This ingenious kit for Siege Hound comes with a roof piece for his vehicle mode, which also doubles as a riot shield.

What's up with the Sideswipe set turning the Cybertronian car into a Lamborghini?

EDIT: Why is there so much purple on Flywheels? These Siege sets seem really hit or miss

Even the stickers don't do anything to improve the alt on sideswipe with it's out of place looking black panels/parts akin to the Hasbro Combiner wars stunticons. the lambo sticker is just wrong on a cybertonian mode.

I spent about an hour (or more! and havent finished turning POTP Inferno into Pyro yet. I was thinking its probably easier to just buy the old figure than go to that amount of effort and then the finished results start to show -and it seems every miniute of applying them is well spent :)
I'm pretty new to using repro labels but they are definitely worth trying (the official Hasbro CW/TR labels nearly put me off because they were that bad).

Honestly, I don't need most of the stickers that Toyhax usually offers for each figure. It's a great concept to give so many options so you can customize each figure to your liking, but for my tastes, it's too much of a waste. What I need, though, is more like a small sheet of "touch up" stickers for each figure. For Sideswipe, all I really need are white stickers for the knee pads and a white triangle for the pelvis. For Optimus Prime, just a blue rectangle for the pelvis and maybe some yellow triangles for the wrists. For Megatron, a red rectangle for his abdomen. I'd love to see a set of "essential details" for the whole SIEGE line put on one big sheet for one price, very much like what Hasbro tried to do with the Combiner Wars/Titans Return sheets a few years back.

We have another excellent update for you! We're kicking it off with our set for Siege Ultra Magnus, with some much needed window additions!:
https://toyhax.com/for-siege/2686-label ... agnus.html

Tasteful and subtle, our upgrades for Siege Shockwave look like the kind of details the toy was intended to have:
https://toyhax.com/for-siege/2684-label ... kwave.html

Last on the Siege docket, the Wave 1 Battlemasters get some love, too:
https://toyhax.com/for-siege/2689-label ... ave-1.html

Sometimes, people are amazed at how fast we come up with sets after a toy is released. On a unrelated note check out our labels for TR Alpha Trion:
https://toyhax.com/for-titans-ret/2688- ... trion.html

Looking to get your kids involved in the hobby? These labels for Cyberbattalion Optimus and Megatron might do the trick:
https://toyhax.com/for-animated/2691-la ... atron.html

Moving on to third party, we're particularly proud of our set for FT Hydra:
https://toyhax.com/mp-scale/2685-labels ... hydra.html

Not to mention a reimagined G1-styled set for FT Hoodlum:
https://toyhax.com/mp-scale/2687-labels ... odlum.html

It has begun! This is our first set for the Unique Toys Ragnaros team. Here's what we've got for Rage Winterchill:
https://toyhax.com/mp-scale/2690-labels ... chill.html

We'd also like to invite you to follow our new Toyhax.com facebook page, which will be our primary vessel for providing updates from now on!

We're very excited to present this release - we've worked really hard on it!

Starting off with our incredible label and part set for Siege Stascream, you need to see it to believe it:
https://toyhax.com/for-siege/2720-part- ... cream.html

Cameran really outdid himself with these upgrades for Siege Soundwave:
https://toyhax.com/for-siege/2721-label ... dwave.html

We're renewing our push for studio series sets, here are two new ones for the two deluxe bumblebees:
https://toyhax.com/for-movie-toys/2735- ... lebee.html
https://toyhax.com/for-movie-toys/2734- ... lebee.html

Due to popular request, we revised our set for TR Soundwave set to fit the target exclusive:
https://toyhax.com/for-movie-toys/2728- ... dwave.html

GEE-WUN!
https://toyhax.com/for-g1-bots/2727-upg ... ibots.html

More MP cel-shaded sets, this time with bonus labels! Check out what we've got for the + versions of Laserwave and Wheeljack:
https://toyhax.com/for-masterpiece/2722 ... haded.html
https://toyhax.com/for-masterpiece/2723 ... rwave.html

Bothered by the fact that some of your Siege figures look prestine? Scratch up your toys with these (do not actually scratch toys):
https://toyhax.com/symbols-for-tf/2725- ... abels.html

On the third party side, this set for MMC Inventa (coupled with our set for MMC Magna), is one of our favorite sets for third party yet:
https://toyhax.com/mp-scale/2719-mmc-inventa.html

And at last, we've started work on both UT Stellar Warrior and GT Guardian:

I like the extra red stripe stickers for Starscream's wings, but that's about all I would need. The other stickers are just kind of there to justify the price tag, I feel. With Soundwave, all I would want is the red eye stickers, nothing else. It would be nice to have a clean, non-battle damaged tape deck door for his chest, but the stark black and cel shaded window look aren't doing it for me. Perhaps the problem is that Hasbro and Takara have been doing such a good job with the decos for these Siege figures that adding details isn't really needed anymore?

I'm curious, you don't think the extra fin justifies the price? As a sticker sheet alone I wouldn't have been happy with the price (though you did get a load of labels), but the added fin, to me, makes the stickers feel like a bonus. And currently being on sale is the biggest bonus of all.

Wow, I didn't even notice the extra piece for the top before! Honestly, I don't really care for it, now that I've seen it, so really, it's an extra piece of plastic waste to me, just driving up the price of a sticker set of which I'd only use about a quarter of the stickers, at best.

That battle damage set is really tempting. It's really cool!

We're starting this release off strong! Missiles, police details and more for Siege Prowl, as well as an excellent conversion turining him into Autotrooper:
https://toyhax.com/for-siege/2753-label ... prowl.html
https://toyhax.com/for-siege/2752-label ... ooper.html

Continuing with Siege, we've got sets for Ironhide, Chromia and Sixgun:
https://toyhax.com/for-siege/2744-label ... nhide.html
https://toyhax.com/for-siege/2743-label ... romia.html
https://toyhax.com/for-siege/2742-lable ... ixgun.html

Are you a fan of the little things in life? Well, we are. So we made a great little set for the Siege Rescue and Battle Patrols:
https://toyhax.com/for-siege/2739-label ... atrol.html

Sometimes we're good at making things people didn't know they wanted. Like, for instance, a Bulkhead conversion (with a part!) for Siege Hound:
https://toyhax.com/for-siege/2751-label ... khead.html

As promised, we are continuing strong with Studio Series! We paid close attention to detail with this SS Ratchet, and made a cool double set for Crankcase and Crowbar:
https://toyhax.com/for-movie-toys/2741- ... tchet.html
https://toyhax.com/for-movie-toys/2740- ... owbar.html

We've got lots more to offer in the cel-shading department! We've finally covered MP Ironhide and Ratchet, as well as FT Hoodlum, and the Prowl + variant.
https://toyhax.com/for-masterpiece/2746 ... indows.htm
https://toyhax.com/mp-scale/2745-labels ... haded.html
https://toyhax.com/for-masterpiece/2737 ... -plus.html

Last, but definitely not least, this long awaited set for DNA Design's POTP Predaking Upgrade will at last complete your gestalt:

I bet for some people this set will make them want Prowl, a figure people seems 50/50 on. Well I guess it might make me want to get those Prowls I do see invariably cluttering store shelves when Wave 3-4 will hit, given how backward distribution has been and will remain in my area.

That Bulkhead set does look nice but I wish he had a nose to be more of a CHUG-styled Bulkhead.

Even with the new head, I couldn't really accept Siege Hound as a representation of Bulkhead, but those stickers of Sari might just get me to bite anyway. I really miss Animated.

While I like the Animated Bulkhead set, I think Prime Bulkhead would be a better use of this mold. He fits that very well in my opinion.

I think (if there was such a thing!) a Siege-styled Roadbuster would work better as a body-type for Bulkhead, as a Deluxe is just too small for the guy. Anyway, anyone think an Autotrooper set for POTP Jazz would be great and a way to salvage this very disliked figure? And I don't mean the non-troversy of the sticker drama but simply that its generally held to be one of the weaker CW-styled limbs and a poor fit for Jazz.

Edit: I've thought about it and came up with some interesting ideas even if its unlikely Toyhax would do them:
-Siege Mirage into G2 Deluge
-Siege Mirage into G2 Speedstream
-Siege Thundercracker into Ion Storm
-Siege Thundercracker into Bitstream
-Siege Skywarp into Hotlink
-Siege G2 Sideswipe into Rage
-POTP Jazz into Autotroopers
-POTP Inferno into Artfire (to go with Ricochet, of course!)
-CW Onslaught into Clench (to go with their POTP Pyro set!)

Disliked? POTP Jazz? I thought that figure was pretty well liked in the community, and I'm quite fond of him.

As for the Reprolabels suggestions, they sound great! Hopefully some of these get actually made, especially Artfire ;)^

I like him. I use 2010 Jazz as my main CHUG Jazz, but PotP Jazz is still nice and I explicitly got him as "Jazz that can combine". Now if they'd just do deluxe combiner limb versions of Sideswipe and Windcharger to complete the "Masquerade" quintet...

Spoiler contains major pet peeve gripeage:

Grrrr.
"much needed window additions."
:SICK: :BANG_HEAD: :-x :evil: :BOOM:

I think that what's "much needed" is some aversion therapy for the people at Toyhax to get them to knock it off with the out-of-place cartoony cel-shaded windows! I just... why??!
It's one thing to do them for windows that are only molded detail on opaque plastic, but they just look plain daft when they're made to go over actual clear windows. Especially things like movie or or Siege figures, where they clash horribly with the former's realism and the latter's high detail. The only line where I think the cel-shaded window decals would maybe work is Animated. And that's just a maybe.)

Now, if they offered a Magnus sheet that had just the window frames without the stupid butt-ugly cel shaded glazing in the middle, that would be worthwhile


Oh, and they still haven't fixed G1 Sunstreaker and MMPR Tor's sets. Sigh.

On a more positive note, I like that extra fin for SIEGE Starscream and the set for Greatest Hits Soundwave. Also liking the parts and (most of the) labels for Prowl. Still on the fence about him due to already having Universe Prowl. Still, the more GEEWUN legs and the Datsun Fairlady outline are fairly tempting.

It would be nice if they did restorative sets for older CHUG figures (and for the severely-allergic-to-human-skin-oil chrome on Cyber Key symbols). Tampographed and painted decals can still wear off, or end up stripped.. Supplement sets alone were enough when the figures were new, but they aren't new anymore and more than a few are showing it.

finally got my first order tom Toyhax--started small with just some Legends scale sets (Skrapnel, Bombshell and the PotP wave 1 set). I didn't realize they don't send 'instructions' with the stickers--so do you just go back to the site and use sheet page as a guide? It's a rally clunky system with those tiny pictures.

Also, didn't get the free faction sticker sheet they are supposed to send which is a little disappointing.
