Removing zeugo 1st edition figures from bases.

Postby Donegal Subbuteo » 22 Nov 2016, 09:50

Is there a tip on how to get these out? They seem to be impossible to budge. Are they glued?

Have I heard before about putting them into hot/warm water?

Haven't tried anything yet for fear of damaging them. I might contact astrobase.it or subbuteoworld.
