Ok I wouldn't call this art, but while doing some modifying to the head of my MP Ultramagnus, I wanted to put some solid eyes on his face. And to do that, I had to use an MP Prime head. Now while pulling apart Primes head. I realized that the mouth plate had come loose, falling down to revile an evil looking mouth. I took a shot of this find, though its a little blurry you can still make the outline out.


While I used the head from My MP 04, he is displayed in truck mode, so he doesn't need a head. It ended up being unusable for MP 04 again, since I used the ball joint for Magnus's head. I did re-use it for an amusing idea I had for a Robot Hero Prime..


And here is the Head of Magnus, he is now able to see..

As you can see, He has the nice shiny blue eyes from primes head.

:confused:Do they use the same basic head mold for most of the MP line and just do things like you discovered, cover it up with aface plate:confused:.

Well for Mp01,2 and 4, as they are all prime molds, I would say yes, they are all the exact same head molds..

But MP03 & 6 the heads of them molds could fit in Primes head twice if not more. and the Megs mold has a different face/helmet altogether.

Yes, Prime has a mouth underneath that faceplate - it's been revealed on a few occasions throughout G1...

...and G2...


And underneath that mouth is a whole buncha ugly tentacles - KISS Players eat your heart out!


And underneath those hentacles... umm...

In the storybook "The Great Car Rally" Prime just had a human looking mouth

But the scariest of all is what's underneath Prime's faceplate in the G1 cartoon...

...proceed at your own risk...

(it was animation error :p)

Yep, in the episode The Search for Alpha Trion if I'm not mistaken.
