    So, i'm looking at getting some reprolabels for the first time...namely to put an autobot symbol on "Defender's" chest and on iGear's base. What background should I get? Clear/white/silver/mirror...are they all equally good stickers? What kind of sticker do most figures take, since I'll have a ton extra to use.

    Any other recommendations as far as 'must have sets'?

    I'm a sticker noob and honestly don't like to put them on...too worried about misaligning them.

    I think recommendations would help if we had an idea of what else you've got.

    I will say two things now however:

    1: I'd go with the clear sticker base for Springer and the iGear base. Silver and gold borders work on some sets, but that generally only applies if they're going on a similarly colored background (ie; a red autobot logo on DIA Commander's shoulders would merit a silver border to at least set the insignia apart. A colored background for a red logo on a yellow chestplate or a tan/orange wall would just look odd (IMO anyway).

    2: If you own the Fansproject G3 trailer; get the sticker set for it. I cannot recommend this one enough.

    I've got most everything classics and a lot of 3rd party pieces. Good sticker sets for things I may not have could induce me to buy too:)

    Everything they do is fantastic. No matter what you choose, it'll be great.

    Agreed.
    I've spent hundreds of dollars with them.
    All of the upgrade sets (Animated, classics, movie) are great.

    They can sometimes take a bit to get to you, but the wait has always been worth it. Their product is great.

    As far as Defender goes I'd go with a clear decal. I put on a silver, and ideally would've used a clear one. I think it works better with the aesthetic of the product.

    Just got myself a set with white background. I like the white outline around the Autobot insignia, plus it'll break the 'gray monotony' on Warbot.

    I was about to order some of those faction symbols myself.. but I wasn't sure which size to get. Anyone have any advice on which sheets I should order for most Animated figures, and Fansproject stuff?

    i've been ordering from them since delta released his very first printed wheeljack set and recently got a lot of the newer stuff.

    compared to the old stuff, the paper weight is much thinner so it conforms to more complex shapes and lays down a lot better than the old thicker stickers.

    they used to also be notorious for really slow shipping but the past two orders I got a shipping confirmation email and received the labels very quickly.

    It used to a take about a month to receive the order. Now, it takes about ten days to receive it. They improved on their shipping speed tremendously.

    I hope this is true for the most part. Every time I hear that they "improved on their shipping speed", I seem to hit a wall every time with that. I've had to constantly to check with Jessica on the status of my orders before.

    I dunno, man... I ordered an Overlord sticker set a few months back and it came in the mail like a week after I sent the PayPal. However, I do remember my Micromaster Devastator upgrade set taking like three weeks. Then again I ordered that a long, long time ago.

    Well, the animated upgrade sets might be a good idea, but in terms of faction symbols, they usually come on a sheet with a number of sizes, so you should have some choice as to what you want.

    Also, the thing to remember with their shipping time is that they can get swamped, just like any other business, so patience is key. You'll get your stickers, rest assured.

    Well, I saw they have two sizes for sale, a $7 and a $3 sheet, and I thought maybe the $7 sheet ones would be too large for some of the deluxes. Wish they had measurements on their site!

    oh, maybe my order size had to do with the faster turn-around.

    the first time it was 4-5 classics/henkei sets.

    this most recent time it was the BTS trailer upgrade set, autobot labels, and a sunstreaker set.

    both times it got here about a week after i paid :)

    I'm not interested in all these upgrade sets for Classics etc, but do want me some minty-fresh G1 replacement stickers. Hearing they've improved their shipping time definitely makes me want to place an order ASAP.
