What's the best way to remove the sticker residue when you pull a price tag off a figure bubble?
Negotiation's over. Sentence is death.

There is a really good product you ca nget at any Kmart Wlamart. Hardware store called GOO Gone. Works great! I have also heard you can use penaut buter or mayonase because the vegetable oil in them will disolve the glue. Goo Gone will work for sure and not expensive either.

I also use GooGone.
But be prepaired to let the Figure air out.
GooGone has a very strong smell. You will get it on your hands using it and smell it for hours unless your very careful.

Take you a q tip and some 3m Adhesive Remover. Works good on bubbles and cards. Just take very extra care when doing the cards

depends on how much time you have.. but zippo lighter fluid works well (dont use near an open flame - and dont let it near the bubble)
I used to use it for getting hot wheels out of the package and back in without any issues (customizing and other various reasons)

goo gone is like lighter fluid,i would be cafeful using it on plastics. aswell as super glue which causes damage to plastic. some people argue that super glue or model glue doesnt damage but it does discolor and slightly melt plastic

a heat gun applied from a distance waving it back and forth. it softens the glue again, and makes the sticker easily removable. but be very careful, too much heat will melt the bubble or indent it.
