    While I can understand why some dislike stickers, for me having a label sheet is always fun. I'm always reminded of the fun I had as a kud with G1 figures snd applying labels sheets. It's something that's indicative of G1 Transformers that I've always liked.

    I certainly don't intend to disparage anyone for enjoying stickers. This is almost at the level of running-joke with me (even if I'm the only person who laughs at it). Stickers, to me, mean something I feel obligated to apply, lest the figure be incomplete, but the fact is, I'm not very good at applying them (especially as my near-vision eyesight gets worse as I enter my late-40s).

    And I wasn't especially good at applying them as a kid, either, so the nostalgia goggles don't really work for me, either.

    Yeah I love it as well. It’s another one of those things I didn’t get into but now have a chance to get a recreation of it. I did it with my Ratchet, G2 Sideswipe, and probably will with this guy.

    As a mid 40s guy with nearsightedness as well, I find it so much easier to put stickers on if I remove my glasses. But yeah, I so understand your issue with them. To be honest, I have yet to put the G1 Reissue Soundwave stickers on mine since I am still debating on putting them as indicated or as they should have been. So I'm right there with you on the not enjoying the stickers.

    Did I see on the front page that Spinout comes with Red stickers?

    Same. Stickers are a no go for me. I’ve tried to put them on ratchet so many times but I just can’t. Maybe if I had An extra Sticker sheet. Who knows.
    Yep! :D  Your eyes are working with your brain correctly!

    And, I, the same to you as well. I totally understand why many don't like stickers, mainly for the reasons you describe here. I don't want to discourage others in our hobby in any way, really. Admirably, you posted your preferences in a very respectful way, and I'm glad the feeling was mutual (as was my intent); I think a great many fans could learn from this recent discourse :) 

    Back to labels, I'm not disappointed when figures don't have a label sheet (and Toyhax is good about filling that void), but when they do come with labels, I get even more giddy for s figure I'm already really looking forward to.

    Exactly the opposite of my problem. These days, I need reading glasses to handle things that are too close to my eyes.

    I actually AM near-sighted, and have needed glasses for distance vision for years, but nowadays what I really need are bifocals.

    Love the fact he comes with stickers. Now just release a yellow version and we're all good Takara!

    So do the Sunstreaker and Sideswipe moulds share the same lambo shapes or are there subtle differences?

    Not a fan of that red neck plate. Hope it’s black on the final version, but I feel like it might not be.

    Well, a quick fix with black paint should do the trick...

    Hard to get a paint match, and impossible to paint the ball joint for the head as the paint will just wear off. Pretty sure that's why it isn't black, because it's unpainted and it's on a sprue that requires red plastic. Ah well.

    Maybe it's just the lower quality of the photos, but the insignia really don't look like stickers at all. Great application.
