    I notice quite a few people have had problems removing the model of Smeagol from the LOTR box set.
    I just recieved mine and having looked at it I had a go at steaming the bottom of the box open over a kettle.
    I may have just been lucky with mine but it only took a minute and I was able to open the bottom of the package without any real damage.

    Might be worth a go?
    Please be careful though when using the kettle!

    Also, could everyone use round ended scissors, because scissors can be dangerous.

    Make sure you have another adult close by, just in case of any problems.

    TORn posted a link to this page which gives detailed suggestions for performing the delicate task of removing the model ... sadly the pictures show the guy who did it didn't bother about damaging the box. :)

    That TORn page basically says:

    Step 1: Destroy box
    Step 2: Remove Smeagol


    Remember, when 'Extracting a Smeagol' please use plenty of lubricant!

    You cannot, this is for teh box set only, you can get gollum, ie angry smeagol, but they decided to give this one away.

    It says on the Gollum DVD!
