Not done anything further, other than sorted a large head Han to put into the 21 back Kenner

He has no footer and still the tear need to see what I can do with it as I don't want to add anything

Thought about trying to lift the secret sticker and respositioning it over the tear but not to sure on doing that. Have to have a think on that.

Still need a smuggler blaster for Luke and a rifle for ATAT driver have some trades to put up

So had a play. Cur a piece of card to shape and printed off a name bar, folded the printed name bar around the cardboard and slid into place, so no glue or anything permanent used, the print was the wrong size and colours were off! So this is only a moc up ( forgive the pun) just to get an idea of what it looks like.

I think it will work for me for display
I will do a tidier print and replacement job and see how it goes. But here's the idea just to get a star on what it will look like :D

Disclaimer....no innocent original moc was harmed in this process and can easily be returned to the original damaged state :D

They look even better ( for me anyway) when on display :wink:

Yes mate, I'm enjoying the "play time" it's giving me

Damaged bubbles and cards in this way, have a sort of "rescue" feel to them and that gives me a buzz, the fact that they are fraught with issues is the appeal for me as well.

Only problem is, since getting the Han 21 one back I'm a bit star struck with them as they have the original Star Wars logo which is now massively appealing to me, this hobby presses buttons you didn't know you had!

This is a great solution and your results are fantastic. I'd like to give it a go, are those soft or rigid type top loaders ?

Quite inspirational and feel the appeal of rescuing items. Very nosalgic I think. Great job and an area I would like to dip when considering costs of mint items, many thanks.
