Guests on a tour a couple of weeks ago will recall the excitement of spotting a curious new Space Invader sticker.
Over a classic Union flag invader was the legend “Reactivation Team UK” and the motto #protect_them. A little bit of digging resulted in finding 5 Space Invaders which have been “reborn”, in other words they are old classics which had disappeared from their locations due to the ravages of time, authority, disgruntled property owners or plain old sticky fingered fans.
More information and photographs is on the Graffoto blog

UPDATE (Dec 2016) – despite the presence of a reactivation sticker, LDN_027 at Bayfield Road is not a reactivated Invader, also LDN_028 was activated by the French team. Also, the Union Flag Invader was not reactivated by the UK Reactivation Team.
