    Agreed. At this point I'm not bothering with any more Hasbro Voyagers or leaders, and will hold out for the hopefully-sticker-free Takara versions. Which sucks, and means I can only afford to buy half as many TFs, but here we are.

    Look at it as a way to keep the collection count manageable. I've largely skipped most of the Titans Returns Leaders and Voyagers so I had no clue the stickers were this bad. The wing stickers are the worst, as they're peeling a bit already due to them being cut a bit oversized.

    'm liking the figures, but since I have the originals of both I haven't bothered to transform Octone of Blitzwing. I do prefer to also keep Octones shoulder "pylons" down to look more g1'ish.

    Oo, I like how he looks with the shoulder towers folded back! Do they get in the way of the arm articulation?

    If you keep them in their alt mode configuration, yes. If you rotate them 90° before folding them back, they clear the sides of the body.

    I really like this guy, he is a very nice update to Octane. I also keep the shoulders folded down in bot mode, looks more like the animation model. I just wont transform him because those stickers worry me.

    I think I would like Octone to be repainted into Generation 2 Ultra Magnus based on the eHobby exclusive (below) instead of being a straight repaint from Optimus Prime as he usually is. He would have Optimus Prime's head in white though, or a remold based on his traditional armored head. Octane doesn't really have any options to be repainted into other characters so I would like Optimus Prime and Ultra Magnus to look different from each other.

    I see alot of boardmembers in here complaining about the use of stickers on the Titans Return Voyager and Leader Class figures.

    I was a kid in the 1980's when most Transformers used stickers. Because of that, I LOVE the stickers on the Titans Return figures. So much nostalgia is brought back to me when I look at these updates w/the stickers.

    As for the peeling, it's an easy fix. Reprolabels sells a glue for peeling stickers and/or you can trim them yourself.

    Anybody figure out what's causing the cab to split apart? I know it must be some kind of clearance issue with the collapsed wings, but I can't identify exactly which area to trim/adjust to help the problem. I have found that if I close the lower section of the cab, I can get it to stay together, but the top section (window area) will not stay together at all.

    it's not because they used stickers, it's because they are INCREDIBLY CRAPPY stickers ~ i mean, you shouldn't have to buy glue repair from Reprolabels because your $25-45 figure's decorations are falling off straight out of the package.

    Just picked up Octane and Blitzwing yesterday, and out of the 2, Octane is my favorite. :)  This is my first time handling the mold, and it does not disappoint. Octane's head sculpt is spot on, his weapons are great, and the alt. modes are fantastic. Out of all the TR voyagers, Octane is my favorite and the best one out of them all. :thumb

    I rate him a 10 out of 10. :thumb  If I get the chance to, I plan to pick up an extra Octane just because he's such an awesome figure. :)

    it's really remarkable how much better his plane mode looks then Optimus' ~ the combo of the new wings that hide the truck cab better and the unified color scheme just make worlds of difference.

    Thunderclash would also work well with Octone, but with Optimus's wings. Octone's chest is a dead ringer, just slap his chest symbol on there, give him a new head and poof.

    Can anyone tell me if Octane's wings can fold down flat against his back in anyway? I'm thinking of grabbing this guy when I can, but that wingspan could prove problematic when it comes to displaying him with the limited space I have available

    Thanks in advance!

    Yep, the wings are on a few hinges, so they're capable of folding onto his back. :thumb
