    I keep seeing it and it always bugs the hell out of me.

    Anyone else wish Op would keep the facemask on?

    I just think he looks stupid. When you're watching it it doesn't look that bad, but in still photos he looks goofy.

    Not me. After the last four years, Optimus WITHOUT face is what I find odd.

    Not me. He looks like Batman.

    Though for some reason it never looks right when the camera's looking up at him and he's looking down.

    Honestly I think his mouthguard looks odd. Because it's basically the movie version's, which seems out of place on anything but movie Prime. I think something simpler would look better on that head. I also don't care for how, unlike the movies and Animated, it doesn't move when he talks.

    Dear God, yes! I cannot stand that voice with that face! It DOES NOT match! He needs a pronounced nose and face shield on at all times. It just doesn't look right. Or...his voice needs to be altered for when he has his facemask off...higher, younger, something like that, imho.

    Yes, just keep the plate over his mouth, it looks so much better!

    No. I miss seeing his nose, though.

    This. I've got no problem with the faceplate, but the so-subtle-it's-almost-non-existent nose does feel a little odd.

    I'm fine with the mouth, but the smoothness around it makes him look too young.

    I've actually grown to it, I used to hate it, but I'm now comfortable with it.

    Normally, yes.
    But with this CG model, having the faceplate on isn't much better.

    Personally, I kinda like it. Took a few re-watches to get used to the look though. What bugs me is that his mask has a nose guard, even though he has no nose...

    Prime needs to do the Tycho Brahe thing and get a replacement gold nose.

    I don't care about his mouth but I normally prefer the facemask. What really bothers me are his eyes.

    Yea, especially with the weird black lines where the chin is supposed to be. I am TIRED of the non-face plated Optimi, it needs to END.

    Much prefer my Optimus' except for Primal having a face plate. It's his iconic face.

    I. Agree.

    I am so tired of seeing Optimus without his faceplate. I mean it's nice to know the dude has a mouth and not just a speaker behind that thing, but come on! I think the only uses of that "gimmick" I can stand are Animated Prime and Optimus Primal. But most do not work for me. At all.

    Nope. I got over it when they first made it by mistake. Some, like... 15, 20 years ago? Get over it, kids, the guy has always had a face under there. To me, this is no different than watchng Wolverine walk around in his costume with the mask off.
