I have not tried, but I've heard an interesting method suggested here. Hold just the emitter with tweezers, while heating the star from underneath with a heat gun or cigarette lighter. When the solder melts, the star falls off.

troutie did it recently and posted an amusing video of the process as well. I'm not sure what thread it was on but if you scan through the posts I'm sure you'll find it. Either that or some helpful soul might be able to point you in the right direction.
