    I think we'll need some third party headsculpt set, when all is said and done:

    Breakdown eyepatch version
    Prime w/o mask
    Wheeljack w/o mask, etc.

    I think voyager Megs could use a better face, too...

    Actually, we're getting a maskless Prime. And there's no reason we can't get those others, too.

    Oh really?

    I've got a Takara FE version (lucky me), so I've ignored a lot of the talk about the RiD figure, and haven't felt the need to pick one up. How was it shown? On the Powerizer figure, or as some kind of sneak preview?

    Back on topic... when do you guys figure we'll see colour examples? Botcon? SDCC?

    It's in the instructions, the mold they use to demonstrate transformation has a maskless head (same way several figures in recent memory have revealed new head molds in the instructions)

    cheaper option for eyepatch breakdown, unless you really want to spend the money on such a minor change. A black sharpie

    also companies cant copy the head to make minor upgrades, thats breaking copyright. It has to be a completely new design or nothing

    I just saw on tv transformers prime RID figure and bulkhead looks nice and bigger than RID optimus so probably breakdown will be a litter bigger and chunkier hopefully

    It's trademark law you're thinking of, and the third parties people are speaking of have a long and profitable history of blatantly ignoring it.

    What needs updated?

    This thread is about our first look at Prime Breakdown...

    No color pics yet. He's not scheduled for a Hasbro assortment yet. Chances are he'll be released in Japan first. We haven't seen his light up weapon yet. We haven't seen his Japanese Arms Micron yet.
