376 ratings | 23385 views
In this video I will show you how I remove scrapes and scratches off the plastic on Funko Pop Vinyl figure boxes as well as how I removed stickers from the box. Do you have any Funko Pop Vinyl boxes that have a ton of shelf wear on the plastic windows of your boxes? Then this is the video for you. I like to make the Funko Pop Vinyl Figures boxes look as nice as they can.

I have a question. I just bought a set of two Walking Dead figures. Not Funko Pops. There was a large paper inventory sticker on the front plastic panel of the box I got it off. Unfortunately in pieces but I got it off. It left a good deal of residue from the glue. I usually use Goo Gone to take it off. It's a citrus oil cleaner. This time though most of it came off there's a stubborn bit that just smears and refuses to completely come off. I can't press too hard or I'll damage the figures and I don't want the panel to look cloudy. What can I try that won't damage the plastic or the box? Thanks!

+Pop Fun To Play I'm sorry I thought I posted this yesterday. Yes I tried the goo gone again but with a cleaning rag instead of a paper towel. Cleared right up. Thanks. Later.
Pop Fun To Play (23 days ago)
nice happen you were able to clean up the plastic.
Jayme Scholtes (23 days ago)
+Pop Fun To Playthanks. I just tried the goo gone again but with the corner of a cleaning rag. Worked great. Later!
Pop Fun To Play (23 days ago)
I use rubbing alcohol, it deals with the glue better then goo gone in my oppinion.

How do you fix a scratch on the artwork of the box
Pop Fun To Play (3 months ago)
On the cardboard part I do not think that is possible
Benjamin M (3 months ago)
Hi, how do you restore dented/creased/battered plastic sheet on the toy boxes?
Pop Fun To Play (3 months ago)
I hear somewhere a little bit of heat can help minor dents, not sure about major ones though. I have not experimented with it yet.
Narciso Libre (3 months ago)
Awesome, but how can I remove those yellow stains in the box?
Pop Fun To Play (3 months ago)
If you mean on the cardboard itself, that I am not sure about. If its paint transfer to the window from a pops head rubbing on the plastic etc you can remove that from the box window with rubbing alcohol.
Justino Vargas (4 months ago)
Can we use this method to remove the paint from the pop that’s within the box ?
Pop Fun To Play (4 months ago)
On flocking though I am not sure what you can do without destroying the flocking.
Pop Fun To Play (4 months ago)
Oh yeah mean on the pop itself, what I use is a magic eraser if the mark is directly on the vinyl surface and not on the paint. If its glue residue, you can use rubbing alcohol carefully to remove it.
Justino Vargas (4 months ago)
Thanks dude, I jus received Flocked Ghost and I also see residue in between his eyes. It sucks because I paid over $100 for him only to have imperfections
Pop Fun To Play (4 months ago)
If you are talking about paint transfer such as when a nose or part of the pop leaves a trail of paint on the window? That comes off pretty easily with 90% rubbing alcohol.

Do you know how I can get minor creases off of a funko box especially on the back?
Pop Fun To Play (4 months ago)
Good I am happy to hear it worked a little.
ThugKnight (4 months ago)
Thanks it worked it gave it a smooth service but it still left that one semi long crease that won't just go after ironing. it's better then what it was.
Pop Fun To Play (5 months ago)
I think top pops did a video in which he iron his box a little.
Pop Fun To Play (5 months ago)
I suspect you can fix it up somewhat with an iron and some steam.

Dennis de Jong (5 months ago)
I keep them out of the box. Saving space
koolaiddude7685894 (3 months ago)
Dennis de Jong I know they dont mean much to you. But you should REALLLY consider selling your empty boxes...so many times I wish I could find people like you for specific pops lmao
Dennis de Jong (5 months ago)
Pop Fun To Play Oh I just throw them away xD I know some people use the boxes because it's easy to stack and display or to keep the value with some exclusive pops.. but for me the box is nothing but a piece of cardboard and plastic keeping me away from the real stuff😊
Pop Fun To Play (5 months ago)
They display well out of the box as well. You can probably trade or sell your boxes if you are getting rid of them for other pops.
Ned Ryerson (5 months ago)
Anyone know where I can buy new plastic sheets? Is that what they are called? Thanks a bunch!
Ned Ryerson (5 months ago)
It's a window that is glued from the inside. I've re-glued windows on maybe 4-5 boxes and removed the entire window first. All came out looking great using common household cement careful to follow old glue trails. They came out fantastic and would most certainly increase the value. I just want to replace the torn or damaged film on the others. Some are quite large and are very expensive dolls.
Pop Fun To Play (5 months ago)
Also not 100% sure if replacing the plastic helps the value or lowers it.
Pop Fun To Play (5 months ago)
Is it plastic wrap on the outside or the window plastic? I am not 100% sure I can help but I might be able to.
Ned Ryerson (5 months ago)
I have over 40 something dolls I bought from an estate sale and they're are 40's-80's. The plastic/vinyl/polymer film on the front of a majority are damaged on one way or the other. I want to remove the film and replace it. Thanks for your response.

I’ve been collecting toys for over 25yrs. The best residue and general cleaner that won’t leave a trace is Ronsonol Lighter fluid. It’s petroleum based and won’t leave a residue like goo gone. Action figure restorers and customizers use lighter fluid to remove card bubbles from the cards and reseal them later on.
Pop Fun To Play (6 months ago)
Nice I will have to give it a try. I hate goo gone its too messy .
Jared Vrabel (8 months ago)
do u know how to fix the window of a pop box if it has a dent in it
Pop Fun To Play (8 months ago)
Yeah its part of the problem with mail order you never know if they can ship something safely. Goodluck I hope you get a minty fresh one. Your welcome and thank you, I am happy you enjoy.
Jared Vrabel (8 months ago)
aw that stinks i will return it and get another one but thank u though love your channel
Pop Fun To Play (8 months ago)
That is a shame. If the plastic is good but its been detached from the box you can use an archival glue to glue it back to the side. If the plastic is self is dented and damaged there is not much you can do with that.
Jared Vrabel (8 months ago)
aw man i just got the friday exclusive black panther and it looked like it had been punched on each side
Pop Fun To Play (8 months ago)
Dented windows I think at that point they are damaged beyond repair.
Yara Brandao (10 months ago)
QUESTION PLEASE: how to remove the GLUE residue on the pops themselves? some have glue on their faces, etc. any ideas? thanks.
Pop Fun To Play (10 months ago)
Good luck, I hope you can clean her up pretty well.
Yara Brandao (10 months ago)
thank you soooo much for the tip! i read someone also saying heat it up with a blow dryer? i got so much glue on my WITCH POP that it is not even funny. a lot of glue on her nose, eyes, everywhere. i am almost buying a new one but here in brazil they are expensive, 50 US dollars each. thank you anyway.
Pop Fun To Play (10 months ago)
For very light glue on the vinyl and not the paint finisher I had some luck with a magic eraser. Rubbing alcohol sometimes works as well. If they glue is on top of paint, you might wear away the paint some. I would get a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol to see if you can dissolve and remove some of the glue.
James Arnold (10 months ago)
Hi have you any advice on dents on the pop boxes
James Arnold (10 months ago)
Pop Fun To Play ok, thanks for the reply 👍
Pop Fun To Play (10 months ago)
I feel there has to be a way to press them or iron them out similar to comic book pressing, but I have not experimented with that yet. Look up comic book pressing it may give you a few ideas.
Danny Berrios (10 months ago)
Anybody know how to get the crease of the box?
Pop Fun To Play (10 months ago)
Yeah that is what I am thinking too, I use to use an iron on dog eared pages in books I sold on amazon and it worked pretty well.
Danny Berrios (10 months ago)
Pop Fun To Play maybe with the ironer it'll be some Where to start, you can deffently avoid the plastic.
Pop Fun To Play (10 months ago)
Of course, I have a few of my sons beat up boxes that I will practice on when the time comes and I can afford the press etc. My biggest concern is how the plastic windows will react to the heat etc so it will be a lot of experimenting to figure it all out.
Danny Berrios (10 months ago)
Pop Fun To Play thank you Bro! Also by any chance if you do accomplish this you should make a video about it.
Pop Fun To Play (10 months ago)
There is probably a way to press the boxes similarly how people press comic books. It would involve a a dry mount press, a bit of steam etc to make the cardboard more playable. The poor mans way would be to use a iron etc. I really want to practice working on the boxes myself, but I want to get a press first. Look up comic pressing and you might get a few tips that would help.

How can I remove paint mark on the window of the Funko pop
Pop Fun To Play (10 months ago)
I usually use rubbing alcohol to remove it from the window. Sometimes you need something a little stronger like nail polish remover but rubbing alcohol works most of the time.
My uncle owns a CD store so I get that liquid stuff for free for my funko pops
Pop Fun To Play (11 months ago)
Nice!
Keith Bradbury (11 months ago)
I had a bit of luck with Colgate toothpaste and an old toothbrush. I use Radio Shack's electronic cleaner (the small spray bottle with the brush attached) to clean off all the residue, although you can use a wet cloth (just takes longer).
kevin hurd (6 months ago)
So toothpaste is an old finescale car modeling trick to buff paint into a high gloss. Basically the same way it cleans your teeth buffs out scratches and polishes paint and plastic.
Keith Bradbury (11 months ago)
The toothpaste polishes, but it leaves a bit of residue that must be removed. I use electronics cleaner, but alcohol or water works just fine.
Pop Fun To Play (11 months ago)
Interesting, so the toothpaste just cleans residue or does it polishes it a little? Not sure if it would work better then rubbing alcohol but I will have to give that a try.

kevin hurd (6 months ago)
Toothpaste, it polishes your teeth , plastic and paint.
Rice Daddy (11 months ago)
Peter Haley thankyou!
Nothing Matters (11 months ago)
you can also use all purpose cleaner. you can buy it at most stores.
Pop Fun To Play (1 year ago)
Not that I know of. I would assume it would be similar to CD scratch repair but those home remedies tend to kinda suck.
Zach M (1 year ago)
Well, my idiotic self accidentally got goo gone on the box so there's like an oil looking mark about an inch wide because it absorbed it...Any ideas? Doubt it is fixable and I don't even think paint would work because it'd be near impossible to match colors
Pop Fun To Play (1 year ago)
Sweet, that is what I thought might happen. I am happy to hear it worked pretty well. Its also good to know that may be a good way to lower grease stains on paper. I may have to give it a try.
Zach M (1 year ago)
Update: I couldn't find any rubbing alcohol, but I used acetone. I let it the box absorb it the way it absorbed goo gone and it's almost invisible, thankfully! I really appreciate the support!
Pop Fun To Play (1 year ago)
Good luck I hope you can at least make it a little less noticeable
Zach M (1 year ago)
Pop Fun To Play I'll give it a go! Live and learn. Glad I found your videos though!
Pop Fun To Play (1 year ago)
I hate goo gone because it can stain cardboard, I use rubbing alcohol for removing residue because it evaporates. You might be able to use rubbing alcohol to try to dilute the spot and remove some of the grease from the cardboard. Not 100% sure it would work but turn the box so the plastic window is below the stain so the alcohol drips down away from the card board then apply some to the area trying to dilute the grease and then whip off after 20-30 seconds. If you repeat that process a bunch of times it might dilute the stain but I am not 100% sure. See if you think its working at all after 2-3 tries

Got myself a cool safeguard for my amazing collection of the best POP figure. This Funko Pop 4" box protector I found on Amazon is the best and had the perfect fit. Check this out! https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0711YLR24/keyword+funkopop+case

Have yout tried to remove a damage plastic from the funko pops?
mrwarcriminal (9 months ago)
Archival glue? Can you recommend a brand? Ive got a window on an early Star WRs Black Series that im gonna replace the box window but im searching for the correct glue for plastic to cardboard. BTW do you know what type of plastic the windows are made from & where to buy? Lol lots of questions
Pop Fun To Play (1 year ago)
That I have not tried yet, but I suspect it would be semi easy to remove and replace the plastic. You just have to find the correct plastic to replace the window with and use an archival glue to glue in the new plastic.
Gone Amy (1 year ago)
I accidentally pressed on the box of my pop which doesnt have a pop protector. Now the plastic have folded marks. Do you know if there is a remedy for this?
hednier ghost (2 months ago)
Use a blower more easy it Will repair belive my
Keith Bradbury (11 months ago)
Your best hope for a "fold" in the plastic is heat CAREFULLY applied to the area (but not for long). A heat gun (from a shrink wrap machine) works best; don't know if you can get a blow drier to work, but its worth a try. REMEMBER: if you hold it too long in one spot, the plastic "tightens" and warps.
Pop Fun To Play (1 year ago)
I believe that is damage that cannot be repaired. If it was a cheap pop you can probably replace it and sell the damaged box version.

THE POPS ARE SO CUTE THINKING ABOUT COLLECTING THEM MYSELF, I COLLECT BARBIE DOLLS. HOW MANY POPS DO YOU HAVE , I AM GUESSING ABOUT 300 HUNDRED.
Pop Fun To Play (1 year ago)
Pops are a ton of fun to collect and relatively inexpensive as long as you don't go crazy paying second hand prices. I am not sure the count but I think I have at least 1000 Pops. I really need to set up a full display and do a full collection tour.

Hey man any advice for Tape/Sticker Residue on the actual box not the pop window?
OnB Gaming (1 year ago)
Alright i'll definitely will give it another go, thanks for replying so quickly!!
Pop Fun To Play (1 year ago)
Some stickers are made to come off more easily so start trying a little bit, if it seems stubborn like it would not peel then You can start using a blow dryer to warm up the adhesive until its easy to peel. But warming it up does sometimes make is so the adhesive leaves a sticky residue behind. If the cardboard is glossy then I usually use rubbing alcohol to remove the sticky residue. I also use the tap method of tapping the removed sticker a bunch of times on the remaining sticky part to try to remove a lot of the residue first. It takes practice but once you do it a few times you should be pretty good at removing the stickers. There are some cases though where removing the sticker will rip the box so sometimes its best to leave it be.

Wenzhe Feng (1 year ago)
Hello, I want to ask do you have any way to fix the bubble head? I mean sometimes the spring is too long/too short/not in the right position of the pop. This bothers me a lot :(
Pop Fun To Play (1 year ago)
I have that problem too, you can twist the spring on the neck peg which can fix it a little sometimes, but certain pops it just kinda sucks. What I usually do is get a needle nose pliers and push the spring from the end of the spring at the base of the neck it so it rotates into a better height or position.
sithlord519 (1 year ago)
Thanks for uploading. This was helpful. Now i know how to get rid of those scratches. I will have to try this on some of my boxes. I hate when stores put those big stickers on the boxes and plastic. They know people collect pops but they just dont care. Thanks again brother
Pop Fun To Play (1 year ago)
You are welcome, I hope you will be able to clean up a few of your boxes easily. Yeah the big giant stickers really suck, the worst when they put them half on the cardboard half on the window and you end up damaging the art trying to remove them. I think the big retailers just see them as consumable toys and don't realize they are more collectible then plaything.
Lindsey S (1 year ago)
Thank you so much for making this video!!!!!! It was super helpful and detailed! Keep up the great videos!!
Pop Fun To Play (1 year ago)
You are welcome, I really like helping out other collectors so I am very happy if it can help. Thank you ;)
Songbyrd81 (1 year ago)
This was such a wonderful and informative video. So great to see the results. Everything showed definite improvement. I have quite a few pops that need some tlc like this. Thank you!
Pop Fun To Play (1 year ago)
You are welcome, it makes me very happy that you enjoyed the video and it will help you with your collection. I think some of the pops would look even better with a little more effort but I wanted to get through as many as I could to kinda show different ways to work on the scratches as well as the different types of scratches. Sometimes for the very bad scratch stuff I will leave it out and work on it for a few minutes a day while watching youtube videos etc so that it does not seem like a huge choir but instead a little distraction for 5-10 minutes. After a few days the really badly scratched ones look really nice.
TigerRPG (1 year ago)

Heather P (1 year ago)
Do you do this for ones you put in your collection or were these ones you're going to put up for sale?
Pop Fun To Play (1 year ago)
I also find it kinda therapeutic to clean up and repair my toys when I can, it means I am adding my own love and care to them increasing their personal value to me higher then any resale value.
Pop Fun To Play (1 year ago)
I do it just for my collection, it is a lot of work so its not financially worth fixing the plastic since it does not rise the resale value that much. But for my own collection I want to enjoy the toys as much as possible and if the plastic looks bad I enjoy them less.
