    Seeing as they might be brothers, maybe they went out on the piss one night and woke up with tatts.

    We've all been there... ;)

    I dunno...now that I look at it close-up, they look pretty tattoo-ey to me. Looks like Japanese?

    The one under Megatron's eye is from Beast Wars, it was used on the flying Island in the episodes, 'The Trigger 1 + 2', they signified a trap.

    Primes I cant quite make out.

    I'd been wondering about this forever and I'm glad someone brought this up so that I know I'm not the only one seeing things. I was originally going to put up a post about it and actually circle the marks so that people could see them better but I don't know how to do that here.

    The marks look like kanji to me. Though I have no idea what they mean. Perhaps it's just a little thing for us fans to look for? Could it be like, initials or the name of the people who made TFs? (Not Hasbro and Takara, but the people who actually though up the idea.)

    There was already a thread for this. Someone said the mark under Megs eye means blood in Jap.
