Did you drop by BotCon 2016, pick up a Predacus set, and really want your Magnaboss counterpart for the DeceptiPredacon combiner? As we showed at the weekend, the Club did offer a sticker sheet which enables the closest thing to it, by decoing Unit-3 and Tigatron (from the show), and CW Ironhide, Prowl and Silverbolt - just follow the instructions below, courtesy of TF_JW!

Hey @seibertroncom and @BotCon fans everywhere, are you ready for some Magnaboss decal instructions?

Let's start With Megatron. While not part of Magnaboss, he has decals on Ironhide's sheet. Pred symbol & dragon eyes. There are 8 Megatron eyes on the sheet. The extras are there because of how tiny they are - you will have spares if you tear or loose one.

And now the actual stickers for Ironhide. He uses all the rest in the gray as well as one of the Maximal symbols. 2 things about Ironhide: Apply the chest decals from bottom to top. Watch for wrinkles. And apply the bottom waist decals before the belt. Applying the 2 bottom waist stickers 1st (start at the outside) will let you cover anything extra under the "buckle".

Silverbolt gets some brown added to robot and jet mode. Maximal symbol locations are suggestions, not guidelines. A lot of the sculpted detail lines up under the lines on the decals. The stickers have enough give to push down into the details if gentle.

Magnaboss has an option for fans: Mouth or no mouth. In case anyone is off-put by the grin. Again, the Maximal symbol position is optional as well. Sticker order for Magnaboss, it is best to apply the "nose" area decal 1st. And apply the sides of the "bird" head 1st before the top.

Prowl probably has the most decals. Lots of stripes, lights, and emblems. I think the Prowl in the case at the convention was missing the yellow horn decals. Please note that the white decal that goes over the black nylon "elbow" piece must be applied before the stripes. Speaking of those UK police stripes, there is another option for Prowl that I don't have photos for. But you can leave the UK stripes off, leave the BW robot mode decals off, and add the Autobot symbol for a more-accurate G1 look. Also on Prowl's sheet are those little circle Decepticon logos? Where do those go?

They go on TCC Ramjet and Skywarp's forearms. The white ones work on Takara Starscream too.

Lastly, those red Decepticon symbols on Ironhide's sheet. SG? Sure. Or use one on Ravage for show accuracy. More about the @BotCon decals. The spare faction stickers include Wreckers which can be used on Tigatron or TFSS 5.0.

Another thing missing from the Magnaboss in the case (I forgot to convert the weapons this way), his sword! It's a little undersized, but Magnaboss needs a sword!!

I like how this came out just in time for the Prowl/Ironhide/etc deluxe wave to not be on store shelves after sitting around for half a year :lol: Ah well, there's always Amazon and such.

Magnaboss looks amazing. too bad he wasn't a Con exclusive as i like the colours on Silverbolt, Prowl and Ironhide. and plus, the CW Menasor i have is needing someone to fight.

Okay, with all the stickers properly in place, Magnaboss looks pretty good.

...Except for that goofy 1980s/90s Ninja Turtle Toy-esque mouth. Seriously what expression is that supposed to be? Is it a grin? A scowl?

Maybe it's just that he needed a nose in the sticker. Magnaboss had a pretty distinct shnoz.

Everything else looks great though. It's exactly what I was hopping would be done to balance out Predacus. Even that sword is a nice touch.

It was 400 sticker sets, not 40. A typo dropped the second zero from the sales sheet.

It's a shame though, that instead of looking like that, the mouth looks like it's from this:

That's actually kind of a good thing since those kinds of faces became a sort of staple with nearly every Transmetal toy from 1998-2000 having those kinds of facial expressions.

To any Funpub employee who reads this:
Please make a second run of this Year's Megatron, and sell them to more than one person this time. This is a figure the fandom has been waiting 11 years for, and you did you customers a MASSIVE disservice by selling out your stock to the first person in line on saturday morning.
People spend upwards of 2 or 3 THOUSAND DOLLARS to get to your events and buy your products.
The least you could have done is wait until the afternoon to lift your one per customer limit and at least give people a chance.

Psst. I still have them at retail if you'd like me to nab them.

I grabbed a set of Silverbolt, Ironhide and BBTS last night for $60 shipped, which is pretty good since they had Silverbolt below his MSRP ($19.99 versus $26.99). Heckuva lot cheaper than BotCon exclusives! :D

The people that paid "2 or 3 THOUSAND DOLLARS" probably didn't wait until Saturday to get one.

While I think it would have been a nice gesture to keep the limit of only 1 per person for that particular item at least through Saturday afternoon, I'm assuming based on the previous 11 BotCons that Fun Pub has a pretty good idea of what happens with whether or not the walk-ins will purchase any of those exclusives.

Also, it seems that there was some misunderstanding about Megatron. Apparently he did sell out, but not in the way that people are talking about with a dealer buying out the rest of the inventory.

Fun Pub has had to deal with excess inventory of BotCon and Club exclusives many times over the past 12 BotCons so I can't say I blame them for wanting to liquidate inventory as fast as possible.

Nope, I'm looking at my Ironhide now. The Combiner port is black, not red, and the crotch piece is red, among other changes.
