Hey everyone, I always clean my new battle beasts carefully with warm soapy water and a tooth brush.  I picked up 5 laser beasts and was careful to not get any water into the hole in their back.  Apparently I didn't do a very good job...  All 5 have moisture droplets on the inside of the orb.  Any suggestions on how to get this out?  At this point I'm just hoping time and they will evaporate.....

Put them in a sealed bag/container with one of those silica gel packets. That will suck all the moisture right out.

I had the same issue. I heated them up with a hairdryer, popped the cylinder out with a matchstick, opened the cylinder up and dried it with a tissue. Also a good tip for swapping symbols. A great trick taught to me by a Pro

Very good to know.  One of my wood symbols is vertical instead of horizontal.  Maybe I can fix it now.  Thank you!

Popping the cylinder out is an option although I´d not advice to do this with a matchstick or anything else that has a sharp or hard end because you risk scratching or damaging the symbol which is actually applied on the backside of the cylinder so when you stick something through the hole on the back to push the cylinder out on the front (after warming the figure up so the rubber becomes more flexible a bit) it can get damaged. And this would leave you with a pretty nasty looking symbol if it shows signs of damage or scratched due to the fact that the cylinder also magnifies making it look even worse.

So a cotton swab could be a better solution when it comes to popping the orb out. 

 

In this scenario with the moisture inside and no direct need to take the whole orb out I´d go with Jkaris´ option with the silica gel pack.

 

Enjoy the Beasts!
