    I think that was an older render. His face has changed since this.

    I thought so, too.
    Yet I had never seen it that close up.
    There also doesn't appear to be any light source coming from the eyes.
    Didn't the render of Prime on Empire have "Light Up Eye Action"? :)

    So the eyes are huge bubbles that look like turbines, or am I seeing it wrong?

    Mechanical irises I think.

    I'll agree that this is an older render.

    Hmm, his eyes look weird to me. The eyes don't scream 'Optimus Prime', in my opinion. Looks more like Johnny 5.

    If the head wasn't blue and somewhat Prime shaped, you'd never know it was him. The eyes are horrible, where are the solid blue eyes we've come to expect Prime to have. What's with this crap they keep throwing at us????

    They could have given him detailed eyes behind protective blue lenses.

    Come on guys; give the film makers a break!

    It wouldn't be a Michael Bay bot design TM if they hadn't found a way to fuck
    up the face.

    So you're saying the only reason we know it's prime is because... it looks like prime? wow.

    You could say the same thing about classics bumblebee. if his head wasnt yellow and bumblebee shaped, we'd never know it was him.

    In my opinion, it's not fucked up at all. it looks cool, and a lot more believable as an alien than the "metal man" look of the standard transformers. Having a metal guard over the glass eye is a BRILLIANT move, since their eyes would obviously be pretty damn fragile in type of TF design.

    Oh, thats a new and innovative comment for sure. never seen anything like that in these topics. nope.

    Its either an old render, or the light up eye effect hasn't been applied to this pic. The eyes do look a little weird, the perspective might have something to do with that though.

    So if Prime's head wasn't blue and shaped like Prime's head, it wouldn't look like Prime's head?

    That, my friend, is a stroke of sheer brilliance right there.

    I said somewhat like. And what I said only applies to the general head shape and colour. The face, the eyes, even other parts of the head look NOTHING like Prime.

    He's got a mouthplate. He's got vent thingies on his helmet. The only real difference I can see is the eye design. Overall he's pretty G1-licious IMO.
