    Hmm well.. when I cant make a decision I flip a coin.
    It does look pretty nice when he's clean though.

    Tough one.

    I think I am crazy enough that I would cut out the individual stickers and attach them with some putty so as to not waste the stickers or bugger up Overlord.

    I know, it sounds stupid. But sometimes I can't help myself.

    He does look great as is though.

    Sure he looks nice clean. But he also looks awesome with stickers applied.

    You could always take them off.

    ^ This is also true. Sure it would probably destroy the stickers doing so, but if you weren't going to use them anyway then it's not a big deal. Unless you were planning on selling the sticker set if you decided not to apply them at all.

    Apply them. I too had an unapplied Overlord which looked fantastic. But now he looks 1.3 times more fantastic after I've applied them!

    Oh man, that is a good question...I say go ahead and apply them since you went through the trouble to obtain them. Since they are repro's, you could always take them off later if you decide.

    BUT, if you have sticker OCD like myself, then be prepared to spend hours with tweezers, sweating while meticulously applying them neatly, just knowing that it only takes one miscalculation in hand coordination, to ruin a long session of sticker perfection.

    I am normal!

    You could meet the decision in the middle, and only apply the stickers you feel necessary, if any. I find when I see some figures that have used every single sticker made for the figure, it just looks like too much. At least on most classics figures.

    i see this point of view all the time. no offense but do you have large fingers? cos all my stickers since childhood till now have been excellently applied, child hands to adult. no need for tweezers, just a steady hand. Just wonder why so many people seem to have an issue with applying labels. never been an issue for me. In fact i've always enjoyed it.

    Back on topic, apply them, in all honesty if you don't like them take them off. the costto experiment with this is minimal really, and IMO G1 figures look great with their labels applied.

    The thread is kinda pointless now that he went ahead and did it. I still would like to comment on these posts though. I agree entirely. A good example of stickers I don't apply would be Hot Rod's thigh stickers, and Cyclonus' shoulder stickers. They just look better with only SOME of the stickers.

    I ALWAYS go the middle route, especially with old expensive Japanese stuff.

    I apply anything that is part of the animation model, i.e. if they look naked without it, and leave the rest off.
