    Clear backing? You could use Tester's translucent decal paper and print various sizes of autobot/deception symbols. That's what I do. It's a bit time consuming, but doing this type of stuff yourself has its rewards.

    1. buy transucent decal paper
    2. buy decal protectant spray
    3. find logos you want to use online (google for "transformers / deception / autobot symbols" )
    4. open your printing app of choice (adobe photoshop or illustrator)
    5. import your logos and resize as needed (i usually print 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, 1inch symbol sizes.. and as many as i can fit on one sheet of decal paper)
    6. print
    7. coat the print out with the decal protectant (this is NOT optional, the ink will run right off the printed decal if you do not spay)
    8. cut out decals
    9. enjoy the process of decal application hell (jk, decals are easy to apply but can be annoying for first time users)

    Good luck!

    If it makes you feel any better, I've yet to decorate my iGear Coneheads as well.

    The set that has the large Decepticon symbols along with the next size down are perfect for the MP seekers. I have submitted a set that has the name/function and con symbols for the stands too *spoiler* =)
