    That Breakaway set is pretty disappointing.

    Yeah I was really looking forward to what they would do for him and it's left me disappointed too. Too much attention to vehicle mode and not enough to robot. He could of used some more labels to spruce up his arms and maybe some blue eyes.

    I like the set for Backdraft, will probably get that, but am disappointed that there's nothing for ToyWorld's Constructors, or TFC's Seacons.
    C'mon ReproHax, help me out!

    Okay, I got to admit, that Hot Rod set looks awesome, and actually would make the new TR Hot Rod look good on a shelf next to Masterpiece Hot Rod + ToyHax set.

    Was hoping for a Carnifex set this time around. Glad to make my Sentinel Prime look a little more intentional and a little less like a knock off/deer hunter

    Wow, not even a masterpiece sticker sheet? Hmmm.....I think they\'re all releasing them at the same time probably.

    I think maybe the Allen set is a little overpriced for my preference. Only good release I see for me is Sworder. Really let down there's no new pyrocon this month

    I'm disappoined too. Not only they gave too much attention to vehicle mode, but they also focused mostly on the robots legs, which were fine as they were, and only made two generic G1 looking stickers for the arms. And the chest could have used some more attention, instead they made two stickers for the inner chest.

    I'd be really interested to see what they could do to add a little more mechanical detailing to them/similar decals to the originals.

    Some blue labels for the arms would of really helped break them up and homage g1 and IDW. I really thought this set would of been an instant buy. I hope they do another Hasbro Asia exclusive set for wave 3.

    The Brainstorm set looks ok. It's a "might as well get it because it's one cent" purchase. The Hot Rod and Sentinel Prime sets look good, Getaway's just... come on. There's so much more that could've been done. I was seriously expecting a Battle Core Optimus Prime situation here where Reprolabels would go crazy and make like 4 different sets to turn him into other characters.

    Jeez, more and more missed opportunities IMHO.

    I know you don't have to apply every single one, but there is WAY too much foil in the last few months.

    The 'more is more' approach to G1 is slowly taking over with each new batch.

    I used to place an order pretty much every month, have actually stopped this (given the state of the euro vs dollar, have had to make some hard choices about what to buy, moreso than usual)

    Between the price increases, and the amount of labels not getting used, it's starting to not be worth it.

    Letting a few months pass by, and then pick and choose, rather than rabidly buying a set for everything I own....

    Glad to see this too. I tried to add some paint to my Sentinel but mucked it up in some spots. I'd like to try again and add a select few of these labels as well. I must say I am NOT a fan of the honeycombed "energon glow" stickers that try to emulate the design in the comics.
