Hey all just curious if anyone else has any issues with their 10” Thanos pop. At first he was fine and after displaying him for a few weeks his forefoot seemed to give way, now he leans forward and tips after a minute without support. Any ideas on how to correct this issue?

same exact thing happened with my Hot Topic Sombra bro, after a week or two her foot bent in a way that she just falls... even while on her stand! I found a solution though - putting her back in the damn box. ](*,) :mumum: :mumum:

I have a couple pops that seem to slip out of their insert, any idea on how to prevent these? No matter how much adjustment I do to my Billy from Saw, it keeps coming out of the insert in box.

Some would say yes, others no. It depends on what your plans are with the pop. If you are just displaying it, then whatever. But if you plan on reselling it after you've repaired it, that may be something you should disclose. But, everyone is different

Most definitely, if you made any type of repair to a pop, it should be disclosed if you ever sell that pop.

I think it all depends what you did to repair it. Magic eraser to clean a spot or dab of glue that lost its hold I say No. Make a new piece to replace a broken part or swap a part from another pop I say Yes. It really depends if just a simple minor repair while keeping the integrity of the pop the same or a big repair. Again everyone will have a different stance on this.

Agreed. And I'm an OOB collector for the most part, and I have had to make some interesting repairs. Lol.

I do agree if there is any damage and had to be repaired and you are selling it, it would be nice to know what was done at least people are aware.

I’ve never done it before, but I would suggest trying to use a hairdryer to heat up the glue holding them together. Don’t use anything crazy like a heat gun tho.



Most of the glue comes free if you soak it in almost boiling water for a minute or two. Have you tried that?


Has anyone tried any of these? I'm currently unboxing almost all of my SW pops and I've found some are stuck to their bases. I've actually used a knife to pry them up a few times, but I don't love doing that since I run the risk of harming the pop and myself!

If you're listening Funko, please don't glue them! It adds extra height and makes them harder to display.

Trust me. Try a hair dryer. It’s the perfect amount of heat and doesn’t get too hot. You have to be careful getting those bases too hot because they’re a harder plastic. If you use a heat gun or something really hot you could ruin it.

With one of my Marvel bobble head pops the head has come off the spring. That is I have just the head and the spring is still attached to the neck of the body. I have currently just got the head placed on the spring but if I touch it will move and fall over. Any advice how to fix it? Thanks

I would remove the window from another Pop box by peeling it off with an x-acto and then cleaning the glue off with rubbing alcohol or some solvent. Then I would do the same to the box that you want to repair, apply a thin film of glue to the good window and apply it onto the box you are repairing.

10” Porg
Has anyone had a problem and found a fix for the 10” Porg leaning forward?
I havent’t tried fixing it yet, wanted to check here first.
Are they legs and/or stand removable?

Thank you so much for this thread!! This just fixed more than half the issues I've had. We've been using double-sided tape for those heavy heads figures and it works for a while, but only a while. Totally gonna check out the putty options. Brilliant!

Yeah mine unfortunately did the same thing and finally fell out of the display case when I was doing some rearranging. She broke off her glowing stand and I can't seem to get it lined up right to where she isn't leaning too far forward. Think she might be a loss, but glad I can order another box if I can't get her right since I was a founder.

Has anyone found a solution to the leaning porg issue. My daughter's giant porg is leaning his head almost completely upward at this point lol. I'm not really sure what to do as I don't want to break the spring in the head/neck area. (He could go back in the box but we like him on the dresser.)

It’s so hot here in the U.K. right now (for us!) and my Pops are kept in the conservatory / playroom. It’s even hotter in there than usual and today I noticed the heads on the Pops were softening in the heat!!!! No misshaping occurred but if I squeezed hard enough there would have been! Anyone else experienced this before?? They cooled down and are good as new again but it was a bit of a shock!

Trust me. Try a hair dryer. It’s the perfect amount of heat and doesn’t get too hot. You have to be careful getting those bases too hot because they’re a harder plastic. If you use a heat gun or something really hot you could ruin it.


Yup i agree. Make sure to fan the blow dryer back and forth.


I’ll try that as boiling water didn’t work for me.


What’s the best way to get the new Star Wars pops off their bases? I’ve tried boiling water and a hairdryer but still can’t get her off

I have had similar problems to the Thanos with some of the ones like the Infinity Wars Iron Man. I had one that the stand started to break off right at the back shortly after I displayed it. I'm wondering with the Thanos if it's just that the thickness of the vinyl in that particular part of the foot isn't thick enough for long term display.
