    Well, about six weeks ago, I said I was going to do this, and now here it is. I apologize for all the pics, but it's an enormous set:

    So, are you changing your G1 Metroplex set for this?

    Or maybe I should say, will this et include the stickers to replace the G1 set?

    That is an awesome, well conceived and executed set of stickers. I've never been interested in Metroplex before, don't own one, and probably never will, but I would love to have one with all those upgrades on my shelf.

    I love all the little details that make him actually look like a city, so the windows, street, and tower details really won me over. He simply looks phenomenal. Very well done!

    Any chance you'll begin to incorporate the older upgrade sets into their G1 labels?

    I do like a lot of the older upgrade sets but I hate spending 12-15 bucks for one sticker ie... Tracks roof sticker:2c: . Maybe you could sell it as a Premium package?

    Normal Labels + Delta Stars genius? :thumbs2:

    No, it's an alternative. One could still get the full G1 set, or one could get these ones instead. There would be no reason to get both, though.

    No, but as seen with Scamper, we are starting to offer some of those older sets in more logical groupings (eg: Scamper with Slammer).

    That worker on Metroplex's leg doesn't look like he's having a great day...
    Great job! Makes me wish I had a Metroplex.

    Thank you for that! You should really consider compiling the Anime Combaticons stickers together. (I would buy them instantly.)

    Awesome as always! Glad I waited to buy this older set. This set is nothing but amazing.

    Any idea on a ballpark price for this monster set? I generally try and buy in bulk from Reprolabels, and I was waiting on an extra set or two I was really after before ordering my Classics Mirage, Skywarp and Hound sets.

    This has definitely piqued my interest, as I have a partially complete Metroplex coming my way from a recent trade... I can't wait to see it posted on the site...


    One thing that might get lost in all this though, if you purchase the UPGRADE set for Metroplex, it wouldn't contain the tank tread stickers for Slammer, and the UPGRADE set for Slammer doesn't appear to have those stickers either... You'd still require the original Metroplex stickers for that, no?

    -Please correct me if I'm mistaken!

    That's beautifull! Definitly interested in this set to pimp out my Metroplex! Considered a few time getting new G1 sticker to replace my used one, but I don't like the figure enough and never got them. But this, now it's make him look much better and I'm going to get this at some point!

    Was about to ask about the tank tracks too, they don't seem included in any upgrade set :( 

    Also weird that the X10 Scamper set is different from from upgrade pack 2, I prefered the blue windows and visor and the overall more solid color instead of the all silver in the X10 set. In fact I prefer those upgrade sticker when they are solid color for a more cartoon effect, not digging silver/metalic sticker for that :(  Might get the upgrade set 2 instead, Slammer will have to stay white!

    Nope! We thought of that too, and the Upgrade set does indeed come with those two stickers. Not that there's any reason to remove the old ones, but if they needed replacing, you'd have them if you purchased the X11 set.

    Sorry, I didn't read yours yet :)  $32 for X11, and the other two are each $9.
