I have a question for my fellow collectors out there. My mother got me the reissue G1 Optimus Prime a while back. The one the comes with the More Than Meets The Eye 3 part dvd and reprint of Marvel Comics Transformers #1. I left it in package and in the shipping box and haven no plans of opening it ever really. Not for financial gain just as a keepsake from my mom. Something told me to check it out today and press the button on the sound box. I did and nothing happened which means more than likely batteries are dead. Now I am worried a bit about Battery Leaking into the packaging and damaging the box and or figure. I there any way I can remove or replace the batteries without doing too much damage? I don't know much about battery leaking but I would rather not open it unless I have to.
