Reprolabels sticker upgrades for Animated Wreck-Gar arrived in the same envelope as my RtS Jazz stickers, but my need for theWreck-Gar set wasn't nearly as drastic as it was forJazz's. The set comes with a lot of stuff, mostly alternate heads and faction logos and such, but I really just wanted the damn toes. Wreck-Gar has three red toes on each foot on his character design, and the toy's feet are solid black. It's easy for me to paint black, and I've done that all over Wreck-Gar's body already, where necessary, but painting red is much harder for me to do in a way that doesn't look horribly sloppy.
So, woo, toes!
I did use a few more from the set, but not many. There are also orange stickers for his heels which I applied, and new orange stripe stickers to go over his preexisting painted orange stripes where his forearms meet his elbow. The paint doesn't go quite all the way around, which I guess is the reason for the sticker's existence, but it's not something I absolutely needed. There's also stickers to cover up the orange on the top of the torso, surrounding the head, but you can't see them in any of my photographs because they're really not all that exciting. Oh, and the Autobot symbol. I used that.
Stickers I didn't use include the small black stickers to stick up under Wreck-Gar's forehead, but I'd already painted that, so those weren't necessary. He also comes with a bunch of faces and facial expressions you can paste over his toy's face, but... wow, no. Never. That'd be awful.
I'd completely forgotten that I'd gotten Weird Al's signature on my Wreck-Gar. That was a fun rediscovery. Tweet
