They've been putting adhesive on them lately to keep us from the goodies inside. I use a dremel and cut along the seam of the blaster, but this looks terrible. You could try finding a solvent. I'm pretty sure it's just model glue.

Just take a straight bladed knife or flat-head screwdriver down the seam nice and slow.

Because calling a nerfer a nerd is like calling water wet.

I used a razor blade, but if you go that route, proceed extremely carefuly. I cut myself 6 times trying to open mine.

WTF, are you in Tony Stark's basement!?'

I have also used a razor blade. Make sure that all blades you use are sharp. Also, go nice and slow, there is no need to rush the process and end up cutting yourself.

Alright, so don't go and burn the house down, but grab yourself a a sharp razor like everyone said, heat that baby up till she's red hot, and then try cutting it. Move fairly quickly, and don't breathe the vapors. You'll find that your knife will cut much more smoothly and much more easily like this. Heat it up again when the blade cools.
Or you can freeze the shell,then dip it in boiling water a few times. This will weaken the bond,because the glue and plastic expand and contract at different speeds.

Make sure to wear proper hand protection when using hot blades. It burns you.
