    nope..I move them, though. I moved Starscream's onto his back. And I also added rubsigns to Megatron, and 2-pack Megatron and Prime.

    Same here. Didn't remove them, but moved them into non-obtrusive places.

    Nope.

    Although Grimlock's is threatening to get bumped off accidentally.

    I don't like rubsigns, but I don't get rid of them. I just try to move them somewhere less obvious.

    No. I would have liked some regular symbols in addition to rubsigns though.

    Sometimes, I move them. It depends on the figure.

    I haven't taken to totally remvoving them, yet. I was always kind of ambivilent towards rubsigns, but Classics is starting to make me really dislike them. I don't like having to decal brand new figures. Rub signs are no replacement for real faction symbols.

    I too need to get actual faction symbols for my Classics collection. As for rubsigns, I leave 'em alone, but Bumblebee lost his. It fell off and disappeared.

    I usually move them since it may not be like G1, but I really liked what early BW did with rubsigns being their spark and not in plain site.

    I've only got a couple of Primes so far, and I haven't taken the sign off the original. I have from the second one though, since I'm modding it, and it'd be silly to leave an Autobot rubsign on a Decepticon.
    When he's finished, though, he will be getting a spanking new Reprolabels Decepticon rubsign.

    my 10 year old cousin got a Grimlock for Christmas (I was jealous I didnt get one!) and I told him about how, when I was a kid, you "didnt know" what side the figure was on until you rubbed the sign. He thought that was the coolest part of the toy!

    Hell no. I have had to move the one on my Prime and my son's Prime, however. They were both crooked. My boy's was actually hanging off a little. I shifted them so they were straight and not going to be pulled off accidentally.

    No way. I prefer them to faction insignias. Something I never understood was how they could be a ROBOT IN DISGUISE with a ten foot fucking symbal on their hood. Although Hot Rod does look a little weird since I'm used to there being an insignia in the middle of his flames.
