    There is no full proof way since the yellowing of the bubbles is due to the oxygen in take from the glue disolving and separation to allow air in. The best way is to the have figures and sets encased and sealed, then stored in a spot without a lot of heat and light to further the process.

    The yellowing of the bubble is the result of a chemical degradation/breakdown in the bubble itself. Storing a carded figure/giftset in total darkness can still result in a yellowed bubble. Mattel (and all of its global manufacturing plants) used cheap plastic (as opposed to collector-minded archival plastics, lol). It is absolutely inevitable that your bubbles will yellow. Enjoy it while it's clear and then move on.

    As a side note, it is not uncommon for figures from sealed cases to have yellowed bubbles.
    go go dissertation!
