Hey everyone. I’m new. I received my sad forky from toy story today, but the youngin got to the postage box, gave it a decent shake.

Not much damage really but window box scratches, so I was curious if anyone’s got a window trick. I was thinking windex would do the best.

I’ve used magic eraser on a window in the past. But only to remove a small splash of mud, the eraser was wet, and I rubbed so softly, took ages.

Anyway, after thinking, I don’t think the eraser would fix window scratches that go into the plastic.

Anyone got a tip, or used a eraser till they made a hole in the window?

If it's scratches, I've found that gently rubbing a cotton ball with some nail polish remover on the scratch helps. That's also a good fix for a scratched watch face, funnily enough. Just be careful so you don't rub a hole into the plastic.

Wouldn't that also get rid of the color though?

That's a very hard task to do bc of the carton peeling off from the glued screen.

Thanks mags. Will give it a go. And swear to not hold you responsible if I make it looks worse, heh.

I’ve done it before, it can be tedious, and some of the heads on the box don’t match up right, you’d want the use of one that the front head picture (on box) is smaller than the one you want the window on.

Little bit of pva glue worked fine for me. But I’ll repeat it can be tedious. Take your time and be careful.

If it’s looking good, but may need some drying, placing the pop and it’s plastic cover back in will push the window slightly.

Use the least amount of glue possible, when it presses against where you want it to go, sometimes it may press out onto the part of the box window showing. If that’s the case, no window is my solution, with soft pop protector.

I’m never fussed with what the inside looks like once done, so I use the glue as far away from the part of the box window that will show.

It can be done, and I’m sure after a few goes you’ll master it.

I recently traded my Brook from One Piece proto I got from Fundays for a Baskin Robins exclusive Steve proto. He sadly doesn't stand on his own but that's not something a little hot water can't fix!

My POP has a bent sword, arm, foot, etc. (also works for Legacy figures with stuck joints)
For something thin like a sword, run it under a hair dryer until the vinyl is flexible. Hold it straight until it cools. For something thicker like a foot or arm, boiling it in water will make the vinyl soft enough to bend and reshape. Careful, it can get mighty hot!
My POP is too top heavy and keeps falling over
Museum Putty is great for anchoring top heavy POPs

I have a starters paint kit that’s been lying around for ages. Games Workshop I think.

I used this on a few to make some customs, Ol Man Vault Gramps. Went over his blue suit with a flesh red, gold chrome shoes and a grey base went well over black hair.

I used old dye on fake Vegeta ssgss, got some cool effects with purple dye and his blue hair. Hard to work with though.

If you’d match the colour with something from GW I think it would be a great touch up paint.

Eucalyptus oil and some cotton buds done well getting the grime from a price sticker slapped right in the middle of the window....... think the employee was a tad edgy it wasn’t his pay day, and he didn’t see the chase (music to my ears..) ...... needed a brand new surgical scalpel to get the peeling started.

Whoever put it there either used price stickers with Tarzan’s grip as the adhesive, or pushed as hard as they could for a while, lucky it wasn’t too hard to do any window damage.

The stickers on my NYCC Black Hole Vincent and Maximillian are starting to peel off slightly. These are the only Pops I have ever had that have done this, so I am not sure what kind of glue or adhesive to use - if anyone else has had this issue, what did you use?
Pops I want Funko to make:

Taylor Swift, Q from Impractical Jokers, Danger Mouse

It's probably just a bit of plastic left over from the manufacturing process.

Try gentle cotton wool, or cotton buds, with eucalyptus oil.

If that doesn’t work there’s probably a permanent marker remover designed just for it.

Gee you gotta be careful with those windows. Otherwise you end up with scratches everywhere.

But I have been informed earlier in this thread that cotyonnwool and nail polish remover, I’m still too scared to try such a strong chem.

If you use a very small amount of nail polish remover and are gentle with the cotton ball, you'll be fine.

Have you tried a magic eraser? Luckily enough that's on the base color of the pop so you don't need to worry about accidentally taking paint off.
