    I'm sorry if this topic has already been done to death, but search didn't bring up anything when I checked...

    I'm interested in getting some Reprolabels for my figures. (the DOTM Deluxe Wreckers + HA Roadbuster) However...I'm also EXTREMELY worried that the stickers will come off with time and play. (by play, I mean transform back and forth every now and again) So, before I dip my toes into the potential rabbit hole that is Reprolabels...how's the sticker quality? Leadfoot needs his sponsor logos, including the TARGET bull's-eye on his belly, dagnabbit!:)

    Reprolabels = quality.

    Seriously, you can always buy from them with confidence. It may take a while for your stuff to get to you, but the shipping is always cheap and it it always worth it.

    I've had some stickers on my figures for years and they are just as good as the day I put them on. Reprolabels aren't those cheap ass stickers that peel after a while.

    Wait, so if I e-mail her with my perpetual problem of "I need 20 million dollars in my bank account", she'll send me 20 million dollars?

    They're sometimes even better than the official sheets these days (see Piranacon).

    That was going to be my comment--Reprolabels can actually be an UPGRADE from what the toy originally came with. (a lot of recent GI JOE vehicles have had some pretty sad sticker sheets, too---you honestly have to wonder if Hasbro "forgot" how to make quality stickers, or changed suppliers or something)

    There are some VERY rare cases where you might encounter issues, but my experience has always been that these are due to the engineering of the toy rather than the quality of the stickers. In the unlikely event of QC issues, they will fix it for free, as mentioned by folks advice. I can't imagine the wreckers will give you any trouble at all. I've been using their stuff for years and recommend them without hesitation. I don't know how I would make it through collecting Animated and Prime without their upgrades.

    So from what I'm gathering here, I can put these stickers on my figures without having to condemn them to permanently sit on display untouched in fear of the stickers coming off. Is this correct?

    Awesome quality, i usually transform the figures a lot and the stickers hold extremely well, no problems at all

    The quality of their product is impeccable. Unless there are problems with your figures or how you apply them, they will last as long, if not longer, than the original stickers.

    I have been a customer for something like 10 years and seen their sets evolve from Cut it yourself stickers that are sometimes not quite right (But you could see the effort) to stuff that is BETTER than the real Hasbro/Takara stuff.

    I cannot recommend them enough!

    Anything else I should be wary of? Like if I still have a shot to correct a mistake in placement if caught immediately, or if I should ensure the areas the stickers are going are as dust free as possible, etc.?

    I think the last time I applied stickers was with G1 Hook - years and years ago.:eek:

    the stickers hold up well to peel and place a couple times, always good to wipe the figure off first though

    More than a couple of times though, and some of them might slide around, or refuse to wrap around corners.

    The only set I can think of where you need to take precaution is the old Classics Starscream set (the original 2006 version, not the G1 bone white Universe 2.0 redeco), since that has optional robot mode stickers that they tell you up front will not survive transformation and are meant for robot mode display only.

    Every single other set that they have will hold up to some extensive play. I used to be scared to touch my old '07 Deluxe Barricade because the paintwear was continuously worsening on him and I didn't want the "POLICE" deco to come off. After covering the doors with the Reprolabels, I often fiddle with him as now there's no chance of loosing paint.

    Hmmm, now all I need to do is find a language that has a day that has a word for a day of the week that ends with "c" and I'm golden!
