    So yeah, I got a BBTS Piranacon set coming in and was just wondering if anyone here has gotten the BBTS Piranacon and if they think getting Reprolabels would be better then leaving the stock stickers on? From reviews I've seen they seem to be pretty crappy (Quality wise?) stickers that start peeling or are on generally crooked and such.

    Would you recommend Reprolabels or do you think that affects the "G1-ness" or originality of the figure?

    If you're gonna buy the reissue, you pretty much have to buy the reprolabels. Mine was tearing and peeling right out of the box. The paper used is just awful.

    Yeah that's what I've been hearing. I wonder why they are so crappy quality?


    So you don't think though getting Repro will like... hurt it from being a G1 Reissue? Does it look a lot better?


    Yeah it's already on it's way in the mail and was wondering if I should buy a set off Repro. But the pic I wanted to see on their site of the stickers applied is not working... so damn...

    Does anyone have pics of how much better it looks with repro's on?

    repros are always good quality, they guarantee their product, the reissue set needs them bad, mine were applied like a five year old did it, and were falling off like a cheap ko's stickers do

    It looks the same, but the sticker placement will be better (unless you suck at putting stickers on), and they will be a hell of a lot more durable.

    Repro it. Although the stickers on my reissue seemed to be pretty well applied and nothing has shown any signs of peeling off... yet. If they do though I'd be right on the repro route.

    My Seacon reissue set is fine. One or two slightly wonky labels, no worse than if I'd put them on as a kid.

    I've always been satisfied with all my reprolabels purchases. I still have my original G1 Piranacon and it's stickers are starting to show their age. When it's time to replace them I'm definitely going with reprolabels.

    Well I think I'll get them. Thanks guys. But I think I'll wait to see how mine look. It couldn't hurt to order them and then I get the joy of putting them on myself... heh... but... it seems wrong maybe to rip off decals already on there... Hmmm...

    Well I got him today. ^__^

    He is so frigging cool. I am so glad I got this set.

    My stickers were in good condition actually. I mean pretty damn good. I was expecting some nightmare but I think they look rather good. I had to press a few of them down in some spots since they were lifting a bit in some area's but not overly bad.

    Sadly... I think I am an idiot and damaged one of the more important stickers... :(  I didn't realise to move seawings wing up first and was transforming his leg/beast head and I guess it clipped the wing and scrunched up and tore a bit. I am upset... and saddened... I have damaged him... :cry
