I Find Your Lack Of Paint Disturbing.

from their website: Sideshow and PCS Collectibles are proud to present the Optimus Prime “Classic” Scale Statue which features meticulously detailed paint applications to recreate the look of the animated series as it’s never been done before.

Yup, they downright lied to us unfortunately. Because they knew it’ll work.

No one, here at least even mentioned the use of decals before me. I wouldn’t be surprised if a lot of ‘collectors’ didn’t even notice or care about it.

And I’m pretty sure if it ever does peel, it’ll flake off as soon as you touch it. Pretty much what happened when I touched the excess around the windshield part of the figure.

Oof, that does sound like a potential problem. I'll probably keep my preorder for Prime, since he's so iconic. But think hard if I want to stay in for the dio. And while the IS Sentinel looks really nice, I would be pissed if we got a huge Devy covered in decals for that kind of scratch.

Not aware if IS ever doing the sticker route...in fact I think the only statues that have done that are the cartoon shading ones for the transformers from PCS. I am expecting the devy statue to do that though, looks really cool but seriously question longevity and that is a serious concern for me. Think I am going to switch to LOC jets instead due to this (already ordered starscream from pcs though). As for devy will all depend on how much IA charges....and if I have to leave my car outside to make room for him. I hope he isn't as huge as that picture Craig showed....that's just too big and will also make it too expensive thus sending me back to pcs sticker devy. I will admit they do look pretty good (my prime does) but stickers really are going to make me walk away unfortunately.

I hate the stickers, just like cloth on statues, makes them seem cheap and toy like to me.

I have had my Palisades Devastator statue for about 12 years and it has some decals on Scavenger and they are like new. If they do peel I am not shabby with an Airbrush

Maybe the question should be how the decals are applied. We keep calling them stickers but professional decals are often applied using techniques that make them practically lifetime and that tend to bond to the surface. Auto manufacturers and detailers come to mind. Has anyone asked PCS what process they're using on these?

Not all of us were calling them stickers, only the 3 posts just prior to yours. I believe I and others have been calling them decals since I first mentioned them on the previous page, but that’s more because they were closer to the type of decals I’ve used on some models I’ve put together.

And as I’ve already mentioned, but because of how they were applied I can already see damage on the decals on my Optimus and have experienced some flaking at the edges of the windscreen.

As I also said, I have no problem with decals. Many of my favourite statues have decals to varying degrees. Though I’ve never had a statue where nearly every visible part of the statue is in fact a decal. But the problem here is in how ‘well’ they were applied on to the piece I received and how easy it was to damage it just by touching any area where the decal incorrectly overlapped with the underlining panel lines (empty space under the decal) or any of the excess decal around the windscreen.

And I’ve never understood the hate some have for eye decals. I actually prefer them. Heck there have been situations where people have loved the eyes until I told them they were in fact decals, and suddenly they do a 180.
