First of all-apologies in advance as I'm sure this thread exists on here somewhere already. I received a carded figure yesterday and the top of bubble and almost 1/2 down both sides is no longer sealed. I wish to seal it down-yes, I'm sure, and no I don't plan on selling it-just don't want the glue to yellow or look noticeable. Any suggestions?

Personally, I'm going to say not to do it. A lot of people think about doing it but you permanently ruin the MOC.

There is a better way using a cut top loader. Here's the link:

Don't glue the bubble!

There are other solutions which secure the bubble and which still display very nicely.

See John's Toploader trick:
