The only thing I can personally think of - besides the fact that a un-denting a bubble depends on a load of factors which are all significant to know beforehand - is this:

Try to warm up the bubble a bit since warm plastic is more flexible than cold or room temperature one and with some kind of air-sucking gadget carefully suck on the bubble and even more carefully try to pull it back out to then somehow try to fixate it in its cooler, room temperature state. I don't know what your beast wars bubble is like but those thoughts are based on the regular 80ies/90ies tmnt toy figure bubbles.

Looking at the pictures I'd say this is gonna be a tough job, maybe try first on some old bubbles you don't need anymore or similar.

I was thinking of just injecting it with air with a syringe!

hahahaa

That could also be one way to reach your goal, no doubt. Not with a syringe though and fixing possible other air leaks while maintaining a certain pressure is something I personally consider as difficult.
