    I've been talking with Delta at Reprolabels about the possibility of an upgrade set for Delicate Warrior, but it isn't clear whether there would be enough interest. We all know the stickers she comes with are puzzling and lame, and she doesn't absolutely need a lot in the way of stickers... but she does at least need a smaller Autobot symbol for her upper chest without trimming it, and something to fill the indention on the car hood. Maybe while we're at it we can think of other details...

    So, would you consider buying an upgrade set for this Arcee, and if so, what is your wishlist for such a set?

    Please voice your support in my poll at the Reprolabels forums!

    My wishlist:

    -Small Autobot logo for upper chest (show accurate, will hide in vehicle mode)

    -Autobot logo to look better in the hood indention than a generic one. Possibly with a white, silver, or metallic pink background. Possible with air vents or other unobtrusive tech details to fill space.

    -Show-accurate detail (red) for the rectangle on Arcee's waist

    -Gray sticker to cover the pink waist

    -Tech details for the vehicle dashboard

    -Color matched pink sticker to make the center section of her pelvis match her hips (again, more show accuracy)

    -Optional grey stickers for the braces around her ankles.

    -Optional stickers to change her toe color from pink to white.

    I'd have to look carefully at the figure and the cartoon to come up with a list of what I'd want out of an upgrade set. I haven't done that. But I'm in favour of it. It's a great figure and I imagine it could be made even better by a repo label set.

    I could post up some images for comparison, if it would help.

    I'm not sure she is missing anything.

    I think she's fine without stickers.

    I was gonna suggest that you do this when I first saw the thread, but apathy took over & I didn't... but yeah.

    Getting a pic in the OP might improve your chances, and so might providing a link to a thread on the Reprolables forum where you're gathering interest for the set. I guess you could always pm people later to do it or something, but at least that way you'll get some immediate attention to fuel you topic there too.

    I seriously doubt a set will be made. It's a figure that most of us (including myself) do not own. The demand is insufficient.

    At $120 a pop for this figure, collectors have looked and passed on it due to the high price tag.

    Well, another option would be to make a somewhat universal set that'd work on multiple Arcee figures. I mean if nothing else, we have both the Igear & PE, as well as the TF Prime ones that might be able to hornswoggle themselves into the same stickerset too.

    OP updated with some comparison to the animation model, and a link to a Reprolabels community poll.

    Well I've already put the Autobot sticker on and I'd have to see what the other stickers look like on the figure before I would commit. So I'm a maybe I guess.

    I don't think I would be intrested. I'll add a small Autobot symbol some day but I think she'll be fine with that.
