    I just bought a lot of G1 dinobots off ebay, i also bought all new reprolabel for them, i should have them in about a week, what would be the best way to restore them to pristine condition, ie cleaning them up and removing hand grease gunk and whatnot. I wanna make them look brand new

    soap first, applied with a toothbrush.

    You're gonna remove all the sticker I am guessing...
    You'll wanna use a light (70%) alcohol, and if that doesn't work bump it up to 91%.

    Alcohol will also remove any oil type substances like oil/grease/adhesive. Keep the alcohol away from the painted areas (though there aren't many)

    I too have a dinobot restoration project, it's surprising what you can find on the beya.
