How to Open Star Wars Figures Without Damaging the Card Back or Bubble

Hi Star Wars fans,

Welcome to my video on how to open Star Wars figures without damaging the card back or bubble. When I say Star Wars figures I am specifically talking about the modern Vintage Collection by Hasbro, although I am sure this technique could be used on other action figures.

Using this technique will allow you to carefully lift off the bubble from the card without damaging or ripping the image. You will then be able to put a different figure in and reseal if you so wish.

I recently used this technique on the Vintage Collection R2-D2 which Hasbro released with weathering. I neatly opened the figure and placed a clean R2-D2 in its place. Then, I resealed the bubble to the card back using Pritt Stick glue. I hope you will agree that the results look very good. You can hardly tell that it has been resealed.

I now have two R2-D2s  – one clean and one weathered. Both sitting proudly in Star Cases on my wall.

If you are a fan of the Vintage Collection, be sure to check out my page for a full list of figures that have been released since the return of the Vintage Collection in 2018.

I hope you enjoy the video!
