pressure on the leg and causes it to break during transit.

This is too bad because the overall QC is otherwise excellent.

So...

The factory that manufactures Big Barda put a large foam pad where the left leg goes inside the Styrofoam brick. It places a lot of pressure on the leg, causing it to break.





If you remove the foam pad, you can see that the brick adequately supports the leg just fine (not too loose, not too tight).





I repaired my statue by wedging it upside down inside the brick while waiting for the glue to dry.
