Does Steam/Hot Air Damage Figures?Does Steam/Hot Air Damage Figures?Misc

So, as crazy as it seems, I have been considering on putting one of my figures in my bathroom, I have a cool spot for it and would like to display it there, but I'm afraid the steam in my bathroom would damage it, do any of you have any experience with this?, that could be able to help me?, would steam damage my figure?

I personally wouldn't put them anywhere damp or humid. Speaking from experience, living in Okinawa where it was extremely humid all the time, I saw people's collections that were not in climate-controlled rooms with low humidity start growing mold after only a year or two. PVC is sort of porous, so if that ever happens, you will really struggle to get rid of it without destroying the figure.

I have some older scaled figures that have had paint fading from just the heat that the electronics in my room give off (tv, computer, surround sound system, PS4/PS3). Its most noticeable in the hair, usually the hair will fade first then the paint around the torso.

The air isn't hot enough to damage the plastic. The fading paint really is noticeable, though. Mine are mostly things that cost 5-20$ tops. I wouldn't display a scale or even a Nendoroid in the bathroom.

SebastianLover3 months ago#95863687It depends on how much steam. In my experience, humidity is bad for figures but this is several hours of exposure each day (not from showering lol but from humid as hell summer days). If you take short showers or don't take very hot showers and have an exhaust fan in your bathroom I don't think it'd be a big risk. Otherwise I wouldn't recommend it.

I usually only shower for short periods of time and always have my door/window open so steam goes away quickly, still thank you for your input it does help me get an idea of what i’d deal with

check frosting figure to see what it looks like.


Thanks for the help! And for the images too, it gives me an idea how much I’d have to care for if I put my figure in there, maybe I’ll give it a try with something a prize figure or something first

I left a sonico prize figure in my 90 degree car for like a half an hour and she is fine. That doesn’t really answer your question about steam though.

I don't have any personal experience with steam regarding figures but heat generally isn't great for figures cause they might melt and get deformed. It could also damage the paint.
