    why is it that armorhide gets an autobot logo on his gun? wtf....and theres tons more that get it on their back, or someplace else...why is that? i know with armorhide, putting it on the fron of the grill wouldnt work, cuz then itd be upside down, but what about making a small flipping panel like alt hound to hide the decal....and hardtop, his is hidden in robot mode...but swindle has it hidden in car mode, which is so much better...helps to add to the robots in disguise theory....agh...why?

    Wasn't there a TF that had his faction symbol on his crotch? or worse yet, a rubsign.

    All four Clone Transformers (Pounce, Wingspan, Cloudraker and Fastlane) have their faction symbol there.

    Personally not a fan of faction logos at all. I think they're gaudy and often clash with the overall scheme. I usually take them off, though the molded ones are stuck being there.

    Well you see why I think they ruined the Car Robo line and completely forget abotu the Robots in Disguise deal with RiD, extra symbols not needed.

    Anyway, I thought this would be something like folk who are Non transfans using it in some weird way like Graphitti or something at first untill I read it.

    The new minicons have them in some pretty retarded places; a lot of the Autobot and Decepticon symbols are just sprayed right over the molded minicon symbol.

    That's why I end up putting reprolabels on mine in more appropriate places.

    Somehow I had never noticed that....thanks a lot! Now, every time I look at my Blaster, all kinds of horrible images will spring to mind.

    Autobot & Decepticon symbols over all! Take THAT Beasts and Minicons! Seriously though, I too use Reprolabels for odd situations. I still think fans lost a little something with factory applied labels. It used to take a fair amount of skill to properly apply a label sheet. Now for the most part, it's a lost art. :(

    Yeah. Putting the stickers on was half the fun of getting a new Transformer, back in the day.
