While working on the galleries for Generations Metroplex and Scamper, I discovered that two of the stickers are misnumbered on the sticker sheet (or the instructions, depending on how you want to look at it). Sticker #31 goes on placement #77 in the instructions, and sticker #77 goes on placement #31 in the instructions. Please refer to the pictures below to help you figure out which stickers go in the correct spots. Hopefully this will help all of you avoid a little frustration while applying the approximately 100 stickers on your Metroplex.

Check back in the next day or two to check out Seibertron.com's massive gallery of Generations Metroplex.

Labeling is half the fun :D
The more stickers, the better.

On a different sticker related topic I know the stickers of the bridge have a dominant red tint to them, but does it look like Arcee is her pink version? I thought Hasbro said Arcee was now to be blue until eternity.

G1 Arcee should remain pink, while every other new Arcee will be blue.

Slightly off topic here but in the instructions it shows assembly instructions and you are required to attach the right arm. I don't have Metroplex yet but for those that do, does Metroplex come with one arm unattached?

Yes. One detached.

That is correct. The arm simply snaps in. The SDCC version appears to come fully assembled.

She does appear to be the pink version. These images looked rehashed from somewhere. Is this artwork from the old Dreamwave guidebook?

Kinda, Optimus has the exact same pose as he does on the advertisement for Ongoing #01, but seem to be redrawn, as it's missing all the shadows.

100 stickers??!! Good lord that's a lot. I suppose it was the only way though. Doing all of those as tampographs would've jacked the price up another $50 at least.

Its about 150 since there is a lot that share a number, like the arrow stickers.

took me 4 hours to sticker my SDCC Metroplex. I think a lot of them needs to be cut. they don't even fit in where they should perfectly. maybe its just me.. I love the foil stickers the SDCC comes with but looks like you can see a lot of the art in City mode better with the retail version.

Speaking of stickers not fitting well. 95/95 seem to be not even close to the shape that fits in the spot. What did you guys do?

It's the proper shape, just not the proper size if you don't want to bend the sticker.

You line it properly(have the orange part centered), then press it into the space(the black parts end up on the walls). At least that's how I did mine.

I ended up just trimming up the sides a little.

Thanks for the heads up, Seiber... :APPLAUSE:

And aside from 94/95 being a mess, #39 is laughably catastrophic! :BANG_HEAD: It's clearly too large, and rather than point that out, the instructions sheet tells you to just sort of DRAPE it over the head/shoulder area. #-o

Look, I'll cut Hasbro some slack and say they don't typically have sticker applications... but, wait... they sell other toys with stickers (i.e. some stickers on SW vehicles). So... ????

For $130 retail, I expect a certain level of quality control, and 4-5 mistakes on a sheet of 150+ stickers is only okay for a start-up, not a multi-billion corporation like Hasbro. Seriously. Get this sh*t together, bro. #-o

EDIT: Nevermind... #39 wraps around the helipad in a weird way that requires you to open up the helipad chest. :BANG_HEAD:

Dear Hasbro: this is exactly how NOT to do a sticker instruction sheet. Holy god were the base mode sticker applications confusing... :BOOM:
