ah, good thinking. I was also anticipating using a qtip for certain things.
How easy is it to apply partially, then pull off if need be for adjusting? I'm afraid that this is a one shot deal when applying.
Fairly easily, but make sure you don't let go or press down if you think you need to adjust it. I usually line up one edge first where I want it to go, and work from there, pressing down to remove air bubbles as I go. Also, be careful when pressing down the vinyl ones into panel lines and whatnot... the color can
be rubbed off, as I discovered with my G1 Jetfire set. Used a fingernail to try to get it down into the detail lines and ended up rubbing off some of the color.
Also, the end of an unfolded paperclip might be a good implement for assisting with placement, but a little more hazardous to both the figure and labels than a toothpick would be, so proceed with caution.
