    One of my favorite figures is DX9 Carry/Not Rodimus, and he is, IMHO, an amazing figure. But my ire isn't with the figure, but with Reprolables and their willingness to create great sticker sets for so many figures. But not a set for carry which is screaming for a set. I have no doubt that they could do a wonderful set for him, but they haven't. It's really pissing me off that he has been so blatantly over looked. Does anyone else feel the same or am I alone in my frustration?!?

    The figure looks great as-is, imo. What parts were you hoping for stickers for?

    The lack of Star Seeker Reprolabels astounds and arouses my ire.

    They have faction stickers for gobots, blendtrons, edc, even shit as obscure as the Brazilian Optimus and Malignus.

    Where are my space pirate stickers.

    Yes, I have Armada Tidal Wave, HFTD Axor and a KO Seaspray molded in day-go green plastic as members of the Star Seekers who could use some faction symbols.

    I wouldn't mind a sheet of just the Estrela Brazilian Malignus and Optimus faction symbols, right now I think they only include one with one of their Igear Hench reprolabel sets. They'd be great for customs.

    Reprolabels could make more Diaclone stickers to turn Red Alert into Clampdown or wing labels for the Seekers.

    Also. I think it'd be more constructive to bring this stuff directly to Rebecca @ toyhax on Facebook

    A suggestions page or a monthly poll for new set ideas is something I'm surprised they've never thought of doing.

    I would stick to the eness stickers for the Studio Ox look. Chances are that even if toyhax does a set, it will be made entirely of that super-reflective material that clashes with instead of complementing the figure.

    Yeah, the best thing to do would be to contact Toyhax and see if there's any Carry coming down the pipeline. As a fellow Canadian, we'll be most likely to say 'we're sorry' first, and we'll cheerfully help out people the best we can (at least in Vancouver we do).

    my disappointment with that figure is limited mainly to the fact that its hands were the wrong color and it didn't include wrist extenders out of the box. I've considered buying the shattered glass recolor version just to swap their hands

    I saw the Eness labels the other day while perusing DX9 sales. Are they actually stickers or waterslide decals?

    Haha, yeah any time you to respond "no" to a customer inquiry, it begins with "Sorry, unfortunately..."

    They are dry rub and look really really good if you have the patience.

    And here's a tip, don't start your message to the manufacturer with "I am sooo disappointed".
