    • I use thin, needle-nose pliers, rotating them against R2’s legs. I didn’t clamp them down at all. Still, it took awhile to get the glue to break free.

  1. Was the gold strip at the nose of the X-wing painted on by the consumer, the manufacturer, or was it a sticker placed on? I’ve come across this set but mine doesn’t have the gold squadron markings on it. Mine also has the more white ish R2 rather than the silvery one.
