Quick question, are the suits of armor removable from CTVT's Super Knights without damaging the armor?

No. They are glued. But you might be able to do it if you try hard enough.

The glue can be brittle and easily snapped tho. On my set the armor is loose on one of the figures due to weak glueing. Yes, if you try hard enough and gently enough, I believe you could remove the armor without damage. Do note that CTVT tends to put "CTVT" in rather obvious places on each piece.

I got it off (with it intact) by slowing working a razor blade through the seams...

Mine came off without issue also. It separated easily, and I use the belt and shoulder plates to hold it all together on the new figure. No glue needed and Displays nicely.

So if the armor needs to be cut open then it isn't able to be "snapped" back on.

I'm glad someone brought this up, since I'd just assumed they'd be removable - which would have been an unpleasant surprise as I'd planned on getting a couple and putting them on EMCE bodies.

The originals don't snap on and off either. They are glued and have to be separated too. The CTVT are easy to separate. Mine came right apart with little effort.

That was my plan as well. But if the armor isn't able to snapped back in place I am leary of buying a set.
