What type of paint could I use to touch up my Hannibal Lecter? The paint on his mask is specked and not even covering all of the mask.

I know it's been a long time since this was posted but since I've recently discovered at least a partial solution to the problem I figured I'd post here...

Simple Box Restoration/Repair:

Open the top and bottom of the box and fold it flat, gently use a clothes iron (LOW HEAT/NO STEAM!!) to iron the box flat in the trouble spots. It won't fully take out the creases but it will restore the straight edges on the box and make any creases less apparent. It doesn't take much, a few seconds of pressure while keeping the iron moving should do. Oh and don't let the iron touch the plastic window directly, HUGE no-no.

Doing this allowed me to take a VERY crushed box (far worse than yours) and at least give it sharp corners so it could sit with the rest of my boxes without standing out like a sore thumb.

No problem! It's more of an ideal solution for "bent" boxes where it was compressed in to bending 'outward' rather than being dented 'inward', if that makes any sense. If there's no visible creases on the outside you can generally iron it to borderline mint condition (seriously, it makes the cardboard feel stiff and brand new).

An 'inward' bend/dent will almost always result in a crease on the outside of the box but you can at least iron the cardboard flat again so you only notice the crease when you're actually holding it.

Hope it helps some people :D

I bought a Heimdall today for my Marvel collection and I noticed his head is a little misshapen. Around the hole where the spring goes under his chin it looks a little warped. i can put pressure on it and push it back up but it eventually goes back down. What would be the best course to get it to stay properly?

The magic eraser method works great. Recently there was a sale at my local albertsons 2 boxes for $3 (4 sponges total) and I cleaned a few of the pops with scuff marks and it turned out great.

I've seen lot of people saying they stuff theirs with cotton balls. Personally I bend the spring with a couple of pliers. After one attempt gone wrong, I now use some sort of cloth (like a washcloth) to keep in between the pop and the pliers in case anything slips.

That one should be fine however you do it as I believe that's the color of the vinyl and not painted.

Anyone have a tip on what kind of glue to use on a chase sticker. I have a gremlin chase and the sticker has folded so much that it looks like a taco. What do people use to get there stickers to stay on?

I have gotten away with just using a little bit of superglue and just rubbing it around in a circle on the back of the sticker and it will never come back off again.

Have a Gold Helmet Loki, on his face there are some shiny clear looking marks, I believe his head is the flesh colored vinyl so no paint, would a magic eraser be best for this to get rid of them?

If it's a very smooth shiny mark I've found those are the texture of the vinyl itself and not a mark. Not sure that can gotten rid of. Maybe sanding but that would be tricky.

Just thought I'd throw this out there. I've gotten a few Pops that had little spots missing color, or where colors bled a bit on a part it shouldn't have. I had a pack of ultra fine point Sharpie markers. A variety of colors. It has worked really really well for me.

Sounds like a great idea. Personally, I would only venture to do it if the color in question were black. Too much minor variability in colors for me to comfortably "touch up" a Pop with standard Sharpies.

Hey guys, I'm looking at maybe purchasing the Headless Ned below at a really good price. The box is pretty beat up, but I'm not terribly worried about that as I can replace it. What I am concerned about is where it looks like the neck plug is sticking way out and didn't get pushed all the way in. Am I just crazy and seeing things or does this look like an issue? If it is, is it fixable, and how hard would that be for a noob that's never done anything like that to a Pop before? I'm sure to a lot of people this wouldn't even be an issue, but I know I'm the type of person that if I bought it, it would bother me to the point I'd eventually want to try to fix it, and I'm worried I'd ruin it somehow. If it was a $10 Pop, I wouldn't be worried about it and would just give it a try and live with the results, but even though I;d be getting a good deal its still quite a bit of money lol...Thanks!

I've tried removing scuff marks and paint with both the magic eraser and nail polish remover, but with no success. I slightly wet the magic eraser and rubbed, to no avail. The nail polish remover bottle said it contained acetone, but it didn't seem to affect the pop at all, much less strip the paint. I have a bit of sloppy paint work on a custom I've been working on but I need to know how to remove paint from pops.

Good luck! I find using a burnt sienna or peach color with white, red and blue added as needed works well. I'd maybe test it on the back if the neck or base of head to make sure it's the right color before applying it to somewhere more conspicuous.

Thanks for this tip... I have a Bernadette pop that part of her skin needs "patching"

Jeggy wrote:Fixing a bent spring for the bobbles.

Fixing the spring if the head is tilted is actually easy. I just fixed one for the first time this past weekend and I did it in a few minutes.

The head unscrews very easily and it is actually the spring that is coming off from the body. If you have difficulties make sure the little bend at the tip of the spring isn't carving it's way into the stem. Simply push that part with your finger or move with needle nose pliers. Once it is unsnagged it will come off with ease.

Now as for getting the spring out the head. It helps greatly if you have needle nose pliers, your fingers work too but it might prove to be very difficult. Any who simpley find the bent tip of the spring and push that counter clockwise. The tip will be the part of the spring furthest up the head. This basically loosens the spring, and should now be able to just twist out.

Take a look at the spring and look for where the bend in the rings is. I do this by looking at the spring as perfectly straight as I can and look for the ring in the spring that is causing it to not look straight. Use the needle nose to pinch that ring, and slowly bend in the opposite direction until it looks as if the spring has straightened.

Putting the spring back on is the easiest part. First twist the spring on the neck of the body. Remember the skinny part goes on the neck. Next twist on the head making sure to that you apply it straight. The direction it is facing doesn't matter. Next twist the head until you reach the desired bobble. The head does not get twisted all the way as it will not bob and the head will look very close to the body if you do so.

That's it.

What about Groot mystery mini, a few months ago I put him in my pocket now his springs are exposed.

Some sort of epoxy might work better, if superglue won't do the trick. If epoxy scares you, Gorilla Glue has great hold.

I've got a couple:

I recently picked up the clear Predator only to find that his neck peg is bent so his head is leaning to his left shoulder. I have experience fixing Marvel Legends by heating/boiling but am unsure if the clear plastic used for Pops will respond to this without breaking.

Also, I have a Joker whose head seems to be fused or glued in place. Can't get any movement at all. Normally, I'd freeze a figure with this type of problem. Is that the best option for Pops?

Thanks

I have a Tinkerbell glitter HT exclusive and it looks like her ankles are bent forward at an extreme angle, like 45 degrees. If I put her feet flat to the ground it looks like she's staring at the ground. Since her feet have glitter I am timid on what to do to straighten her out. Any thoughts, let me know please!

I have a problem with my Loki Pop :(

When I first took it out the box, it couldn't stand and kept falling over. So I googled a repair for it and I found that twisting the head at least one full twist should do the trick. It did. But now Loki looks like he's looking down, kinda sad Loki. How do I put him back to his normal head angle? It couldn't be twisted back, and I'm also scared to remove the head entirely because I might not be able to put him back to one piece.

Halp :(

Use a pair of pliers to turn it back the other way. The spring has a hook in the end that pushes against the plastic-you need to essentially lift the end of that hook up very slightly so it doesn't catch.
