Lately I've been thinking about ordering a variety of the Shock Trooper Armors to play around with and try to develop some new figs. But some of the colors I want only come with printing, which, while cool, doesn't always fit the feel that I'm going for. Has anyone tried anything to remove some or all of the printing from any BF items? Would Brasso do the job? I just figure I'd ask before I order them so I can try to plan out the full order before I place it.

So, I figure I'll come back and see if anyone can answer this yet. I'm probably just going to put in an order of one of each Shock Trooper armor type regardless, and then I can find out for myself and post the results here.

You can definitely try brasso, A lot of people have used that to remove printing from TLC products. I believe that will work on Brickforge pieces as well.

If you don't have Brasso try something like Gojo. You need a 'gentle' abrasive to rub over the plastic - that will clean off the print, but Not scratch up your pieces.
I haven't removed any BF prints, but have many of the TLCs; I would imagine it is similar. Be sure to test it out on a piece you plan to paint first.

Toothpaste. Or a pencil eraser. As long as it's a relatively flat surface, and not down in cracks or somesuch.
