    The best way I can explain it is that Waterslides/Wet Labels just look cleaner and looks as if they came off the factory line with them on. My main thing I've always hated about Stickers are that most of the time they don't cut the Decepticon "Crown" to shape on the medium to smaller size. Even Reprolabels/ToyHax are guilty of that. Also I hate to be "That Guy" but IMHO Stickers cheapen the overall look of your figure. When I started collecting everything was pretty much Stickered up but overtime I took them all off and wet with Waterslides and never looked back;)  C'mon folks,you spent X-AMOUNT on the figure,the least you can do is show it some love with Waterslides/labels.

    Examples of the Decepticon Crown stickers.

    It’s always clean with no contaminates. The coating is always uniform edge to edge. The prep work of the surface prior to the painting is impeccable also. You see on the TT figures in close up pictures all these potholes in the surface they paint over. You never see they with fanstoys.

    if I had a New Years wish it’s a how it’s made video of the fanstoys production process @dalinajj

    is any outlet still offering pre-orders for Iceman? I just realized I hadn't had one pinned down yet and either the listings don't exist or are already sold out...

    I haven’t seen it up for pre-order at any of the major retailers. Show Z had it but without a price which means it hasn’t been solicited to retailers yet.

    Removed the red with white outline in lieu of this one here. Looks better as the red isn’t too bright. 7E948DAE-0BE1-4BE8-9CA7-5EC96700CA51.jpeg

    I have two questions. 1) How durable are waterslide decals? On models they're not usually meant for handling and I like to transform all of my bots from time to time. 2) Where do you get em? I'm tired of buying ToyHax labels and only ever using up the huge logos first, which is the least amount of decals on the sheets. Gah.

    I went with Silver border, and not chrome type of silver. Good Lord, I am loving these FT combiner figures. They're killing it.

    the ocean decal waterslides are tough as fuck once dry !!!

    anyone on the fence with waterslides honestly jump off it you will never look back!!!

    if like me and you don't have a steady hand stickers and dry rubs can be a nightmare

    i used to only use stickers but they are a a pain to get in the right spot and it can ruin them and crease them trying to get them straight !!as already pointed out they are not always cut out right so can look shit

    dry rubs are nice if you get them in the right spot but they have the tendency to stick too soon sometimes tearing them i found them quite frustrating sometimes

    waterslides as long as you keep them wet you can keep playing with until you get it in the right spot no wasted ones trying to get it right and once dry they are as sturdy as dry rubs ! honestly the best thing since sliced bread :D

    So are there any outline versions availabe for waterslides. I find that I am indeed wasting stickers by positioning them wrongly, and destroying them when I move or remove them.

    I'm unable to find white outline non-toon style autobot waterslides anywhere. I messaged several reputable eBay sellers who sell decals to see if they have any.

    If anyone prints them and willing to sell me a sheet let me know. I can't do it myself, only have access to shitty xerox printers at work.

    Look at the head sculpt on the original toy, then look at the stupid cartoon face on the new one. This is why I'm not buying these. And I hope that's why they are not selling out, because the small group once again got their way.
