Keeping Lego Seals intact
Posted 08 September 2010 - 06:37 AM
I have a bunch of sealed sets from the early 90's that I plan to keep storing for longer in good condition. When I pulled them out however I noticed that some of the sets have seals that have worn off while some look straight from the factory.
What is the best way to preserve these seals, so they don't come off? I know that a temperature and humidity controlled room would be ideal but I don't have access to that and need a more practical way to store them.

Yeah, okay, I have some sealed boxes too. None are stickers though, they're all punch open. (ie factory sealed with glue)

If so, you might make friends with certain store employees. I worked at a certain office supply store back in the day, and we had a shrink wrap machine in the back.
If not that route, you can probably do at home with shrink wrap and a hair dryer.
Keeps dust off as well.

If you guys want the sets to be open then buy some from me .

I have a ton of old MISB sets from that era too, but have been steadily opening and building them over time. It's easy to keep the bricks in pristine shape if you take a few precautions with the lighting and how you disassemble the bricks.
