    Hi,
    Okay, movie transformers designs are new !
    People don't like the new Starscream face and Megatron too !
    Why not trying a mix with this brand new line and their "good old days look"...
    I just design a megatron-like head !
    I let you discover the new face (here come the critics !)

    don't like it. Macraptron did a cool remake over in the fanart section though.

    More proof the old designs probably won't work.

    Nice pic though.

    The only thing I don't like is the mouth. Everything else is cool!

    It's a good start in a direction that I like. I don't like the nose or mouth, they ned more work.

    I don't get it...why does an alien robot have eyes, a nose, and a mouth?

    Nothing against you, but given the direction they're apparently trying to take the film (ie, that these are ALIENS), this design would not work at all.

    I personally like the actuall movie design better. This one looks like if he was crossbred with Michael Jackson or something, no offense. This also doesn't belong in here. I would put it in the Fuzzy world personally, but the MOD's might put it int he Fan art section, which makes a ton of sense here. Peace out.

    I think every alien in the history of alien designs has either had eyes, a nose, or a mouth, besides who decided that aliens can have eyes, noses, or mouths? Last time I checked the description of what an alien looked like was unproven.

    Anyways, I think the design looks like a good start. I sure the guy who first came up with Transformers would be liking that design better then the movie design.

    Who the hell said that an alien had to be undistinguishable from a human, why do aliens HAVE to look so radically different, the argument swings the other side of the pendulum

    That's what they should do, but Micheal Bay wants more realism added to the film...sigh..

    Because aliens who look like aliens don't make relatable characters and it opens up the door for a movie that is mostly humans with the TFs just there shooting at stuff.
    I like the face. Even though it looks like he's wearing an Arachnos helmet from CoV, at least it's better than a bedpan.

    I'm biased... G1 Megs was my favorite Megatron... so I like it.

    Not a fan of this one. Too simple compared to the rest of the body.

    I do enjoy Macraptron's, however.

    Umm... because they're ALIENS from another world! As logic dictates, they shouldn't even look huminiod! Alien means something IS radically different then what we see as normal!

    logic dictates the characteristics of one's environment determine what they should look like.

    If Cybertron resembles a mechanized version of Earth, albeit more highly advanced, it's not improbable that the dominant species would be humanoid. Remember, Transformers are supposed to be able to interact with humans as well.
    Taking on more familiar traits may help that relationship.

    I mean seriously, from a psychological perspective, who are you going to identify with more, an insectoid looking Waspinator, or humanoid G1 Jazz?

    Well considering the G1 comics had humans trying to blow Jazz and his buddies to bits, and the Beast Wars cartoon had early humans worshipping Waspinator as a god... ;) 

    Anyway, the logic of Cybertron being like Earth (which it isn't very much), goes as far as humanoud being a good shape. There's no reason they would think and act the same way humans do or have human faces. Considering how alien these things are, and that they don't need a head with anything resembling human facial features, it's amazing their faces look as close to humans as they do. Now, by the end of the movie, once the TransFormers are starting to relate to humans and pick up our culture, then we can start to see them adapting to be more human-like.

    When I was a kid everyone thought Waspy was the shiznit. Yes, I am that young.
