I've de-globbed several dies using heat, acid and/or a chemical called Decap.

On another front, Mattel Armor Battle has a Hitachi HD38133 28-pin DIP. Anyone have info on it? The closest I could find is HD38702/HMCS42, but the pinout is different. The PCB has jumpers for TANK/SUB, so Sub Chase probably also uses it.
