As Pop fans, it’s easy to fall into the trap of a few Funko Pop common mistakes collectors make when it comes to managing and caring for our beloved figures. Here are a few mistakes that we might be guilty of, and some tips on how to avoid them:
Not doing our research before buying
It’s crucial to do our due diligence before purchasing a new Funko Pop. This means looking into the market value of the figure, checking for any flaws or defects, and verifying its authenticity. Not researching before buying can lead to overpaying for a Funko Pop or accidentally buying a counterfeit figure.
Not using proper storage
Protecting our Funko Pops from damage is essential to maintaining their value. Using protective cases or display stands can help prevent accidental knocks or spills, while storing our figures in a cool, dry place will also help protect them from extreme temperatures and humidity.
Neglecting to care for our collection
Regular care and maintenance is key to keeping our Funko Pops in good condition. This includes handling them carefully to avoid accidental damage, and dusting or cleaning them regularly to keep them looking their best. Neglecting to care for our collection can lead to our figures becoming dirty or damaged, which can significantly decrease their value.
Not being aware of limited edition releases
Some Funko Pops are produced in limited quantities and can be highly sought-after by collectors. It’s important to be aware of these releases and to act quickly if we want to add one of these figures to our collection. Otherwise, we may miss out on the opportunity to own a rare and valuable Funko Pop.
Not knowing the value of our collection
It’s important for us as collectors to have a good understanding of the value of our Funko Pops. This includes being aware of factors that can affect the value of a figure, such as rarity, condition, and demand. By keeping track of these factors, we can get a better sense of the value of our collection and make informed decisions about buying, selling, and caring for our figures.
By avoiding these common mistakes, we can ensure that our Funko Pop collection stays in top condition and maintains its value over time. By doing our research, using proper storage and care techniques, staying up-to-date on limited edition releases, and having a good understanding of the value of our collection, we can continue to enjoy our Funko Pops for years to come.
