product option variant images on cart page

on my product details page i have a global option with radio group and the variants have images - so i see them on the product details page perfectly - however on the cart page i just see the radio group but not the images.

anyways to show these - would be ideal

been looking at /views/checkout/products/components/product_options.tpl file - and if I remove the block of code that i thought is responsible for it - it comes out of product details page - so must be something saying not to show on cart.

line 96 default tpl - 106

some debuggin shows me that on cart page $var.image_pair.image_id is empty compared to product page where the values are there.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance guys
