    Hey guys. I'd like to remove the yellow stripe from my Henkei Ironhide. I liked the idea of it but it's annoyingly uneven and I think the toy would look better without it. However, I don't want to make matters worse and completely ruin him.

    What can I use to remove the stripe? Will the plastic be affected?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks, RL. I read your tutorial. Does the isopropyl alcohol affect the plastic? You would suggest soaking the piece rather than just applying the alcohol and rubbing the paint off?

    you can try it that way first, but sometimes a paint ap is too solid to come off that easy. I must say that a lot of the classics/universe toys' paint aps come off easily though.
