    Agreed, if everything is applied. For me, I could do without the ones below his knee in Bot mode. Everything above that really makes Magnus more appealing and less bland.

    I love Magnus the way he is, cartoon accurate for better or worse, but if I did get this set (which I won't) I'd use the silver thigh stickers and the white ones for his forearms. I'm betting this sticker set would look a lot more appropriate on a toy/comic book colored Magnus, though (red thighs, white hips, light blue).

    I really only want the eye stickers for Daniel and Spike, even though they look goofy, better than nothing.

    Totally agreed Dean. Usually Reprolabel does amazing job with their stickers, but for their sticker sheet on MP22, they really over kill it. That silver sticker connecting the 2 white circles above the waist made the figure looks even more out of the place.

    I'm also happy with the cartoon MP22 rendition, so no sticker sheet for me. But if I have to choose between Reprolabel and Ocean sticker sheet, I'll take the Ocean version. Looks more ease to the eyes:

    Neither work for me. Superfluous. The ocean set looks better on the shins but IMHO for the stickers to work he'd need a completely new, toy accurate, pair.

    Ocean stickers look way better, but I'm not a fan of the shins. Dunno if that makes them worth ordering.


    Now if only someone could make me a spare arm to fix my UM's.

    I like Reprolabels' much more. Sure I wouldn't use all of them, maybe half. But that half is better than Ocean's----biggest difference is the shin stickers. Reprolabels did a good job "fitting" the G1 toy sticker design to the MP toy's molded shapes. Ocean---they put a single big triangle across 2 squares and a gap, and that looks awful.

    Reprolabels' taillights also actually look like taillights. I've never seen any taillight at all like what Ocean did.

    And the diamond-plate tread---that's just awesome.

    Strangely, I'm liking this, I think in robot mode it's a bit overkill so I won't be applying all of them but I've been to the site and seen the stickers for the alt-mode and they look good, count me in.

    agreed.

    that entire set is overkill. masterpiece magnus the way he is is perfect. he never had any of these superfluous details on the show.. so i'm not sure why someone would want to sticker up an expensive figure like this just to make it less accurate.

    people can do what they want with their figures.. but for me, these stickers ruin the clean accurate look of the figure that takara has clearly tried hard to obtain.

    covering up the red bumper is a sin! lol.

    Yeah, what's up with that silver belly?! Just a bad idea. The only thing that they addressed that really needed "fixing" in my mind are the sides of the exo-suit helmet. They should've been painted white, but of course they weren't... why the hell are the stickers silver?! Good idea - botched execution.

    I got some OD stickers and can't figure out where some of them go. I searched but OD doesn't have a site or instruction anywhere and squinting at the BBTS site for clues gets annoying.

    I don't mind some of the little silver accents here and there, but I still won't be getting any for my Magnus.

    Yeah, saw the reprolabels last week....big ass easy pass for me. I love my Magnus just as he is.

    Only thing I'd like is a couple plate stickers and maybe a couple tail light stickers just for the two lights on his feet. Guess I can make those when I get ink for my printer.

    But I've not been impressed with much from Reprolabels, my Wheeljack stickers are blurry and very bumpy. Not smooth like what we used to get from G1, not what I expected with all the hype of their product.

    No stickers for Magnus for me from either company. I'll keep my cartoon blandness over gaudy overkill any day.

    The G1 toy wasn't even ever that busy or covered in stickers.
