    Welcome aboard!
    I don't think it's sombre; I like the lips.
    I highly doubt it'll stop anyone going on and on about them though. Still, hope springs eternal, I suppose...

    :cry  Well, Michael Bay just let my hopes down for our iconic hero. I just hope the action makes up for Prime's ugly lips.

    Man, it just isn't Prime without the faceplate.

    Can you tell how Cullen is more up for the game than the movie?

    The lips only bother me because none of the others seem to have them. I'll get over it. Bring on the movie!!

    Maybe I'm looking at the wrong internet but Prime still has a faceplate. In fact, he has a faceplate on the official movie poster. The only thing Michael Bay did was choose to show his underneath mouth more often when talking. Optimus Prime isn't "ZOMG TEH RUINED" or anything. :wink: 

    Part of me things that its kind of interesting to find out whats "under the mask," and a larger part of me things that this is so very insignificant anyways.

    The battlemode faceplate was one of the coolest things about Optimus Primal.

    And Optimus Primal is cooler than Optimus Prime.

    This can only HELP.

    As long as he uses the faceplate in battle (and talks with it during battle) then I'm fine. I DO NOT want to see the mouth throughout the ENTIRE film. Both options should be given equal screen time in the film.

    The coolest thing to see would be Megatron ripping half of it off Prime's face (ala battle damage) during their final battle.

    Oh well...I guess we didn't complain enough. *lol*
    Or the powers that be just didn't want to pay more $$$ for the animators at ILM to change it.
    Eh' it doesn't bother me that much. What can you do?

    The only ting that upsets me is how you can tell Peter Cullen favors the Game more than the Movie. He's glad to be working with Frank again. And even on the Tformers.com interview, he openly admitted that Frank should have really got the part of Megatron.
    If the film is a success, then he's on for three films. I just hope he's okay with the changes. It'd would be nice though to see him at least have some input with the film and try to get some veteran VA's to voice future characters. To me, he seems like the only guy who wants to keep it close enough to the original source material.
    Oh well Pete...what can you do?

    At least he's happy (and thankful of us for getting him) to be voicing Prime again after so many years.

    Well from my point of view. What's the point of a 'battle mask'? What's the point of a 'battle mode' head? Keep the mask on, or off. The ability to switch between 'battle mode' and 'standard mode' is irrelevant. What is the function of it? A thin peice of metal is really going to protect Primes face? What is he, vane? His face is so pretty he needs to keep it safe? He'd be better off not having a mouth. Less moving parts to break.
    Plus...Primes face is a noticable icon. Giving him a mouth takes away from part of that icon.
