    Just wanted to get your thoughts on a few things:

    1) Anybody fix the problem with G1 tracks, where the legs don't close on the alt mode?

    2) Does reprolabeling affect the overall value of a bot?

    Thanks!

    Not sure on this one. Going to leave it for other folks.

    This is kinda subjective. People on these boards have discussed it, and I think the general consensus is the final value of a bot - reprolabeled or not - is up to the seller. For example, if you put a cleaned-up, reprolabeled Wheeljack on Ebay that was all 1984 parts EXCEPT for the decals, I'm sure that you'd find a buyer for the price you wanted. You might have one or two people stick their nose up at it, but you'll have just as many buyers that are really interested.

    So, yeah. Reprolabeling a bot - final price of the bot is subjective. Some people won't care, some will. Regardless, you'll probably find someone who will match the price you want.

    There is really no way to fix the leg problem with Tracks. The tabs that hold the legs in place are made of a very thin aluminum-like metal so they can flex. Unfortunately they tend to catch during transformation, and once they do thats it. If you try to bend them back, they break completely. I actually haven't looked inside the reissue Tracks to see if this has been changed to a thicker piece or not, but thats really all thats needed.
