    I think I'll get that set and only apply some of the stickers. It certainly does spruce him up a bit.

    You mixed up the Rec/Batt and Stereo Cassette Recorder labels.

    Yeah, I don't like how the gold border of the tape deck sticks out to the sides, and not a fan of the red leg stickers (especialy in casette player mode), but otherwise I think the rest looks pretty slick in robot mode.

    Love it. I think he's much too plain without them.

    What's funny is I thought and did the same thing you did. I had bought this toy originally on eBay back in July but the day after it shipped I had second thoughts and eventually resold it before I even received it to Hook (hence his post). Long story short the one I bought off eBay never made it (but the seller did refund me) and I never reordered it.

    What got me thinking about this guy again which lead to my eventual purchase was the Reprolabels. It's also an awesome toy on it's own as well, though I understand how the price tag justifies holding back on him, as as awesome as he is, your still paying $80-100 for a deluxe toy.

    i did that to mine too, but left out the knee stickers and the "speaker" stickers. the knees look awsome in bot mode, but just don't look right in player mode.

    I prefer the sleekness of the standard ML deco. SW's just not an "out there" character. He looks colder and more calculating with his stock deco.

    The stickers do look so much better to me, too. Don't look now, though, but the left knee label's upside down...

    I love the sticker set. It's amazing how much it cements the resemblance to the original. I like the clean look too... but it's moot since I can't justify buying this figure as it is.

    (are you listening chinese KO makers? Electronics-free cheap KO ML Soundwave!) :) 

    However, I have to say... it's quite a testament to the original Soundwave that you can stand him next to ML Soundwave, and 30+ years later, he still looks awesome. If it weren't for his backwards-bending knees, he could be a current figure!

    That looks frickin` sweet! I wish that someone would make the MP3 Soundwave head for the G1 Soundwave toy. I hate the original one. Looks like a wierd bird face.JMO

    Super cool to me! I even went a step further, and made static cling MP3 screens that represented the tapes. The Reprolabels really do add to Soundwave's viewable presence. That said without them he would be able to hide easier, but.... I like the stickers.
