    I just had a look at a couple of the posters up close, and I found that the characters' heads have these strange, Asian looking characters on them. Personally, I found them to be a *little* bit tacky, 'coz it's sort of like Japanese trademarks or something. However, it could also be a bit like having a tattoo or something... but not sure why the Transformers would do that to themselves (or others), especially so tiny.

    Oh yeah, there was a third set on Megs, but I didn't take a picture of it.

    Here are the crappy pics that I took from my crappy mobile:

    Yeah, it's a nice touch, but we've seen it before I'm afraid. Good work anyway, I wouldn't have noticed it.

    I saw the Optimus Prime voice changer helmet today at a K-mart. It had those symbols on it. Nice to see such detail.

    Saw the symbols in the newer posters just posted yesterday. It would be really cool if it was kind of like tattoos. It's common to see warriors tattooing themselves with battles won or lost.

    Any idea what they might mean? I noticed them when the posters first started popping up on the net. Never could figure out what they were.

    My guess? Cybertronian text. Perhaps like the battle tattoos mentioned above.
