my friend got a set... the quality was very grainy. some labels were difficult to read... I'd say get them if you're in a pinch.

Do not buy from EvolutionToyShop, that seller took and is selling Ken Huegel's stickers without crediting him.

Thanks for the heads-up!

Anyone know a good, reliable source for stickers then?

Isn't that some form of copyright infringement? Is there a way to report it to eBay?

Ken is perfectly happy to let the guy do it, as he never charged for them himself... but it's still wrong in my book... but, with him not interested in pursuing, there's little we can do to get eBay to take the listings down.

You know, technically everyone here is ripping off Columbia Pictures prop department so were all a little guilty, especially those who sell parts and shells and such. I guess the way to look at it is that your not paying for the part, your paying for the time and material that just happens to be in the shape of the part ;)

Except this guy lifted Ken's designs to specifically sell them for profit, he's not doing anything benevolent like Exoray or MMM.

Laminate as in clear contact? As in old school covering your books in grade school? Or actual laminate?

Heck, go even easier! Print them out onb good quality paper, distress them if you like, spray them with waterproof clear coat, and then just use a good solid coat of spray glue on the back.

Thats what we did.

For foil looking labels, print them on clear sheets, peel those and stick them onto the shiny side of aluminum foil. Then put spray glue on the back of that, and put them on. Thats how we did a number of the stickers on our packs in my build thread.
