Movie-verse Optimus Prime knows to go for the head, as seen in many occasions where the fight ends in decapitation or faces getting ripped off or heads exploding. And now, you can recreate one of his first onscreen decapitations with a pretty cool feature on Transformers Studio Series voyager Bonecrusher. Bonecrusher's face is purposefully removable. It lifts right off the balljoint connector. The eyes are still connected to the balljoint connector, so be sure to take some care when removing it so that you don't damage the eye pieces. Thanks to Seibertronians Carnivius Prime and Evasionmodebumblebee, we were made aware of this and got an image to show you since even though the toy has been out for a while, many were not aware of this feature.

Ah cool but no need to credit me. I just got the info off TFWiki but couldn't find images of it and I still don't yet own the figure myself. Thanks to EMB for the quick figure pic though so I could see what it's like. And yeah it's a lil extra feature. :)

Yeah I did mention that in the first post about it. :P It's just still not common knowledge apparently that the figure does that and I had not seen it before and talking to a lot of the people I follow on twitter and instagram and such they weren't aware either even many of them owning the figure. So it's nice to know. :P

In addition to birthday money I got, I also won £30 on lottery last night. Maybe I should use some and finally get Boney. :michaelbay:

I still don’t think this is an actual feature. It’s more like “this is how the head is assembled isn’t it kinda like how he dies in the movies?” Especially since if you’re not careful you can break the eyes taking it off. Once I got bonecrusher I did this and it felt more like I was just disassembling my toy. Especially considering there’s no detail like say that Fallen toy where there’s bits and a skull under behind the face

But why have the head assembled that way? Seems like a bit more trouble then needed.

Yeah with the eyes like that it's similar to how they assemble heads that have light piping in but this doesn't, and those tend to have a screw go through so you can't easily just take it off without unscrewing. Again this doesn't. So to me this seems designed to be removable as a nice lil easter egg to his death.

Unfortunately I won't be getting DOTM Prime in time, so I'll be working on painting/modding it around Christmas later this year.

However, I did have something else arrrive!

I'm working on adding some paint, but I'm having a blast with the new parts!

I mainly got the kit for the rifles, but the other parts are also very welcome. The only issue I'm having with it is that the back of the truck doesn't want to tab together anymore, so I'll have to look more into that.

That sequence of photos made me smile. Particularly the 'thud' one. :D
Had that set for a while now. Before most people actually. Cos an eBay listing Buy It Now appeared with it already attached to an Ironhide so I leapt on it and it turned out to be the very exact one I had actually watched a review of just a few days before. It was youtuber Benscollectables' Ironhide. It was still complete with box and all that (with the old parts now in the DNA box). I swapped which parts I needed with my own Ironhide that I had painted some parts on then sold the spare un-DNA'd Ironhide on eBay and kept my lovely improved one. The front bumper really makes a world of difference to his shape and more dynamic posing. The guns and improved articulation in feet are all great but it was the bumper that I so very much wanted. :)

But in the movie, he takes his whole head off, not just part of the face.

kinda wished i'd never said antyhing now. Didn't expect it to go on this much. Just wanted a pic of what TFwiki had written. :P

Anyways I'm off for an early night cos I'm getting up early tomorrow on my birthday to go wait outside at 5:30am for my lift to airport to fly up to the Edinburgh Fringe for a day and night to go spend the day with my am dram group who are up there performing a couple shows. Hm, there's a Forbidden Planet in Edinburgh and it's right close to the castle I'll be going to on the Tuesday morning. Hopefully they'll have some Transformers I be looking for. :D

Anyways take care, folks. And enjoy your Transformers. til all are one and such. :D

Went ahead this morning and added a reference link to the original source for that tidbit on Bonecrusher's Wiki page.

Didn't know someone had actually added it to the page. Had I known, I would have added the source link a long time ago. :oops:

Prime stabs him under his chin straight thru/upwards so it's a face removal rather than a straight up decapitation from the looks of it.

Having watched the film several times and the clip just now I can say it was most if not all of the head, most apparent when Bonecrusher's head falls down it looks mostly whole and spherical and it rolls.

I don't think his head would be rolling if it was a face decapitation.

Scored Hightower today and what an awesome ugly little bot. I love this thing it reminds me of Zod from GoBots for some reason. He’s like a twisted little scorpion. And Devastator is going to be enormous. Wow.

Unless there’s a scene I’m forgetting this is probably a sign to take it easy on SS faces...how does this just happen when we’re talking about faces???

Yeah, I don't really buy it. By this logic, hundreds of figures have undocumented features for removable arms, legs, heads, wings etc.
