    He looks like a monkey. So much for the "his face is all CGI" argument.

    He kinda looks like a furby with the fur removed.

    His face could still end up being CGI...at least I HOPE it does. He sure looks ugly.

    I think the filmmakers are giving the Transformers faces that don't rely on "liquid metal." EG, someone's face like Optimus Prime or Soundwave would be easy to do, while someone like Starscream would be a little more difficult, because he actually has a real face.

    Personally, I think this is the WRONG way to go, and the "liquid metal" face could've easily been explained away by the Transformers putting a kind of hologram where the face should be.

    Doesn't he have a football-helmet-like mask, though?

    Otherwise, looks like I expected.

    you can see through parts of his head.

    WHY.

    I dont see how that face could possibly show any emotions beyond "OH GOD WHAT THE HELL AM I".

    Why would an alien robot do that when the face he's got is perfectly normal to his people? They're not going to get "human" faces until they've had more contact with humans. I bet your face freaks Bumblebee out. ;)

    There's probably more to it that got left off (or broken off, he's beat up pretty bad). His neck can't possibly consist of only one lead pipe.

    what the hell makes bay a moron? he never designed them, sure he may have approved it but so did the head honcho at Hasbro.

    i personally love it, i LOVE the way they completely redid transformers, they are Aliens, and now they look it too

    additional details like more wires and stuff will be added in CG, this is just the prop, but it wont be so much change that it will look any different, just tons more detail like the wires n pipes

    yeah, that's not fantastic. still, trying to remain optimistic until we see some motion... who knows what they'll spruce up with CG...
    not really feeling the autobrand on the forhead either.

    Michael Bay has never attempted to create a world like this. He didn't like the Transformers from the 1980s and he's making them all industrial. It's a COLD and HEARTLESS production. 10-20% of toy profits go into his pocket, he could give a flip for the world of cybertronian Transformers. If anyone has ever caught spongebob the bug eye bee looks like that character with a starfish as a face/mouth.

    Yes, it looks like someone skinned a Furby and stuck it on his shoulders.

    I think its the eyes. They look too... human?

    Yeah, maybe it's before he gets rebuilt

    As for the "liquid metal" faces, I drather they not have them. I think they should be all mechanical. Bay (or someone else) made the right call on mass-shifting being too unrealistic. I think not having mechinsms in place for their mouths would be wrong for the too.
