    Got my latest set of street stickers. This one is truly awesome!

    I couldn't resist cutting that nice Silverstreak logo and put it on the rear window :p

    None of those manufacturers are real are they?

    I see they use names and fonts similar to the real manufacturers to avoid having to be associated with the real companies...and for some reason it makes the car appear very "knock-offish."

    The looks are fine...its just the names that bug the crap out of me...

    I think they did something similar with the sticker set for Camshaft. They used the GTS logo from a Toyota Celica on the RSX...where there is no such GTS model. Weird.

    Looks good though...just reminds me of one of those Korean Alternator KO's you see on e-Bay with the race-inspired decos.

    Thanks!


    The smaller logos are fine IMO . at first glance you see the big Subaru and HKC logos . SEBOT and Autobotics aren't horrible names, either. Delta Graf-x is a nice way for delta to put a signature on his work.
    Besides, Hasbro used fake brands on its ALT tires and on Decepticharge. So it's not entirely based on KOs.


    the words and fake brand names on the chinese KOs are pretty bad, much worse than this. The one I wanted to get most was the white and red Viper, but it says WINNER everywhere... kinda bugged me :p

    I like the look of the carbon fiber hood, but it should have been on the whole hood IMO. Besides that it's a nice little racer

    It shouldn't... unless you actually own a set of Cybertronian Radials... Or have giant robots running around your neighborhood for that matter.

    Considering this is still very much a world of fiction some bending of elements within that world should be allowable. After all, who's to say the in the Transformer realm these companies can't exist?

    This I can agree with since it made the figure look like the kid in school with the "I'm Special" sticker.
