I have a laser printer myself. It's been a real pain to find compatible white sticker paper. Luke has some that worked pretty well for me. I just picked up a new Avery product at the office supply store so we'll see how that goes.
I also often use the Avery clear label sheet. They make one that's basically just one big sticker. The thing I like about clear is that you don't have to try to colour match. Often I can get away with a clear label and painting the bits of the back with white before applying.
Does anyone have a designed decal they would reco to make this version of the Guardian costume?

It's a whopper!
Definitely in the minority, but killing Optimus Prime and moving the story forward is the best, smartest thing the Transformers writers could have done.
Yup. I think as an adult I would agree if it wasn’t a children’s property. The movie had a completely different story tone which is great— except that wasn’t communicated to the audience. If I was a parent I’d be taken aback if I was taking my kid to see a cartoon movie of a show that suddenly went very dark without warning.
Does anyone have a sticker paper they recommend?

I am so glad this set is getting released!
I begrudgingly ordered but Dead Prime is making my list as the worst Minimate of the year on principle 😂 That figure owes me therapy!

I actually deleted a sentence in my reply about how I sorely want "Rusty Collins specifically in the Liefeld costume that he never wore in a comic".
You are my self friend.

Please promise me the AT and don’t deliver in favour or RAH… 😂

I feel we only need the one Warpath (and wishing for more than one is ridiculous with the current snail's pace of releases). The design didn't change ENOUGH between Liefeld and Capullo to justify two. Capullo just gave him cleavage. The Marvel Legends figure is exactly what the Minimate should be based off (likewise, they did a Capullo Sunspot in that same wave of figures). I don't even remember Feral having a Capullo costume. Wasn't it just a pink bathing suit? I'd consider that a waste of a figure and over Warpath, (either version of) Sunspot or a Stryfe is terrible. Reignfire would be cool but again it feels wishful to think this line is going to ever have a character like Reignfire offered. I could spend ages asking what about Adam X the X-Treme? Gideon? I've long wanted a Rusty Collins and X-Terminators Boom-Boom. I don't think any of these are likely. I hold out hope for a Warpath and Sunspot to at least complete a line-up.
Her costume was different as it didn’t have a Tunic or the shoulder pad things. There’s also the case of her hair getting burnt off.
I agree with you on the deep cuts. It will be really hard to get to my New Mutants Holy Grail:
I did a kit bash Rusty in his Red shirt and khakis and one of Skids but sadly those two characters were victims of the Liefeld of it all. Sadly, these boxsets, even if sold at LCS need anchor figures and Cable *is* the X-Force anchor. So if I *have* to have one then I’d prefer the Mastermind/Professor X trick and have it be Cable as Stryfe. Exodus has come back into relevancy so I think that would also help. Sunspot also is a current star of the X-Avengers Realm. I do love the idea of just adding in the pieces to make both a Liefeld and a Cap Warpath. I was hoping we’d get a larger Minimate for him similar to Strong Guy but at this stage of the game, beggars and what not.

In terms of completing the Capullo lineup, I like the idea of putting Sunspot, Warpath, and Feral with Exodus, but would elect to give the final slot to Reignfire.
Stryfe would perhaps be the more desired choice, but Stryfe would be more at home in a Liefeld-based assortment.
I just feel like they need a “name” to sell the Boxset and a fake Cable (Cable as Stryfe) would work to get the set sold in.

Siryn wasn't on the team too long before the redesign. Warpath was essential to both rosters. Yeah, we have two Thunderbirds that could work so I suppose dropping original recipe Warpath makes more sense, but I'd prefer a 'Mate with shoulder pads and some bulk.
Well, we still would need Liefeld Sunspot, Skids, Rusty, and Wolfsbane not to mention Boomer’s other costumes. One could argue we need a Cap and a Liefeld set!

Then I'd begrudgingly drop original recipe Siryn. And be super vocal about her absence on release.
And here I thought you’d drop a Warpath! Well played with the plot twist!

They did a batcave?
Jada has given us a Batcave http://www.andromedadesignslimited.com/batman-batcave-nano-scale-light-up-environment.aspx
a Hogwarts, and Two daily Bugles! The bugles are a scale fail but the Batcave and Hogwarts work depending on the angle.

Weapon X, lies, and video tapes box set:
wolverine in dept h suit (with alternate parts), sabretooth in dept h suit, maverick, updated omega red, and either silver fox, beast, or that weird android that appears (talos?). Great episode of the cartoon with lotsa great characters
Now we are TALKING! I’d love this and buy multiples just for the accessories for my Joes!

Capullo Sunspot, Warpath, and Feral with original looks Warpath, Siryn, and Boom-Boom in a six-pack would please me to no end.
SAME. But that’s not the game can only have 5.
Quick revival bump for this post since the game has changed and now only 5 characters per set.
I would love:
Wrecking Crew with Thor.
X-Force: Knock out the Greg C costumes of Sunspot, Warpath, Feral, Exodus, and Stryfe or Cable as Stryfe.
60 Years of X-Men: Changeling, Morph, Sprite, Bunny Wolverine, Maggot.
WCA: Mockingbird, White Vision, Hank Pym, Firebird, Thing
that should take us 3 years to get through

The news that this stuff was getting rereleased was awesome news to me. Minimates based on these properties would be great, but sources have told me for years that both ROM and the Micronauts are difficult licenses and certainly do not belong to Marvel.
I’ve heard the same thing. As much as I want Rom figures I’d be concerned we’d never get them.

this looks pretty cool, actually
That’s awesome! Hope it’s closer in scale to the bat cave rather than the daily bugle set.

Lord knows it's time for Dr. Who mates.
Maybe they'd regenerate some interest in the minimate line.
Dr Who Mates are right under Buffy Mates and STNG mates for me. I’d devour them all!
I’m not familiar with last Ronin but I’m excited to get a female domino mask head!

Army-builders are always welcome.
Always welcomed and yet rarely offered.

I'd buy the crap out of anything that gets me 3 colours of Next Gen uniform, and a sculpted Klingon head. You don't need to be too skilled of a customizer to take it from there. A Geordi head would be nice but not a deal breaker. No red uniforms would be even better as I already have a ton of extra Picards.
Yeah I am only keeping the red shirt off the chance someone hasn’t army built Picards 😂.Geordi’s visor could be intimidating for a new fan while older fans would just find a Cyclops visor. I’d hope a “team” set with variants like the Series 2 Power Rangers would be a slam dunk and lead to a DS9 team pack, Voyager team pick, etc with an Alien army builder pack through out. As a non OG Trek fan it’s annoying to see them get so much love while TNG is ignored. Especially after finding all my playmate toys!

It's all good. I've actually been around since the days of yore it seems. Well before DC came and went and in the time of 3" giants like Bruce Lee. I just don't usually post a lot. More of a lurker all of these years but I have close to one of every minimate ever released. Even sets I had no real interest in have gotten purchases like Desperately Seeking Susan (never seen it), 24 (never watched an episode) and iZombie (never watched it)...but I have probably 3-4 sets of each of those properties and have used many for customs. I think other than some promo or convention exclusives I'm only missing Lt. Gorman from the Aliens APC set, the ELF box set, the Netflix Iron Fist box set and the Hawkins from the Predator wave 2 blind bags. Never found those or saw a good deal on any of those.
Anyway, I'm just trying to do my part to keep minimates and in this case particularly GI Joe minimates going. I'm a huge Joe fan so this just means a lot to me. I got three new people to buy sets just this last week, 2 co-workers and cousin. None had even heard about these and once I showed them they were interested...of course every one of them asked if there were Cobra Troops to back up the Commander yet. I told them buy a set and maybe soon.
Welcome back. And agreed, pick up sets and pray. Otherwise, we’re gonna have to beg and collect our Pennie’s to bribe Luke into doing a set.

I'd keep aliens in episode-specific SKUs with a variant main character. Depending on the alien it could also be a standalone army-builder set.
I would if I thought we’d get that far down the wave. Given that our Star Trek TNG pals haven’t gotten that many chances I think they’d just get a one box set so I’d want to make sure we got one of each colour (red,blue,yellow) with the harder heads to make (Worf, Data, Laforge) as we can kit bash easier characters like Tasha Yar, Riker, etc. and because I need conflict I need at least one alien. We have a Borg so a Romulon or someone else so we could army build.

So many options for figures. Mostly i’d just want the team in matching uniforms and the high evolutionary
Very simply I’d do it like we got the Avengers Suits. A nice 4 pack with swappable parts.
Bummed we didn’t get GOTG v 3 mates. Feels like the end of an era.
