Question on Figure Damage

Posted in Action Figure Chatter

Would putting an action figure on top of your microwave for decoration be harmful to it over time? They always are telling you when your a kid to not have your face too close to the microwave, so I thought maybe the same went for plastic. Thanks for any input!

I would say that if the the outside of your microwave becomes hot enough when in use to melt plastic sitting on top then it really is time to buy a new microwave!

Hmm, dunno.
More around the door area/seams would be likely to do anything.

RELATED:
My parents have an ancient microwave that they got as a wedding gift, 25 YEARS AGO, lol.
Anyway~
Its a large microwave that sits on its own stand/shelf in the kitchen, It's had all kinds of things on or around it, and I never noticed any damage done to anything.
HOWEVER~
Recently a vintage glass towel/rag rod was set just under the door area waiting to be installed, And the microwave was used in this time...
For some reason it caused melting near where the glass rod was setting.

*Update
Microwave straight up died the other day, About a week after the glass rod setting near it incident.

I bought a ton of them dirt cheap (my mom gets a discount) and am going to cut them down a bit to fit in my display cases better but they're heavy enough not to let the figure tip over.

Thanks for the suggestion.

I like this idea. That way you can deocrate the tile and make a mini diorama

I'd put something that stays cool between them just to be safe. go to a home improvement place and get a bathrooom floor tile that has been finished. They don't transfer heat well so it should help. even a nice finished piece of fairly thick wood would help.

I don't believe you can damage your figure unless the microwave heats through the metal, in which it probably can boil your figure if hot enough.
