Has anyone removed any of the figures from the card without distroying the card art??? If so how did you do it. The only thing that I can think of that may work is leaving them in a very warm dry place(worked with my Skylanders but they sat for about 6-8 months)

I thought they were on resealable clamshells. Collector friendly and all that.

If you have a pair of nail clippers, you can typically reach in, clip the plastic ties and remove the figure without damage to the product or card.

I think he is talking about that insert which holds the figure...it is glued down to the backer card.

Exactly

If I remove it it will tear the card art

I just cut around the interior insert with an x-acto knife. it leave some plastic on the card...but you can't really see it when the clamshell is closed.

The twist ties on the Robin I repaired were loose enough to slip the figure out without a problem.

Try a hairdryer Kev.... I used to open packs of cards (like Baseball cards) and so as not to tear the wrapper I would use a hair dryer. Might not work, but worth a shot.....
