What is the best way to remove 50 year old paint from Tudor figures without affecting the plastic figure itself?

Probably the most common methed (and the one I use) is to soak the figures in Break Fluid,Usually over night and then rinse in soap and water. Also use a stiff brush (old toothbrush) to remove any remaing paint.  Oven Cleaner is another method but heard it can melt the figures if left too long.

Go to Dollar General and pick up a product called LA Totally awesome.  Fill a jar with the liquid and drop the figures in and let soak until the paint melts off.  rince in clear water afterward, figures should look clean and ready for new paint.  I've left figures in the solution for months and no harm to them.
