    just a little point but...

    has anyone noticed that skorponok (obviously), brawl and barricade all have 4 eyes each??

    to illustrate the point i have, in time-honoured decepticon tradition, made their eyes glow red:

    EDIT: so does frenzy, actually no, he has 4 main eyes and another 4 smaller ones, so 8 eyes in total -

    4-eyes :lol  . Bay's Decepticons wear glasses....

    But seriously, I think each of them have 1 set of eyes, but the have something like a small bar crossing just in front of the eyes so it looks like 4 eyes. Except for skorponok that suppose to be a scorpion, so he MUST have 4 eyes....

    Scorpinox's eyes look kinda creepy, sorta like a viper

    Does Megatron and Starscream have four eyes? Or are they supposed to be like the more hummanoid of the Decepticons?

    Barricade definatly has four eyes. Brawl appears to have four, and Scorponok.

    Yea I dont mind it at all. I say this also because the bad guys have to look like "bad guys" they dont have bright coloured paint and pretty faces...That being said, I think I remember from the trailer barricades eyes were red when he busted the car between Shia

    i like how it adds another "alien" aspect, reminding us that they are, in fact, from another planet.

    I seem to recall someone saying that the designs look 'insect like', so lots of eyes fit into this nicely. And i'm with Poho on the alien thingy.

    Did you need anymore?

    I like the less human aspects of the Decepticon faces. They are the most vicious, evil looking Decepticons to date, which can't be a bad thing in my eyes.:thumb

    *sigh* Ever see a thread title, and just know what one of the replies will be? Oh well.
    As for the 4 eyes thing: I don't mind it. It's possible the second set allow them to see in different spectrums. Actually.. that'd be kind of cool.

    Quite, I also think they might be used for verious reason, maybe targeting the enemy, or even so infared or so on. I'm wondering if they eyes turn red when they are in combat mode.

    It seems as though these renders have no glowing eyes, but in the trailer almost every scene with a decepticon has glowing eyes, but are doing somthing combative, For instance, BoneCrushers eyes were glowing when we focused on his face: smashing through the buss.

    And goes the same for Barricade when he was pinning Shia between the car.
    And especially when BlackOut turns around before the multi scene Climax.

    All of these to me seem like signs that they might have sort of a personalitie to tell they are real mad. So lets say Barricade was walking and all the sudden someone starts shooting at him....his defense mechanism is to reden his eyes to kinda give a warning....sort of like insects or like camelon when it camofluages itself when its in danger.

    Well a cameleon is a bad example but you get the point.

    I see what you mean; there were moments of thhat in the G1 cartoon as well, when Megatron's eyes would suddenly glow as he spoke.

    Scorpinok definately and Barricade almost certainly, but I don't think it's so obvious with Brawl. His eyelids are so narrow and oddly shaped it's hard to tell that those are even his eyes and there isn't much of a circle in each half like there is with Barricade.

    Brawl, Megatron, Blackout and Frenzy all have one pair. I think its just that the Cons aren't too picky about those sort of things like how many of those things you should have.

    I think some of the Cons having 4 eyes is sort of cool. Number of eyes seems to be an odd thing to get hung up over and that’s coming from a guy who’s favorite character is Shockwave.
