    Hi guys, as the topic states i really havent seen much info about these guys.
    Has anyone received theirs yet? If so, maybe a small review. I really would like to know the differences in these guys and the originals so maybe some comparison photos also.
    Many regards

    I would also like to apologise for my grammer of 'Theirs' in the title.

    I received a set yesterday, but I have to open it up. Looking at the figure from the outside of the packaging, I can see that the Decepticon logos on the wings AND nose tip have been factory painted on. The nose tip decal doesn't look so hot because you can see the crease down the middle of it.

    Of course, the figures will come with normal stickers if you want to apply over the factory decals.

    Will the nose tip con sticker cover up the tampo? Same with the con wing stickers? Anyone done that?

    I don't have mine yet, but the stickers should cover the tampos. I did that with my Inferno TFC reissue. :) 

    I'll correct your thread title.

    If not, rubbing alcohol should get rid of the factory applied markings.

    Will have to try that. Sometimes tampo's look good, other times they detract from the toys appearance.
