    Not looking for this to turn into a spam fest, not being sarcastic about my question either, but... What is up with Bumblebee's face? It has the weirdest lighting like it AMPLIFIES the light pointed at it, it's crazy shiny, like chrome-y, and in the scene where he rebooted in Sick Mind, it looked like his face lit up. Other times it seems just as reflective as any other Transformer's face. It seems to be as erratic as his blue pupils and Arcee's pink armor changing.

    I'm totally serious here, I just would like a straight answer/ or to hear anyone else's opinion on the subject. Here are some pics:

    And here's a quick pair of shots illustrating his face lighting up in Sick Mind:

    1. What do you mean by the lighting?

    2. It could be shiny to indicate his youth. It hasn't had as much time to get messed up as the others

    The only problem with it is the random design changes with his eyes. Otherwise looks fine to me. o.o

    I hope they stick with the eyes being filled in with blue though. The black filled ones look creepy.

    Is it weird that I never noticed the eyes?

    By the lighting I meant the way his face reflects light, like it amplifies light. I should've been more specific.

    You mean it seems to shine or something? Maybe it's just meant to be that reflective. Beyond that I have nothing.

    Nah, I don't think so. Lately it seems that Bulkheads face is also shiny/reflective as hell. Must be a behind-the-scenes choice by the animators. Why? No idea.

    What annoys me more is they can't seem to make up their mind if his eyes should just be circles, or filled up circles (last one looks much better). Oh, and the way his eyeholes look like they were sawn out with a fretsaw.

    He's a kid and has acne. That's why his face shines; it's all the oil.

    Bumblebee's head looks dumb. End of story.
