Just got an email for July's update-
YES! New movie stickers! I'll be ordering all these AoE sets!
Those Evasion Prime and Goldbug/Bumblebee sets are really nice looking.
And that emblem set is really cool, but the continuous lack of Star Seeker emblems is driving me mad.
I was planning on repainting my evasion Optimus as a summer project, but this is giving me a really easy out... lol
Those Evasion Prime stickers look great. Can't wait for the eventual modification to 'em for Scrapyard Prime from the Breakout set, should solve most of that toy's deco problems.
Crosshairs's set vastly improves that toy to the point I almost actually want him. Almost. I know the hood kibble is supposed to be like his trenchcoat but...come on, it's kind of cheating when the majority of his alt. mode just sits on his back. I'm also surprised they didn't do anything in terms of stickers for the goggles to highlight those details.
The HO BB set also makes me do a near 180 of opinion. I'd totally get him since he looks great with those stickers...except I still can not get over how the foward mid-section of the car just sits on his back. Like, doesn't even fold down. It's actually kind of insulting given that they actually corrected this problem on the Armada Starscream deluxe specifically because the original had the back if his alt. mode stick out far enough to be a perpetual clotheline gag in waiting.
Slug and Scorn look really, really good with those stickers. Kinda wish Reprolabels had done something about those rictus grins on the alt. modes, though, since they are somewhat creepy looking.
Voyager Grimlock's set is a bona fide improvement. As I was going to try and get that 2-pack with Energon Grimlock just for S&G to personally see how bad that toy is, the included Voyager Grimlock might as well be upgraded to be the best as possible.
GoldFireBug looks absolutely G2 with that set and I want it. Unfortunately, my prospects of picking one up are dim since that was, IIRC, the Skids wave retailers didn't order at all.
And I can see those new "obscure" white outline symbols getting lots of love. Though I can't tell what that one emblem is in the lower left square. All I can make out is that it sorta looks like the Pokemon "Haunter"
That Crosshairs set oozes win. I should pick up a High Octane BB set just for the heck of it. The rest of the stickers enhance the look but I never really liked those figures to begin with anyways.
We tried to do goggles for crosshairs, but there just wasnt enough smooth surface area for them to adhere well.
Still waiting on God Bomber stickers to come available.
Cool, ordered the evasion Prime and high octane Bumblebee sets. It really bothered me that the yellow stripe doesn't go all around the front of the car.
Hope I actually get my order this time.
I'm thinking of leaving off the bullet holes and rusty bumper stickers to go with a clean Prime look...
Wait... aren't we getting a new Crosshairs that's painted movie accurate, along with a junk Optimus?
Warden set for me. Like Sixguns set
does crosshairs have the stripes on both sides now?
Yes and yes.
I was really hoping for an AOE Leader Optimus set. I guess I'll have to wait until AFTER TFCON....
These look pretty nice, and the work is appreciated as always, and once I get Quantron somehow paid for I will be buying more, but..
I just can't help but be continually nagged in the back of my mind by the fact that if Hasbro would stop half-assing decos we wouldn't need sets to make the toys even begin to look presentable and or source accurate.
Oh wow, these turn a lot of AoE figures from 'meh' to 'amazing'!
Meh, I just want those Cybertron Glow stickers. Anyone want to sell me their free sticker sheet for $7 (the price of the regular symbol sheets)?
Yuk. Stickers are sooo tacky and cheapens the look. Why don't people realise this?
Ah, ok, fair enough. Thanks for trying all the same!
Maybe put them on somebody else? Deco permitting, of course, but some bullet holes wouldn't look bad on DOTM Megatron's alt. mode.
Given the first Evasion Optimus is fairly G1 and not movie-colored, this sticker set does a lot to make the colors work together much nicer than before.
Don't know about Crosshairs, so can't say anything about that.
Well...they're toys, only die-hard toy collectors like us really care for that kind of thing, y'know?
Well, it's not like Hasbro doesn't do it themselves, since Whirl and presumably Roadbuster have stickers of their own.
Are you guys planning to do an upgrade set for Gen. Windblade when she's released? If her production fig stays true to the fig we saw at Toy Fair and Botcon, then her wings will be solid black and devoid of the red decos her comic counterpart has. She just looks really unfinished without those.
