    4 little eyes on the side of his head look like his "real" eyes and the main one in the center look like just a nose? When I look at it this way he looks a bit more menacing

    I personally don't think their actual eyes, but more or less motion sensors, since he can't move his head.

    Big red nose - as in a menacing clown? XP

    I actually like the idea of motion sensors. *nod*

    So you're saying Lugnut has a glowing red nose?

    What? Is he gonna guide Megatron's sleigh through a blizzard or something on christmas?

    Maybe he has two sets of eyes - complex and simple, like a spider.

    I'm not a big fan of the idea that those little lights are eyes either. Just a little something that the designers added to make his head less plain looking.

    And speaking of Lugnut's eye, why can't he furrow his brow or show any emotion through them? Fan artists do it, and the show IS Animated. It's not like Lugnut is supposed to be emotionless like G1 Shockwave was...

    Perhaps his head is more armored than other decepticons? That's why he has different eyes, more hardy sensors, and explains why he can't express emotion through it.

    As for his lack of emotional expression threw his face, I think it's because he's a much more simplistically built Transformer. Basically built more for function than design. Thus giving a reason for that lack of emotional expression.

    Edit: Just thought of something. What if the reason Lugnut's "ALL HAIL MEGATRON!!!" 24-7, is because at some point during the Great War, Megatron saved Lugnut's life. Thus making Megatron responsible for Lugnut's annoying little habit. That would make for an interesting flashback scene.

    I'm pretty sure the big one isn't a nose as we saw it it closing camera style lots of times for "blink blink" expressions.

    His side eyes are probably there to help considering he can't turn his neck.

    I'm pretty sure that some time ago, one of the designers noted that Lugnut would have multiple eyes but no neck.

    So, I see them as eyes.

    a big red olfactory sensor at the center is stupid. I always assumed the red things were just optic sensors to make up for the lack of a neck.

    Lugnut kind of reminds me of Eva Unit 00 if it fused with the Spruce Moose, ate a few cheeseburgers, and had more eyes.

    I've long supported theories like this, although I don't see Lugnut as being that old. My scenario involves him being a younger bot who gratefully joined the Decepticons after being rescued during a post-Great War Con raid by Megatron on a Cybertronian city that had a gladiatorial arena. Lugnut's offical bio seems to indicate that he was a pit-fighter or gladiator of sorts - perhaps he was being kept as a gladiator-slave.

    :lolol  So true.

    The IDW comics apparently gonna show us what happened in the Great War at NEW KAON.

    KAON got fighting places like that in other continuitys.

    Lugnut is the KAON KRUSHER.

    I bet we'll finally get to see the big lug's backstory.

    Yeah, you have a good point there. I'm not sure how many of the Decepticons are actually from the Great War. Either way, I still think that a flashback showing Megatron saving Lugnut's life in some sort of situation would be a perfect explanation for Lugnut's extreme loyalty to him.
