I consider myself a purist when it comes to collecting and I sincerely hope we can agree to disagree on some of this stuff.
That's why is said that it isn't really true. Although I see what you're getting at, the vintage car community is quite different from the transformers community. Car collectors prefer original. In my experience this does not apply to TF's. Reprolabels are not frowned upon at all in this community, with very few exceptions. Not arguing your preference which I very much appreciate, just saying your comparing apples to oranges.
Makes sense. I guess i'm in the minority on that.
