    Im gonna say I've grown really fond of the animated aesthetics and I'm not sure if this can be comparable to my initial shock of seeing the unique animated designs for the first time; but man, I'm really bothered at the lack of huge chins on the new guys. Rodimus and blackout wouldve looked a lot better with the exagerated features. Anyone else with me? Or am I just making a big deal of nothing?

    People complaining about a lack of big chins? I'm not in Bizarro world am I? To chickens still hatch from eggs? Do cats chase dogs? My grasp on reality balances on a knife's edge!

    Yeah, but you don't like Animated anyway, so why would he care what you think?

    Definately rodimus could use some more chin, but maybe they want to give a young feel for him, as if he is the newest Prime and he's very insecure.

    I kinda miss the chins myself.

    Yeah, it seems young characters and girls are allowed to have normal chins.

    Blackout would look cool with a big, long spiky version of his face.

    He's most likely a human villian, not a robot if it makes you sleep better.

    BlackOut got no problem with the lack of chin, he would be damned weird with it and no mouth.

    Now Rodimus, really, his chin is as big as Megatron's dunno why you guys are complaining.

    I'm good with 'em.

    Y'know, aside from the head, I've just realised who the comic Animated Sideswipe pic reminds me of...

    ...Dhalsim.

    Chins are in. Chins are out.

    It's all good as long as they don't wear chins after Labor Day.

    Ya'know, I think that a lot of thought has gone into the face designs in Animated. There is a lot of character in them, and it does a good job of lining up with the character's attitude.
