    So I just got the three first edition Prime toys from TRU.com today, and one of them has a large dent in the plastic bubble. Is there any way to make that dent... go away?

    I don't plan to open these toys. They're being locked away somewhere safe, forever, or until I feel like selling them, whichever comes first.

    A temporary adhesive might work.

    Regardless, Prime toys will be plentiful.

    Depending on the size of the dent, you could try a small suction cup.

    You can also try massaging the bubble around the dent and it might make it pop back up.

    I would get a suction dart from one of those dollar store guns, and wet the front to get better grip.

    True. They won't all be "First Editions" though. ;-)

    Right now I've got the SDCC exclusive Matrix Prime, the NYCC exclusive BB and Arcee, and now all 3 first edition Prime deluxes. So... I win.

    Does the first edition ones have different paint apps or something?

    I've actually done that before on an RTS Dx Bumblebee's package, it worked. :)

    I'm sure they will be exactly the same as the ones that will flood the shelves in the coming weeks. Except without dented bubbles. ;)

    It does. I was thinking about grabbing that one to add to my collection.
