    OK so now i've realised I can't recall Beast Hunter Optimus having any Autobot insignias in the cartoon and there aren't any on the voyager figure. Again folks am I blind?

    What I'm curious to is why a good number of the RiD figures are missing insignias.

    Its a deal between hasbro and reprolabels, less symbols more people buying repro. j/k this is just messin' around.

    "Laziness" is a pretty lazy response to these things.

    Likely it's because the symbols are so small on the designs and in usually weird places (faction symbols are tampographed, which is different than just painting and isn't feasible just anywhere) like high-contact areas or not very visible. Maybe they just decided to make everyone uniform, with the odd exceptions?

    It could also be, since just about every character on the show has tiny, barely noticable silver faction symbols they're considered unimportant at this point. I do miss TFA's prominent badge-style symbols, though they futzed those over on the toys.

    Some characters don't need insignia. they're iconic.

    What if they're playing a Shattered Glass type game?

    Shattered Glass is a mirror universe there the Decepticons are the heroes and the Autobots are evil.
