    Is it possible (and easy) to remove the clear chest piece of the figure so I can put the Decepticon sticker under it?

    I was trying to a way to do it but it seems I have to open the back of the figure.

    Thanks.

    You do, IIRC. Some body posted a 'how to' a while back.

    Courtesy of Maverick Hunter Christian:

    Unscrew the back, use something long and poky to pop out the clear buttons holding the piece in place. Do not hurry, do not use more force than needed or you will crack the chest plate. I have found that it helps to use an exacto knife to cut away a little of the excess clear before pushing it out. Take your time and it's not too bad.

    I didn't even unscrew the back. I used a exacto knife to push the clear tabs. It pops right back in. Looks great too.

    No link that I ever saw, but it's pretty clear once you open it which spot you're pushing. If you're bold, you can try the midnightbliss way, but I was too scared that levering it would crack the plastic or scratch the paint.

    A total success! Thanks a lot. I didn't have to open it and it was easier than I thought. The left tab was harder but it was worth the effort. I did the same to one of my friend's Jet Vehicon's and both look great now.

    I was so paranoid of breaking my AM regular Vehicon that I just pushed it out enough to where I could slip the sticker under with my exacto knife.

    It lined up okay, but all that effort I don't think was really worth the trouble...

    I think my Jet Vehicons are just going to get symbols on their shoulders, like army patches the soldiers wear.
