    Ok so over the summer i got a Fort Max that never had stickers applied and he's completely minty white. I did not get the original sticker sheet with him , but i was debating picking up the reprolabels sheet for him. What do you guys think should i get a sheet and apply them ( always good fun) or leave him alone? Just looking to see what your opinions on the matter might be, thanks much . :D

    i havent ever got any repros. but i don't have anythign against them either, however since you have a mint with out, i would preserve it and keep it that way.

    You could just buy the reprolabels and not apply them. Should you decide to part with it down the road, I think the sticker sheet would sweeten the pot even more.

    Reprolabels does good work and is definately cheaper than tracking down original stickers. I generally prefer him with the stickers on as it adds a lot more detail to the look. Although for something that high end I'd probably spring for and track down originals.

    Personally I'd keep FM without stickers to keep it pristine like new, as you received it. Reprolabels for me would be good if stickers were worn and removing them revealed very slight discolorations between stickered/unstickered plastic.

    If it were me, I'd want him to look his best and would apply the stickers. But that's me.

    Yup! Did you buy him for you or to sell to someone else? I'd get him the way I like him (with stickers in this case) and proudly display him. I wouldn't care about the stickers being from reprolabels either... they do a fantastic job.

    Sticker him up.

    You'll lose some value, but he'll look so much better. The stickers break up the expanses of one colour plastic, he needs his eyes at the very least.

    Nah i mean i bought him for me, i never buy anything with direct intentions to sell it. But i never know what will happen in the future. My issue really wasn't the fact of having the stickers as reprolabels cuz i agree they are great was just more the idea as collectors to keep something that was stickers un applied that way or to not. I have two other figures Deszarus and Liokaiser that i have kept stickers un applied even though i have their original sticker sheets(And the same question ive been having with Fort MAx has been running through my head with them).

    Since the quality of Reprolabels exceeds original stickers in almost every way, I say get the Reprolabels and sticker that bad boy up! :thumb
