    Frankly, the Crossfire upgrade labels look... awful.

    Liking the option to go with or without a cockpit on the Crossfire shuttle. And the edge of the tail becoming the blade edge looks cool too. The Crossfire Hum-V stickers are ok but not as much of a change as the Shuttle's are.

    Aside from adding faction symbols, and an edge to the blade, the crossfire stickers suck. Too much purple. Black windows would have done well on Blastoff, and WTF is that supposed to be on Swindel's hood?

    i like some parts of Swindle and Blast Off... but not enough to actually buy it... was really hoping to see a Generations Red Alert to Clamp Down sticker set... or black HA Sideswipe into Wildrider... but still, i just placed an order so hopefully i'll get the new 14 logo, as well as the big compendium sticker sheet... and got some stickers for my g1 Flywheels and Battletrap, as well as finally getting the stickers for Freeway Jazz to Bluestreak... can't wait to upgrade him finally...

    I like some but not all of the stickers. I will not use the purple windshield on Blast-Off as I prefer the Drone look more. As for Swindles stickers I will have to wait and see. I will use some I think but not all. The set has been ordered.

    I can't say that the Munitioner and Explorer stickers are worth it, specially at that price.

    They don't add much to the figures.

    Personally, I think that the crossfire sets only need faction symbols. Anything else does not flow for the set correctly, considering the others are not true looking combaticons. Since they are equivilent to classics, no stickers needed.:wink:

    Yeah, the Crossfire set is mostly a miss. Beyond most of the stickers not contributing to the aesthetic of the figures very well at all, the combined Bruticus is going to look odd with two stickered members and three members with no stickers. The only parts of this set that are appealing to me are the robot mode faction logos and the blade edge. However, I still have a bunch of extra faction labels still left over from previous Reprolabels promotions and could add an 'edge' to the blade with my silver paint pen.

    As a general comment, Reprolabels seems to not have as many G1 repro sets coming out lately. Kind of unfortunate, since there's still a lot of ground to cover.

    I think the Explorer set would be a better sell if the cockpit silver sticker was seperate from the large purple piece.

    On a side note I'm trying to figure out how to approach Reprolabels with a question, I asked them if they'd be able to do thier classic rodimus set in Shattered Glass colors. really just a recolor, I assume they don't have thier entire stock preprinted so I'd think that would just be a couple minutes in photoshop, but I got an emphatic no. now they were very kind to suggest another site to look at but I'm really confused WHY it's not feasable, of course I REALLY don't want to keep emailing them nagging for a why.

    A lot of the custom sets are designed by 3rd parties, and they have deals with said 3rd parties, with what they can do and can't do.

    I agree - especially on Blastoff. It's like they're forcing the G1 color and design scheme onto something that it just doesn't fit with.

    I was looking forward to a Crossfire set but now...I'm not sure what happened. Maybe next month they'll release the good looking set.
