    I recently got a ReproLabels set for my G1 Ramhorn and was disappointed with what I received. I'm not here to slam their product, as I normally love what they put out... but this set in particular leaves a lot to be desired. I'm just posting this here to let others know what they might be getting themselves into.

    looks like a printing error. try emailing them at [email protected] She will fix you up, just tell her the colour is off on the peach and the brown didn't print. They have a 100% satisfaction guarantee. and send out others free of charge when one gets screwed up.

    Congrats man, beautiful sets.

    Got a Grail on the way myself. Most of you guys won't care too much, but after the years of searching it took to find a set of these, I'm beyond excited

    I got one for Ramhorn just like that a few years ago. Never used it.

    That was the first thing I did and she said that's the way the set has always been.

    It's not that big of a deal. My Ramhorn isn't too bad, I was just throwing the set on my order since I was making one anyway. She's already asked what can be done to fix this and I'm simply asking for my $2.00 back that the set cost. I do appreciate that they are willing to work with me on getting this rectified though.

    Sorry if I made it sound by my earlier comments that they weren't trying to help me out.

    They're going to fix the set, so if you guys send in an email to them, they will fix it and send you guys replacement sets

    That's really cool that they are willing to fix it. I've heard lots of good things about their customer service. I just didn't think it was a big enough deal to ask for a refund or anything.

    The Soundwave set I got from them around the same time was good.

    Some upgrades in my collection for this beginning of the year.

    Here's Doubleclouder, in very good conditions but without accessories. I added those of Double Dagger, the Metamorphs KO of Double Dealer. The missile looks pretty good with its golden tip.

    Late 1986 Dutch Transformers catalogue, digitally enhanced. The actual file is much larger (about 16,000 by 6100 pixels), but I can't upload a file that big to the TFW server, and I haven't completely finished the restoration work yet. The spelling mistakes ('triple chancers') were already there. If I ever finish this project I'll see if I can upload it somewhere.

    I can host it for you on my website, www.spiff-o-matic.com if you'd like.

    I also have some old marketing stuff from the mail away Omni Bots. Kinda cool to see this stuff after all these years and the faint memory they've sparked of me seeing this as a child.

    Made a set of some prototype colour Micromasters. Tailspin was in the Zone catalog, and Doubleclouder showed me a pic of the colours for Swindler from an old Toyfair magazine, so I painted up a pair

    Great idea for the kickstand! The battle chargers will stand up much nicer with those. I also love that old school reprolabel upgrade.

    It's been a while since I shot a G1 figure on his own. Well, here are two recent and random ones
