Biker scout question
« on: December 30, 2002, 09:48 AM »
Ok I picked up a short mask square bubble biker scout. The bubble looks like it was never removed but the glue looks like frozen spit. All coudy.The pic looks ok but up close it is a little strange. with all my other carded figs I haven't seen it yet. This is the first type of this bubble I have though

Here is a pic;;

What's the official question you are asking here?  Do you think it's a fake or something?  I have this same figure, but mine looks like the real deal.  Got mine for $50 unpunched and my card is 99% mint.  I might have paid a few bucks too much, but I love it!

Question is is it normal for the bubble glue to look like this? I doesn't look resealed I was just wondering about the glue going cloudy.

I got quite a few carded figs and none look like that.Do you have it on hand?If you do look at it in the light and see if the glue still has the cross stich pattern.If not it's a pretty good reseal.

The glue has the cross stich mpattern but it is cloudy? Maybe the end run of  barrel of glue?

Well, it sounds like it has the cross stitch pattern which is good. It may be cloudy from all the years in storage or being  exposed  to the air or something along the lines. It looks very good.  :)
