    I think I saw one on ROTF Megs' Chest. Very tiny though. Blackout's I think I saw on his chest.

    I guess having blatant faction symbols defeats the purpose of robots in disguise, but I also feel they aren't prominent enough.

    Hard to say with movie Cons about their symbols. Smaller bots like Frenzy, Scalpel, Alice (for obvious reasons), Scorponok etc don't have symbols. I would think Starscream would have them on his wings like other incarnations, but honestly I've yet to see them and in ROTF he had various markings, but no insignias. I agree Blackout had one, but don't know about Grindor. I like the fact the Fallen was made to symbolize Decepticons all eras over. Now when you see G1, TFTM, The Unicron Trilogy, Animated, etc, you'll think of him.

    Off-topic, thoughts on my new sig?

    Starscream had one on his forehead in TF1.

    Think they need a new marketing manager and strike some proper advertising deals.

    I think Megatron has more problems than faction symbols when it comes to disguise. :) 

    Maybe in the third film the faction symbols will be more prominent on the Autobots to show the humans they're not those mean old Decepticons.
    Didn't he have them on the discs he shot out?

    Maybe the CGI models really have the symbols somewhere, but they are hard to spot in the movies, with movement and all...It would be disturbing if the modelers forgot an important detail such as the symbol.

    Honestly, I don't even remember them on the discs. Certainly be different to have the symbol on the weapon projectiles as opposed to the bot firing them

    I know Mixmaster's were very prominant. I especially loved the Decepticon Mack truck hood ornament.

    You know, I don't remember seeing them at all on most of the Decepticons. Barricade is an obvious exception. Doesn't Starscream have one on one of his wings now as part of the tattoo design in addition to the head one?

    Yeah, because I just noticed the pic of Starscream in your sig does in fact have the Decepticon symbol on his forehead.

    Other than that, Barricade's the only Decepticon I ever saw who sported the Decepticon insignia.
