    Good options for TE V3, but they are transparent, so they're not working on TE V2 because the shoulder depressed space for faction symbol (bad idea TE!).

    Agreed! That one grey piece is super annoying. Why didn't they simply cast it in white in the first place...?
    Now that the windows are fixed in version 3 that's my only remaining gripe with this figure.

    Those decals look great. I'm going to have to get some. Totally cartoon vibes.

    That's the one I used, clean cartoon outline. The one in my photo is the largest one. I've since moved to the second largest. The rivets in the shoulder are a little too constrictive for the large sticker to sit flat enough for my taste.

    Ideally, the grey part in the hip is white, the button on the gun is in the same color as the rest of the gun, the windows remain frosted and the crest on the head is all grey. That's all it needs. Maaaaybe chromed smokestacks and grille, but that's only for the sake of changing it up a little. One can dream.... ;)

    They like to hide those in there. Took me a minute to find them too.

    If you decide you won't use them, I never got decals in my V2 set and unfortunately the Toyhax labels are juuuuuuust slightly too big.

    Really? You switched to the 2nd largest? I was about to switch to the largest one based on your pictures because it looks so good. So do you recommend I stick with the second largest toy hacks logo?

    That's a tough call. To me, that one looked a tad bit big. This one looks a tad bit small. But I think I'll stick with this one just because it doesn't butt up against the rivets like the largest one did. But I think either one looks pretty damn good.

    One more question: do you have V2 or V3? Cause I have V2, and it has a big hole for a faction symbol, and cant use transparent logos :(

    We'll, I kind of mixed and matched between v2 and v3. The torso is v2, so I'd have more options on how I wanted the windows to look. The lower body and arms are v3. So in short, the shoulder is v3 without the indent. Before that, I did have the 2nd largest transparent logo in the v2 indent. It wasn't a perfect fit, but it was pretty close.
