    I only have Mirage from the line currently and I just noticed his Autobot logo sticker is peeling off -_- I haven't even had it a week and the most important sticker is doing this. I assumed that there is a chance this could be happening with others but since Mirage is all I have I wouldn't know. So go check yours and let me know! Also is there a method to fix this issue that I'm not aware of?

    Same.

    Unfortunately this happens pretty much any time a sticker isn't cut for the oddly contoured surface it's applied too. (Happens with stuff like G.I. Joe vehicles from time to time).

    The only real solutions are cutting a notch in the sticker that allows it to lay flat on the curve, or to place the sticker on the flat part of the chest piece (what I did when it started peeling off).

    LOL I've been saying this for about 2 or 3 months now. I ended up just using a ReproLabel faction symbol for Mirage.

    Try cleaning the part the sticker goes on in soap and warm water. It may be a production residue that's preventing the adhesive from sticking properly.

    Hasbro + stickers = Despair.

    I'd wait until/if Reprolabels do some replacement stickers. They usually have good quality stickers!

    my main prob with the kreo stickers are they are too small! in the pics and when they show you to apply them dont cover the entire area, its like why even bother.

    like the stripes on BB and the detail on SS wings among others, kind of stupid.
