    i dont know that i like the really flashy paintjobs on some of the united releases (it works on the WFC figs for me but not so much on the g1 characters)

    what do you guys think

    United Tracks. I have asked myself the same question. Here is the thing.

    Regular Tracks is $12+ Tax in stores, Reprolabels is $8 shipped. So in total it is $21.

    United Tracks can be probably had for $30 shipped in a couple of months. The Japanese molds always go up in value.

    Also, United Tracks paint work is much more G1ish then the reprolabels. Have to say, I was kinda disappointed in the reprolabels set.

    Good timing. I just got the Reprolabels the other night.

    I usually think people get a little carried away when they go on and on about Henkei! or United being so much nicer than Hasbro (I agree that a lot are, but not to the extent of most people), but United Tracks, and especially Jazz, are really significant differences. Reprolabels does the job for me though :thumbs2:

    I want to say Hasbro, just get some Alcohol to rub the crappy flames off his hood and buy the G1 decal from Reprolabel's! Simple fix

    Jazz
    I would say.... get the United Version. Nothing against reprolabels but I HATE having to use so many stickers on a modern toy.

    Good luck! BTW, Either way its a good choice!

    I really have to order those sets. I'm really liking that updated firebrand for Tracks.

    It looks really good in person... the camera shots make it look like you can easily see the blue decal on the hood, but in hand it flows really well.

    well most of my collection is henkei (only because the chrome reminds me of the g1 toys and most of the deco's are more g1 since i never got a chance to get a lot of the g1 toys)

    and i already have the rts version of tracks and jazz both

    anybody done a comparison of both yet?

    What do you mean?

    I personally have spent a mint with Reprolabels.
    Great designs and great quality all around.

    I have always bought the Hasbro version of my C.H.U.G. toys, confident that there would either be a Reprolabels upgrade set or I could fix any ills with a little bit of Testors paint here or there.

    Plus, I personally miss the days when my toys came with a sticker sheet.

    I just spent $50 in sticker with Reprolabels they make great stuff I support them 100% I am not knocking them at all. I plan on getting both actually but if so many people want the G1 look why bother with sticker when you can have it painted on?

    Let's put it this way, I spent £15 on RTS Tracks and then saw the United version...

    That was another £25 on a figure I already owned.

    IMO the United version is that much better.

    Chrisr's looks better than United. Now that I'm actually paying attention to a United Tracks picture, that's a lame flame. The metallic blue is a lot nicer than RTS though.
