That Abominus torso is pretty much everything I wanted from a PotP Abominus torso, except for the stickers. I'm pleased they went with toy colors. Hopefully another set will come out for those who were hoping for toon.
Yeah, these will take forever to hit my area.
Wow, even I'm not that rude. LOL
Because sometimes they're misaligned, bad, or just about to tear off as soon as you get the figure.
Anyways, ABOMINUS HAS HIS ANTENNAS!!! YEEEEESSSSS!!!! BUT HE HAS VISOR INSTEAD OF PUPILS.... eh.
Yeah, stickers rule. Just not these stickers.
My favorite part about opening new toys as a kid: stickers.
Yeah, at this point I wouldn't be surprised if Hasbro toy dev's have a side deal with these 3P companies and/or former Hasbro employee's to get them ahead of the release by sending them blueprints of the flaws they can profit off of.
5 bidders on that elita-1 nearly $60.
Really ? The stickers never cared that much for them. I got the hasbro roadbuster btw and the whirl. Stickers with them. Still not bad but just too many. Also those sheets have more quality then what they give with Grimlock. Those stickers are flimsy. They started this with TR and keep doing this.
I gues 10 housewives per table applying stickers is cheaper than having tempographs.
Price keeps going up while budget keeps dropping.
My problem with the stickers it's that they're just bad, badly applied, and so easy to pull off form the figure.
Which is why for me, I have to handle my Transformers Gently.
close enough. I'd just like knees facing the right direction :c
The stickers for Thrilling 30 Metroplex, Roadbuster and Whirl were okay. Not a huge fan of them, but I can accept them.
Titans Return stickers are terrible.
One big reason. Because there is a difference between paper stickers and foil stickers.
"aren't coming off easily"? Bullcorn. They are thin, they are often miscut and misapplied. They are coming right off. Heck Rodimus even puts a sticker right over a hinge just in case you had any illusions of keeping him in perfect shape. On top of that they're reflective foil, which (in my opinion of course) stands out like a sore thumb when displaying next to figures that have their details painted on. I think it looks cheap, and.. well.. the PotP toys aren't cheap.
I love the PotP line but these stickers are baffling and unfortunate. I do agree that they compare favorably to arms micron stickers, but that's not saying much at all.
It irritates me that I'm hoping for a scenario in which this is a cynical play to get me to buy the same figures twice when Hasbro (or Takara, or Hasbro Asia) releases them again later with a higher price tag and a "premium" deco, but here we are.
I also liked how all three of those had their stickers on a separate sheet that you had to apply for yourself, which is an annoying process but at least if one was put on crooked or got bent up it was on you. Having the factory slap them on and having them still come out messed up only makes things worse.
You know whats cheaper then 10 housewives applying the stickers for you? Zero housewives doing it and just giving us the stickersheet to apply the stickers.
To be honest this would be much better because now we can decide to put the stickers on and which we like to apply but Hasbro is probably too scared to do that because little Bob might eat them instead of applying them onto his figure.
Honestly I\'m not fond of these stickers at all. While they give details, they are quite frankly piss poor quality. Hell yeah I\'d take the G1 stickers. Not only do you have to option of not putting them on, they sere a better quality than these.
And it seems like when I look into reprolabels, they cost more than the figures I\'d be putting them on.
Apparently all the voyager class figures will have stickers now.
So much for me getting Inferno.
Please save us Takara.
So much hate for stickers in this thread. Aside from poor placement (looking at you Overlord) they don’t really bother me, I actually quite like Blitzwing’s.
