    One thing that's interesting to note is that on the design for Animated Earth Mode Megatron is that the sides of his face, and his chin is clearly a darker color/different material then his face, but is it facial hair, ala Wheeljack and the Constructicons, or is it just "part of the helmet"?

    I was discussing this the other day with a friend who's recently gotten into Animated. I called it a beard (no moustache) and he thought it was just detailing/different materials, so what do you think it is?

    It's deffinately just face detail, like on G1 Megatron's chin. All the guys with facial hair thus far have it looking very much like what it is, like side burns, moustaches, beards and the like.

    Megatron has the sort of Autobot-insignia goatee most Transformers have, but to be honest, I never really saw this as the robot's version of facial hair - only with movie Prime it kind of felt like a real goatee.

    I'm pretty sure the black bars around his face is just creepy evil-y shadow, meant to put emphasis on Megatron's gloomy face.

    I like to think that's a robo-goatee Megs is wearing - something akin to those funky beards that pharoahs used to wear. The fact that his headgear somewhat resembles a pharoah's headdress only strengthens this image in my eyes.

    Yeah, that's what I thought it looked like.

    I don't think that was called for. Also, he meant 'is the detail meant to REPRESENT facial hair', like on Wreck-Gar, Wheeljack, Mixmaster and Scrapper, among a few others. Not actually BE real hair.

    No. Maybe Mixmaster, but not Megatron.

    If he had a soul, it would be a soul patch. But it's just a patch.

    Facial hair - Transformers Wiki :rolleyes: 

    Exactly! I see a rather strong pharoahic element to his head design, beyond just the homage to Super Megatron.

    I vouch war paint of something. To cut the glare and stuff. I'm just thinking independently, don't mind me.
