    The best thing about this set? The stickers are pre-applied.

    This is fuckin bad-ass! Though I wonder why the pre-applied decals as opposed to leaving it up to the buyer to apply? If anyhting, wouldn't it cut the cost from the labor and into the collectors hands!?

    From this set of images, it does appear that Overbite has his own body color that's different from the rest of the Seacons... it's just not the original shade of dark purple. That's odd.

    First thought: Wow. That's a lot pinker than the original...
    Second thought: Dammit. It has stickers instead of painted apps...

    Stickers & G1 go together like chocolate & peanut butter. Two great tastes that taste great together.

    Ugh. I hated stickers on my G1 toys, and I hate them even more now because they're unnecessary with the way things can be tampographed on. Especially faction symbols.

    I noticed that too---earlier, I thought they'd simply cut down the total number of colors, and made Overbite's body match his accents. But no, these pics show they changed the Decepticon-purple parts to ALMOST match the other bits, creating an all-new magenta-ish color for 4 or 5 parts for no apparent reason...

    That is the final product and i have no problem with it as it prevents any one from trying to pass it off as a legit g1 set.

    Unless you're displaying them individually, the color of Snap Trap's head really isn't relevant.

    Regardless, this set just oozes quality. All six members, all individual weapons and stands, G1 art on individual character cards, shiny chrome sword and chest piece. So a few colors are off, if that's the only thing we can complain about then we have it pretty good.
