Is it possible to remove the power 100 logo off of the power 100 controller to place on a controller in better condition? has anyone tried this and have any results or information on how it goes?

It does look very fragile so i was thinking heat it up with a hair dryer to soften the adhesive and use a thin fishing line to pull back and forth to slowly cut through the adhesive?

any info or anyone got any results please lemme know thanks!
I've personally never messed with the sticker, but I know other collectors who have attempted to "lift + reseat/readjust" the sticker and they have all failed due to a couple of things. Firstly, the sticker itself is relatively fragile and has a slight "lift" to it... the best way I can describe it is that it's sort of a thick 3D sticker. That means as soon as someone tries to lift up a corer of it, you risk BENDING and causing a big crease to the sticker which would pretty much ruin it.

Then there is the adhesive that was used to glue on the sticker - it seems to be some sort of industrial grade glue and not easily dissolved. Then again, I've never tried to attack it with Goo Gone or other chemicals or heat, so I can't say for certain.

My advice: if you're thinking about buying a NP100 controller for cheap due to the sticker being misaligned or crooked and you think it's going to bother you - it's not worth the risk and I'd save up more money and purchase a NP100 with a straight sticker in the condition that you want. But if you're willing to get your hands dirty and attempt the re-alignment of the sticker... let us know the results!
