View Full Version : Removing figure bubbles?

Have any tips on removing the bubble from the card without ripping it? I thought maybe using my exacto knife, but can a heat gun or blowdryer melt the glue and pull the bubble off better? thanks.

I have always used an exacto knife. I have never had any luck trying to remove the bubble with something like a hairdryer...

I heard that "zippo" lighter fluid works on removing the glue residue of price stickers also, it evaporates without removing the dye in the ink on the card, Its an old Star Wars figure trick. Try it in the corner first and let it sit a bit. then gingerly manipulate it. Id try it on a multiple dupe that you were going to open anyway. Let me know if it worked for you BSM

I've heard of people using acetone very sparingly to remove blisters from Hotwheels although I can not confirm this myself.

I've heard lighter fluid works best.
