It's been months since I sold most of my collection, and months since I last posted. This is currently the only Transformers I have on display. This trio is just too bad ass to keep in a box.
Not to derail things, but it does make me wonder why he didn't just possess Galvatron instead. That would be one way to become leader of the Decepticons, if only temporarily.For you, the day Scourge was possessed and shot up the throne room was the most important day of your life! But for Starscream.....it was Tuesday.
Never really thought of stickering as therapeutic, but it totally is! What I don’t like is that stickering-over-molded-bits issue. Stare at them wrong and they come off. Or if you have to wash your figures and the stickers melt.Saving some money with Reprolabels.
Fortunately Artfire comes with plenty, enough to give him the gaudily-stickered look I've always associated with him and to throw Inferno a few to break up the solid blocks of color. But not too much. Just those front of shoulder panels, the hip plate details, the front-facing ends of those leg pipes, and some bits and bobs for altmode (man there's a lot of "paper over sculpted detail" stuff).
Although now my eyes kind of want to see those hip plate stickers on Artfire instead. But I'll get used to it... He's got plenty of visual interest already.
(Aside: I hadn't realized how much I miss stickering. It's therapeutic and generally very satisfying.)
