    I really like that G1 upgrade set, but I wish their Alternator sets would be more sticker for the bot and less for car. The hood sticker is pretty cool, but side make Blaster look like ass. They need to keep with a style that is more G1 like the Hound and Tracks stickers, and less ghetto pimp my ride style.

    While I appreciate what they tried to do here, for me it's a bit too, uh... messy, I guess (?). The white swirls and the big "BLASTER"... I realize it's trying to integrate his old elements into a car deco theme, but I suppose I prefer simpler designs closer to G1. The Alt Grimlock and Alt Silverstreak sets, for example, aren't to my taste, but again, I can see the work that's gone into them.

    More winners from reprolabels. Pretty soon I have to put a large order. I need to reprolabel my entire collection.

    The Barricade set is really cool it takes the paint applications and stickers from the Premium Barricade in a sticker pack and the Frenzy flipping off the people sticker is CLASSIC!

    That Brwan upgrade looks nice, I might have to get it if even though I don't have Swindle or Hound and I can always put them on the B/S/T forums.

    SECONDED!!


    PS - Delta, I already got the first Barricade upgrade and I have no issues with my door paint. Any way I can just get the Frenzy decal?

    Seconded. I'm not paying 75 bucks+ for a half-dozen different sets to piece together all the bits just to do Bruticus.

    I like the idea of the Blaster set, but I think I agree with a few others here, it's just not doing it for me. I'm almost tempted to buy it cuz Blaster is one of my top 5 TFs but I feel like it's too busy I guess.

    For me the set could either
    a) do without the blaster name
    OR
    b) get rid of the circle/speakers design.

    I feel like removing just one of those elements would be fine by me

    Oh and that Swindle and Brawn set are pretty rocking, but I don't own Swindle and I'm not paying $12 to put a sticker face on my Brawn. If anyone buys the set and doesn't want the Brawn face sticker let me know and I'll pay a fraction of the cost to take it off your hands

    Isn't Brawn a Land Rover? If so, why put Jeep stickers on it?

    Hmmm, for Swindle you should have extended the chest stickers to cover up the black neck part as well. It looks weird to just see the chest stickers end on either side of the head

    That's what I said in the Toyark.

    Also, I'd like to see the new Barricade upgrade on a figure before I do anything.

    I have been on the fence in the past, but these G1 upgrade sets are so nice so I am curious what other fans have to say.

    On the one hand the sets provide a way to extend the enjoyment of the G1 toys. Choosing, buying, receiving, applying and admiring will no doubt be fun. On the other hand putting stickers on them feels like it would hurt the resale value or against the idea of having a G1 collection. Putting it together: they are my toys, and I am not using them as an investment (with all the reissues it is really just sentimental value anyway) and some of the stickers look cool.

    Thoughts?
