    I'm not sure if there is a better place to link my tutorial. What I have done is document the method I use to remove 20+ year old price stickers from vintage toys. If this helps anyone, it was worth it :)

    I actually love old price stickers. Just makes the figures feel more real. And it helps transport me to an earlier time.

    Part of the charm of boxed tfs (and ways to tell bootlegs some times) is the tag. I would never want to remove them and can't understand why anyone would. Love knowing the history of the figure.

    I understand that side of the argument, but stickers covering box art really annoy me :)  Especially three of them!

    I kind of figured that may be the reasoning after seeing the vid. Man, 7 bucks. Thems was the days.
