    All good things so far, I''m interested about the mouth myself, they didn't bother me all that much in Galaxy Force, but then that's a cartoon... Bring the location to NY!! I want to be an extra in the film!!

    I like how they name U.S. cities and Canada as a location. That's a pretty big location to choose from

    I don't see the big deal with mouths. Beast Wars did an excellent job animating the mouths to match the voices, as have many CGI movies since then.

    Yeah I agree...the mouth movement in
    Beast Wars was pretty outstanding for a TV show.

    Why is everyone so against the manifold cover? That's what made Optimus Prime....to not have that is...just...so wrong. I hate seeing Optimus Prime with a mouth, I like the fact that he has a cover and only his eyes do all the emoting. It makes him that much more of an interesting character.

    I dont think thats an issue. The statement was that OP was going to be the easiest as he does not have a mouth to animate.

    It'd almost be like Batman without the ears. It's silly when you think about it, but just seems wrong without them.

    I think the concern about facial animations is more about having a metal face bending and warping like organic skin. Perhaps some people want to have a more rigid structure kind of like the robot that was in Judge Dredd (kind of had a puppet like mouth).

    yeah

    this is going to be a "realistic" approach to the machines and seeing their faces and mouths moving as if organic will seem awkward. I would think they want the mechanics to look as though they would exist and function in a realistic world. Itll be interesting to see what they do though.

    If they have wheeljack as a character he should be easy to animate..(blinking earlights)

    I don't see what the problem is in animating a face on a highly advanced technological creature from another planet, even if that creature is made of metal. I've never bought the idea that the Transformers are metal in the sense that we think of metal on our world. In my mind, the Transformers are/would be likely composed of nanotechnologies that form various structures and perform various functions similar to the cells of organic life. It is reasonable to presume that what looks like metal and reacts much like metal can also have the properties of a fluid.

    This idea might also explain how these technologically advanced machines heal themselves and do not seem to suffer from the dents and scrapes that our earth-based metals so easily get. I mean, a shopping cart is all it takes to put a serious dent into the side of my car. I'm supposed to believe that an autobot can take impacts thousands of times greater and still have sheetmetal left to form the vehicle mode?

    Prime without the mouthpiece just looks funny to me, but whatever. I guess it's easy to get over since he's been missing it in certain shows.
