Quoted from ForceFlow:
Yeah, that's a pretty big eye sore that would drastically affect the value of the game.
Thankfully it’s an area of solid colors, not oddball textures and people.
This could be a decent opportunity for OP to also learn color matching and touch ups (as long as willing to do it the right way and not use Sharpies).
My first game DE Simpsons had wear in all the non Mylar major offending areas and I spent a lot of time making that game look so nice with the art, people never questioned it. This HG looks substantially easier to touch up.
