with the recent spark of debate on remakes, KO's and reproduction stickers and parts, i've been pondering a few ideas of my own. First a few points: Reprolabels, for the majority it seems, are well recieved. those who enjoy replacing old stickers can, and those who want to customise alternators, or even lego people can. Reprolabels, on occasion have reproduced limited sets, such as the takara lucky draw orion pax set, and have infringed it seems on a few fauxpas. Transrepro, in it's day reproduced hard to find parts, that the original got a few big $$ for on e-bay, even going so far as to reproduce my beloved marlboor Wj head, coupled along with reprolabels repro sticker kit, have made it possible for a wider range of collectors to atleast have a look a like in thier colections. I have an original, but i don't really care about value. i wanted it, i got it. no body really seemed to put up too much of a fuss, but theu had thier naysayers. Now we have this factory in China, pumping out old hasbro molded transformer toys, on vintage cards and boxes. the problem here, is that they are darn near identical to the originals, untill you get them side by side and feel the quality, wich, on the most part baffles alot of people, but again, this issue as it's for and against group... im in the for group, i can't wait for these re-makes. Now for my question... With the advent of such remakes, repro stickers and parts, breaking in on the market, potentially bringing down the price of such rarities ( takara issueing stepper, bring that originals price drasticly down) and the fan outcrying to remake the 4 dino cassettes, wich will ultimatly bring thier price down as well... I am in the position of such... whats the word... business men, where i have in my possesion an item that i know will hold both high intrest on the collector market, for people such as myslef, and also start a raging fire amongst anti-remake/KO collectors. What i've done, is taken my Original Canadian Pepsi Optimus Prime, Vector traced the trailor stickers and had them printed on an industry only high quality sticker paper. Compared to my original, there are subtle differences in quality, and color, but for the most part, they look really cool looking, all brand new and shiny. I did this in the wake of the RATTRAP/FRED/ME fiasco. I see now that in my rage over the event, my ideas were pretty lowdown, wanting to debunk the value of the prime that may be going back to fred... but i held back. morals got the better of me. but now i'm thinking, ok, there may be people out there that really want a Pepsi prime, and they may not care if it's original or not. I have 10 sheets printed, the printers minimum requirement to use the paper. I WILL PRINT NO MORE, they cost enough as is. DO I OFFER THESE TO THE PUBLIC, or DESTROY THEM?
