    In the G1 cartoon, Mirage rips off a Decepticon emblem. As he holds it in his hand and drops the emblem, the emblem look's like a cheap cloth badge.

    Yet, in another episode when Skyfire changes from Decepticon to Autobot, he also rips off the Decepticon cloth badge, but then holds what look's like a nicer magnetic Autobot emblem that he snaps onto his chest.

    Does this show how cheap the Decepticons are? I think so! LOL!

    :lol  Well, they are evil. Being cheap-asses would probably be on the memo.

    I'm somewhat wondering if this was part of G1's animation errors, or if this was done deliberately to show how cheap them evil bastards are. LOL!

    Um...low Energon to fuel the Con's economy? Either that, or Megatron bought a bunch of KO badges on eBay.

    Really it's just mismanagement of resources. Someone is Swindling Decepticon funds...
