    I don’t generally bother with faction symbols even on my MP’s - I will one day, just need to sit down with a stack of waterslide decals but can’t be bothered for now - but are people putting faction symbols on their NewAge figures?
    Just curious how it looks at such a small size.

    interested to know as well. I build 1/44 scale HG model kits and even with the aid of decal tweezers, I still manage to fubar the application of stickers. wet application of stickers perhaps? wet the surface with soapy water, apply sticker. shimmy it into place, then let it dry. I wonder if that will work.

    I just get dry rubs. They look more like tampos instead of decals, and you can move them all around without them sticking until your ready and positioned to rub them in.

    Applying faction symbols is the finishing touch that all 3p figs need!

    That’s essentially the process for waterslide decals. If you go to that much effort to a[ply, decals are 1000 x thinner anc cleaner than stickers. Dry rubs even better still.

    There also dry decals self-adhesive, like a vynil but more thin. I use them in all my figures.

    The ultimate functional part of every 'eye' that detects photons of any frequency must be opaque to the frequency range desired to detect. Most eyes we're generally familiar with as humans have transparent parts adjacent to the 'ultimate detector' that help in the focusing of detail. The flat panel eyes we see of G1 TFs are probably built like insect eyes with a crapton of functional units working in conjunction to build up a view of reality; arrayed flat on a panel with vision data leading off wires soldered to the instead of spherically towards a central point. TF eyes are basically tablets that take in light instead of emit it (although they may be detecting on different frequencies than humans, while actually emitting light in human-sight frequencies that wouldn't interfere with their own vision).

    I got them on eBay, but I’ve been having a hard time finding another sheet like I had before. :(

    Oh that stinks! :( 

    Let me know if you find another good source. I'll do the same if I come across one. :thumb

    I haven't purchased from this particular seller (the one I use is out of his stock), but this is the exact same sheet I got a few times. They are half clear outline and half white outline.

    Beautiful!

    I hope they continue to keep that sheet in stock, it’s so great for Legends scale with all the tiny decals.

    I haven’t used agabyss, but they’re part of the RoC community and highly regarded, no hesitations there.
