    Anybody know how to get the sticker goo off of old figures, without damaging the surface?? I just got some fists to complete my Metroplex and cleaned him up nice with soap, water and a toothbrush and plan on taking off all the decals and replacing them with a set from reprolabels to bring him back to his old glory. Any tips would help, thanks!

    I'd make sure to use a citrus based product rather than a petrolium base one, as to not risk the plastic getting foggy. I cannot remember off the top of my head, but I know between Goof Off and Goo Gone that one is pet. and the other is citrus.

    Better safe than sorry.

    I would also test a part that is hidden to avoid any uneeded damage.
