    These guys have no faction symbols. Anyone know why this is? Did I miss something?

    Maybe Hasbro acquired Reprolabels?

    I don't get it either. Usually, Hasbro LOVES to put faction symbols on bots.

    The Cyberverse figures have them, which leads me to believe it was just a horrendous oversight on Hasbro's part.

    In the show the faction symbols are not obvious most of the time. Perhaps they were trying to emulate this?

    Maybe... but Wheeljack has one smack dab in the middle of his chest. That sort of thing is hard to miss.

    just to clarify, the size class is not revealers, they are still deluxes, look on the box, still says deluxes

    same with powerizers, they still say voyager on the box.

    just wanted to clarify that, and yeah, it is odd that they are missing faction logos

    yeah, not wanting to derail this thread from its intentional purpose but there is a very big misconception created by shelf tags. it was clarified at toyfair that the name changes were errors, as they were the name of the gimmicks in the toy, not the actual size class. So its gonna take a bit to correct that misconception

    The logos are actually cookie cutters.
    They took 'em off to make cookies.

    I really don't care because I really don't want Bot/Con logos ruining the whole "in disguise" aspect.

    and to be honest, I fuckn hate those stupid gimmick names (cyberversus, powerrringer, whatever the heck it is), makes things more confusing..

    All I know is.. Legend, Scout, Deluxe, Voyager, Leader.... PERIOD!

    nope, but for show accuracy, add one on his left forearm (white outline logo looks good, smallest size)
