Thanks, Matthew. I was able to get my Sagat figure open last night by just simply applying a little pressure with a pair of pliers. I guess the pressure just cracked the seal made my the glue used at the factory, 'cause the sucker just poped right open, and left no damage to the body. If this method won't work on Storm Shadow, then I'll go with the razor. Thanks again for the advice! This is what this group is all about.
