At Mighty Ape, we’re passionate collectors of Pop! Vinyl too. So we understand that you want to receive your Pop in the very best condition possible. All our Pops have passed Funko’s internal quality control programme, and our own inwards team here at Mighty Ape look over the product we receive and reject any Pops that are obviously defective or have been damaged in transit. Please note that we would not accept into stock any product that we ourselves would not be happy to receive as a collector.
That being said, it’s important to understand that Pops are a relatively low-cost, mass-manufactured items, and as such, there are minor variations in the manufacturing process that we all must accept. This includes variation in both the packaging and the Pop! Vinyl figurine itself. Variations in the packaging may include minor dents, scuffs, tears or creases to the box. On the figurine, variation may include minor paint or colour variations.
Mighty Ape will not accept returns (either replacement or refund) for minor variations of this nature. Our rationale for this policy is that the products are still fit for their intended purpose – which is, of course, an awesome, low cost, collectable toy to play with or display.
Pops that have very obviously been damaged in transit or have manufacturing defects that would not be considered “minor” by a reasonable person, will, of course, be accepted for return with our apologies. If you think your Pop fits these criteria or you'd just like our opinion, please feel free to contact our support team who will be very happy to assist you!
Obviously what is considered “minor” by one person could be considered an “issue” by the next, however, we find that the overwhelming majority of customers consider our approach to assessing the damage of this nature to be fair and reasonable. While we wish all our customers to be 100% happy with their Pop! Vinyl purchase, as this policy states, we regret that we will not accept returns for minor manufacturing variations and our assessment of this is final. We hope that you will continue to enjoy purchasing Pops from us with us while keeping these guidelines in mind. :)
