Is there any way to fix damage to a pop! box window?

Just be careful so you don't remove the paint!


Would you happen to know if this yellow's the window over time? The exposure to chemicals?

It shouldn't. Usually plastic yellows over time due to sun exposure.

Gotcha. That makes sense. Thank you.
I know some glue can turn yellow over time too so I wondered if this could potentially have the same affect. But I think it's safe :)

My SDCC Toucan broke apart at his torso when I -gasp- took him OOB :( What would be the best glue to use to put him back together?

E6000 or Gorilla Glue. Glue the pop back together and then make sure it's propped together in such a way that it doesn't shift and allow the glue to bond for at least 24 hours. I recommend putting the pop back in the plastic insert and then propping it up so the glue doesn't accidentally bind it to the insert.

Hello everyone! So I just read through several pages and also searched some but wanted to see if anyone else had success with removing scratches from the display window. I saw someone post a video using Pristine which seemed to work well but I could not find it here in the US. I also saw someone mention cotton ball and nail polish remover. What do you use?

Following this. I’ve heard about the nail polish remover, but it just freaks me out a bit. One drop could mangle a box (I would think). TBH: I thought scratches were sort of permanent, unless you could literally fill them in.

Same here, I never thought about it until I saw the video using Pristine here in the forums somewhere. It was like magic!
