    So what do you guys do? Do you like to sticker your figures or not.

    For me personally, certain G1 figures need stickers. It sets them off and makes them great. I was really trying to hold back on the stickers, but now I realize they need them.

    Alternators really do get a great benifit from stickers. You can really make them look G1 with a couple of stickers.

    Classics.... Hell no. No stickers on those guys.

    I always buy Reprolabels so I have a spare set. G1 needs stickers but, my OCD makes me need spares.

    Stickers are a must on G1s. Without them is like having a PB&J without the J...

    I really only like Stickers on G1 figures. Anything else... we've made enough advancements in manufacturing since G1, they should be able to cover it with paint apps.

    Did I mention stickers?

    One day I will get everything opened, displayed and fully stickered.

    One's that need redeco will also be redone as well.

    Stickers for G1, the full set.
    Although Metroplex and Trypricon, I gave them the Reprolabels V.I.P. treatment with their respective sticker upgrade sets.

    For the rest, I rely on the factory paint apps, unless they are REALLY lacking.

    No stickers here. Call me crazy, but I love having a minty figure with a separate unapplied label sheet, vintage of course. But this method of collecting can get super expensive. Not for everyone.

    G1 and kreos, that's it for me. Kreo stickers suck so those need a little extra dab of super glue when applying or they'll come off in a day.

    Some alts look cool with the reprolabels sets, but I kinda think it distracts from the sleekness of the vehicle mode a bit more then it adds to it.

    As others have mentioned, if stickers make the figure pop, I'll apply them. Otherwise, I'd prefer factory applied stickers only.

    I'm still iffy about the seekers... to sticker or not. I'm going with no right now, what they really need are painted faces:2c:
