    Delta, I might take you up on the offer next time I buy some stickers with you, unless you've moved, I think we're still in the same city. Would be cool to see where the magic happens. :)

    I wasn't planning on ordering anything more than a Heavy Labor set (if they ever release him so you can do it) in the near future, but you had to go and make this.

    I got these today and applied them. Hardest part was making sure I was putting them where they go. LOL when I finished and stepped back to look at him, I was amazed. It's hard to even grasp how much of a difference these make in person. I remember as a kid I loved ptting on the stickers because it made the toy "yours". I had that smae feeling all over again. It was like I could imagine being in that city. It was a great feeling. Now I'm really tempted to find a Trypticon so I can get the upgrade set for him too. Delta really pulled out all the stops with this set and I appreciate it so much. Afterall, it's the reason I bought Metroplex, so that tells you how much I like these stickers.

    Hey Delta, any plans for a Maximus add on set in the same style as the Metroplex and Trypticon sets with the strong focus on the city mode?

    Amazingly beautiful set. I might do what others have been doing here and get myself an Encore Metroplex just for this sticker set. It's that gorgeous!

    I have bought LOADS of Reprolabels stickers over the years, and they have never disappointed me. Delta and Reprolabels have kindly sponsored our convention in the Nordic with free stickers several times, and our attendees are always amazed at the quality of the stickers.

    Anyone claiming they're too expensive or not worth it obviously have no clue of what they're saying. Just my two cents :) 

    Will be placing another large order soon! :D

    Hey all, sorry if I'm dredging old ground but really wanted to tell somebody that I've spent the last couple days spending some quality time with my Metroplex, applying the Reprolables upgrade sets to him and his cronies and man, does he looks sweeeeet right now.

    Took me a few months to get around to scraping pennies to order them up but seriously - well worth it. Feels like a bit of an outlay but these things are incredible, the moment you receive them you know you're in for a treat and thats waaaay before you step back and think 'done'! The look and feel to the stickers is brilliant. This is my first Reprolables order I should maybe add and am slightly awestruck right now! Total bargain.

    My beloved Metro is alive, I can hear his repair bays beeping away merrily such is the level of detail in these decals! Mostly the windows have been talked about previously but wow, all the little dials and monitors and buttons and wires make a top-down view pretty cool too but really, City Mode is where the real love is for sure. I thought robot mode was cool (thats where I started applying) but truely, things got better!

    Also got the Scamper/Slammer and Six-Gun sets and honestly, you can't have one without the other, they all look so much better its amazing.

    I took some before-and-after shots but they've already been posted brilliantly by Alldarker so won't go again. Cool for my own referance though, and I'm not ashamed to say that I think I did a bang up job in putting these things on, even if I do say so myself. Was sort of dreading it as it was a definite first for me, but a careful hand and a pair of tweezers later and Whoot!

    I'm prattling on, sorry. Got too much love for this right now - again, sorry if I'm re-digging old dirt but I'm too excited! Got a use for some stray mini-cons now, and they're all going to look so fine!

    Delta, please - keep up the fantastic work.

    I've got the reprolabels upgrades for Scamper, Slammer, and Sixgun. I gotta say, they make these otherwise drab figures look so much better. Slammer now has discernable markings and lights, Scamper now has hubcaps, headlights, windows, and new robot mode details, and Sixgun's upgrades make him really pop with his new striping, the fingers on his gun-arms, eyes, knees, just a necessary upgrade for these pieces. As soon as I finish stripping metroplex of his factory stickers, I'll order the reprolabels upgrade set X11 to finish off the upgrade to metroplex (whom I have all but one part, Scamper's Pistol)

    Ha, great to hear from you both! There's a lot of love around for the Metro, so its aaaaall good.

    Strange, there always seem to be Scamper pistols on ebay and I think you can pick them up at a reasonable price. Got a feeling the one I bought from there was a re-model and not an original (despite it saying it was an orig.). Didn't fit in the little dudes hands too well at all, but a lick of nail varnish on the gun-stub cleared that right up.

    Yay for Metro, his little pals, Reprolabels and ebay! Oh, and nail varnish - whoo!

    I bought this set even though I don't have Scamper (Metroplex's car). So, if anyone's interested, I have all the upgrade stickers for Scamper in my sales thread for $3.
