Hi, I've got a few figures where the bubbles are loose or almost detached. Is there a recommended type of glue to use to reattach the without discoloring the plastic or warping it?

I might be wrong but the bubbles are heat sealed and pressed on cards. An easy fix that looks nice for your own enjoyment of a carded fig is to use double sided tape. It's clear and will hold together for a long time without ruing the integrity of the card like some glues can. I've used Loctite contact cement.
It's clear, and came out looking pretty good, but if you decide to use any kind of good glue be careful since it can discolor the cardback, or soak into the cardstock.

I was thinking maybe you could could use something that you can brush on - similar to boba's cement suggestion. My thinking is that you have a little more control over the amount of adhesive you want to apply.
