Paint Removal On Already Painted AreaPaint Removal On Already Painted AreaAsk MFC

I need some advice! So excuse the lack of the usual cutesy vibe I present in my articles lol

I just received the BNHA Toga nendoriod ITEM #943143 and while playing around with her whilst checking for faults, I found this bright red stain on the back of her uniform.

I am well versed in how to remove stains from nendo skin but have no clue how to remove one on an already painted area. Should I even try or simply repaint it? Thanks in advance.

[NOTE: I could also contact GSC for a replacement but I don't think the issue is big enough for all that. I will keep checking her out for any other mishaps I may have missed.]

Bah-Roo1 month ago#87587331-snip- You know, the red paint could be played off as blood, that's one way of looking at it! I haven't tried all the suggestions yet but I feel I'm going to end up painting it. At least her blemish really is minor and barely noticeable facing forward

And I sorry about your nendo joint breaking. I had one break on me a few days and it's honestly a pain to deal with! I'm just glad I have enough nendos to have plenty of spares. I've scuffed nendos myself too but since it's my own doing I'm pretty chill about those haha

Just today I was fiddling around with some nendos and I had a similar sort of thing happen, although I was the one who caused it. I was trying to fit two uncooperative pieces together and used a little too much force so the pieces slipped and accidentally smashed together abruptly. I got a tiny red paint transfer - from a ribbon - onto the nendo's pink dress. I was having a lot of frustrations with stiff nendo joints as well so that was sort of like a "oh, fuck this!" moment, lol.

Anyway, this is a very non helpful answer but if it were me I would probably just leave it. It's on the back of the figure where you are less likely to see it. Also, it looks like it could pass as a small blood splatter/stain; and Toga loves blood, after all!

It seems like other people gave you better advice, so I hope their advice worked for you and that you managed to get the red paint off! If not, good luck for whatever you try next and if that fails then you can adopt my attitude of not being bothered. Just think; it could've been worse...

Speaking of worse things, that just reminded me that I broke a nendo part today by accident, lol. I accidentally snapped a pony tail off, oops. It broke at the ball joint thing. In my defense the joint was stupidly stiff and I don't think I was applying that much pressure or anything. Oh well! Even though that was pretty bad, it still could have been worse! I guess I'm pretty lax/chill about these kinds of things. If the problem is only minor and isn't visible from a distance, then I'm probably gonna be mostly chill about it. Thankfully I've never had any disastrous accidental breaks or paint transfers. And also thankfully I've never received a figure with a serious defect.

D_A_R1 month ago#87541057You can try a regular (latex free) eraser first. It's not as aggressive as a magic eraser. I used it on a few figures and it always worked pretty good. oh snap, let me try that right now. That would be such a simple solution too.

kiizato1 month ago#87536506Oh no! For me personally, I think I would paint over it... I did that for ITEM #549415's hair when my sister got her, because the seller packed her horrifically and she got paint transfer from her base as a result. I took the smallest amount of acrylic paint and managed to fix the area so that it isn't visible any longer.
I'm by no means a professional, so there could be a better way, but that's just what I did. ^^'
Though I am sorry about your sister's figure, but I am glad to read painting it is a solution that works. I guess I'm just nervous about not exactly matching the color, but it would be better than this bright red spot haha

urataros1 month ago#87536661The only suggestion I have is to - very gently - try to remove the spot w a magic eraser. As long as you're not too harsh it should be fine. Just make sure to occasionally take a look at the magic eraser as you're doing this so if you do see any of the blue paint being removed you can stop b4 it's noticeable.
