    I don't know if this should just be part of the speculation tread way back when, where the alternate head was seen on the instructions. Anyway I guess it can always be moved.
    Listening to WTF at TFW Vangelus contemplated painting the SG head to see what it looked like but did not want to waste the head. So Instead I tried to cast a head and paint some details to see if we can get a better idea what this head was originally intended for.

    So it just has a base black and I dry brushed silver on it. Not a great cast. Having a hard time keeping the horns and minimizing bubbles. Casting one to make a toxitron which by the way is my guest. It looks like a burnt up melted prime face.

    Anyway it definitely looks like a skull with sockets, shape of the nose and teeth. I wondered at first if it could be skullgrin or bludgeon but the alt mode does not make sense to me. Looking at the helmet it reminded me of a merman or something so I thought of submariner but again alt mode does not make since so finally I just decided its probably toxitron.

    Anyway would love to hear where you guys think this head belongs to

    The face looks much better drybrushed than clear. Still, I have no idea who that's actually supposed to be. I have a hard time believing Hasbro would mass release Toxitron.

    I've narrowed it down to:

    Nova Prime
    Toxitron
    Motermaster
    The Fallen

    But we seriously need to ask Hasbro.

    Are we certain that it's the second head mould of the RTS Prime and NOT a new head made by funpub?

    After looking at the head more, it's definately Movie Megs (the robo-chops, the crest ad the mouth) and even the toy itself has traces of DOTM Megs (the abs and the grill becoming the shoulders).

    Now I want the full on toy Hasbro.

    If this had been a head for a "Generations" Nova Prime, I would have been throwing money at Hasbro and/or FunPub until I got one. Or three.

    Seriously, my first 2 initial thoughts... Movie Megatron and Bludgeon! My third impression was Sauron, The Lord Of The Rings.

    Who/Whatever it's supposed to be, it's pretty cool looking IMHO.

    Man, seeing it like that, really brings the evil out in the face. I agree with the others here - really reminiscent of Movie Megatron.

    maybe they wanted to do an updated scourge homage?

    Personally i think it looks like a hobgoblin...just my 2 cents.

    yes.

    David "Walky" Willis claims that Hasbro intended to use the head for a new take on Nemesis Prime, but I guess they shelved that plan and let FunPub make Scourge with the original head

    That's what I see... well, that, or Frank Langella Skeletor. I know I'm in the vocal minority, but I just really don't see Bayformer Megatron in that.

    Regardless, I think I like this head a lot more when painted. The clear head is still a cool touch, but I like the details being defined a lot more.
