Using the transformation origin

I am still working inside Automation boy.psd. So far I have scaled and moved and rotated the type, but it's not a successful match as I think even a child could see here. The angle of the I, for example, is in no way shape or form in keeping with left-hand edge of the sign and nothing really about text matches. It's a very clumpy mimic at this point. So the question becomes; should I go ahead and reapply the Free Transform command and try to finesse the results or should I undo and start over? If this were a pixel based layer, the answer would be definitely undo and start over, because every time you apply Free Transform to a pixel layer, that is a layer with an image on it, such as this greenbot layer right here which represents the green robot.

Then you rewrite the pixels inside the image. You basically rewrite all of the pixels inside of that layer, and so each and every repeated application of the Free Transform command is a destructive operation. The only exception to that happens...
