    I use Goo Gone. Can be found in Walmart and other such stores. It is kinda oily so be sure to wash your figs with soap and water after.

    Lighter fluid "it" Not oily and leaves no residu

    Not being a pro, I'll go with my experience.
    With Q-Tip that's been soacked in lighter fluid, gently rub the sticker(only the sticker) for 5 seconds. When sticker has absorbed the fluid, the glue should easely let go the sticker. Remove the remaining glue by doing the Q-Tip rub and use a Kleenex to clean. Try it on something you don't mind scapping but you'll see that it is very easy. Do not rub too much on painted areas, lighter fluid is soft on plastic but you never know the chemical reaction with paints.
    Good luck

    Anyways, I think they're are no painted parts on Predacons.

    WD-40. But then again you get an oily surface that needs washed. Try the lighter fluid first.
