    Just finally got around to ordering the #16 Encore Combaticon set and was wondering if the stickers come pre-applied like they did with the Seacons from last year?
    Am certainly hoping not as several of the stickers on Piranacon were so crooked that I ended up ordering a replacement set to fix him.

    Tampod Decepticon logos, otherwise, i'm fairly sure it's a separate sheet.

    Shmax shows a sticker sheet is included, so looks like not pre-applied.

    Awesome. Thanks.
    Why the hell they didn't do this for the Seacon set I'll never know.

    Especially since the some of the stickers looks like they were applied by drunk workers.

    Hasbro VS TakaraTomy. Hasbro's reissues lately (Perceptor, Insecticons, Seacons) have the stickers preapplied. TakaraTomy does not do that.

    That's interesting.

    I'd figure that it would cost Hasbro more to spend the time/labor applying the decals rather than just including a sticker sheet like TakaraTomy.

    Maybe there is one person at Hasbro that LOVES applying stickers. After about 2,000 toys, I'd be wonky too.....

    Heheheh.

    I don't mind that Hasbro preapplies stickers, I just wish the damn things would stick better than they do. No sense in saving me the time it takes to apply them when I have to reapply them anyways after re-stickying them.

    That's not entirely true. TFC Perceptor came stickered. If I remember correctly so did Blaster. Neither Takara or Hasbro Insecticons come with stickers pre-applied.

    This is true, but did the originals too? As they don't have a great many stickers, and there was also the preapplied stickers featured on G1 toys.
