Palitoy 65 Back vader

Hi guys,

What do you think of the bubble on this?

Some lift off the Litho, but the seal is tight.

Looks like a lot of Jedi Palitoy seals are going like this. I’ve got a Palitoy Logray which is similar, but hasn’t got any worse for years.

What are you thinking Grant, whether it’s a reseal or not? Don’t think so. I have one that looks the same, the slick seal is strong but there’s little tiny areas at the very edges that I think didn’t actually glue/attach properly at the factory.
