    I bought a sticker sheet of Deceptiocn symbols and I want to put one on each of Classics Starscreams wings. Should I put them on upside down or right side up when he is in robot mode? Which way looks better?

    This has honestly always bugged me. I put them so they are "right side up" in bot mode, but all pre-applied labels put them upside down - I'm looking at you US MP Starscream :redface2:

    I put them upside down so he looks nicer in jet mode, which I always thought was SS's best feature. Or the only good one, really. I don't mind them upside down in robot form as they don't really add tho the robot form either way.

    Animated SS has it best, though. Rightside in both modes.

    I like right side up but only because I like the orientation in jet mode.

    I've always preferred them right side up. Upside down looks moronic.

    You know the direction a jet flies in? The face of the faction symbol points the OTHER way. :crazy:

    Upside down for cartoon accuracy!

    Actually, this is something I thought about lately, because the Encore Skywarp/Thundercracker set have the symbol tampographed on the way the G1 sticker sheet tells you to do it (right side up in robot mode.) But I've got the TFC reissue Starscream in the anime colours, which has the tampo'd symbols on upside down in robot mode, to match the cartoon... so if I buy the Encore seekers to go with him, they won't match! I find this really annoying. :(

    They come with regular sticker sheets though. Put the stickers over the tampos.
