    I'm thinking about placing an order to get the 1 cent brainstorm kit, and I haven't gotten any stickers in years. My collection is mostly classics, masterpiece, and third party stuff. Any suggestions?

    The Titan Metroplex set is a must own if you have it.

    My next order is gonna include the CW Victorion set.

    You didn't mention Transformers: Prime figures, but the 2 best reprolabels sets ever in my opinion are TFP Ratchet and Knockout. Absolutely indispensible.

    I also loved the MP Wheeljack set (which was a penny at the time it came out).
    Generations Springer and Sandstorm are both pretty cool sets. Sandstorm in particular.

    The set for BadCube's Sunsurge is one of the best sets they've ever made. A lot of the times their sets are a bit on the gaudy side, but they hit the perfect balance here. I really liked Wardog, Gundog and Maketoy's Reflector as well. The CW Devastator set was pretty good too.

    I like the 3rd party stuff since it helps with the faction symbols.

    But out of all the sets and I have the only ones that are "MUST HAVE" are for Music Label Soundwave and Sound Blaster and Device Label Blaster.

    Rest are pretty cool to have

    Oooh, a bunch of figures I have have been mentioned--PX Dinobots, Prime Ratchet, CW Sky Lynx, and Sunsurge. I'll have to look into these, thanks!

    If you have her, the Victorion ones look pretty great on her. I'm also a big fan of the CW conversion sets (Exhaust, The Fallen, and Smolder so far).

    If you have CW Defensor Hot Spot and First Aid are worth getting. Prime Knockout's are a must. Also CHUG Wheeljack and Jazz repros are gorgeous. Ditto for TR Blaster and Soundwave.

    Of the ones I bought this year I'm most happy with the labels to turn CW Wheeljack into Exhaust (still needs a shapeways head from Streamshield to pull off the look completely) and the labels for KFC Rhinohorn and Ironpaw (Ramhorn and Steeljaw).

    RTS Jazz, Generations Jetfire(although really you need stickers from both Tfs and Macross sets to make him look properly G1), Hot Rod (depending on which of the 275 versions of him you might have), Prowl

    the ones for the FT dinobots or anything for FT since they have these big glaring spots where faction symbols are supposed to go and the foil mechanical/electronic details add a lot to the look of 84/85 characters, although I don't use of a lot of the ones that are supposed to go over details that are already molded in, and even painted and just exist to make it look more like the G1 toy.

    I really love the CW Optimus Prime set, it really transforms truck mode into something cool.

    I really think their FP Dinobot stickers hit a nice spot. CW Prowl, CW Smokescreen.

    I got the sets for the classic seekers and they are wonderful. Really gives them a better G1 flair.

    I'm not a big fan of stickers in the first place, but even I loved the reprolabels for Generations Springer.

    masterpiece ironhide and rachet need 3d type stickers for their legs to give them definition. so they can fit in line with the previous masterpiece bots.

    someone should send this thread to repolables.
