    Exactly why I don't like Reprolabels. Stickers on a low detail 80's toy are kitsch and serve a purpose.

    But superficial detail stickers on a modern figure, that is refined with nicely sculpted detail just looks tacky and redundant.

    One or two accent stickers, maybe, but that's just too much.

    Believe me, I'll gladly bust out that credit card if I were single. Right now just can't do it, only one job and wifey is not working. Man, I'll gladly trade my original unused MIB D69 Bruticus and MIB G1 Shockwave for that MP22 Prototype, if the seller want it lol.

    MP-22 is growing on me. He looks good with a little bigger figures.

    I don't know, my hasbro soundwave needed one, and exo suit spike could use a couple. But otherwise I'd have to agree.

    Yeah, Hasbro's decos are usually lacking or not show accurate, though. Only thing I'd change about the exo-suit is that the sides of the helmet really need to be white.

    This is very tempting, but I expect the price to shoot up eventually... I asked the seller how many he knew to be in existence (since the seller may not know everything about how these prototypes were produced, it's possible there's more that they're unaware of), and got this response:

    So if true, there's six of these total. To put the potential rarity in perspective.

    Hmm, can someone make an add on white gun for Magnus? I am really missing the G1 toy accurate weapon.

    Also, I am loving that exo-suit toy. I know many kids in the 80's who dreamed of having an exosuit like that so that they could participate in Transformers adventures. I think I would have preferred an exo-suit rather than becoming engineered to be a Head/Target/Power master.

    Picked up MP-22 recently. Has anyone ever tried to mod the SXS head for KFC Citizen Stack to work on Magnus? I'm not a huge fan of his squished face...

    Aside from faction stickers I'm normally not a big fan of stickers on modern Masterpiece bots, but I do kind of like them on some of the car bots, particularly the race/rally cars. They look pretty appropriate because they're stickers in real life :)

    Me too, I don't need any stickers especially that above sheet, that still looks like crap to me, way too busy.
