    But are these stickers or dry transfer logos? They look like the same sheet Rub posted. Then the question is if there are white and clear back. Need both of those. Also, those white outline ones would finally make my FT perceptor accurate.

    I may pick up these Aliexpress.com : Buy ENESS Detail sticker for Igear pp03PP03A/J/E mp Thrust /Dirge /amjet from Reliable sticker permanent suppliers on Uncle Billy. or these Aliexpress.com : Buy Ocean Detail Decals for MP11/MP07 Thundercracker from Reliable decal printing suppliers on Uncle Billy just for the large Decepticon transfers. I'll let you guys know if they match the ones that come with YM Skywarp.

    Many China based retailers will refer to dry transfers as simply "stickers". I think that's where some of the confusion comes from.

    All of the so called stickers I've bought from Uncle Billy have actually been dry rubs.

    It's amazing how hard it is to get a hold of the right thing. I'd want the dry transfer, clear and white. Not the Silver at any given point as I'm all in for toon look.

    I've applied the dry rub logos on my BB7/YM Thundercracker and Skywarp. The figures look even better now that they have logos on them but I don't see what the big rave about dry rubs is all about. They look no different than applied Reprolabel logo stickers. I've always been hearing about dry rub logos are supposed to have the same look as painted/tampo'd logos on the official. I don't see it like that unless I'm missing something.

    Anyways bring on YM Starscream. :)

    I'm really surprised by that. I recently got the eness set for Exhaust and was completely blown away by how much better than reprolabels they were. I'm not comparing designs, just the difference between sticker vs dry rub. If I could have things my way, I'd want reprolabels to switch to dry rubs and then redo all the old sets as well even though they are a pain in the ass to apply.

    Maybe it's just the YM dry rubs. However, amazingly they were pretty easy to apply. Dry-rub tutorials on youtube make it overly-complicated. But I think in general dry-rubs can a royal pain to apply. That's why I'll never give up on Reprolabel stickers and logos.

    General dry rub should have all trimmed to the graphics with no excess, they are impossible to remove once applied, but most of the dry rub used on TF are pretty much like sticker, if you are careful enough, you can peal them off completely and relocate with damaging it, but the trade off is that they are thick compared to general one and have visible backing.

    i prefer dry rub to stickers now and after a few failed one's i have pretty much mastered it , make sure the transfer is cold as it's not tacky , bit of tape either side to keep it in place... then warm slightly with a hair dryer or over a heater and it should be easy to rub onto the figure , the good thing about the tape you can lift it to see if its all rubbed off and if not just stick it back down and rub the rest off...........with sticker's i have messed soooo many up especially with reprolabels

    While I have TakTom versions of all the main seekers, I love that BB7, et al. are willing to tackle some of the D-Listers like Nacelle, Bitstream, and Nova Storm. I will definitely be picking them all up when they finally come around. And because everything is better with pics:

    One more TakTom to go (They would leave my favorite for last, ugh).

    Well damn, that makes the original look like a cheap toy. I'll have to pass though cause if they make one, they'll be making the others and I'd have to get those too and I just don't have the space. I'll certainly enjoy admiring pics from those that do get it though.

    I definitely wouldn't replace with OS, but shrink the MP or OS the classic Seekers and I still wouldn't replace mine, but they all would have little brothers.

    Nobody knows at the moment. The webpage in the images is a dead link for me.

    This!

    You would think right? I totally want different scowls, even if it's just slight...

    On the sticker front I'm going to get some of the bb7 dry rub decal sets in. They are coming directly from bb7 so are exactly the same as those packaged with the KO seekers.

    Once they arrive, I'll have them in hand and can make them available direct if anyone is interested (will ship from Canada). Cost will probably be around $10 for 3 sheets? Or $4 for one? Is that fair? I dunno...lol

    Pm me if you're interested. Thanks!
