    It's an easy question.

    Do you like the rubsigns or the faction symbols on your toys?

    I personally like the rubsigns.

    Rubsign for nostalgia, faction for practicality (preferably embossed or metallic).

    Faction symbol. Rubsigns on the robots' crotches will make me look strange.

    Neither. I prefer unmarked Bots and Cons.

    I love rubsigns, but then I started in G1. I just like how it adds to the "disguise" part of robots in disguise.

    Nothing against faction symbols and I think they're cool in bot mode, but if I only get one then it's rubsign all the way.

    The rub signs never did anything for me even back in the day when they first appeared. It was more of an authentication gimmick than anything else.

    Rub signs have a special place waiting for them in Hell.

    Rubsigns only belong on Battle Beasts.

    Why all the hate for rubsigns?

    Why all the love for them? Most times they were stuck where a proper faction symbol belonged instead.

    Faction symbol. I find the concept of rubsigns stupid.

    I like rubsigns on somewhat hidden places, though.

    I like both, but I believe faction symbols look better than rubs.

    Rub signs = not accurate. Faction symbols = show accurate. So faction symbols win.
