Does anyone know who makes the best aluminum pack decals? (that will also fit Hasbro)

It's so hard to judge, some have great metallic brushed finishes but the font is all wrong, etc.

Anyone have any experience?

As far as I can tell Mack's is the most accurate of the ones I listed.

I have not compared Macks to GBfans. Has anyone done a comparison ? Or should I compare to find the ulimate aluminum decals pack?

I prefer the Gbfans labels, they actually printed on metal sheets and I prefer the coloring. Besides the main warning label , Mack factory’s are printed on foil. The foil does mold and hold its shape which in some ways is nice. However mack factory’s other labels are awesome, printed on laminate plastic . They’re hands down the best I seen and reasonably priced

Thanks. I did not know the Mack's were considered even better than GBfans.

Does anyone know what the original props decals were (it's kind of hard to tell from pictures), were they vinyl? metallic? were they all the same or different?

They were a mixture. Mack's have replicated that with their decals, as they had considerable access to the super hero pack.

I appreciate your original question as I share it.

Thanks to the incredible hero pack reference it would appear that many different types of manufacturing processes were used on the found item labels. But still appearing to be consistent with each other despite GB2 changes.

Despite the incredible overall quality of Mack’s set I don’t think the stickers are made in exactly the same way as what is found on the original hero packs. The yellow and black label by the vac tube on the super hero (and others) appears to be a satin to semi gloss, perhaps a silk-screened vinyl, with this material thin enough to show through the shell surface texture. Mack’s cannot do this as the non-metallic labels in the set are glossy with an adhesive layer that is obnoxiously strong/thick. Is the crankcase label really a metal plate that thick? I cannot bend the corner like on the super hero or get that edge squash/chipping like on the Venkman hero pack.

Please do not misunderstand as I do not mean to be overly critical of the Mack’s set. I wouldn’t have these questions without their excellent legacy shell. I just want the most accurate stickers in look/feel and not a superior materials replica.

Also, there’s color matching. With the real-life bumper label now found, I wonder if it is really a metal-foil sticker, or maybe a brushed silver mylar instead? The gbfans shop sells a new set/pair commentating the discovery but I could not find any side by side comparisons with existing replicas.

I would also appreciate any facts or experience with these products in the existing marketplace.
