Yes. This came out back in February.

From the interview discussed here.

I've had bad experience with tape. It eventually leaves an almost unremovable residue or it ends up peeling with the paint on die cast so be very careful.

I've looked in my usual spots but no luck so far.
Movie1 Jolt or Cybertron Smokescreen will do just as well.

Cheers, Ken
you may be better off just trying to find another First Aid with better stickers..
Reprolabels has a sheet for all of Defensor, i've used them before, but you would want to get sheets for a few figures to make it worth your while.

Cheers dude, I managed to figure it out but it's nice to have the instructions on hand.
Those back spurs really threw me for a while.

Thanks.
Also how do i distinguish the original G1 bots to the re-issue ones?
I have a guy who has some but he is unsure whether they are old or new.

The most immediate/obvious difference between the original and reissue is the packaging, with reissue First Aid looking like this. Otherwise, I think you need to check the copyright stamp. Some of the 1990-91 reissues had their copyright stampage blanked out. First Aid's copyright stamp is located on the inside of the front panel section.

My First Aid is an original and the copyright stamp says, on the left hand side:
(C)HASBRO
1986

Then on the right hand side:
(C)TAKARA
CO.,LTD
1986 .JAPAN

Note that the reissue is fully legitimate and not a fake -- so if it's easier for you to find a reissue then rest assured that it is an authentic reproduction from Hasbro.

My First Aid has 1986 stamped on the inside, i checked that when i bought it.

The guy has a selection of other combiners and i was just wondering what do they have stamped where 1980-whatever was stamped on the original?

Also the Reprolabels guy, is he on ebay?
Cheers, Ken

Yeah but some fakes may still carry the copyright stampage anyway... have a look at that link I provided that discusses the differences between real and fake First Aid.

I imagine it would be similar stampage somewhere on the toy.

Awesome, thanks. My First Aid has some contradicting evidence. It appears to have the "large" rear window of the counterfeit (i think, its hard to gauge the size accurately) but the "blood" red chest piece of the original (as opposed to bright red on the counterfeit). Not so bothered about that one, picked it out of a bin of random toys for a few bucks.
Also, is there a list of pre-rub transformers anywhere? i had a search and could not find one.
Cheers, Ken
