I would like to fix some bent minis, but I am worried the hot water may strip away the sundrop. Has anyone tested their minis yet?
Don't bother with a hot water, just use a hair dryer. Faster, less troublesome and worked fine for my copy. Figures are made of quite a soft plastic (I believe that's why they mostly bend rather than break), they don't need a really high temperature to become soft again.
If you want to use a water, DON'T USE A BOILING WATER - it certainly is much too hot. Let it cool down to a temperature of a hot bath and then give a try.
