    yup..

    1 is normal stickers...
    the other is dry transfers..

    normally.. we'll just throw the stickers away lol..
    at the very least use dry transfer or get 3rd party water slide decals.. either from Bandai or Samuel Decals..

    Like what yandao says~

    Normally we will use water decals as application of it is easier than dry transfers.
    And we will get them from either Bandai (a bit thicker) or Samuel decals, or any oter third party decals sets available. I believe most gundam hobby shops in SG carries Exia decals.

    You can refer to Ghost Of Zeon Tutorial on how to use Dry transfers

    Very Happy
    Hope it clears your doubts.
