    So what's funny here is I don't know where any of the ones you didn't circle go either. Except for the tape spools - those are obvious. The video didn't cover anything except Soundwave and Laserbeak. In fact it skipped a few on Soundwave and then he just kind of pointed to them on the finished figure (the hole covers at the wrists and the USB port looking stickers at the top of his elbow guards. I didn't see where any of the white double arrows went either (the ones that look like ffw/rw symbols).

    Got Soundwave stickered up. I actually have extra magnets - they're some kind of jewelry making magnets sold by bead sellers that I bought for customizing TFs a while back - so I was able to put two into each foot for a stronger hold. That allowed me to do this pose.

    The white trapezoid with the double black arrows seems to fit in the front of the autoscout. I believe all the non-spool circles are the ones in the video used to cover up all the pinholes. I didn't bother with those though, because I didn't see the point. Its funny, because I can see some people wanting to cover up screw holes, but they're so small on this figure anyways that the stickers are way more obvious.

    Same with the black topped trapezoids with the red arrows next to those circles- I think they go on the back of forearms from some of the pics I've seen. But those seem more stickers for stickers sake.

    Yeah, they come with the tape back. I did install them in Soundwave and one of my Soundblasters, but not sure what they exactly do. Also not sure how I could ever remove them if I wanted to.

    ^That's a cool shot.

    Side note:
    Soundwave, Sondblaster, and the Coneheads all arrived in the good 'ole USofA for me today anyway. I can't wait to get my grubby little paws on these guys.

    I got my Soundblaster from TCP a couple weeks ago, and it also had no decals.

    Kind of a bummer, but I also have no experience with dry rub decals, so maybe it’s better that they go to a home with a more experienced applicant. :rolleyes: 


    I <3 this! :p 

    With another, stronger magnet! :D 


    Well, then, I suppose some intrepid modeler will just have to answer that call... ;)

    MS soundwave is definitely legend+ in my books… this is with JB OS megatron (NA KO) and MFT OS shockwave (IF KO). i need NA to release a smaller soundwave that's shorter than MS prime. :p

    lol...you and your need for him to be legends+

    you can say it over and over but that wont change the fact that he is just a run of the mill legends bot.

    if he were + he would be the size of MFT blaster and the rest.

    nice picture by the way

    Barely did anything with it. Pick it up and this happens. Never even transformed... I feel like Magic Square quality is declining...

    You try hefting around giant, metal nipples all day. I bet your leg would give out too.

    well that is a pretty fucked up way to start out. but even though it is a hassle and not what you planned for. hopefully your seller will shoot you a new replacement bot.

    but worst case i can help you fix it.

    Weird, considering their vaunted nylon plastic invincibility. My guess is the factory worker putting it together was overly rough and rather than ruin their waste numbers shoved it in the box anyway.
