Double check if it's rusting or tarnishing. If it's rusting, I'm not sure what there is to do. If it's tarnishing, just take some polish to it to just clean the affected area per the polish instructions.

A couple of things. Play and transform them every so often, but not roughly. I find this helps keep any dust build up down to a minimum. Also try getting some sort of display case if you can afford it and put them in there.

Try softening it up with anything that's used to remove sticky residue from things, then peeling the sticker off...again, this is a guess, so use this advice with some judgement..

with stickers i always find an old (clean) soft cotton t-shirt is great if you just gently rub it (with a little bit of pressure) as it makes the residue cling to the t-shirt
