    Think about it, back in G1 Prime didn't really have a face (Just Eye's and a faceplate). Now, in ROTF, he takes the faces of others so they know how it feels to not have a face.

    Could it be some all be some stupid joke?

    This is just a weird thought, I'm not one of those people that finds homages in every single scene.

    I don't think Bay and company are witty enough to come up with something like that.

    Yeah. I think the writers just put it in there for fun.

    All the "NO" posts were expected, I don't really belive it was a joke myself. It was just a thought...

    Never really thought of it like that. Maybe, who knows what goes around in Bay's mind.

    Interesting thought. I don't think it is meant to be a joke. Not sure if the writers or Bay would go that far. I like the idea of Prime being naffed off at having a minimal face and taking others as compensation - quality!

    If it was a joke, it wasn't funny. The line itself didn't feel like it belonged in that scene.

    Best explanation I've heard so far. It tops my "face fetish" theory.

    Not at all. I think it was simply to give Optimus a "thing" in the movie. Good as anything I guess...

    Optimus is just trying to save face in the movie. Save it in this nice bucket of faces he's been collecting.

    It was a cheesy line but I don't think it was meant as a joke. If you look at what's going on, it's hard to think he would be making a joke in the heat of the moment. Just before that, the Fallen does grab Optimus'es head and try to snap his neck or something so it might be Prime returning the favor. Also remember Prime is a kind of headhunter. In the first one he sticks his sword into Bonecrusher's face. In this one he shoots Demolisher in the head. He splits Grindor's face in half, and makes Megatron shoot himself in the eye.
