    3 areas for Smokescreen - a lot of blue for his shoulders, nascar door numbers for a proper modern look, and stickers for the chest/front bumper area as he should have blue there and does not. oh, green waist stickers. I guess that's four things :p

    I actually like the Cyclonus stickers. I'll admit the shoulder and wing stickers work better on the original G1 Cyclonus, and not so much here, but that's not your fault.

    This is a different Cyclonus (same character, but definitely a different design from the original...they're like polar opposites...) and you can't work miracles.

    The rest of Cyclonus and Nightstick, however...oh yeah.

    Oh and be glad you made the shoulder and wing stickers, because you and I both know that as soon as that sheet hit the market sans shoulder and wing stickers, you'd have had people crawling out of the woodwork goin' "Can you make 'em? Where are they?! WHY HAVE YOU DONE ME WRONG WITH YOUR INCOMPLETENESS!" etc... etc...

    Brawn's stickers look nice as well.

    The rest, not my cup of tea, seeing as I don't collect anything Wreckers, nor do I collect G1, period.

    :lol  a white roof sticker for Ratchet probably WOULD sell pretty well if it was properly color-matched.

    That's a start... I think he'd also need some black on his forearms, all that red gets gaudy...
    And I'm pondering... What about stickers to make it overall look more modern?
    There's actually a 350Z being used for racing in very Smokescreen-esque colors:

    I like the Cyclonus stickers, Delta. Definitely gives it the G1 toy feel, and adds some nice color accents to the figure. Also has kind of a neat "retro sci fi" vibe to it, which as a Trekkie I dig. I'll probably pick up a set of those if you end up putting them up for sale.

    Tigertracks is interesting as well. Not sure I want to attempt a Lambo Bros. part-swap to make it worthwhile (I've heard the pin removal is a pain) but if I did I would likely deco it with those.

    Crosses for Ratchet's shoulders are a good idea.... they would also cover up those ugly screws. The only hard part is getting them to work with the relief sculpting of the shoulder pieces. I wonder if you could do them as multi-part stickers to work with the sculpt and minimize that lumpy "bumps under stickers" look. As for other Ratchet stickers, what about some ambulance decals? Or a backwards ambulance logo for his hood? Maybe a dark silver/grey sticker to cover his red head crest for more cartoon accuracy?

    Patriot's roof is off-looking, but I love Tigertrack!

    Maybe with a Red cross on that white sticker or some sort of uniformed or autobot doctored EMS emblem for the hood.

    Wow, I REALLY like that Canadian Patriot set. Were you thinking a set of 3 (not sure how practical that'd be), individual releases, or just the most popular?

    We almost had one, but ran out of time :(  If the first three seem to be wanted, we'll probably do another 3. If so, a UK version is a sure thing.
