    So I just got my first G1 mold ever: Takara Collectin Reissue Hot Rod w/ FIREBOLT! Hellz yea, I am so excited.



    But I've never applied stickers before...





    I put the leg stickers on wrong, and those suckers aren't coming off without sticker damage :( .

    Is Reprolabels worth it, I mean, are they pretty much EXACTLY like the official toy stickers?

    Anyway, thanks for helping out this phailure.

    Yes, Reprolabels is absolutely worth it. It many cases the cut is better than the originals and the paper/foil that they use is more durable in my experience.

    yes! thanks, all i needed was one response and i am sold. i think i'm borderline OCD and i really want Hot Rod to be perfect.

    edit: oh ya, forgot to ask, why does it give you Hot Rod's thigh stickers, then tells you not to apply them? I didn't apply them because I thought Id inquire here first.

    That would be because the thigh stickers quickly get destroyed. The bottom of the sticker gets bumped and rubbed at by the lower leg opening that the thigh collapses into, leading to horrific wear and tear in a hurry.

    Reprolabels' version is altered to reduce the issue.

    Reprolabels are great as long as you can wait a few weeks for them. Other than that, they are well-worth the wait.
