Hello, I'm new here so sorry if this has been asked a thousand times but I haven't seen it yet; where can I obtain the 1/12 scale pegs for hands and feet? I haven't even seen them on Ebay.

You're pretty much out of luck if you can't get them directly through 3A or cannibalizing some other 1/12 figure.  The only other suggestion I can think of aside from asking on the fb bst is to use Revoltech/figma joints.  I don't know if they'll work for sure; you might need to modify either the peg or the figure itself.

Ok cool. Thanks for the reply. I've tried Revoltech as well as S.H. figurearts and other various 1/12 scale figure pegs, nothing seems to work without modification. I guess chopping them a little shorter and maybe melting or adding a bead of glue to bulge the ends may be my only option. Thanks again.

Thanks for the figma tip btw. I wasnt aware of those. I looked them up and they do sell just the joints/pegs in large inexpensive quantaties. They look like they may do the trick but can anyone verify?

I don't like the Revoltech joints since that have that ratchet/clicky thing when you movie it and you won't get into a position that works.
Hobby Base makes ball joints that work. There are a few different ones. For the feet I think the 3A 1/12 are dumbbell shaped so you would need these (not 100% sure if these will work)...
Dumbbell

For the wrists You could try these two items.
Ball Joint
Wrist Joint

You might have to look for flesh color ones if you need them.

I used these and replaced all the joints on my Revoltech Alien fig and I can get it in any pose without that annoying ratchet system.
