Dorbz question

Postby Officerdorbz » Sat Aug 12, 2017 5:59 pm

Does anyone knows if the Dorbz soften up like the vinyl on the Pop! figures when submerged in boiling water? I want to fix the neck and head of one of my Dorbz since the piece that connects the head to the neck doesnt fit all the way in. any advice?

I'm not sure. But I do know my 3 year old niece managed to rip the head off my Batgirl dorbz when I had my back turned for a few minutes. So I would hazard a guess that it isn't too difficult to get the head off and that boiling water would probably work...or maybe she's some sort of ninja with decapitating abilities. Sorry I can't be more helpful.

If you're referring to the blue/grey Batgirl, that is the only one I've been able to decapitate. I think the head was simply made looser than others.

I believe Squird has a few customs that were head swaps that came out looking pretty damn good. Maybe he knows?

The BG that I decapitated had an excess piece of rubber on the neck, which I cut off with a knife after removing the head. The excess material was causing the head to be tilted.

Thanks for the information guys. I've never done any customs but it sounds pretty cool to tinker with the figures and come out the other side with something sweet.

I would say try it. There are a lot of Dorbz you can buy for cheap. Never hurts to buy cheap Dorbz to try it for yourself.

My wife takes the heads off of Dorbz for various reasons and does it with boiling water. Should pop off pretty easy.

I accidentally tore Joker's head off without even trying, so I'm going with a definite yes.
I buy the POPs I want, because I want them, and leave the ones I don't for others, and I suggest everyone else do the same.

Yes...the heads come off pretty easily when you stick them in water. Some are easier than others and there's always a chance you'll pull the back of the head off (which I've done on purpose and on accident).

The necks aren't always the same size, close, but not always. I did a Ghost Rider/Mickey swap and the Ghost Rider head falls right off the body. The others turned out okay.

I'd post pictures but I haven't moved them from Photof**kit. Oh wait....
