    I have a set for Prime and before I put them on I was curious if anyone here has them, used them and what ya'll think about them.

    My Prime from childhood needs to have his autobot symbol put on his arms as well as replace his knee stickers. I just picked up a cherry Prime that has no stickers on it at all. This guy is almost straight out of the box he's so clean and tight in the joints (it's hard to even pull his arms out to transform). So while I would love to put these stickers on him I'm afraid they'll look less than stellar.

    So, thoughts?

    They're wonderful; I've ordered from them many, many times. I wouldn't have any hesitations about using them to add to your vintage piece. Get to stickerin'!

    Reprolabels rules! I have one set for my metroplex and other for doublecross, applied. The quality is very good.

    Thanks, I'll get to stickerin' ;)  I can't wait to put them on this new Prime, though he does look tight without anything on him.

    I think I might be ordering some for Sludge too. Thanks again!

    EDIT: Can you tell which ones are repro and which are vintage if I mix them on the same figure?

    you'll be hard pressed to find anyone here who HAS NOT used reprolabels. and harder still to find anyone with anything bad to say about them. Yes they are slow sometimes, and they get busy and are slow to answer e-mails, but the product is Amazing, and surpasses anything hasbro includes with the re-issues, and most certainly just KILLS the original 1980s labels. They are sharper, cleaner cut, more on center, vivid colors, and on very good, thin stock.

    i have replaced nearly every transformer in my collection with reprolabels. And now even use them for my G.I.Joe collection.

    you have nothing to fear

    Reprolabels are excellent. I have used them many times. If one of my figures needs a new set, I always turn to them and the figure looks sharp again. The only downfall is that it takes awhile for your order to arrive because it is a very small business that has tons of orders to fill. But in the long run, they are well worth the wait.

    Reprolabels are pretty damned good, but sometimes the colour matching is not perfect. Teal on original/reissue stickers is blue on Reprolabels stickers.

    Yeah, odds are the Repros will be the ones that look better. Actually true.

    Reprolabels are awesome. I've used their Binaltech sticker conversion kits... basically transforming two Autobots into Predacons. The tolerances are astounding... when they say super-accurate, they MEAN it.

    Given the choice of applying a sticker sheet from Hasbro, and the Reprolabel version, I'd probably go with the Reprolabel version, because theirs are so much cleaner.

    Too bad they don't have the set with the yellow bumper sticker anymore. Not sure why they don't offer a cartoon style Prime by itself.

    Has anyone else had this issue with the labels? That's now one Prime, two Sludge sets and the Jazz one where the autobot logo is just all sorts of not smooth.

    I have used them a bunch of times also, with nothing but great results. Most recently I tried their Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers reprolabes to refurbish my original MMPR Morpher. I plan to put this on eBay with that sword gun thingy it came with.

    Is there another site that does G1 stickers that ya'll know of? I love the repro stuff but it's the autobot symbol that is killin' me. I refuse to put it on my figures and they look goofy without a faction symbol.
