    So I've got an encore G1 Omega supreme in the mail, and this guy has a lot of stickers from what I've seen.
    Now, in the past the stickers peeled off of my tf's(and toys in general) in a short time. Outside of painting and clearcoating them in, I was wondering if there was any way to preserve these, and to help them adhere to the plastic better?
    any help would be greatly appreciated.

    If the stickers aren't applied, you could wash down the plastic to remove any residue left from the factory. Just wash, dry, then apply. If they are already applied, your best option is to lightly clearcoat the stickers to preserve them and keep them from peeling.

    I know you aren't really looking at clearcoating, but it does work wonders if you have stickers that are already applied. For long-term use (even if the figure is to be on display), clearcoating is still probably one of the best options. Natural elements, time, dust, etc., all could have a tiny negative impact over the years.

    Good luck with it and I hope you find a solution that works for you, man.
