    I just got this new set today. Opening the cardboard set I saw an ugly security sticker inside on the cardboard area! Don’t let it fool you! It looked like it could be easily removed and I was successful to remove half of it and was quite happy but the disaster happened right at the end, removing part of the inside cover! My joy was short-lived! Who are the geniuses who do this? I mean they really deserve the noble prize of intelligence. Of all the places, they stick it on the cardboard part! They could have easily put it on the hard transparent plastic part and it could have been removed easily! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Sorry to hear about your problem with the security sticker. Sometimes I think the studios take sinister pride in placing them to inflict the most damage to the packaging.

    Luckily mine was on the proof of purchase tabs so I could, if I wanted to, just pull of the tabs. But I always leave the security stickers there in fear of it ripping something, finding the sticker less objectionable than ripped cardboard.
