    I bought a KO Walgreens Superion and saw that it was missing a ton of stickers and a few paint apps. So in short I got to work:
    The pics won't show much because most of you already know what superion is supposed to look like but, to put it in perspective, I only did the stickers you see from the front of bot mode otherwise it would have taken forever to get everyhting done... (it took 4 hours alone to snatch pictures, edit, resize, print, cover in glossy clear tape, cut out, and put all 17 stickers and paint apps in the proper place.)
    So, my KO superion has KO stickers and since his hands were loose there is paper jammed into the slots so they would stay put. lol.

    The legs took the longest because all the pictures I could find of them were front angles of the bots themselves, so what I had to do was get the autobot symbol, the background color, and the symbols to the sides. The other stickers were easy, but getting hte right size was pretty time consuming too.

    For those of you who have the KO, can you spot the differences???

    That's cool Bobby! It's cool to see that someone has has some ideas for some of the KO's good job they turned out just like the G1 version.

    yupp, lol. What I literally do is go to seibertron, find head on body shots where the stickers I need are, and if the sticker is all bent out of shape, I go to reprolables, find a sticker position chart, use MS-Word + MS-Paint and I've got some free KO reprolables. But they do not have the reflective mirrored surface, just a glossy one. but that doesn't bother me. :)

    How does the KO' Superion's "joints" hold up? I remember a few of my combiners had broken heads after a while.

    the joints are fine... for now. as far as I can tell, but his hip section isn't properly aligned and sometimes he leans forward
