    One thing I'm starting to do is look in the instruction books of the RiD figures, after the alternate Ratchet head. I recently bought Voyager Prime, and noticed something different. There appears to be a maskless version of the head itself. I can see a mouth.

    Does anyone else see it, or am I just seeing things?

    Yeah it seems so. It looks like Optimus without the faceplate on.

    Dammit. There goes news credit...

    I've been waiting for a maskless Optimus, but I was really hoping they'd use the FE mold for it. Oh, well.

    I have to say I don't see the mouth you guys are talking about, though. Close up, zoomed out, squinting... I'm not seeing a mouth.

    I see a Scourge.



    You know....they could base him off of RID(Being a Optimus Prime repaint and all.) but deco could be a Cybertron homage or something.:)

    Glad, I'm not the only one... looks to me like a regular old plate. Blank and no mouth!

    It's probably the picture quality. If you look at the actual instruction sheet, you'll see it better.

    Almost any Optimus Prime toy released now will have mouth and faceplate versions, so I am assuming the same for the Optimus Prime toys released recently in RiD.

    I hope they use solid color plastic on this release's forearms, good to see an alternate head though.

    Is there a link to the alternate Ratchet head photo?

    I really like Prime's face in the cartoon. I'd get a maskless version.

    If it comes in Optimus colours, which it just might, I might get him just so he can Orion Pax on my Decepticon shelf.
