I think all you guys who are passing should pass this along t Hasbro on their site. In one of my emails I said that collectors will be mad and pass on this if the stickers were not fixed.

They will really freak if they start getting emails on this. I warned them that collector sites will post the disatisfaction of the collector community.

I used the afore-mentioned rebelscum re-colored stickers for R4 and the blue cockpit stickers and they work great on Avery 3383 Sticker Project Paper.

Printed out the sitckers last night for my Starfighter, and they came out great!  I really only need a couple of them, so I had to cut them out, but it worked fine.  I do have another question, though...Does anyone have the Anakin Jedi Starfighter exclusive from TRU?  The Gren one?  Are the stickers in there color matched to the green starfighter, or the yellow one?

Well, the stickers on the green TRU Exclusive Anakin Jedi Starfighter are pre-applied.  They are the yellow set, except Hasbro purposefully left off all blast mark and the kill marks, so the starfighter looks fine.  Hasbro also left off the grey Republic logo (the one that resembles the Imperial logo), and I cannot figure out why.

I went to buy one today and it rang up $29.99 plus tax. Wasn't this supposed to be $24.99? I asked about it and they told me the price was changed today. Any one else encountered this?

I'd sure march my ass back in there and demand it!  Someone screwed up somewhere and you're paying for it.  If their website says $24.99, they SHOULD pricematch it.  If not, speak with the store manager, and if nothing, go regional/district.  Call TRU Customer Service hotline if need be!

Went back to TRU with a print out from Amazon/TRU with the price $24.99. After a few minutes of trying to find a manager, they let me have it for $24.99. That's just ridiculous that they went up on the price like that, for no other reason than to milk another $5 out of people just because they think that they can. So yeah, they actually price-matched themselves, which in a way is kind of funny.

I'm sure this isn't news to all of you, but GH.com has some info about the correct labels for Obi-Wans Starfighter.

Too little too late...most have either customized these....or avoided the starfighter altogether (like me).

If you look back at the first page of this thread it shows a lengthy email conversation I had with Hasbro and TRU about this.

Its funny how they eventually gave in. I emailed them for my set yesterday.
