    More awesome Classics sets!


    I was quick to make this set for Generations Hot Spot, based on some prior work by Mike:

    Reprolabels.com - Hot Spot

    The long overdue set for Octane is finally complete, thanks to Craig:

    Reprolabels.com - Octane

    And he also brings us a set for the new Hegemon:

    Reprolabels.com - Megatron

    Mike created this set for Legends Megatron:

    Reprolabels.com - Megatron

    And Justin puts his GiJoe knowledge to good use for RTS Deep Dive:

    Reprolabels.com - Deep Dive

    We also switched up our free give away to... you guessed it... Autobot symbols :) 

    Reproduction TF symbols and replacement toy symbols - Reprolabels.com

    I really like the Hot Spot set. The other ones are nice too. I need to buy me some reprolabels soon. I got a ton of classics that could use some cool stickers.

    After all of the negative comments in the Hegemon thread, I'm really surprised they went ahead and released the set as-is. The weird thing is that the sample pics on the reprolabels site don't even show the bot pics hardly at all. There are better pics in the thread here that show much more detail. I personally won't be picking up that set, as I don't like the chest swirls and I don't understand why they put inner arm details on top of the forearms.

    Because that was the only place they fit. And there are optional chest decals without the swirls.

    Yeah, they still don't look right at all.

    I do find myself usually really liking the overall look of the reprolabels sets, but still only using some of the stickers rather than all of them, but with this one in particular, it just doesn't work for me. The placement is all wrong and it makes Megs look too much like G1 rather than an updated Classics figure.

    Can't please everybody. If I make it G1, people say its not Classics enough. If I update it, people say its not G1 enough. Can't design two sets for each figure.

    The Hegemon set is disappointing.

    I like the Defensor reference in the Hot Spot set. I may have to get that down the line.

    This. I think the shiny stickers stick out like a sore thumb. Also no eyebrow sticker?

    I agree. Needs to be more G1 cartoon Megatron and less G1 toy Megatron

    Why do they keep making stickers to cover molded detail? Do they not realize this is a terrible idea?

    Also, tacky stuff like Defensor's face on a flat panel needs to stop. The sticker designs need to go back to the style of adding detail rather than looking like stickers from the 80's which were designed to add detail on flat areas and is out of place on modern toys which actually have that kind of molded detail now. Add to that, don't distract.

    Deep Dive done as the GI Joe Killer Whale looks SWEET. Instant order!

    I think the Hegemon amd Hot Spot and Deep Dive look GREAT!

    This set is very dear to me because this is the first time I suggested something on Reprolabels forum and they made it!

    Dr. Wu could make a tiny Cutter figure the size of his Partners figures for Deep Dive.

    The whole G1 vibe is why I mostly have gotten reprolabels for Prime and Animated. I understand where they are coming from but my classics styled figures I personally dont want all of the 80s looking decals all over them. Id prefer simpler sets like missing lights, bot mode details, etc. Just have to be picky on which sets I buy.
