    Long story short - Recently I bought figma Hatsune Miku to add her to my collection, but when I opened the box i realised that the joint on her right leg is broken and the whole leg is constantly falling off. I couldn't find a replacement for that particular joint anywhere. I hope someone will be able to help me here.

    Hi, is that the hip or the knee joint?
    Also, to help assessing the damage and devising a solution, I suggest that you provide a few pictures of the issue.

    It's a hip joint. I even have the picture but I'm new here and I don't know how to add pictures to a thread.

    Just sharing a link from imgur or any other picture hosting site is fine too.

    Thanks for the pictures, from what I see, I think that you can probably attempt a fix by heating the plastic and pinching the joint it so that it wraps around the pelvis ball more tightly.
    Here's a tutorial on how to heat the part: BLOG #32592

    That said, I'm afraid that the reason that she's coming apart so easily is not so much because of damage but rather because she may be a bootleg. I also own Figma Miku #200 and I took her leg apart to compare with your pictures. On yours the part that hosts the peg is black while on mine it is flesh colored (as seen here under the thigh piece after I pulled it up imgur.com/C6eL5...). If she's another version then she might be legit but if she's indeed labeled as Figma #200 then this is not a good sign. I suggest that you compare yours with the known bootleg pictures on the item page ITEM #144335 to assess whether or not that is the case.
    Sorry if I bring bad news...
