    Not sure if this goes here or in 3P forum. Mods, feel free to move the thread as you deem appropriate.

    I'm just wondering what Reprolabels or sticker upgrades do you consider essential to completing the look of specific figures in your collection? For some, you can skip buying stickers by getting more-accurate paint apps on another release of the same mold (e.g., Henkei Hound, United Jazz, United Tracks, etc), and for others, I'm content just slapping on a faction sticker. Any essential ones for you?

    For me:

    - TF: PRID Ratchet
    - TF: PRID Knockout
    - maybe Music Label Soundwave

    None if humanly possible. Don't like, don't want stickers. Vastly prefer paint. If it's a third party thing like repros, NOPE NOPE NOPE ABANDON ALL AUTOBOTS.

    Have to agree with these. Along with movie Crankcase and both Prime Rumble and Frenzy. Totally MADE those guys POP. Oh and Prime Prowl :D 

    But I'm a huge fan of the sticker idea and after trying my hand making my own custom ones, I know it is not easy and glady support them.

    But to each their own in the end really.

    I love any sticker upgrades if it helps the figure look better. also applying stickers makes me feel like I had a part in making the figure what it is. I like getting involved with figures.

    I've always disliked stickers, personally, so I try my best to stay away from them whenever possible.

    DotM Deluxe Leadfoot, without a doubt. Since the Target version was canceled here in the states, we're left with the Takara release, which is barren as fuck (for understandable reasons). Picked up the Reprolabels set for it, and now it looks great.

    PRiD Ratchet
    Music Label Soundwave
    DOTM Roadbuster

    FE Cliffjumper's set is highly recommended
    I also suggest the upgrade set for RTS Wreck-Gar

    Generations Metroplex. It added all the missing chrome on his legs and eliminated much of the ugly blank white spaces.

    Nucleon Quest Convoy was missing Scourge/Nemesis Prime decals. Reprolabels helped to rectify that problem.

    G1 Metroplex. Aside from that, eh. Nothing is really 'essential'.

    I think the Reprolabels sets for all the Wreckers are amazing, but Leadfoot is definitely the most needed.
