Do Funko Pop Heads Come Off

Funko pops are a popular line of collectible figurines that have captured the hearts of fans of all ages. These adorable figures feature a large head and a small body, and are known for their unique and recognizable design. One question that many fans might wonder is do Funko Pop heads come off? In this post, let’s dig in and explore the answer to this question and discuss the reasons why Funko pops are designed the way they are.

Fixed or Removable Head?

First, it’s important to note that all Funko pops have removable heads. The majority of Funko pops are designed with a fixed head, meaning that the head is not meant to come off – but with enough force, it pops right off. Ha. 

The head is the most important and recognizable part of the figure, and it is where most of the details are concentrated. By keeping the head fixed, the Funko pop maintains its unique and iconic design.

Funko Customization

However, some Funko pop collectors do remove the heads on purpose. These fans enjoy customizing and switching out the heads to add their own twist to their figures. This is meant to add an extra level of playability and collectability to these figures.

When it comes to the question of whether or not the heads on Funko pops come off, the answer is a resounding YES – with enough force.

How To Easily Take The Head Off Safely

Want to know a little secret on how to remove the head of a Funko pop? 

It’s not as complicated as you might think. All you need is a big bowl and some boiling water. Simply place the entire Funko pop into the bowl and pour the boiling water on top. Make sure the body and neck are fully immersed. 

After about 10 minutes, the head will become extra soft and the glue holding it in place will melt. Carefully remove the Funko from the water and gently twist and pull the body to separate the head. The melted glue should make the process easy.

If you’re a little iffy about using hot water – just use enough force to pull the head off.

It’s important to note that just because a Funko pop has a removable head, it doesn’t mean that it should be removed. Do not attempt this on your more expensive Funko Pops! I Repeat – DO NOT DO THIS!

Removing the head can damage the figure and decrease its value as a collectible item. It is best to keep it in its original condition and enjoy the feature without taking it off.
