    So the other day I was watching ROTF again, and one thought led to another, until I concluded that Prime didn't rip of the Fallen's face.

    First, I was thinking that Optimus must be the runt of the litter of Primes. Compared to the Fallen and the other Primes, he's kinda short.

    Optimus doesn't look like any of the other Primes, either. Granted, we've only seen a couple glimpses of his Cybertronian form, but he didn't have all those things hanging all over him.

    So then I thought that maybe what we are actually seeing are a head dress of sorts... some type of Prime decoration or something.

    So FF to the end of ROTF when Optimus utters his dreadful line of face removal, he didn't actually remove the Fallen's face, because we saw his face after Optimus pryied off his head dress.

    So there you have it. Optimus didn't remove the Fallen's face; it was just a figure of speach.

    He'll rip off your face if you deny it (he has a reputation too keep).

    Yes, he ripped his face off. "Give me your face!" clears this stupid ass boards accusation. Also, youre logic indicates human beings dont have a face, just a "mask" covering our muscles. ITS A GOD DAMN FACE

    Think Optimus have a face-fetisch...in the 2007 movie he decapitates Bonecrusher, and try to pull off Megs' face..in ROTF he shoots Demolishor in the face and rips the Fallens face off...I would not like to meet Optimus in a dark alley, especially not if he is pissed. And I agree with jle1076...he did rip the Fallens face off.

    Wonder who's face will be in the danger zone in DOTM?

    He didn't even rip it off. He caused it to dislodge by applying pressure to the sides of his head with the bent halves of The Fallen's staff.

    He ripped of Fallen's face. What we saw was Fallen's robotic skull.

    (Shudder.)


    Well, that IS a good theory. But Fallen's face was torn off, and it revealed the inner workings.

    Honestly, I always thought that Prime ripping off his face was a metaphor because the Fallen's face was supposed to be the basis for the Decepticon insignia.

    Yeah, it was more like poping it off.

    But stupid-ass internet memes based off horrible lines find a way to persist even when logic gets in their way.

    Also I think the reason Optimus doesn't ressemble the other Primes is because he's a decendant, not an original. Sentinel who looks a lot like Optimus seems to support this idea.

    There is a difference with face taking and decapitation. He literaly ripped his face off but didnt sever his head. So yes he ripped his face off as Prime stated in the movie. Sometimes I wonder how people come up with these posts. sigh...
