Even with that "visor hommage", I don't get what they are going for with that TR Arcee kit.

Well I guess that almost sort in a way if you squint looks like tarn if you cut of tarns shoulders and left him in a desert for a while and shaved down his face and took his guns and yeah it's a bit of a stretch.

Or paint the figure first.

This is the largest discussion I’ve seen on a product update news.

While I didn't see the value in the other Dinobot stickers, the Grimlock ones do look nice.

All the black stuff on Arcee is probably based on Hasbro's Thrilling 30 release and occasional IDW colors. They really went half way with this and should have included the black around the neck and hips.



Alt mode is slightly more convincing.

I like that the PotP Grimlock sheet includes labels with cartoon-style blue optics for both his heads and for Volcanicus'. I painted the optics blue on mine and my goodness but I think it looks better. Maybe it's a color balance thing.

I'm disappointed by the absence of two things. I really want to see improved/alternate versions of G1 Sunstreaker and Ultra Magnus' sheets. Sunstreaker's sheet is missing the Diaclone/pre-rub factory headlight stickers (extra egregious when you can see them on the Sunstreaker in the sticker map!), and both sheets have certain stickers that need color-correcting -especially Sunstreaker's blasted shoulder stickers. The clash isn't too bad on Ultra Magnus, but on Sunstreaker ye gods. Those stickers are supposed to blend the shoulders in with the rest of the carbody, so they need to be the same color. Leaving them red (which matched the Diaclone version) makes them do just the opposite so that the shoulders stick out worse than they would if you left them bare black!
Ideally an upgraded Sunstreaker sheet would also Transformerize certain decals (the "CR" ones on his doors and the one under his canopy that just has a blank silver rectangle, where the Diaclone one said "Car Robo"), but it's no biggy if it doesn't. The headlights and yellow shoulder stickers, those are the key thing that would make me want to buy a Sunstreaker sheet.

The "tarn" looks like blitzwing wearing pyjamas.

I see what they are going for. But one must paint the whole figure in dark purple or black first before applying the sticker sheet. Using Apeface head is also brilliant.

Yeah, but it's still a bit of a stretch.

Well, that's kinda the point. "Stretching" some random toys into other characters offer more sets to sell. I often use those oddball sets to make my own original characters customs and it work very well. Even on the toy that is not intended by the set. Just look a few posts above to have an idea:

Well, there's only so much you can do without outright kitbashing. If it helps, perhaps think of it as what Tarn might look like in a more vintage G1-based design.

As good as these new sets are, I'd still like to see them finish the G1 stickers that are still missing.

My G2 Thunderclash only have a normal plain :BOT: on his chest. No spare sticker sheet exist. It suck.

Yeah, those are honestly of greater importance by far. Later figures can be enhanced by these upgrade sets (at least, sometimes. I don't know that I'd call the cel-shaded windows for Jinrai Prime an enhancement, they make it look like a Transform Jr toy IMO) but they don't need them the way G1 toys do. Between how most of the G1 figures were outright designed to use stickers for half their detail and deco, how prone those old paper labels are to various forms of damage (especially if the toy was frequently played with), and how many G1 figures just never had their stickers applied to begin with...

Another set of labels for the "cassettes" that you can't find in stores anymore. Thanks Toy Hax.

Several years ago I moved to the desert. And while I do keep it cool indoors, it does get warm, so far all my stickers have hung in there. With that in mind should a few get old, I'd be more than willing to repurchase them.
