    When I first got my CW Optimus Prime I was disappointed with how bland he looked, specially the unpainted windows. He also had a chip off the paint on his front windshield which is all I could see when I looked at him (moley moley moley).

    I was thinking I could paint it but then I'd have to find the right color or just paint all the windows...at that point might as well paint the whole thing with details...but my painting skills aren't that great...and it would be a long project for me.

    I saw that there was Reprolabels for him, which would be perfect to cover the chip and add some details all over. But I didn't like the black windows for him. I was staying away from Reprolabels because stickers on toys in my past always ended up bad.

    After getting Motormaster, Battle Core Optimus Prime and UW Grand Scourge, I found that they all suffered from the same window problems as Optimus. So I went back to looking at Reprolabels, read up on the quality and found that they are much better than old stickers.

    I found they had lots of new options for BC Optimus, unfortunately nothing for UW Grand Scourge. I formulated a plan of attack and ordered a bunch. I got a CW Optimus Prime set, a CW Motormaster set, two CW Nova Prime sets, two CW Ultra Magnus sets (second one ordered by accident), silver backed Autobot/Decepticon symbols, and Compendium Symbols. Here are my results:

    CW Optimus Prime:
    - I spray painted the feet blue (I'll have to touch them up cause I chipped it while putting the stickers before waiting 7 days for the paint to be chip resistant...)
    - I used the Optimus Prime set for everything but the black windows, black shoulder symbols, silver abs, yellow feet grills and red truck visor (I didn't like the way it looks over the molded rivets). I cut out the yellow arrows from the black for the forearms.
    - I used the Ultra Magnus set for the windows and the silver feet grills (I was going to use the yellow ones but since I accidentally got a second UM set, I decided to go with the silver). I also cut out the white border around the gas tanks on the legs.
    - I used the Nova Prime set's white windshield separators on the red Optimus sheet to cut out some red ones (could have used UM's ones but one was bigger than the other...). For some reason they never made red ones for Optimus. Also used the gold grill badge.
    - I cut an Autobot symbol in half to put on the combined mode's chest.

    CW Nova Prime:
    - I used the Nova Prime set for everything but the white truck visor (same as Optimus). I put the "L" shaped stickers on the legs to add extra details instead of on the leg flaps I don't use. I also used a second triangle on Nova's head crest.
    - I used the Ancient Transformer symbol from the Compendium sheet on the top of the cab.

    UW Grand Scourge:
    - I used the Nova Prime set for the cab windows (didn't cover the red back ones), they weren't all painted and they were more blue than teal. Also used the headlights, small teal taillights, gold grill badge, truck and combiner details. I also cut out the grey strip for the arms.
    - I used the Ultra Magnus set for the silver feet grills and small red taillights.
    - I used the Optimus Prime set for the black shoulder symbols to cover the pins.
    - I used the Motormaster set's second Decepticon symbol for the combined mode's chest.
    - I used the Unicron symbol from the Compendium sheet on the top of the cab, and the silver Decepticon and Combatron symbols for the shoulders.

    CW Motormaster:
    - I used the Motormaster set for everything but the crotch sticker because I use the PE upgrade.

    Let me know what you guys think!
