Is there an optimal approach to opening one of these? I only own one AFA graded figure, purchased that way, and now, four months later, I want to bust him out.

Some pics gone, but the way to do it is still described. Bill (hellhippie) has removed some figures from their acrylic coffins also, so might pm him as he may have some pointers as well.

ive broken a few outta their graded acryllic coffins , get a vise , secure the figure and with a hack saw start sawing near the seam where it was glued . once you get a bit to break off the rest just comes apart easily with your hands , it breaks like a cookie . share some pics once its done cheers
