    IMO the stickers are not horrible.

    Edit: Alot of folks want to reprolabel up their figures and think it's the coolest thing ever. Now we have these awesome figures which essentially come with official reprolabels and everyone's a critic.

    Have you tried putting the knee stickers on breakdown? They're a pain in the ass, and the quality is awful. All mine does is stand around on a shelf and they're already peeling.

    The stickers on uneven surfaces and molded details aren't very good, though their placement doesn't help matters. The foot stickers on my Airachnid are already peeling too.

    Anyways, it looks like the molded Silas is just plain gray plastic? I can understand if they didn't paint flesh tones in for his face but I do wish they'd painted it metallic silver like the promo pics indicated it would be. Damn photoshop.

    I have put the decals on Breakdown among others. I don't have the best eyesight in the world (due to a rare eye condition that I have) and I put the knee stickers on without any problems.

    And no they're not "awful quality" IMO...no peeling issues on mine either.

    Not all of us have "the best eyesight in the world due to a rare eye condition" and putting the decals on Breakdown was a stressful pain in the ass. Also having to put stickers on molded detail has nothing to do with eyesight.

    Nothing to do with eyesight? Give me a break.

    Attention to detail to make sure that you're placing the decals on the molded details correctly is essential and also requires your sense of sight.

    Go sell your nonsense to someone else "mate".

    Not sure if you're trying to be a racist dolt with the mate comment or just rude, but whatever. If you think I call ANYONE mate because I'm Australian then you're an idiot, not all of us talk like that and I especially don't

    Breakdown had stickers that COVERED molded details, this is not a "placing correctly" issue, this is a "was not designed for stickers" issue. I don't care how much you boast about your great eyesight and attention to detail, the absolute reality is that Breakdown is difficult because of these tiny stickers covering what should NOT have stickers placed on them.

    Lots of people say "mate".

    He actually said he had pretty bad eyesight, not great eyesight.

    The only difficult sticker for ME to put on Breakdown was on the rear bumper.

    Bottom line is, I think it's ridiculous that these great figures get short changed all of the time because of the decals.

    Also I apologize if you took my "mate" comment the wrong way. I wasn't trying to be racist or rude. It was my ill advised attempt at comedy. Context is difficult to interpret on a message board sometimes.

    Cylas Breakdown looks great (I love the mold, and delicious chrome plus molded in human Silas). Nemesis Prime.... is Nemesis Prime. Seen one, seen them all, really. Dropped my preorder for Nemesis but will pick up Cylas BD (the one ep he was in was awesome, I thought).

    I'm eager to own one if Toy Arena gets it. I love the Breakdown I have right now. This new paint job make him look abolsutley villianous.

    Saved myself a $100 on these horribly inaccurate figures

    I'm kind of disappointed the microns aren't translucent like the promo pics. The solid colors are a bit bland. Oh well. I'll still buy them.
