Reprolabels May Update

Reprolabels have sent out their May update, with a selection of new sticker sets for adding extra details to your Generations and third party toys along with a set to restore the classic Generation 1 Micromaster Anti-Aircraft Tank set.

Even more great sets have been created over the last couple months:

Continuing the awesome selection of Fall of Cybertron set, Mike has made sets for Blast Off, Onslaught (including stickers for Bruticus) and two differently colored sets for Ultra Magnus. One is a "Blue Spark" set, and the other a "Red Spark" set. He's also made a couple of very extensive sets for the iGear Medical Specialist and Weapons Specialist.

Meanwhile, Justin created this work of art for TFC's Photron toy as well as additions to his Kreon sticker sets (Bludgeon and Springer).

Lastly, an addition to our Generation 1 sets, this time for the Micromaster Anti-Aircraft Tank.

Ooh those blue stickers look real nice on foc magnus. Between them and the transformazing upgrade armor he might be a fig really worth grabbing soon.
Scaleface
Lots of third party love.

Huh...for once I don't really dig anything. The stickers for Car Crash seem a bit off and ill fitting. I appreciate the head and rear lights, but that's about it. I don't want to buy the set just for the lighs....and I could do without the G1 details.

I like all of Car Crashes except for the hood.

Keep in mind that it's a prototype and probably won't be one of the sets that's released for May.
barrelks
I would consider the Car Crash ones (though my Car Crash is sitting in my POL still), but since I plan on keeping them in combined mode, I am going to wait to see how the stickers look when all applied in combined mode, or if they are even needed at all.
flamepanther
I'd like a mix of the UM sets. Red for the chest, knees, and symbols, blue for everything else.

Funny. I love all of Car Crash's labels except his rear ones covering the red tail-lights.

Think Ill be getting the iGear sets, certainly make a difference to Ratchet
Girl Pants
Definitely going to keep getting the Bruticus sets. Maybe Magnus too, if the price is right.
Artereis
Was really hoping a Breakdown set would be released.

Any plans for Code? I have been really interested in what they would do for him.

Nothing yet from what I've seen. I know they're planning to do sets for the AM Frenzy and Rumble figures but that's about it.

And don't bring up BH Smokescreen over there haha
Uninvited Ghost
I have the iGear Ironhide and Ratchet. Probably will pass on the Ironhide, as I don't display all those big weapons.

Does anyone know what the best way to contact the reprolabels people is? I've Facebook'd and emailed before, but I don't think I've ever got an answer.

About what, specifically? If it's a QC/order issue, email April.

Bummer, I was hoping we'd see a sticker set for Prime: Smokescreen.
Felixman
I'll probably get the Red Ultra Magnus set, and will think about the car-crash one. I don't have any of the other figures, but odds are there'll be a few more when the official announcement comes.

iGear's PP05 Ironhide and Ratchet sets are bought, though I really wish they included translucent tinted blue stickers for their windshields for moar geewun, though I suppose I can just cut to shape some translucent blue binder/folder sheets. Really like the ambulance markings for Ratchet, and the caution stripes for the various weapons.

Breakdown set looks OK but yeah, the hood stickers look like a mess (the sizing looks off as does the pixelated rose pink color they chose).

Disappointed that Smokescreen doesn't have a set yet. Wonder what's keeping them. BH Optimus could use a set too and I really hope they include some black stickers to cover up all the ugly translucent green plastic on him.

Quite possible all the answers would be no, but I was asking:

1) Can I get some kind of discount if I buy hundreds of dollars at once?
2) Can I swap out some likely cheaper silver symbols instead of the funky ones they're currently giving away with every $30 (they don't interest me)
3) Since they aren't making Masterpiece Starscream stickers any more, do they know of any websites that carry their stickers that might have old stock?
CybertronianFan
They all look tempting. I'm definitely in for Fruitcus', UM's, Car Crash's, and more.

Here's hoping they produce a set for the recent 3.0 Generation releases of Springer and Blitzwing.
soymonk
Updated my first post with photos for two more sets: Springer and Bludgeon Kreons.
Cyclonus79
I want to sticker up car crash an some of them look good, but I can't wait to see the final version. Ill probably buy em.
Prime002
Nice sets! Can we get a upgraded Fort Max Set. Something like the RID Fort Max maybe.
DJW107PRIME
Aw that Springer set is choice.

I don't know why the pics for Car Crash were included in this tread. Those pics are not the final versions, far from it. Those were simply printed on white adhesive paper from my desktop printer. The real ones will look and fit 1000 better than that. I printed those and cut them by hand to see how the graphics will work and fit on the toy, some adjustments are required but at this stage that's normal. They are not the final size yet. I also wanted to put up some preview pics on the Reprolabels facebook group to get the word out that we are currently working on a Fansproject Stunticons upgrade set and the first one will be available soon, but it's not part of "this" update. Most likely the next one, maybe in June or July.

I'm pretty sure people know that. I wanted to share the photos of the prototype set that were posted over at the Facebook page. I even stated in the opening post that the set was a prototype.

This is excellent news. I was concerned with Car Crash's labels (especially the ones that covered his rear red lights).

Out of curiosity, with the release of the 2nd (and updated decos) run of Explorer & Munitioner, will you create a new label set for that set as well or keep with the original?

Smokescreen and Shockwave will be my contrubtions to the next release.
JScience
Sorry if this has been answered, but do reprolabels generally hold up through many transformations, or do they essentially make TF's into purely display pieces?
David Hingtgen
In many cases, they are more durable than actual Hasbro-made G1 stickers were. (still not as thin though)
TCracker
The UM red spark is HOT. Gonna get one.
tfwmongrel
Do they ever have sales? I need stickers for a Powermaster Prime, but they want $35 plus shipping for a sheet of stickers. Come on. That's more than the actual toy cost new.
GinoPuppy
already bought two iron hide sets, one ratchet, and photron!! been waiting on the iron hide and ratchet!
LazyAza
I'd just like to say I ordered a set from Reprolabels over 8 weeks ago. 2 weeks ago I had a replacement sent under the impression the first was lost somehow. Still neither has arrived.

This ever happen to anyone else? I've already requested a complete refund but I'm curious to know if I just ended up with the worlds worst luck with them or for whatever reason they just can't ship a tiny package to Australia.
soymonk
Have you tried contacting April?

Oh I've been emailing her several times and she's been incredibly nice trying to help me out but alas for whatever reason the package just doesn't want to get to me. Knowing my past experience with ordering occasionally their is just as much chance my package is sitting at the bottom of a pile in a US warehouse as their is of it being at the bottom of a pile in Aus customs for whatever stupid reason.

The postage was only $3 so its possible that either service end just doesn't give a damn about delivering small packages in any kind of reasonable time. I've been to both my local post offices several times to ask and nothing.

Just in case this is your first time ordering from them, you don't typically receive a "package" per se. It's an envelope with thin cardboard inserts protecting the sticker sheets within.

You may want to check your mailbox instead of your front steps. I had this issue come up with my wife - I was expecting my Reprolabels and she kept telling me no packages had arrived. After a couple of days of no results, I asked to see the mail, and found it threaded between junk mail she had marked for the trash.
RDprime
I cannot express how grateful I am that Reprolabels came out with a set for Igear's van brothers. This has been long over due.

Both are great figures but just needed that little extra detail. I love that they've included essentially 2 sets of labels that are optional in these. Also, hate that, because now I have to make a decision.

Nabbed the Photron set too, primarily just for the con symbol for the lens and the video screen.

Pretty much went nuts this go around and picked up some older sets like Prime Ultra Magnus, PE's Reflector (have a feeling that one is going to be hard to apply, they're so tiny), and some more con, bot, and mini-symbols.

I really love how just adding a few stickers to otherwise great figures that have been sitting on a shelf for a time, can just re-invigorate the initial admiration for a figure.

I do so much ordering through the mail both large and small I almost have a paranoia about checking my mailbox now, so yes if it had come through my regular mail I'd know ^_^

But anyway if anyone cares to know April got me a refund which was awesome but she also sent my order a third time! crazy. I think she wants me to get my order more than I do haha I'll say one thing about Repro they are hardcore when it comes to customer satisfaction. lol
RDprime
Just got the Van Bros sets in yesterday.

I highly recommend these if you have the Igear specialists. They add a considerable amount of needed personality!

nope, and there's a ton of labels there, half the figure is covered in them
Yaosai
Halfway through updating the vans, lots of work on these.

I also got all the Bruticus sets, many of which come with optional yellow spark stickers... I'm thinking of using these on the G2 version I also have. That should work right?

A year or so ago, I had placed an order with Reprolabels, several weeks went by and I didn't receive anything. I contacted April through email and she said she'd send out a replacement order. After about another week, I received what I thought to be my replacement order. Then, about a week later I received another order.

For whatever reason, my initial order just took its sweet time getting to me, then I received the replacement. I contacted April, thanked her for sending the replacement, let her know that the original did actually show up and then I mailed back the second order I received.

The point is that I've had times when ordering from Reprolabels that they can get hung up in customs or where ever and can take some time to get to you. I placed an order back on the 13th and haven't received that yet, but I'm not too worried. It'll get to me.
CybertronianFan
What country are they based out of? I too am experiencing lethargy with their shipping.
