Default [Q] Handcent and MMS with multiple contacts avatar

When sending a message to multiple contacts, I understand that a MMS message is sent. My question involves the contact avatar. When sending to a single person my contacts avatar image shows, when sending to more than one person it is a blank avatar indicating more than one person.

Hangouts and HelloSMS both will stack the contact avatars on top of each other. Is there way to get Handcent to do that? Its the one thing I cannot get to work.

I have attached a screenshot of Handcent and HelloSMS that shows the difference circled in red.
