    I know that the hunt for animated figures has just started but how long do you think it will take for reprolabels.com to come out with some kickass animated upgrade sets?

    I've already ordered a bunch of red and purple logos from them to replace the gold and silver ones they have painted on the figures. As well as some rub symbols for lockdown.

    Also does anyone have some thoughts on what extra details the upgrade sets should include?

    I'm getting ready to order some symbols for my 'Bots. I can't really se Upgrades being all that extensive like the movie figs since the figures now don't exactly skimp on the detail. I wouldn't mind seeing some more creative ones, though.

    That would be legendary.

    Some of the curly Walther PPK engraving for Megatron's chest would be a right touch.

    Bit of a tangerine - how about some MP Starscream decal stickers for TFA SS?

    I've ordered some symbols and rubsigns. That should be all I need I think.

    As for the missing details

    I think the lack of black on bumble bee bugs me the most. Mostly missing from him hands, arms, feet, and head.

    Ratchet need some minor fixing the red rim doesn't go all the way around his head, there are some missing black on his legs and feet and the figure could use some red to cover up some of the white spots that show up when in robot mode (mostly in his gut area)

    Lockdown, looks great but I think some stickers to make his one arm red instead of black like the cartoon mode would help.

    This is what I think needs to be added to make these figures better, but then again I might just be to hung up on the small details, either way the animated figures rock.

    That's the problem with a lot of your suggestions. The matte finish on the figs makes stickers look out of place most times.

    I was about to say the same thing. I also expect elite guard faction symbols. Also, depending on how the head is made, they'll probably make a Longarm face for Shockwave.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Shockwave has a gimmick to give him the Longarm head/face.

    Heh I'd get the upgrade set if it came with one of those bumper stickers to put on bumble bee.

    I'm quoting this, but not really for the bumper sticker.(not that that wouldn't be cool, mind you.)
    The Autobot Logo in this pic is very much the same one that is used throughout the series for all the Autobots. It is not a rigid accurate depiction of the logo, and I like it. I believe the Decepticons' faction logo has also been "dumbed down" for the cartoon, and it would be neat to see a set of these simplified faction stickers, and rub symbols that use the same design. Also, maybe some "SUMDAC SYSTEMS" stickers to put on the Dinobots.

    An upgrade kit would have to be prime's trailer, not a g1 trailer but the rest of his fire engine body. i hate how weird he looks during some of the screens where he is just in cab form. It looks like the artist is confused on how he should look when just in a cab. To me it looks like prime switches between animated voyager prime and animated battle begins prime. Anyone else see the difference?

    Yeah prime's truck mode does seem to change a little from time to time when just in cab mode. I guess it all depends on what model sheet the animator is working off of when he draws it. That or it's something that happens when it's animated over seas.

    as for the dumbed down faction logos I woun't be up for that. I think it would just make the figures look sloppy looking. but SUMDAC SYSTEMS stickers sound kind of neat.

    if i want to re- label all the factions with reprolabels for all the toys currently out at retail, how many sheets of each would i need to order. i know each sheet has multiple sizes but i dont know the scale and what sizes are best for what characters. Also, why the rubsigns on lockdown? does he have them in the show? i dont remember. also is the symbol on white the best one to get?

    thanks

    Hey T16skyhopp

    I ordered the reprolabels multiple sizes sets of AUTOBOT SYMBOLS (WHITE) & DECEPTICON SYMBOLS (WHITE), because on the show all the logos seem to have white around them, and yes lockdown has a rubsign on his chest.

    I already got my reprolabels in the mail and changed the logos on the figures I have I'll try and snap some pics later today to show you how they look.

    Neat.

    I'm going with Silver backed stickers myself. A nice compromise, IMO.

    I don't see them doing animated sets. they never touched A/E/C even though there was quite a bit of stuff they could do. I made suggestions, they said they were great, they were never used. hell, there's even lots of potential with beast wars for sticker sets, and they never touched that line either.
