    Hi to you all and congrats for your board.

    I' m going to buy a G1 commemorative series Hasbro Starscream and I wanted to know something about the quality of the stickers,including the infamous golden eyes :rolleyes:  .

    Are all of them resistant as material and dont' pell off after a while, or do you suggest me to directly apply the reprolabels ones?

    I thank you very much for your help :)  .

    I've had no problem with the stickers over the past decade I've owned the reissue. I wouldn't say its a case for Reprolabels unless you really want to keeo the original sheet intact.

    With regard to the eyes, personally i too a scalpel to the label and cut out each individual eye, rather than the awful eyeband sticker. It looks much better, but is a seriously frustrating little job!

    Hope that helps.

    All right,I'll use the Hasbro stickers then .

    For the eyes ,if I've understood well, I should remove the whole central black section and attacking eyes only, by a tweezer...in this way they should remain stuck to the face very well .
    Just a thing:there is no need to resize eyes just a little,what do you think?

    Sorry for all of these questions,I just want to be sure before proceeding :)  .

    painted eyes? what the hell are you talking about?

    you've nailed it there. just be careful as they'll be tricky to apply, but look so much better when done!

    I have the Takara reissue and I've noticed the midsection stickers don't like to stick to the body - I have to keep pushing them back in place.
