    Hi this my first post!

    I hope this hasn't been covered yet but has any one noticed there is no insignias on PRID deluxes whatsoever.....I have Cliffjumper,Wheeljack and Soundwave and I can't find the insignias anywhere.....
    Is there a reason?,Budget cuts? Or is Hasbro being Lazy?

    :thumb  Thanks For Reading

    Unfortunately, it has been covered. The Vehicon seems to be the only TFP deluxe with an insignia since the First Editions.

    I don't think we got an official explanation, probably never will.
    A shame they don't all have them. It's one of the trademark aspects of Transformers, I'd say second only to actual transformation. Not really one of the things you cut for just any reason, much less something as petty as budget.

    Deluxes have no insignias, while the Voyagers have huge inaccurate ones. QQ

    Well, if you think about it, the characters don't have the insignias, anyway.

    The only characters that do have insignias are Starscream, Dreadwing, Vehicons, and Optimus.

    Soundwave, too.

    EDIT: And Bulkhead. And Arcee (I think). There might be a few more, if not all of them.

    EDIT EDIT: Wait, are you talking about the animation models or the toys?

    In a lot of cases it's actually a good thing. Most of the characters in the show have very teeny tiny insignias, like Arcee's on her wings and Bumblebee's on his stomach. If Hasbro were to paint those on they'd probably be huge and inaccurate. However it is making me hope reprolabels makes a set of small insignias for each of the Prime cast in the next upgrade set.

    At least those three have it in the show, not sure about Arcee, Bulk, or BB.

    We don't know.

    Actually, the PRID wave one voyagers were spot on.

    EDIT:
    I believe Acree has an insignia on her wings. Bulkhead has one on his arm for sure . Don't know for BB.

    Yeah I see what you mean,Wheeljack is to have one right on his chest,and what really annoys me is they just left an empty gap there,hopefully there is reprolabels to come out.

    You get to live due to being new. However, yes. It has been covered... to death.

    In the future, just use the forum search tool, and look up "TfPrime32" and see if it has been covered. As well as "Daitarn Red", that usually will pick out a good bulk of the website, however if you are looking for something specific, then general Keywords are always the safest bet.

    Also, in regards to anything related to Bumblebee. It has been said. Don't worry about it, it has been said. I assure you.

    But, welcome!!!
