    I just saw the GiG Combaticon commercial on YouTube. It features a stop motion animation of the Combaticons merging into Bruticus. At :14, you see a demonstration of how to rub the symbol to reveal the allegiance of the figure. The sticker is cut like the RTS versions without the grey square background.

    My Combaticons have the traditional rubsigns. Has anyone seen this version in person?

    The scenes before show it being smaller. Guess they switched to a bigger one that demonstrated it better.

    I was referring to this scene. I'm aware that the figures have the traditional rubsigns in the rest of the commercial.

    I was refering to the same shot.

    look at the shade of grey inside the square area, its a different shade then the reat of the chest shield.

    You're right. The greys are very similar. I was looking at the square as molded detail on the chest shield since the symbol is so small compared to a normal rubsign.

    Grey square present or not, that's still a bit interesting to see it so big. Maybe they had some kind of uncut sheet of rubsigns to hand and just chopped one out with a bigger surround.
