    I can't remember exactly where this was said, but it was said a little bit ago that the Autobots' weakness would be "Their Eyes" or something along the lines like that.
    Well I was watching the Transformers TV Spot from Daytona, and I took really close glances at Optimus' face in an HD version of the spot....
    and it looks an awful lot like he's wearing something along the lines of sunglasses or something that is blocking his eyes...
    If I remember correctly don't the wreckers all have sunglasses on their figures?
    Could this be something to do with the Eyes weakness??
    But one thing is for sure, there is something very different with Optimus' face in the tv spot..
    Thoughts?

    Upgraded battle-mode faceplate maybe? Something like a visor covering his optics or something. Or maybe it's just due to the lighting and the angle.

    The only thing that makes me not think its the lighting, is even when the lighting was good on the shot, it showed a piece of his face there, and it was still very dark in the same region...and then it showed the rest of the face, and thats the picture up there.

    Maybe thats why bee looks so scared in the teasers. He's blind. though he looks more like he has a headach.The way in the annoucement trailer it goes up to sentinals eye maybe we will see that he is carrying a virus or somthing in his eye and thats why they left cybertron, because they were infected with a virus. Now the humans have developted the virus to use as a weapon.
    Remember. the main Autobots did not arrive till 2007 and bee would have gotten here a couple of years earlier at the most So there is no explanation for the Ark in 1969

    Could simply be a case in that split second that his optics were shut. They do blink and it is rather slow and less frequent compared to humans. *shrugs*

    Otherwise just badly lit/incomplete shot. Most everything else i've seen his optics have been glowing VERY bright and clear despite all the fast movement and debris.

    Yea that picture is just way too dark and i cant make anything out of it.

    I really hope their Optics arent a weakness and thus are wearing sunglasses/visors.

    The Wreckers do look like they have visors on but thats ok because they are new characters being introduced, plus i think they look awesome.

    But Optimus with a visor IMO would look pretty dumb and i hope thats not included.

    I don't understand how blue LEDs could be a weakness. Sounds lame.

    Could explain Peaugh mentioning that one of the Wreckers had somewhat of a baseball cap. Though, it's a bit odd for them to be affected by blindness, or it could be like an eclipse, Dark of the Moon = Solar eclipse?

    "Dark of the moon" is actually the term for when there is no moon in the night sky.

    So no, it has nothing to do with eclipses.

    ^^ Thats what I was saying..
    But I'm not pointing this out because I want Optimus to have shades or anything...itd be absolutely stupid and ridiculous for him to have them, I would hate it,
    but It's something I noticed and wanted to point out.
    We'll see what happens in almost 4 months!

    I don't think he'll have shades. We probably would have seen it on a toy or something. Its just the lighting in that shot. You can't get a good look at his face. And bumblebee doesn't have shades in the trailer. I think someone just mispoke when the said their weakness is their eyes. I think people might be taking this idea a lil too far.

    Id find it amusing if Shockwave's eye had some ability of blinding people/autobots or doing something of damage when they look into his eye? Obviously not turn to stone like Medusa, but something lol
