So I bought Transformers Generations Fall of Cybertron Kickback from a guy I know through eBay. It was listed as never opened and the accompanying photo was of the actual toy (not a stock photo) and you can see clear as day it is still MOC.

Well, something must have happened in transit (from CO to MA) and the card back got separated from the bubble. The toy inside is still twisty-tied to the insert. No damage there.

I'm thinking of trying to reattach it to the card but I'm not sure what kind of adhesive to use. Has anyone had any experience with this kind of thing?

Or should I just free it from it's plastic and cardboard prison and try to replace it - which will cost a minimum of $25-30.

Opinions please...

Just try glueing it back together. If it messes things up ... well ... rip it back open and be done with it. :)

rubber cement maybe, or some clear super glue.

I would just open it up and play with it.

Gorilla Glue is usually good for this sort of thing.
