Try using a simple toothpick with a little thinner. That's what I do when cleaning up those kinds of cases.

Thats what I am currently doing, however the points always end up blunting after about 3-5 uses >_<

Toothpicks work great for me too. My guess is that metal or plastic is more likely to scratch the plastic.

Ah, those annoying Sleeves markings. I use a white paint marker to add details on some of my kits, and I'm planning to do the same for the Rozen Zulu. I use a few layers so I don't use silver as a base, but I guess I'm an amateur painter.
I guess that's true. But we do have all of Kira's suits in RG minus the Strike Freedom which I think is kind of a given considering how popular it is. Then we have the RG Justice that just came out with the MG Aegis. So maybe we will see a RG Aegis, then later an RG Infinite Justice?

Then I think if we get a Seed Destiny Remaster (which I don't see why they wouldn't since it'd give Bandai an excuse to release the episodes on overpriced BluRay which people will buy in Japan..lol), we will see Shinn's suits in RG..

Or am I being too crazy?

RG Impulse? How much of a nightmare will it be then? If they pull of the RG Zeta well, then I think it's is possible for them to do so.

Maybe they can make it a parts-former?

If they can make the RG Zeta, then an RG Impulse is a piece of cake in comparison. The Core Fighter system has been implemented on smaller scales before with other Gundam designs, and the Impulse itself doesn't have a particularly difficult transformation.

Why haven't I thought of that? Thanks for the info. My only worry now is the core fighter. It has small pieces in MG and if they really are going stickerless here, then I that will be an interesting sight to see.

Simple solution: get a hobby knife and re-sharpen the toothpick.

We could get 2..?

1 as a core block and 1 as the actual plane.

RG Aegis won't happen. RG Justice was easy because they reused Freedom's frame, Aegis is more complex (easier than Zeta, granted) plus it's less popular. Really interesting to see where Bandai goes with the RG line from here.

I'd say Providence is next

I want some RG's from the Gundam Project (0083)

RG GP-01, 02, 03, and 04/Gerbera Tetra would be sick

Those, I think, have high chances of getting RG treatment.

A fully transformable core fighter is perfectly doable with the RG series. Look at the RG RX-78-2 Gundam: it has a more complex Core Block system, yet it managed to do so on that scale perfectly without parts swapping, and the Impulse's Core Splendor has a much simpler system. That said, the RG RX-78-2 does include a separate non-transforming Core Block so you can display the Core Fighter separately from the Gundam.

Um.. Is the RG Strike Rogue and RG Strike (Deactivated Mode) worth the money?

They have some flaws so I'd wait for a 2.0 if I where you.
