    Back in high school, way back in the early 90's, I bought a G1 Hot Rod at a garage sale. He never had the stickers applied, and he's been on display looking kinda naked ever since. Should I go ahead and order reprolabels for him, or keep him as is?

    I like him without them. I've always thought the mechanical sticker details look a little tacky, but I'm so used to new Transformers. XD

    I say get them. I've re-stickered one of my Hot Rods and he looks fantastic.

    Depends on what stickers you're talking about. I think he looks fine with just the factory stickers. If he has those and they are in good shape, I say let it slide. If he's completely naked as in his factory stickers are gone, the definitely order the reprolabels.

    Can you post some pics of your Hot Rod?

    I took some quick pics.

    He's just how he was when I bought him back in 93 or so.

    Oh wow. That's gotta be the first one I've seen without even the factory stickers. Yes, you should get the reprolabels and put them on there.

    The stickers are like 6 bucks, you can't even buy lunch that cheap. Worst case scenario, you don't like it and you take them off.

    It's settled then. I shall order the stickers with my next check, and Hot Rod shall no longer live in the Iacon nudist colony.

    Thank you so much guys for your input!
