    If you have partial,none or full stickers stories. please share them in this thread.

    Way back in the 1980's. The only TF Toy I thought desperately needed all of it's stickers was 1985 Jetfire. the toy without the stickers applied looked bare,naked & void of persona character detail.

    I haven't applied stickers to a Transformers toy in a long time. When I say a long time I'm not referring to a few years ago. I'm referring to decades ago.

    A few days ago I got the Chance to apply stickers to my Kreo bigger Starscream toy. I bough this toy last week. it's from last years Kreo release sets.

    This toy look really bare,naked & desperately needed some stickers. to add the much needed detail this toy was missing.

    At first,I applied all the stickers on the toy. but some didn't look right,So I removed them.

    The stickers I liked & I kept on the toy. was the Two chest in-take stickers. the jet wings stripes. the Two Decepticons insignia stickers.

    I removed the lower legs stickers,the waist plate sticker. removed the forearm sticker. the red lights data tech sticker on the forearms.

    I didn't bother to apply any of the stickers to Kreo bigger Vortex. Because I felt the toy didn't need the stickers. the mold wasn't as bare or naked looking like bigger Kreo Starscream was. All the different colored plastic & molded plastic details give this toy character detail.

    Generally, I don't apply stickers to my figures.

    I'm always worried that they'll just peel off, and I really don't trust myself to apply them straight.

    I never applied the stickers to most of my 1980's TF toys. I thought they looked better without stickers.

    I did make a few rare exceptions. 1985 Jetfire,1986 Rodimus Prime,Fortress Maximus.

    I never applied any of the stickers on my Generation 2 toys.

    I apply the majority of them but if they're in some dumb place that's gonna get ruined during transformation like near a door hinge I don't bother.

    For G1 figures, I place them where the instructions indicate.

    Yeah, this is my answer, too.

    On a couple occasions, when I sensed trouble coming, I trimmed a few millimeters off a sticker with an exacto knife before applying, to keep the edge of the sticker away from a potential trouble spot.

    Depends on how the toy will look with the sitckers on.

    Take the current TakTom AM figures. Usually, I'll apply all the stickers. But for Darkness Megatron, I passed on sticking those pieces that have the squiggly lines on Megs. I just don't fancy those scribbles on Megatron.

    I usually just put on ones where it will be animation accurate, or where it will break up large areas of colour. I did that with my Braves and some of the later G1 reissues I picked up - I only really did ones that were needed to improve the overall look.

    I do the grand majority on Arms Microns / Kabaya toys because they need it, but sometimes I vary it up a bit for whatever I personally feel looks good. Arms Microns are a tricky one since I end up photographing them all for the site so I need to make them look "as they are meant to" :lol

    Depends. Haven't touched a G1 since my childhood, but I applied the wing stripes and various small details on MP Skywarp and Starscream [the green one].

    Haven't applied any stickers on my MP Rodimus, but that's mostly because they'll rub like crazy on transformation.

    AM figures have poor stickers, so either I paint it myself if it's a simple colour [red, black, etc] or leave some out.

    I do go crazy on my yamato valkyries, but still don't use all of it.

    All of them. If they provide it, I use it.

    Key stickers, or ones needed to break up blandness or cover joints. I rarely use the entire sheet.

    I use all of them. If I have some left over from one toy (extra faction symbols) I'll use them on other bots.
