Would anyone want them back?
rubsigns on G1=Awesome.
Rubsigns on new TF's=Suckage maximus....
I am glad they are gone ...they need to stay gone...
I for one like rubsigns, and if Hasbro could incorperate them back into the Classics/Universe line that would be cool (WM exclusive Classics BB and G1 25th Prime still had 'em). But a little Reprolabels action with their rubsigns works for me, too. I just got an order in for Unicron rubsigns myself for my Nemesis Prime custom drones.
id like to see them back they were awesome but ive always wondered why my Classics Mirage doesnt have one
Certain figures I think could benefit from rubsigns, ones like Lockdown who has no real allegiance or Shockwave who hides his.
If they bring them back it would be nice if they could make them a bit bigger. They just seem sort of small with all the surface area available on some figures.
If they could some how work a painted on symbol and a rub symbol on the same figure that would be awesome sauce.
Don't like them on Classics, took them off my Bumblebee and Cliffjumper:
I loved them. I put them on all my classics customs, too.
WTF are rubsigns?
You know better than that - Staff Sorry- NB
I'd rather Hasbro not be burdened with placing any more labels than necessary on their products. It seems that a substantial portion of my Classics 1.0 have their rub signs in severely askew positions and do not look right at all.
rubsigns are the black squares on TFs that when you warm them they show said bots allegiance......know what ill let Wiki explain it to ya Rubsign - Transformers Wiki
I have mixed feelings on them, but they would need to be applied on better ways if they ever come back
I didn't mind their use in Classics, but I didn't care for them replacing normal faction symbols instead of supplementing them.
Way to be a dick. He was just asking. I think the rubsigns were cool on the classics, made them look more G1.
I liked rubsigns on G1, made them feel classic.
I don't like them ont he new Classics/Universe, nor would I like to see them. I took them off my Classics 1.0 figs.
Sorry. Weird how the quote is edited but not my pits,
Didn't like them as a kid back in the day (OK maybe the first one I saw), don't like them now either.
I also never apply faction stickers, if you're a TF hiding your identity why would you have a big sign indicating your real nature? Anyone else remember in the comics when the Autobots use blanking plates for this very reason?
I'm all for them BUT only if they're added in the way Beast Wars 'Energon chips' were added on: in hidden places. Having them exposed is... unsightly. Unless they can figure out a way to make them less obvious.
oo i see now!
yea i didnt like those
