    If anyone is in the market for Prometheus let me know. I have to sell off a chunk of my collection including this set (with Reprolabels).

    Crud. I already have the first two, and am not a fan of stickers. [​IMG]

    Stickers only applied to Gumball...if I don't have any luck selling the set, I may end up selling them out one at a time (Red Cross, Hydrant, Streetwise, and Verti-Aid don't have any stickers applied yet). I'll let you know...

    Please & thank you!

    I haven't finished him yet because of lack of funds, but I'm hoping to eBay a bunch of stuff in the next couple weeks.

    Also, if you split it up, I may be interested in the stickers. I was going to get all of them, but so far only have Gumball.

    I normally hate reprolabels, and am definitely skipping all of the robot mode stickers, but I actually prefer busy gris-gris on rescue vehicles and race cars.

    Oh, I would think Home Depot lowes or ace hardware. They are a 3M adhesive I think. Maybe even 3M's website.

    You bet. Also, for the quick fix, you can use electrical tape. It's the same stuff only thinner and a bit more difficult to work with.

    I found electrical tape not very effective at all. So these are the same pads that came with Prometheus?

    Pretty much. It's just a simple rubber pad.
    Instead of putting the tape on the feet, you could always purchase V-Groove Corrugated Runner | Rubber Runner | Runner Matting | Shelf Liner Matting by allMATS.com and line the shelves. This way every figure stays put, no worries of tape residue on the feet, and since a shelf liner doesn't need to be sticky at all, you don't need to worry about damaging your shelves.

    That's really smart. I'm gonna give that tape a try tomorrow and see if it works.
    Thanks man!

    A while back there was discussion of a large shield for this set. While I liked the idea, it never happened so instead of waiting forever for one to emerge I made one. I present Lego shield. It triples as an ugly building and if laid down can become a make shift helipad.

    It does look like that too, here's a shot of the inside. It's not just standing in front of him. It's got an articulated handle arm in back so he can hold it up "with help".

    Hey guys. If you can get the entire team for $250, will you?
