My Jay's Eye Palantir mod broke in half. I'm trying to 2 part epoxy back together. Anyone have any luck putting one of these back together? Or does anyone have one of these for sale?

I'm having a lighting  issue after I added the four figures to my LOTR POTD. I added a 5 volt led to each figure with a restrictor on a positive / common side. I made a Y plug and wired them off of the five wires going to the common and 1 2 3 4 POTD lights. After doing that I am getting a bleed into other lights including the O R C lights. I'm guessing I need to add a 1N4004 diode to the individual line / negative the side of the lights.  Attached is my rough drawing. Everywhere I think I need to put the diode I marked with an arrow.  So here are my questions. Will diodes solve my problem?  If so, am I placing the diode on the correct wires? Do I have the diode facing the correct direction? Can I put a diode  in a wire  line or do I have to use some type of board?  Can I put the diode down the line from the light? (Since I already have the lights glued in the figures and the wires in shrink tubing it would be a lot better for me if I could put the diodes near the plug and not near the lights. See photos.) Thanks for your help. I'm just an amateur at this but I'm trying to do it for 10 bucks or less.  Am I screwing anything else up here?

Thanks great link. Shows exactly what I needed for adding the diodes. I think I'll place my mine in line and not the Z plug. And yes it is homemade.

I finally added the four figures to my LOTR POTD and got them at working with the corresponding lights. My cost was under $100.  $60 for the figures, $32 for the plastic with posts and bolts from pinbits, $5 for the green LEDs with resistors inline off of eBay, and miscellaneous wires, plugs z connectors, and diodes. (You could knock $25 off of that if you had some PETG or acrylic plastic and cut your own plastic.)   I added a 5 volt led inside each figure with a restrictor and a diode on a positive side. I made a Y plug and wired them off of the five wires going to the common and 1 2 3 4 POTD lights. The 1 2 3 4  POTD yellow wires go to the positive side of the LED.  The one common wire goes to the negative side of each LED.  (Took me three times to get the darn thing wired right. See my prior post above.)  Attached is a wiring diagram of how I ran the wires. After the wires were in place I put them in green  shrink tubing. I ran the wires down the posts and underneath the POTD and out through the hole for the POTD wires.  I also attached a couple of pictures with the lights on and the lights off. Finally because these figures come 3 in a pack, I have two left over that I'll sell to anybody for $15 each plus shipping.
