New to 3A figures, tips about maintenance anyone?

Post by Robolettox on Fri Jul 15, 2016 1:20 am

Hello!

I just received my first 3A figure, the Titan from Destiny.

It is an amazing figure but it is unlike any I have ever had before. I collect Square Enix Play Arts figures and believed the Titan would be like them, only bigger.

It was a surprise for me to see all articulation is hidden by a rubber body.

While it looks very beautifull I am worried it may crack and break someday.

So I am here to ask if there is some preventive maintenance to be done to avoid this, and tips in general to keep the figure in good condition for a long time.

Any help will be appreciated!

Thanks all!

Cool, congrats on your first purchase!

To clarify we do not use rubber, we use a soft PVC which is more durable and should prevent any cracking.

Soak your figures in lemon juice to keep the finish from fading...Just kidding. DON'T DO THAT!
Honestly, if you have them enclosed in a display case where dust is minimal, the figure won't need cleaning. Also, to quote Gremlins, keep them out of bright light, especially sunlight. It kills them. Really it would possibly fade the skin tones if exposed 24/7 in sunlight, but that goes for all things plastic. Plastic fades from light exposure.
Really, so long as you don't play crazy with them, there is no reason for them to break. The more detailed figures like DOTM Prime, he's gonna be either in my Prime display cases or with Hot Toys display case. Either way, prevents him from falling. Would be SUPER SAD if he broke.

Lemon juice does keep fruits from browning, but that's for another thread.

Oh absolutely. Making a fruit salad for a get together, add lemon juice. Especially helpful with apples to prevent browning the moment air touches it, aka as you cut it :p
