    Is cutting off the injection tags bad? I’ve cut of injection tags and flash that have caused the figure to fall over in the past

    I meant to respond sooner. Oops.

    I think the answer is – it depends.

    If there is an almost insignificant piece of flashing that prohibits a figure from standing up, then it is probably not the worst thing in the world if you take an X-Acto knife and shave it off.

    However, most of the injection tags that are highlighted on UofM are pretty significant. I would hope that collectors don’t cut them off because they are (hopefully) interesting to many collectors.

    Personally I think they are especially because they not only made it out of the factory with the tag, but also survived a child not cutting it off.
