    Quick addendum----multiple options for chest insignia background color. Silver, chrome, etc.

    Idea for a new sheet----make a small sheet of just insignias for the whole team. Would have to wait until they're all released to get the shapes and sizes right, but I think it'd sell well. Many people do not want to cut out symbols by hand to fit in the molded-in locations-----but many people DO want insignias there, and little else. So make a sheet of just insignias, that are pre-sized and pre-cut to match the various molded-in locations on the Feral Rex members. (Plus a few normal ones for miscellaneous locations)

    I really think an "insignia only" sheet for this team would do quite well, from what I see people requesting/doing on the forum.

    This goes for future sets, not just this one but have you guys considered doing simpler sets but for a whole group at once. Like say do a set for the complete MMC predaking with just insignias and smaller accent pieces for each bot. This could carry over to say the IDW figures where you do one set for like a wave of 4 figures but there is less stickers per bot. I really loved what you guys did with the animated and prime sets and would rather see something similar in the classics styled figures rather than the more G1 looking stickers a lot of them seem to get. Just my :2c: .

    pls note that there are a few other members who i saw interest for the TF Prime's predacons symbol. I would use it on my Feral Rex, and my Perfect Effect Aranea, and probably my Hex too. Would be nice if you can include at least one for Bovis chest, if not making a whole set of them for various figures. Currently, i have the transparent white reprolabels decepticon emblem, and i like it, but really want to see the other symbol so i can replace it.

    I wholeheartedly agree with David's suggestion to make a set of symbols which perfectly fit the areas made for them. Bovis for example has a really weirdly shaped area on his chest which takes a lot of trimming to somewhat get a symbol in there.

    Once the full set of figures are out, a full sheet of just the specially designed faction symbol stickers would be a great idea.

    I totally hear what you are all saying about a lot less stickers, but there is always going to be a camp of people who only want a couple stickers per set. The problem is that there isn't a large enough group of people who will agree on *which* few stickers to offer in a set to make it feasible to produce. To make everyone happy, I'd literally need to make 20 sets per figure, or sell stickers individually, which would drop the price to a point where I wouldn't be able to pay for the equipment I'm running. There's no perfect solution. At any rate, this is my honest best attempt at a compromise for Bovis, since I almost never redo a set, but this time people hated the set so much I had no choice but to try again.

    ok, this went from "omg, why?" to "i will buy this". The new set enhances the look instead of overdoing it. If this is released I will buy it. The only thing I won't use is the sticker for the knife. To me it makes no sense to have the blade silver and the rest gold since it combines to make Predaking's giant sword. Gold foil wins the day for that part.

    As always, Delta, this is top-notch work. You're very meticulous in your craft and I hope everyone realizes this, even if they don't agree with some of the aesthetics. There's a lot of hard work that goes into this type of production.

    The ab sticker might have looked better if it still had the diamond pattern but other than that it's a win.:thumbs2:  Bought whenever I have the money to buy it after Christmas.

    The new version looks much better! Not overly busy and just a nice upgrade. Sorry for any rude comments on my part. I believe I was having a bad day then lol. No reason to take it out on you.

    Huge Imovement you've really outdone your self this time. I'm glad to see that you chose to re do this set. I would have hated to see you get through half of the feral cons only to restart. Just keep the rest of the feral cons this cohesive and Im sure these sets will hit it out of the park.

    I don't own Not-Tantrum (Nor do I intend to purchase any of MMC's Expensive but nonetheless awesome-looking Third-Party Combiners), but this looks really cool.
    I do however, think whatever it is you have on the side of Bovis's Snout looks wierd.

    Wow, SO much better! Really, the simpler metal plate detail looks fantastic! The new stickers flow with the design of the toy and compliment it, rather than look out of place like the first design.

    I do agree with a number of the posters, when Feral Rex is fully complete, a set of just the Decepticon symbols, made specifically for this set would be a huge winner, IMO.
