    I'm wanting to customize a Generations leader Jetfire into a GI Joe Skystriker. The problem is all the stickers. Could I use Skystriker lables on him? I know he's smaller, but how much so? Could I make them work with some trimming? Or is the size difference too great? I don't own a Skystriker, so I have no idea how big it is by comparison to Jetfire. If someone could take a pic of them together from the top with no backpack on Jetfire ( and him in jet mode ), I'd really appreciate it. That is if anyone in here has Jetfire and a Skystriker.

    I had the Skystriker not too long ago, and it was freakin' huge. I'm thinking around the 24" range.
    You may be better off just painting the striping on Jetfire.

    @Snake_eyes1975 - You would be better able to assist.

    hes right...skystriker is huge. mabye 24-26" long.

    best bet for labels if you ask me...scan what you have and shrink it down, print on paper until you get the right scale you want, then get some decal waterslide paper...make em yourself. If you have a good inkjet printer your gold. if not just take your file to kinkos or fedex shop and have em print them for you.

    I don't have any to scan and shrink. So you think I should buy them from Toyhax and scan them? Seems like a waste to buy stickers I'm not going to use. Unless someone knows where I can get scans of a Skystriker sticker sheet online...

    You could always get some vinyl pinstriping tape. They make it in all different widths and colors.

    I would still need the various military and logo decals.
