    Was looking at the reprolabels for Boss grimlock in the fire set & was wondering what a set would look like on a blueish car would look like & who it could be. All my altss are based on G1 characters & Id prefer it this way

    Ideas?

    edit: I was wondering how the character Boss woud look in this scheme - JL

    I can't provide an image of the set on a blue car, but you could use this link to TFUinfo to see many of the blue Transformer cars that have existed:

    For an Alt.... I dunno, maybe Freeway, Punch/Counterpunch, Battletrap, or Glyph? Actually.... after browsing through a bit, how about this guy:

    http://www.tfu.info/1992/Autobot/Boss/boss.htm

    I mean, his name IS "Boss," after all. He's blue, he's G1 (very late G1, but still G1 I believe), and he even has a two-tone hood that could look like the sticker set. His head and legs even sorta look like Alt. Grimlock's. Heck, paint his windshield and headlights red, and you're practically there!

    Hope that helps!

    Don't forget the cool guys @ reprolabels can change colors for ya too.

    If you go with the blue you might want to consider requesting the red side stripes White.
    If you go red you may want to consider going black stripes on the side.

    BTW that's a nice looking decal set ;)

    I always had Blue Prowl with the racing decals pegged for Freeway and the Red Meister with the Repro kit for Chase. But that's just me.

    Odd, the Boss figure looks more like a Cybertronian Batmobile.

    Yeah I always thought he looked like the batmobile. Im leaning towards him as I had him as a kid & the decals already say boss, so at least that would make sense
