How to Properly Care for Your Anime Figures

Falling in love with anime figures and owning them is a dream for weebs. But once you have your prized figure, there's one challenge that comes up: keeping it in great shape. Many collectors struggle with finding the best ways to keep their figures looking just as amazing as the day they first got them.

The good news is, taking care of your anime figures isn't that hard. With a few simple tips, you can keep them looking fresh and even boost their value if you ever decide to sell them.

Here are some easy and practical tips to help you keep your anime figures in top condition.

1. Handle Your Figures with Care


When you pick up your figures, treat them like fragile treasures that need a gentle touch. Imagine them as delicate artworks that require your utmost care. Avoid touching their delicate parts or fragile limbs, and consider washing your hands before handling them to keep them free from dirt and oils. It’s like giving them a royal treatment fit for the stars of your collection.

For figures with small, easily detachable parts, like Nendoroids, extra caution is needed. These figures often come with customizable parts such as different faces, arms, and accessories. Since these small parts are easy to lose, consider storing them in a small, labeled box placed next to your figure in a display case. Regularly check and clean these components to ensure none are missing and everything stays in perfect condition.

2. Make Sure Your Figures Are in a Safe Place


When displaying or storing your anime figures, it's crucial to avoid areas with high humidity or household chemicals. Use display cases or cabinets to shield them from environmental damage.

Also, keep your figures away from direct sunlight. Prolonged exposure can fade their colors and the heat might even damage the material, potentially causing it to warp or melt.

When your figures are off-duty and not dazzling on display, they deserve a safe haven to rest. Think of them as sleepy superheroes needing a cozy hideout. Invest in storage boxes or cases specially designed for collectibles to protect them from dust, moisture, and potential harm. It’s like giving them their own secret base to retreat to when not saving the day on display.

3. Clean Them Regularly


Dust is everywhere, and it can dull the appearance of your anime figures, even if they are stored carefully. Over time, dust can settle into small areas like hair, eyes, and hands, causing the figures to lose their charm and even change color.

To keep your figures looking their best, clean them regularly. Use small tools like squeegees or cotton swabs to reach into tiny crevices. A small-head air spray can also be very effective for removing dust from intricate details quickly and easily.

Always wash your hands before handling or cleaning your figures. The natural oils and dirt on your hands can transfer to the figures, making them dirty and potentially damaging the finish over time. Regular handling without proper care can give your figures a gently used look.

While dust is not the most harmful issue, if left unattended for long periods, it can cake onto your figures, making it difficult to remove. To keep your collection looking sharp and vibrant, display your figures in closed cabinets or keep them in their boxes when not on display. This will help keep dust at bay and preserve their beauty.

4. Wash Figures Only When Necessary


While regular dusting is sufficient for routine maintenance, you should wash your figures only when necessary, in order to preserve their quality.

When washing, use warm water and a mild detergent, such as soap. Gently clean with a soft toothbrush to avoid damaging delicate paint or details. After washing, pat dry with a soft towel and allow to air dry naturally. Avoid using a dryer or exposing figures to direct sunlight, as heat can distort their material.

By washing your figures only when needed and using gentle methods, you can maintain their quality and preserve their beauty for years to come.

No matter the size of your collection, giving your anime figures the care they deserve ensures they'll continue to bring joy for years to come.
