PostSubject: How to Reseal a figure   How to Reseal a figure I_icon_minitimeThu Mar 21, 2013 3:22 pm

Did a search and didnt see any help. I have two figures on a 12 back that have the bubble but the bubble is coming off the card. What is the best way to glue it back down? I am NOT looking to sell it, this is for my own personal uses. I do not want to use something that might damage the card or bubble over time. I thought just normal super glue but i worry it might damage something.

Don't glue it back, once you do that, the reseal is permanent.

here is a link to a previous thread with lots of good advice on why you shouldn't glue it and suggestions to help you fix it without glue : https://www.imperialgunneryforum.com/t5409-please-help-fixing-a-separated-bubble-which-glue-to-use
Very Happy

This is how you "fix" a bubble coming off, as ourchickenshack said:
https://www.imperialgunneryforum.com/t3495-top-loader-case-to-secure-bubbles?highlight=secure

This way you won't damage the card/bubble any further with glue or any other permanent "damaging" solution, and it will display great.
Toploaders are cheap and easy to come by, and imo it's the best fix for bubbles coming off the card.

Kenner babe you cut out the exact shape of the bubble from the front of the toploader, so that the card and edges of the bubble rest underneath the toploader and are held in place.
