Hey everybody, I was wondering if anyone could tell me the best way to remove
the marker on these Clone Troopers that I recently purchased off eBay.

Thanks,

BrickCollection

Soak or rub with paper towel?

Rub, with a Q-tip.

Yes, this works quite well, be very gentle over printed parts as too much will
begin to take print off.

For general play use, as above, some rubbing alcohol. For display, buy new parts.

Hairspray works wonders on permanent ink. Try it on a printed part you don't
want first though - just to make sure it doesn't pull off the print or damage
the piece.

After all of these replies you have to start wondering why they call it PERMANENT
marker.

Indeed

Apparently, it mostly means the ink is waterproof: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Permanent_marker
(there’s also a “Removal” section in the article).
I guess it’s why marketers are paid the big bucks.

I have had success using a dry-erase marker over the permanent marker - test
it out first on a brick or something you don't care about to see if it
works on these small parts. You color over the perm. marker with the dry erase
marker (like a big circle) so all is covered and then wipe with a cleaning wipe
(Clorox or Lysol) or a damp paper towel.
