what’s going on you guys thank you so
much for tuning in to the channel dr.
applesauce I’m will I hope y’all are
having a wonderful day it’s a beautiful
day here in Texas and I have a really
fun video plan for today that I have
been planning on doing for quite a while
now couple videos ago I promised you
guys I would start doing some
informative style videos on different
things that I’ve learned and today’s the
first one and so I thought the best way
I could introduce this new type of
series that I’m going to be doing is to
torture test some of the best pot
protectors out there on the market for
your Funko pops we all know that as
collectors we want to protect our most
valuable Funko pops some of the
collectors like myself every single one
of my pops is in a protector my most
valuable ones are in hard stacks and
then I’ve got some other protectors that
I keep everything else in but I just put
them all in protectors because that’s
the decision that I have made other
collectors only put their most valuable
pops in protectors which is totally fun
but I wanted to do a nice acid test so
to speak today and maybe by the end of
everything we will have some good
results okay alright guys so let’s talk
about the three protectors that we’re
going to be testing today up first we
are going to be testing out the 0.5
millimeter
soft pop protector from Schumi if
anybody has paid attention to my videos
I love let’s see if I can get that to
focus I love the shoe me store they just
that’s where I get all of my pre-orders
they are a really wonderful smaller
company love to support small businesses
Nia over there at the streaming store is
a great guy and I just trust them they
have their mint protection guarantee and
I know that if I order a pop from them
it’s going to come in great shape they
also have these great pop protectors
that are 0.5 millimeters thick they do
have this nice flap right here where you
can
lock everything in and something that’s
unique about well it’s not unique about
these but special to this a lot of
others don’t have it I don’t know if
that’s autofocusing well but they have a
double reinforced edge right there so
these are definitely really really nice
so this is the first protector that
we’re going to to test today and don’t
anybody freak out okay we are going to
be risking some pops today all right I
picked out three pops that are some of
my most comments that I either have
doubles of or they don’t fall into my
collection and we are going to be
putting these up to test today they are
all in mint condition and so after we do
our torture testing we are going to look
at the pops outside of the protectors
and see what damage they have so Suicide
Squad Joker is going to be our Schumi
protector okay next up to pour our
torture testing is hop shield from seven
bucks a pop these are a point four five
millimeter protector they don’t have the
the double reinforced corners but these
are ones that I have used a lot they are
really really nice they have a good feel
to them you know that you can get those
really flimsy sheet protectors that are
like 10 cents they don’t really do
anything but maybe protect from a
scratch these are really nice they have
a good feel I’ve dropped pops with these
you know sometimes and they protect them
really well they do have the nice
sealing flap right here as well as the
Schumi protectors and I like these a lot
I have tended to use these a whole lot
and we’re gonna put this one up next to
our other two as well okay and the pop
that is going to be representing the pop
shield is a mint-condition very Sanders
alright so Barry Sanders is going to be
our hot shield
experiment alright and again like I said
we are risking some props here okay you
know somebody has a huge issue with that
pops maybe damage in the making of this
video just before one alright so we’ll
have Barry Sanders representing our 0.45
millimeter pop shield protectors from
seven bucks a pop and then last but not
least we have a good old-fashioned pop
stack everybody knows about pop stacks
pop stacks are legit you can open them
you can close the tops you can stack
them on top of each other it’s kind of
just the go-to for what you put your
pops in if they’re really really
valuable so the reason I want to do this
torture test is to see if one of the
other two is better than a good
old-fashioned pop stack okay one of the
issues with pops tax is if you’re not
careful you can scratch your pop if this
is slightly damaged can scratch your pop
when you’re putting it inside okay so
and another issue is sometimes I’ve
heard that these will crack if you’ve
dropped them – from – too far of a
height so representing our good old
fashioned pop stack is going to be a
mint-condition Marshawn Lynch so we’re
gonna stick Marshawn Lynch in there and
get him ready to go now let’s talk about
price point on all of these okay a good
old-fashioned pop stack is gonna run you
about eight to ten dollars depending
where you buy it and what deal you buy
it a shoe me protector these are under a
buck you can get a package of sixty four
fifty four dollars shipped I believe it
is and then our pop shield protectors
those are under a dollar a piece as well
I think you can get a package of fifty
for $37 shift so not much price
difference between these two there’s a
little bit not a whole lot but
definitely a big price disparity from
from pop stack to today’s – guys okay
guys the first thing we’re gonna do is
we’re just gonna do a good old-fashioned
drop test okay I’m 6 foot tall that’s a
couple feet behind me I’m gonna grab
each one of these in turn and I am just
gonna drop it and we’re gonna see what
happens
okay so let’s try it okay first up we
are doing our pop shield protector with
Barry Sanders okay oh my gosh I am a
little bit nervous about this it hurts
my soul a little bit
okay let’s try dropping it on a hard
surface okay next is the Schumi
protector with our Suicide Squad Joker
[Music]
[Music]
and next we have our pop stack with our
Barry sander or I’m sorry our Marshawn
Lynch I fully expect the the top to pop
off on this one so let’s see hey
the pup didn’t the top didn’t come off
that worked pretty good bottom came off
on that one I don’t want to drop this in
front of the TV so we’re gonna drop it
on a hard surface right here see what
happens oh there we got a got a little
crack I don’t know if you’ll be able to
see it on the camera but there’s a crack
right there let’s give it one more drop
[Music]
make all things fair let’s give the shoe
me another a little drop like that and
pop shield next to simulate a little
brother sister or nephew or niece or
your child getting ahold of your pop
when they shouldn’t we are going to just
throw them across the room let’s do it
okay first
suicide Joker Suicide Squad Joker in the
shoe me 0.5 millimeter pop protector
next we have our Barry Sanders in the
point four five millimeter pop shield
protector oh my gosh and then we’ve got
our Marshawn Lynch up next in the pop
stack ooh
I didn’t sound good okay let’s try that
again Schumi can you tell this is
killing me a little bit on the inside
but anything in the name of science
Barry Sanders I am noticing Barry
Sanders has some big gouging on the
front of the pop shield a piece of me
dies every time I do that and then
Marshawn Lynch in our pop stack all
right guys I think we may have we
definitely broke the pop stack in that
last one and these other two don’t look
too much worse for wear so the last
experiment I’m gonna do what is the
worst way your pop can get damaged the
number-one way as a collector we fear
all the time and that is shipping
sometimes people don’t know how to
package well sometimes companies don’t
how to package well and we know for darn
sure no offense to anybody out there
that works for a partial service you
guys do a great job and have tons of
packages to deliver but partial services
sometimes can’t handle all of the
packages properly and crap happens so
I’m gonna do the best that I can to
mimic a shipping nightmare okay so we
have a box right here and we are just
going to stick Barry Sanders in there
okay mr. Barry Sanders and we’re gonna
close this box and then weird
that’s good enough or not I mean these
things go through go through the gambit
feel like I should probably get my 400
pound friend to sit on it that might be
accurate but okay let’s take out Barry
Sanders next up for the shipping test we
have the Joker in our Schumi protector
give this a shot and last but not least
Marshawn Lynch in our pop stack and
obviously I didn’t put bubble wrap in
here I’m trying to simulate the worst
possible scenario all right guys so
let’s review how everything turned out
I was gonna do a fourth test I think the
only one of these that might be slightly
airtight and slightly water-resistant is
the pop stack but I didn’t want to
submerge these in water and almost
certainly ruin all of them so I didn’t
do that you want to test that put your
results down below and let us know how
the waterproof test went but I didn’t do
that okay first let’s check out the pop
stack the top and the bottom did fall
off multiple times okay so take that
before it’s
earth and then we’ve got our pop exposed
[Music]
he doesn’t look that bad he’s definitely
not minty fresh like he was we’ve got
some some folding we’ve got a little bit
of creasing right here I think some of
the biggest issues are if you can see
we’ve got some dinged corners now that
weren’t there but surprisingly enough I
mean this is a lot sturdier than I
thought I’ve heard people saying if it
cracks it’ll rip your pop I threw it
across the room multiple times and shook
the bejesus out of it and it didn’t it
didn’t ruin it so it’s still in decent
shape I’d give it a 9 out of 10 still so
that’s not bad other than the fact that
we have little pieces of pop stacked
laying everywhere that’s ok next let’s
do the shoe me store pop protector with
our Suicide Squad Joker I have to be
completely honest looking at this I
don’t see any damage whatsoever
OOP nope there’s a tiny tiny bit right
there the tiny bit right there let’s see
I don’t know if I can get y’all to we
can see this can you just barely see
right there the protector on that corner
is just barely cracked and on this
corner it’s just just barely cracked a
bit I don’t know if the camera will pick
that up it’s so miniscule I almost
missed it but other than that it’s in
really really good shape and I put this
thing through the wringer and I think
you know the whole purpose is we would
rather our protector break than our our
collectible Funko pop figure right so
taking it out still looks in decent
shape I’ll probably reuse this one I
won’t reuse the pop stack but I’ll
probably reuse this one with the lesser
expensive pop but our jerk
Joker Funko pop
to be honest looks almost in perfect
shape I’ve got two tiny tiny
imperfections right there can you see
that tiny crease in that tiny crease and
I have to be honest I’m not a hundred
percent sure if those were there or not
before I don’t think they were but other
than that there is absolutely nothing
wrong with this Joker and I put it
through the wringer so that’s uh that’s
a win right there and last we have mr.
Barry Sanders in the pop shield the
first thing I noticed is and this is not
on the pop can you see can you see that
there’s like a big ol scratch down the
front of the protector so that happened
and like I said again not a bad thing
okay not a bad thing we want these to
take the brunt of the damage looking at
the corners looking at the protector
itself I have to be completely honest it
it doesn’t look damaged at all other
than that scratch doesn’t look damaged
at all so let’s get this guy open okay
yeah we have a big scratch right here
which is a bummer a whole bunch of
scratches down the front that weren’t
there before but other than that we have
a little bit of separation yeah on the
front and the backs a little bit of
separation on the bottom from all of the
abuse it took
so there is that but overall it’s in
decent shape it seemed like it took the
damage really really well and then
looking at Barry Sanders I’ve got a
little crease here on the top that
wasn’t there before you don’t know if
you’ll be able to see it but there is a
tiny little crease right here that
wasn’t there really nothing else
yeah nothing else that ones in in pretty
good shape too alright guys so in
summary I have to be honest they all did
a really good job and remember these are
all good quality pop protectors these
are not the 10 for $1 junkie protectors
that you can find at any flea market
these are good quality good companies I
my initial thoughts is I would recommend
any of these three to protect your Funko
pop collection ok if you have your pops
in any of these protectors they’re gonna
be well-served okay don’t use the cheap
ones that you can buy anywhere go for
shoo me go for pop shield from 7 bucks a
pop or pop stacks okay they’re all going
to work wonderfully but let’s break it
down a little bit more beyond that okay
our pop stack did crack did break I
could see the risk of having an
expensive pop in here and dropping it
and getting a crack in just the right
place and it’s scratching your pop that
did not happen just now but look I don’t
know if you saw that but that’s a piece
of it that broke out this is garbage no
it didn’t happen to us where the pop
itself got scratched on the window or
anything but I could totally see that
happening with the pop stack that gets
really badly abused or dropped from you
know six foot high shelf onto a tile or
hardwood floor or something like that I
could see it as a possibility that
doesn’t mean it’s not a good protector
for your Funko pops I think it held up
did a great job the the Marshawn Lynch
pop that was in here did get a little
bit damaged on those corners where it
broke and I think the Marshawn Lynch was
the most damaged out of all of them so
we have to take that into account and
the fact that these average anywhere
from eight to ten dollars I would say
even though I think all three of these
are winners and you will be well served
protecting your collection in any of
these I have to say I think this is the
loser of the three that does not mean
you shouldn’t use it I think this is a
great option for those those more
expensive pops in our collection but I
do have to say I think based on the
price point based on the fact that
protector actually broke and it’s no
longer usable like I put this back on
there and it just falls off because of
that I think this one is the loser
moving on to shoe me and pop shield they
both did a great job this one having the
double reinforced corners was really
really nice but I have to admit this one
over here not the the the pop shield not
having the reinforced corners where the
shoe me does I put all of those through
some abuse I didn’t see any difference
it doesn’t have a double reinforced
corner on the the pop shield like the
shoe me but it is like I’m I’m squeezing
it pretty good I’m probably adding a you
know probably a good 8 to 10 pounds of
pressure and it’s not collapsing and
then if I do the same on the shoe me I
send me the same thing they’re both very
very sturdy so I think they’re
equivalent in that regard they both have
the really nice flap right here that
secures your lid of your protector on
and then this one is just a point five
millimeter
I’m sorry point four five millimeter on
the pop shield acid free as opposed to a
point five millimeter on the Schumi acid
free they both have their company logos
pop shield is on the front Jimmy’s on
the bottom and both of the pops were
very very minimally damaged from the
abuse and both of the pop protectors
were slightly slightly damaged on the
bottom corners so what does that tell me
what does that tell us
I have to be perfectly honest with you I
think they were both wonderful and I
honestly I think they’re a tie I don’t
see a clear winner from the the pop
shield protectors from seven bucks a pop
in the shoe me they both did a great job
I have to say I think I do like the shoe
me a bit better because of the double
reinforced corners because they’re late
their company logo is on the bottom not
right on the top and if you look right
here well here’s your shoe me I don’t
know how well it’s gonna focus cuz these
are clear there’s your pop shield the
pop shield has more of a bow up top okay
the shrooming has a little bit of a bow
too but the pop shields more pronounced
the shoe means in my opinion they stack
a little bit better they all they both
stack well but the shimmy stack of a bit
better okay at price point
54:37 dollars shipped and 64-54 dollar
shipped these are just a hair more
expensive but it’s almost all it’s
almost a wash as far as prices they’re
they’re both around 60 to 70 cents each
and I can’t give you a clear winner but
to say that I think these two are
wonderful wonderful pop protectors for
your Funko pop collection I would hazard
to put my more valuable pops in either
of these before my pop stacks now having
seen the pop stack crack and break and
all that good stuff I’m even leery of I
didn’t do an impact test but I think
impact wise we might get some crushing
on the shoe me and the pop shield but on
the pop stack I think if we do an impact
test we’re gonna get some breakage and
potentially some puncturing and tearing
in the pop so I have to say it’s tied
you just have to decide for yourself
which one you like the best if you don’t
want to spend fifty four dollars and you
only want to spend thirty-seven then you
might want to go with the pop shield if
you don’t mind a little bit extra better
quality and a little bit extra cost
then shoe me is 100% the way to go but I
think with either of these you’re going
to be well-served they’re going to
protect your Funko pop collection very
very well and you will not be
disappointed alright guys that was a lot
of fun I hope y’all enjoyed that video
if you couldn’t tell there was a bits of
me dying on the inside every time I was
throwing one of those Funko pops across
the room or dropping it even though
there were comments that I have
duplicates of like being a collector
through and through
that was difficult but I hope that was
helpful to you I hope that y’all were
able to get some good information and
some good knowledge from that torture
test to be able to make the best
decisions for your collection like I
said you will be well served using any
of those pop protectors for your Funko
pop collection

okay as you guys know my choice would be
the shoe me protectors those are the
