    pretty neat man, but I honestly wouldn't buy it, not 'realistic' enough, as in you'd never see it on a car most likely.

    although if I got it free I'd def sport it.

    Acutally, the Scion was created to market towards the hip-hop crowd who take pride in customizing their vehicles. This is one set from repolabels that has GREAT potential of being realistic, in this regard. :)

    I'm with RHansen on this one. I love custom cars (drive one myself) and yes the Scion is marketed towards customizers. The labels are just too damn eighties. It looks like a design you would find on a Matchbox car.

    I really like the hood, but without the swirls. Might want to keep that part simple.

    Keep up the good work!

    or speakers? hehehe I like where you're going with this set, but it definitely needs tweaking. I think the side stripes need to be made smaller, instead of covering half the body. It almost seems to simple in over-all design (the sides) need some fading, or a fancier shape I think to look more modern. The swirl over the "cassette" door seems out of place.

    I like them, but they may be a bit much. Consider something in the same spirit, but a little more subtle.

    Oh, I can't change them anymore - was just wondering if they would be well received :) 

    These were designed by the same designer who made the Fallen and Classics Trailbreaker sets. Alison's actually very avant-garde, so the placement of the elements is, to say the least, intelligently executed. She said she was going for "retro", so that explains the 80's look, and in her defense against not being subtle enough, she did have something a lot more subdued until I told her it needed to be busier, so that's probably my fault :(

    the "busy" problem is that it makes look like what you'd expect to see on an ice cream truck hehehehe I think with stickers that huge on the sides, that it looks off, with nothing at all on the front quarter-panels.

    Damnit. It looked great to me until you said Ice Cream Truck. Now that's all I see.

    What if there was another sticker for the front fender that was red and simply connected the hood graphic to the top red stripe on the doors. Would that help at all?

    I like them, but I'm an child of the 80's, so maybe I'm biased.

    That could certainly help, yes.

    How does it look in robot mode, that may help with people's decisions.

    I was gonna say, if you continued that side graphic all the way around the sides of the vehicle, that would make it look better IMO....instead of it being just "right there at the doors"

    I think as far as the "retro"ness of the graphic goes, you could fix it pretty easily by making it a DJ van. "BLASTER MOBILE DJ SYSTEMS: BEATS DROPPED AND BLOCKS ROCKED SINCE 1985" or whatever.

    I don't have this particular figure, but that seems like a happy compromise - there's a reason for all the crazy deco, because it's a flashy company car. Other than that, yeah, I'd like to see the red connect all the way around - it looks a little disjointed as-is.

    The Autobot symbol on the hood bothers me, as it would make Blaster a dead give away if he was incognito during a mission...

    I aways thought certian color schemes wouldn't translate well and with BTA Broadcast I can see why.

    For Broadcast he should be a news truck. Blaster customs as the truck would be red (no brainer) but I think a side view of a blasting speaker with light grey music notes on the rear doors extending to middle of the front doors and maybe a light gold outline of the yellow chest on the G-1 figure on the hood would work better.
    The Autobot symbols should only be visable in bot mode.
