    I love Pun-3X's Red Alert and Takara had planned to use the Acura mold for him, thus the Red Alert label set makes sense (and I plan to order it and make my own). I also plan to order the Hound label set because the Alt/Bt Hound looks nearly identical to his G1 counterpart; again, that label set makes sense. I love the Le Mans stripes for Tracks since a Le Mans Vette actually exists. I can see an Acura customized like one for the Nightbeat. The Jazz set is good, but the Martinis don't race a RX-8, so to have their names on the sides just doesn't make sense. The same holds true for Mirage. Honestly, I think Mirage looks awesome as he came from Hasbro. If it's not broke, don't try to fix it. :D 

    I just don't see the need to try to force a round peg in a square hole sometimes. Alternators/Binaletch =/= G1. Sure homages are there, but I don't see the overwhelming need to recycle G1 on every oppurtunity in this way. Some of the labels sets work really well; some do not. This one (imo) falls into the latter category.

    Now, I'm all for that. I may even just make that (and real GTs like it).

    I would like to say that reprolabels have always impressed me with the G1 sets and the sets I mentioned above. I'll continue to support what you guys do, Delta! You do a great service to the TFandom with the G1 sets and [some of] the Alt addons are cool. Keep up the good work! *saves up money for those sets mentioned* :D

    i think its a bit much. the original strip is already very prominent, so i think any add ons should defer to it, they should look more decal-ish and not compete with the stripe.
