Dorbz “Sweating”

Postby CaseyJones14 » Wed Sep 07, 2022 10:28 pm

So I’ve read threads on here (and maybe made one) about vinyl sweat when it pertains to Spastiks, but I’ve noticed lots of my Dorbz have a substance on them as well. It’s mainly the early runs like Spider-Man and some of the DC Dorbz, but they look dusty/dirty. It’s easily wiped off, but it’s weird. It’s not actually dust, but a thin film of some sort.

Sorry for rambling, but wanted to see if this has happened to anyone else lol

Could be diet or exercise related.

I hear it's contagious so if your Dorbz are close to your Pops, it's only a matter of time. :eek: lol

A couple months ago, I noticed my Jimmy Hendrix Funko Force also developed the sweats.

Haven’t really noticed - as I just take out mine if I will take some snaps - and is returning them back to their packages.

Will try to observe more vigilantly next time. :)

So pops will eventually have this issue too? Or does it just depend on the quality of vinyl?

Sweat does tend to lead to funky smells.

:freddy4: Same here. I've seen this occur on a few vinyl items, mostly Kidrobot, back in the day. I've found many Funko products have a white dusty film or something like that at points of articulation or crease, but it also wipes off pretty easily. None of mine are sweatin to the oldies yet though!

If anything, I've seen a few wacky wobblers from the early to mid-wobbler days, out of box, in my offices at work that have a sticky exterior now, I assume do to age/dust breaking down the plastic.....kinda gross and sad

I've had some of my older pops do this. Ones from 2012-2013 specifically. Might be quality of vinyl maybe?
