Product Images replaced by Product Option Combinations Images - fix?

I wish to display both the “base” product image and the “product option combination” images on the Item view. By default, the “base” image gets replaced via javascript during page-load by the “combination” image. Has anyone created a mod that allows the “base” image to display above the “combination” images, so that it is always visible to the customer?



I’m looking for this functionality as well. Since most all our images will be added for product options (clothing colors and styles) it would be awesome if clicking on the option images would change the main image like the additional product images does.

Has anybody else done this or know how it could be done?
