    "Toyhax's January update is here at last!

    This ingenious kit for Siege Hound comes with a roof piece for his vehicle mode, which also doubles as a riot shield.
    Not to mention a fantastic sticker set, as always! Take a look!

    Okay I only really care about the Skids set. But what does the S.M.P. label mean? They should get back on track with more XTB stuff. Although I’m guessing the stunticon set will be for the very end. Which is fair. But it’d be nice to have a set for coprimizzo and toro.

    i like hound's riot shield but the other stickers i feel look.....busy. like it's a little too much. same with sideswipe. seems like there's a bunch of unnecessary bits here and there on hi. the jetpack sticker is really the only thing i like about it.

    cog however look pretty good...breaks up the solid colors in a nice way

    I don't get why they haven't done a simple POLICE sticker for mp+ Prowl, seems like easy money to me, I'd buy it.

    Cog looks great! It's really cool that the folks at Toyhax are giving us more options.

    I mean, it's a square of plastic that sits on the roof and has nowhere to go in robot mode. I'd hardly call it "ingenious." (it doesn't even look like a riot shield)

    I dunno, as great as RL are, I think the age of sticker-upgrades feels... bygone. Like, they're still stickers, and especially colour-correcting ones will never completely do the job. Plus in an effort to make the sheets worthwhile, the amount of tiny, busy, meaningless detail stickers just clutters up the figures.

    The Hound roof is a neat idea, and while I don't personally feel Hound's jeep needs it, I think it's interesting that Toyhax is potentially entering Nonnef's territory. I'll be very curious to see if they produce any further add-on pieces.

    The subtle jetpack sticker for Side Swipe is really clever, too!

    Toyhax, I love ya, but can we please get more Studio Series sets? I know you really don't like making them, or something, but there's already a wealth of figures that could use your touch.

    I really appreciate that for Roadhandler on the Race Car Patrol set it had a before picture for a direct comparison to see exactly what the stickers do for it. I always struggle deciding whether it is worth buying them since I'm not sure how much difference it really makes. I hope they do that more often in the future.

    I still hate the legs on the MP Datsun molds, but those stickers definitely help them a lot.

    No Headlight stickers for Skids to cover up the ugly line down the center?

    I was waiting eagerly for that Skids/Savant Set, in hope of making a very good figure awesome.
    You know, fix they headlights. Bring a vertical bar into the side windows. These things.

    Now it turns out they did a lot of weird stuff for covering the thighs in strange patterns, and funky random stickers for the trunk instead. And a "hood bump" that works from one viewing angle (can't use 2d stickers to fake 3d pieces).

    I am happy for everybody who likes the set, but me personally, I feel let down a bit.

    Toyhax please finish doing the Fanstoys Dinobots.

    PE Cesium has replaced Scoria, so we really need a set for him.

    I need to grab Ditka, Richthofen, Terminus Giganticus and Savant.

    Other pieces in my collection that could use some label sets are: VooDoo Animus, VooDoo Salas, Maketoys Wrestle and, eventually, ZETA's Aerialbots and XTB's Stunticons

    Definitely buying all these. Though I'm still mulling over if I want to use the roof sticker for Sideswipe or not, I kind of like the Tron-like aspect of the default windows. If the labels were more like cyberpunk light fixtures, that would be a different story. Currently awaiting my shipped order for Siege Optimus and Megatron labels.
