    Does anyone here buy reprolabels? Are they just as good as the originals? I placed an order about 3 weeks ago for some, and at check out it said 2 weeks for delivery, and a week later I get an e-mail saying they'll be here in a week. It's been 2 weeks since I received that e-mail and I still have no reprolabels yet. I shot them an e-mail and they said I'll get them today but I didn't. Is this normal and are they worth the wait? LMK. Thanks.

    I've waited as much as 4 weeks for delivery, but they are usually worth the wait. Some of their sets have a couple of stickers that don't do the originals justice, but the majority of what I have recieved from them is top notch.

    Ive waited up to 5 weeks for an order. (it was a large order though - and one of the sheets needed to be made for my order). I have purchased many sheets from them and they have ALL been outstanding. The metallic stock they use is alot better than the originals by a long shot. Every TF I've restored has gotten the action form Reprolabels, and they all look fantastic. I'm waiting for them to make a Targetmaster Sureshot set, the last email I got said they are working on it. I'm restoring Defensor and Superion currently and will be getting stickers for them like I did with the rest of my combiners. I dont like waiting for anything, but the consistent high quality from Reprolabels makes it worth it. Plus you do know they are in Canada right?

    Most likely you should have them soon if they emailed you and said that they had shipped. Keep in mind that they are in Canada so shipping time is going to tend to be slow. I'm fairly close to them and it still takes 5-7 days to get to my door.

    I barely found out that they're in Canada. I was just worried. At the time I didn't know they were in Canada, it's cool though. Now, will they bring down the value of a TF cause they're not the original stickers?

    I love reprolabels and their product. The wait is very much worth the while.

    They are setting up a new facility so it might take a bit longer for orders to ship.

    About your 'investment' (Toys are not an investment!) The value of your G1 TF with original C10 stickers should be higher then with repro's. But if your toy has stickerwear applying repro labels should raise the value.

    The quality is nice, but the feel is very different from originals.

    I stand corrected. My toy's are not investments. They're my pleasure. Thanks for answering my question.

    Don't worry too much about Reprolabels. Delta is a top-notch fellow and he does his best. He can get a little swamped sometimes, but I think we all know how that is. He will always answer, in general, and he doesn't willfully ignore anyone. So if you've asked after an order and not heard back, try again (politely, of course).

    I suspect things will improve as new equipment comes into play across the entire Reprolabels line, since the new gear should cut production time signifigantly.

    Did anyone buy the one's for the Classics/Universe 2.0 series? My order was mainly for G1, but I was impressed with the pictures of the Classics, so I ordered for my Legends class Jazz. I was really impressed with that one.

    I have most of the classics sets. The legends jazz set is outstanding, you'll see.

    Here's a few pics of some of the classics sets I have:

    I saw quite a few that I want. I like the ones for WST also. I am going to keep on ordering from them. I saw that they were also doing other things I saw Power Rangers on there. I wish they had GI Joe.
